This restaurant is a must if you love middle eastern food. Their rice is perfect and their lamb kabobs are out of the world. The environment is perfect as we loved the setup and the service. Will return again on our way back from Dover.

We come here regularly when we are visiting Delaware with both family and friends. Food is very tasty and reasonably priced. Always look forward to coming here. Wish we had a location near us in CT.

Hard to beat Ali Baba's for delightful food, welcoming people, and authentic middle eastern ambiance. The vegetarian combo appetizer was excellent, as was the Moroccan chicken and lamb kebab. Spicing was perfectly nuanced. The rice was not my favorite but the other dishes would bring...More
