Went to Ali Baba last night and will never go again! Haven't wanted to write it off the list, but it has been going down hill with every change of management cutting corners. I had so supported this place, even going right after 9-11 when there was so much backlash against middle eastern places of business.
The food was subpar with them messing up the chicken kabob, the signature dish. The chicken was flat piece of breast and tough. It looked more like it was a piece of frozen breast from a bag at Sam's or Costco. Rice was bland with only a small dot of butter poured over the center. One piece of onion and green pepper.
The poor server couldn't keep up since there was only one for the entire place on a Saturday night. Should have known that we were in trouble when we arrived at 7PM and there were only two other tables occupied.
We waited forever for service betweeen drinks and delivery of appetizers and again for the main course. Also wine was ordered but no water brought to wine drinkers. One member of the party had to get up from the table and go find the server to request a glass of water.
Management was rude and unresponsive to our complaints. We have been coming to this place for about 20 years. So with bad service, food and management we won't be back. I suspect many long time customers have already given up since this manager already has cut back the number of night during the week it is open. Probably the next cut back will the the final one as he goes out of business.,
Oh also giving it a terrible rating on atmosphere because it was very hot inside. Guess they have raised the theromostat trying to cut the bill. Even had a fan running because it was so warm in the dining room.
