We revisited this excellent Middle East restaurant with a former colleague who returned to Morgantown to visit after a long absence.

Airport restaurants are usually forgettable places, but we stopped in here for dinner over the weekend on a friend's recommendation and were very happy we did. Fresh, authentic mediterranean dishes were plentiful and perfectly executed. Tabouleh especially was done excellently. The feta was delicious, not too salty like it usually is. The service was great, a very friendly WVU student... More

Now that Elias has returned, Ali Baba is serving the marvelous dishes it has been known for. Marvelous Middle Eastern food!

The service was off, the Buffett was also slim picking. The food was average and not appealing enough to go back. The view was nice!!

What a surprise to go back to Morgantown and decades later to find Elias still at the helm! This restaurant set the high bar we've used to measure quality in Middle Eastern cuisine. I'm passionate about baba ganouge and hubby loves his tabouli salad; Ali Baba excels in both. Their meats are tender and there are so many choices to... More

So happy they are back. The wait staff is very friendly but just needs to get a little better with time management. The gyro meat is again awesome. Seems like it is maybe even better if that is possible.

We've dined at Ali Baba since it's earliest days in Westover. For the last several years we continued to patronize the restaurant under the new owners but increasingly were disappointed, particularly when they deviated from the original menu. After over 6 months being closed we were pleased to frequent the restaurant again and to be greeted by Elias at the... More

I've lived in Morgantown for almost 10 years and have always heard great things about Ali Baba. I'm a fairly picky eater so I really never had the urge to try this restaurant. I know many of my friends were very sad when this restaurant closed last year. Last night one of my friends wanted to try it since they... More

Ali Baba Morgantown WV Airport. Very nicely decorated and pleasant atmosphere. I had the lunch buffet which was not huge but it was nice. Starting out with Pita Bread, with Humus and Baba Ghannouj. I also had a little Tahini. Very well done. I then moved on to the Lamb Curry and the Lamb Meshwi. All was a very pleasant... More

After 36 years in business, one of Morgantown's legendary restaurants is no more. I went to the airport today, only to be told that Ali Baba is permanently out of business. I'm very sad. Ali Baba brought the first taste of Middle Eastern food to the Morgantown public. Sadly, the restaurant of late was not what it was back in... More
