I had the Ali Baba sampler platter so that I could try a few things. It was all good and the rice is amazing. Not sure what its cooked with but it has a light and very flavorful taste. The bread is great all around. Cant remember the name of it but I had the stuffed grape leaves which were... More

Ali Baba's Cafe is a hidden gem tucked away in a strip mall on Greenway Road. You do have to look carefully for it or you will miss it. Traditional MIddle Eastern cuisine is served here--and it's great. Don't miss out on their baklava for dessert either---it's also fantastic. Their prices are moderate and the place is very family friendly.... More

Stopped on my way home and got a carry out of their hummus and pita bread. They promised me the best I've ever had, and they were right. The hummus is the best I've found in the Phoenix metropolitan area and equal to my previous favorite from El Cajon, CA. The pita bread was softer and thicker than most and... More

We ended up coming here to eat on a Friday evening after discovering our favorite gyro place on 35th Ave & Bell had been shut down. We had driven by many times and heard many reviews, so decided to try it. The lady who greeted us was friendly and chatty and and took our orders immediately. There was only one... More

We decided to try a new Middle Easter restaurant last night and, as is always the case for us living in Goodyear, packed up the car for our own little Haj to this place light years away from suburbia. Oh well: if you can't deal with having to take a pilgrimage to eat in Phoenix, then don't move out to... More

Extremely friendly service, nice sized portions and delicious food. Setting is very pleasant. The falafel was delicious and melted in our mouths. The chicken and lamb were tender and flavorful.

This place is a fantastic find for Middle Eastern food! The food delicious and the customer service is outstanding! A lovely family owned business who takes care of everything. The family is so welcoming and accommodating to your wants and needs. Favorite items were the chicken shawerma sandwich, the falafel and the rice. The beef shawerma was very good. Also... More

There was only one waiter/server at Ali Baba's when I was there, and it took a while before we were served, but he went out of his way to make sure we were happy with our food, and it was some of the best middle eastern food I have eaten. So it was worth the wait. I highly recommend trying... More
