“Our #1 and #2 dinning experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

We were staying across the street and used the Tripadvisor app to find a place for dinner. The Ali Baba had amazing reviews and for good reason! So glad we went here early in our trip, gave us time to try other restaurants and COME BACK. Best place we ate by far.

“Amazing Turkish restaurant!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

This is an amazing Turkish restaurant in San Juan. The lamb chops are to die for. Food was fantastic and staff provided excellent service. If you are in Puerto Rico, you must visit this joint!

“When you are tired of Puerto Rican food...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We went to Ali Baba Restaurant with 10 year old boy on Saturday evening (7:30pm). It took about 15 minutes from our hotel (Doubletree Hotel) to the restaurant by walk. The restaurant was located across Marriot San Juan Resort and a kind of hard to be seen from Ashford Ave.

It was busy and crowded, but everyone in the restaurant worked so hard. We needed to wait for 20 minutes to get our outside table. Their outside tables were located in entrance hallway. Some tables were even located in front of a next store which might be owned by same family.

We ordered Kasarli Pide (pizza-like bread), Beef Shish Kebab, Kofte (ground lamb meatball), Chicken Shish Kebab for kid, Sangria, Diet Coke, and Sam Adams. We worried if our son could eat their dishes, but he liked Kasarli Pide and Chicken Shish Kebab. They did not have kids menu, but they could make half portion for kids. Our food were very good and our waiter was very nice. It cost $97 including tips.

We will go back there when we are in San Juan.
