Had the lunch buffet for $11.95 twice and really enjoyed the selection of unique dishes. Tabouli, hummus, grain salads, kebob meats, baba ganoush and pita were among the dishes I tried on the buffet. The food was really fresh especially for a buffet.

The atmosphere reminded me of my home when I was young. The food was excellent. Most of my my friends that came with me never had Middle Eastern food before. We all had the buffet and they all were going back for multiple plates of food. DELICIOUS! The belly dancer was talented and very sweet. The hookah was tasty. I... More

The buffet allowed me to try a variety of new foods. Though I wasn't personally keen on several of the dishes, the overall experience was great. While I was trying to decide what to choose, the chef came over and explained many of the dishes and gave recommendations based on our conversation. The wait staff was attentive and we didn't...

I went to this restaurant with a friend from the Middle East. We were hoping for some authentic GOOD Middle Eastern cuisine. Starting with the hummus, it was a tremendous disappointment. How can anyone screw up hummus - ground chick peas, garlic, olive oil, cumin and a bit of lemon? It tasted like paste. My guess is that they scooped... More

Ali Baba has been located here for a long time and has changed ownership over the years, but the buffet has been consistently good. Count on it being noisy during he cabaret nights.

It is not easy to get really good mediterranean food. The weekly lunch buffet is a wonderful place to get fresh salads, soups, falafel, babaganoush and other salads. The staff is attentive and makes sure the food is turned over and fresh. They offer the choice of a vegetarian side and/or a meat side. The deserts are a nice touch.

Arrived there to enjoy a musical cabaret in their "The Persian Room". . . and the experience was incredibly odd. The Cabaret itself was BRILLIANT - but the people talking, eating, ignoring, and being rude all mixed in with people who came specifically for the cabaret were difficult to deal with. Actually got PUNCHED in the back by a patron... More

They do a lunch buffet but the food quality is poor at times and good other times. Service is always terrible. The food is very inconsistent and it is overpriced for the selection they offer.
