I love their Shawarma, Hummus, Falafel, and Sambosak. Whether I want fast take out or a more relaxed experience Ali Baba has delivered. I am not a local, it when I stay in the area this is always a regular stop.

This was some of the best food I have ever eaten. It was plentiful and every element of the food was perfect. The pita bread was the only thing which paled in comparison to everything else.
