We loved the food we ordered, curry chicken and chops of lambs. Very tasty, not too spicy, good rice. at first, it lacked a little sauce but the waitress gave us 2 different ones when we asked. There are no tables for two, there. Only tables of 4 and 6. Since it was late, we were seated at a table... More

Even for bein on lake George prices were high. They did not have a Greek salad with any meat in it. Meat was a funny texture for the lamb gyro would not recommend.

Food here is yum! Staff are friendly and food is high quality and served quickly. Serving sizes are a little on the small size. Had to stop and get a second meal somewhere else afterwards.

If you're looking for good authentic food try this spot. The curry dishes are exceptional. The lavish bread is made right in front of your eyes. The tea is delish. The veggie falafel with chickpea is awesome. Make sure to ask for a turkish treat when done.

We had dinner with two other couples. My only complaint was that they do not have it any where that they will not split the check. The service was fast and very good. The food was really good and had alot of different flavors. They give you a type of bread before dinner that is excellent. The 6 of us... More

WARNING: Thought I should add this warning for any folks that try to order over the holidays. Tried to order takeout (as suggested by another Yelp review) on the 4th of July. I kept calling the place and no one answered the phone. Decided that maybe it was busy, so I went over to order. Restaurant wasn't packed yet, but... More

I've been coming to this place for about three years now and every time I go to Lake George, I can't wait to step in and eat my heart out. I've ordered everything on the menu and have not been disappointed yet. I have two girls ages 5 and 8 and they just love Ali Baba's. This year, the menu... More

Food was okay. They didn't have flavors that we asked for. Serviced by a young inexperienced kid who kept having to ask questions and didn't know how to count back change properly.
