I've been to Ali Baba 4 different times, and while it's convenient, my experience hasn't been positive. It's "okay" but it isn't anything spectacular. I keep wanting it to be more, but it just doesn't fit right for me.

There are not many places in Ecuador where you can have kebab, so we were delighted when we saw this place. The pita kebab they offer is really delicious! We also had the hummus and it was decent. The place looks more like a night...More

I have been here a month and have eaten here five or six times. The atmosphere is friendly and fun. I always order the lentil soup and the falafel plate. I am never disappointed.
