oh yeah! This place I discovered accidentally with my student we stopped for lunch. We were supposed to stop by a Korean place next door but they were closed. They had all you can eat buffet for lunch for only $12. Includes everything!!!!!!!!!!!!! Services was excellent. Makes me want to come back.

Even with discount coupons the limited buffet selection and marginal quality of food isn't worth the price.

Went for the buffet and belly dancing show and enjoyed both. Buffet is not big but food is excellent and have a good variety. Hummus is great, hit hard the falafel, meats and chicken kebobs. Just 3 choices for dessert. Aris, greek beer was excellent. Would visit again if in this area.

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

We only use fresh, quality ingredients, and we only expect to provide amazing service.

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.
