“Mouth watering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

Upon arrival, the smells of the cooking food is enough to make my mouth water. The hummus is incredible. The chicken shawarma, the rice, everything! It's just so good! The owner and staff are all very friendly and always remember our names. We go a few times a month.

“Fresh Mediterranean Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

The food here is so fresh and prepared with such care by Omar the owner. The falafal sandwich is delish and they allow dogs on the patio!

“The Falafel King in California.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

Yes they make more than just falafels.... however if you are looking for a tasty, fresh, green, with just enough spices falafel then you should go to Ali Baba Cafe in Simi Valley. Their salad is delicious, the shrimp kabob is great, and the soup is fantastic.
The owner / chef is full of energy and funny, it's good to see him when we go eat there.
The staff is lovely, special thanks to Omar, Danya, Rachel, and Matt.

Best regards.
SRLR.
