Stopped in here after finding the small restaurant while walking on Ashford Ave, It's kinda hidden in the back behind a Starbucks. We just wanted an afternoon snack and thought this place was perfect for that. Good hummus and pita, and a cheese that was...More

No people there as we walked by. The guy standing outside very rude...now we know why there are no people inside. Change your tune, maybe people would come inside.

That is very weird. What day or time was that? Normally we have enough customers and nobody is rude with our customers. I apoligize for the incident. .

Delicious food in a small intimate setting. Great staff. A real find in San Juan! Intimate 10 tables and cozy Turkish decor.

Another excellent restaurant on Ashford Ave. we had the combination platter for two. It included lamb chops, lamb confi, lamb meat balls and a shush kabob of chicken and beef. The platter was just as I remembered. Everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly.

My wife and I were very disappointed with Ali Baba restaurant. The food, compared to other Arabic type restaurants, was very average / poor. The meat was dry and the chicken was extremely thin, dry, and literally 2 inches by 1 inch small. The overall...More

You cannot go wrong here, we've been coming here for eight years, it's the best middle eastern eatery in all Puerto Rico. The owner is the real deal: he makes his own fantastic "puff" flatbread. No-I can't really discribe it; you just have to order...More

I am unsure if meat is halal. It is within walking distance from Condado Hilton. It is directly across from Marriott Stellaris in Condado. You won't be disappointed!
