I expected the place to have a good Mediterranean food selection, but found that other than a few kebabs, it was generally Chicago (Kronos brand) gyros and doners. They pile on lots of meat, so it's not a bad deal. I guess I just expected more choices.Decor and atmosphere are pretty sterile.

The gyros are huge, the size of my head and a total mess to eat... and worth every bite! They are quite good. The other dishes are a bit too authentic for me.. But the GYROS!!!

Went for a quick lunch. Did the 10 $ chicken gyro platter. Hummus smaller portion and average taste quality. Chicken well seasons good portion. Salad boring and pita blan Average experience. Would not repeat.

Have ordered the gyros at least 5 times. Always great, a giant gyro (they don't skimp on the meat) and they allow you to select toppings if you want.

On our way from C-bus to Cincy to catch the Xavier/Northwestern soccer match, we realized it would be prudent to grab a quick bite. Ali Babba looked like a decent spot, so in we went. We were very pleased with our meal, which was flavorful and massive gyros. I would come back another time.

I went to Ali Baba with a friend for lunch. It's not anything special. Don't get me wrong though. Nothing was bad, but nothing was great either.

I love this place! I've only had the chicken kabobs plate, so I can only speak to that, but I would like to take home a bucket full of their hummus. It s amazing! I love the selection that Ali Baba's has, and I love how fresh their ingredients are. On more than one occasion, I have taken my leftovers... More

I stopped here for lunch while driving on Red Bank Road to try something different. This is a small place - maybe 12 tables - and I would call it a cross between Chipolte and Subway with a Mediterranean character. Sandwiches and plates are made to order like Chipolte from a limited selection of ingredients, like Subway If you look... More

Excellent middle eastern food. The place is run by a team of friendly Uzbek guys from Samarkand. The restaurant is nothing much, pretty basic, but clean. We enjoyed the falafel, grape leaves, the steak kabob. Everything was fresh and well done. We had been at other middle eastern places in Cincinnati and so far this is the best. We will... More

We love to go to Ali Baba on a lazy Sunday when we want great food with no fuss. The food is amazing: the chicken kebab is the best thing I've ever had! Falafel, schwarma, and gyro are excellent as well. No matter what you order, the host will call you up to the counter just before it's ready and... More
