What a cool atmosphere. You sit on sofa type seats around a low table. The food is awesome! Every dish we ordered was fresh and flavorful. I will definitely stop here again, And, if you are looking for a light meal, I highly recommend the house salad (I think that is what they call it) but it is an Israeli... More

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 me back any time.

My niece and her fiancé brought us here for dinner. Great atmosphere and the food was really good. We ordered appetizers and salads to share. We felt we had attentive service and left feeling very full.

Small and modest, but excellent food and great service. Our favorites are the Moroccan Chicken, eggplant salad (even if you don't think you would like it you should try it), Mediterranean salad (carrots, cucumbers, fresh and yummy). It's fun to sit around the table and share plates. Great casual vibe.

We are locals and have been going here for many years and it has simply always been superb. The menu is not huge but extensive enough, and I have eaten just about everything on the menu. I have eaten at middle eastern restaurants in New York, Chicago, Israel, and so forth. There is none better and few as good.

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to try it since we love middle eastern food. The restaurant is really cool on the inside the lights are dim and the seats are really cool. You have cushions and pillows to lean up against. The food was pretty good. It definitely was not the best Middle Eastern food i've... More

From the delicious marinated salad to the Morrocan (spicy) chicken, this was a tasty food exploration! The wait staff was very friendly and efficient... and the food... was amazing! The decor was exotic and very cool- beaded lamps, low tables, low light, and just very fun and different. Prices were very reasonable, and quality was fantastic!

Thank lafff
