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.

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

We have enjoyed many meals at this little gem just outside of Orlando. We have had their buffet, as well as ordering off menu. Each time we have been greeted by the owners very warmly and the attentive staff keeps the hot tea coming. The beef kubideh, gormeh sabzi, and ghameh are my favorites and always cooked to perfection.

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.

Included in your review was also the mention of the need in our multicultural society for variety. We are pleased to provide this variety to our community and look forward to seeing you again.

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. 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.
