In an unprepossessing storefront on Canada Street, Lake George's main drag, one might expect a "fast food" place; it isn't. Waiters provide table service. As mentioned in another review, a brightly burning wood oven provides a visual focus. A variety of Turkish foods are on...More

The food and service were great. The atmosphere is lovely. Tall tables with comfortable chairs. We really enjoyed our food and actually went twice during our four-day vacation.

There isn't much not to like about Middle Eastern food, so it was easy to choose Ali Baba Express for a mid-day meal with friends while on a weekend in Lake George. The restaurant features Turkish food; the restaurant is nicely decorated; and spotlessly clean....More

Our family of four ordered the hummos, Shish Kebob pizza, Greek salad, gyros, curried chicken and Iskender chicken. All were excellent and were served quickly enough. The service was very pleasant. The place was very clean as far as we could see and the interior...More

The saving grace at this restaurant is the lavash bread which is excellent, especially when served piping hot from the oven. We had the beef/lamb gyro and the falafel wrap; both were average, the falafels were undercooked. The hummus was good. We did takeout and...More

Small restaurant with quick, friendly service. Our family ordered the freshly made bread, Greek salad, gyro sandwich, chicken kabobs and the grilled meat platter which came with lamb, chicken and beef. Everything was excellent especially the gyro and the lamb chops. We enjoyed the meal...More
