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

Went with my Arab friend there, we were hungry after a paddleboarding morning in Condado, ordered baba ghanoush, the texture was not well made, had tried better in other places. Pita bread was nice. Lamb gyro was meatless with too many salad. The baklava was really good. Resuming the food quality was normal. However the place is great, ideal for... More

This was the only restaurant our family ate at twice during our vacation! We enjoyed all the middle eastern dishes offered. Something for everyone.

Very nice Turkish restaurant. The atmosphere and décor is very good; provides a good feel of the middle east. Family enjoyed and loved the food. Arrived quickly as we were starving. Especially as it was Halal. Service was good and prompt. A nice touch with talking to the owner; as he took out time to have a chat. Definitely worth... More

My wife was pregnant and craving hummus. We have an "ours" middle eastern restaurant that we escape to whenever we can, but Ali Baba immediately made us question our escape restaurant. The fresh bread and aromatic scents coming from the kitchen entice you to wonder how good the food really is. In one word, AWESOME! From the hummus, to the... More

The atmosphere was like we stepped into authentic turkey, which was a nice change of pace. The food was more authentic than we've had in a long time. It was a full culinary adventure and one we will look forward to again. Lamb chops medium rare were perfect. Also on the appetizers order half orders so you can experience more... More

Wow, this really was an awesome restaurant. We had every type of hummus for appetizer and they all were great. The lamb was an excellent dinner choice and the baklava was a perfect ending to the dinner. The owner was around many times to check on us and make sure everything was perfect. I really hope to be back here... More
