We went to Ali Baba on our frst night in San Juan. The restaurant decor looks very authentic for a Turkish cuisine. The menu is varied however the prices are little steep in comparison to the same quantity and quality we get in Toronto for the same types of dishes. The service is prompt and the servers were very friendly... More

This was maybe my fifth trip to San Juan and probably my third trip to Ali Baba. This is one of my favorite places to eat in San Juan. The staff is very friendly. I ate the lamb ottoman casserole and enjoyed the white sangria with it. Both were very good. The bread you get is amazing. I'd come here... More

Food is delicious and creative ! go with a open mind and empty stomach, portions are generous and prices are decent. Good service and restaurant decoration is on point. I will definitely visit it again when back in San Juan.

Firstly, this place is tucked to the left and behind Starbucks down an alcove. We opted for something different while at the Marriott and boy was that a good thing. The food was amazing and the atmosphere charming. The chef does an amazing job with the lamb. Great staff, food, and atmosphere.

We've been at Ali Baba Restaurant before; good to know that it keeps the excellent tasty food and superb service. A couple of years ago I published in tripadvisor with a picture; it maintains the quality and the atmosphere. We order many appetizers so we can have the taste of different flavors and preparations. All met the expectations. We drank... More

(I reviewed on yelp as well, they were just so good I wanted to review them on here as well) I have been let down by highly rated Mediterranean, middle eastern restaurants before and let me say...this did not disappoint. I was feeling a little bloated from all my gastronomic adventures on the island and was afraid of making it... More
