“Awesome, fresh food, personal service, hidden gem”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is a small hidden gem in Sudbury. Food was very fresh and prepared perfectly. We were a group of four and weren't sure what to order as it was our first time here. The chef came to our table and he offered to make platters of various dishes for us to try. Everything was fantastic. I will be back for sure. It was great to try something a little different.

“A little gem”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Once you find this little restaurant it will become one of your favourites. You can order from the menu but it is better to let the chef/owner make those decisions for you. Just let him know how hot you would like the main dishes. His salads are wonderful...huge platter of Greek salad for a larger group...and as others have said, his chicken dishes are tasty. He said next time we go he will do something with lamb for us. Something to look forward to.

“Delicious taste of the Mediterranean”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

I recently went with my family for a Mediterranean feast. Ali met us at the door, politely introduced himself, waited for us all to get comfortable and asked basically how hungry and if we liked spicy. He made up the menu right then and there and asked if there were any issues. One in our party was vegetarian so he quickly changed one of the planned plates.

The foods timing was perfect and the quality of everything was extremely fresh. I'm certain he had boughten all his ingredients that day.

The service, food and price are all extremely appropriate. This guy is working his way up in Sudbury and I can tell he's already developing a solid clientele. I can only see good things in his future.

My recommendations; try the Greek salad, chicken Marsala, and his speciality desert flambé banana and ice cream.

“King of Chicken”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We go here for special occasions, like anniversaries or Christmas parties with colleagues. The chef/owner's big specialty is creamy Chicken Masala. We also highly recommend his roasted banana dessert. His fish and vegetarian dishes are also excellent. We haven't had anything that wasn't very well prepared. If it is quiet, the chef/owner likes to chat with the customers, so don't be surprised if he comes out to personally see how you like the food.

Ali Baba's gets a lot of takeout orders. It's located at the corner of Martindale and Ontario, just east of Martindale and Lorne. The interior of the building is much nicer than the exterior.
