Situated only a 10 minutes walk from the Hyatt Regency, this restaurant offers good Mediterranean fare, large portions at reasonable prices. Great dip like huumus and baba ganoush. Lamb chops are "to die for". I enjoyed tasting the Lebanese wines as well.

Had been once for dinner but would likely recommend the lunch buffet. Quality food and the ability to try things you wouldn’t normally get to try. Would arrive before noon if possible. Always a wait for lunch!

This restaurant was amazing. Even though it was all-you-can-eat smorgasbord, the food was as if it was served Gourmet and direct. I would bring any of my friends. Very authentic Middle Eastern Mediterranean food

While the dining room is rather large, it’s only service oriented, no decorative elements to speak of. But what the Ali Baba lacks in atmosphere, it more than compensates for in the variety of foods it offers and the efficiency of service. The service is...More

There is so much good food on the buffet you will run out of space on your plate fast so my advice is to look before you scoop. It can get crowded so get there early or late. One thing is for sure no matter...More

No, they do not serve dosa. Dosa is an Indian dish.
