Ali Baba has been a well known name in the Orlando area over it's 20 year history. Nothing stays the same, however, and we have now become Ali Baba: House of Kabob, coming from a new ownership group emphasizing many bold new flavors, and a different management style. We only use fresh, quality ingredients, and we only expect to provide amazing service. The word Kabob in Farsi translates to Grill in english, and it's no coincidence that this new name change coincides with an emphasis on a great number of dishes cooked fresh on our authentic persian grill using 100% halal meat. When it comes to exotic cuisine, there is no place like Ali Baba House of Kabob. Experience the very best Mediterranean and Middle Eastern style restaurant experiance located within Central Florida. We offer an food that will immerse all your senses with an authentic mix of Lebonese, Persian, Turkish, and even some Indian cuisine elements. Ali Baba offers tantalizing dishes made from fresh and flavorful ingredients that emphasize bold flavor while also offering healthy choices. Our extravaganza dinner buffet and belly dance is unique and the best in Central Florida. All-you-can-eat lunch buffet gives you the freedom to experiment and discover new favorite dishes every day of the week, and a comfortable seated dining experience with a large menu of options to choose from. All dishes are "from scratch" using fresh exotic flavors and detailed preparation. You won't only taste the delicious and exotic food of Ali Baba House of Kabob, but you will also experience our warm hospitality and inviting culture.

"Mom and Pop shop" that tries hard

We went here for dinner with a Living Social coupon, which is a great way to try new restaurants. Right in the door, the service was excellent, very cordial and hospitable people paying close attention to the needs of the diners, without being at all intrusive.

Ok. So it's not what it used to be! But for Persian food in Longwood, it is awesome. I agree that if you are expecting the old e patience you will be let down. But for people that have never been here- go. The food is great. Make sure to visit on lunch and get the buffet. The baba ganoush... More

I had eaten here several times many years ago. We live over on beachside and have no Persian restaurants by us. We decided we would have lunch there. After all these years the food was still delicious!! My mom being a vegetarian had the hummus, falafel and tabouleh and she loved it! I had the chicken kabob (Shish Tavuk). It... More

What brought me to Ali Baba's was a deal I found on Groupon. The buffet was decent, the martinis tasted like pure juice, service was ok, but belly dancing show was great. We drove 40 minutes to get there, and in my opinion it wasn't worth it. If you're not local and don't have some sort of coupon I wouldn't... More

The food was flavorful, but it was cold and you could tell how it had been sitting out all day. The plates and cups were not clean! Something stuck on the inside of my cup and all the plates at the buffet had food stuck on them too. I told the waitress, she's was nice and took the dirty plate... More

My first time going a few years ago was nice. All you can eat buffet. After it was sold, with new management the quality has declined. I grew up with Middle Eastern food, hand made in my great-grandmother's kitchen so I think I can speak with a little authority. If you're dying for Mid-East food stop in, otherwise stop at... More
