I went to grad school in Pittsburgh more than 20 years ago. I was pleased to find that Ali Baba was still in business, run by the same family, and had just about the same menu. Not a hint of the chain restaurant mentality. The best part: It is still a great place.
Everything is made from scratch. Delicious.
If your looking for great middle-eastern food this is the only place in the burgh. If you are looking for ambiance, look elsewhere.
