Delicious, authentic and family run! I highly recommend the chicken shawarma and the Baba Fries! Or pick up a quick falafel sandwich for a quick lunch!

While on business trips, I like to enjoy meals that remind me of home. Well, one of our favorite dishes is moussaka followed up with baklava. Ali Baba's Kitchen fulfilled that need and not only was everything so good, but it was fresh too. It...More

Been coming here for many years. Their middle eastern food is always terrific. The lamb kebab is the best and tenderest lamb I've ever had. Shawarmas are really outstanding as well. Good food, great people, sketchy service but no big deal.

Thank goodness for some diversity in Newbury Park's restaurant scene. Every meal we have at Ali Baba's is excellent. The quality is consistently good.

Food is fantastic but the restaurant itself is small and dingy. I would do take-outs than dine in. Their falafels are amazing!!

I've been eating this type of food since the 1970s. It doesn't get any better than this place anywhere. Great humus and falafel. This is a small casual place, not fine dining. But we will definitely be back.

I like good food, but I don't like to cook. My husband is of Lebanese descent so needs a Middle Eastern food fix frequently. This food is not Lebanese, but some dishes are like my husband's mom used to make. So we are regulars here.....sometimes...More

Go for the healthy and tasty Mediterranean menu provided by Khalil. No ambience, it's in a small shopping center, but the all day flow of a great variety of people vouch for the well accepted vitals.
