It was beyond freezing, the waitress was too busy flirting with her co worker, the food did not taste the same, and they are not practicing proper social distancing.
Very disappointed as this is one of our very favorite places.
Likely it will be a long time until we rerun.
Great service and excellent food, as always.
Tabouli salad and gyro meat with a side of hummus, beef kabobs and the wonderous garlic sauce. Portions big enough to have take-home for lunch tomorrow.
A glass of a nice Lebanese red wine. Wines from the Levant are a welcome change from French and harder to find in the DFW area.
The food was awesome as usual! Social distancing and Covid restrictions were in place. My husband and l had a nice relaxing evening.
Spectacular food. Huge portions. Quick service. Nice people.
The food was wonderful. I felt very safe social distancing the staff was very professional and happy to go back again soon.
Brought our friends from out of town to dinner. Food and service were exceptional!!
This is our “go to” restaurant before we go to the Plano Symphony at the Eisemann Center. It is delicious!
The ambiance is not great but the food we had was fabulous. My wife had sea bass and I had trout. Both were amazingly good. We also enjoyed an interesting Lebanese white wine for $28.
Very good Mediterranean food and large portions. Waitress was very friendly, efficient and helpful. The dining area is very casual. Come early before the crowds and it is very comfortable.
The food was great and the service was wonderful.
New Years Eve
Great service, great food!
Great service, fantastic food!
Hands down the BEST Mediterranean eats in Dallas! So much value for so much great food as well. Please come if you haven't already.
Birthday celebration for the daughter. Started with adult beverages, delicious cucumber martini and a nice glass of wine. Appetizer of feta and mixed olives with pita. Main course, hummus and meat combo, chicken kabob and grilled lamb chops. All delicious. Very attentive wait staff. The birthday girl received a nice piece of baklava with a birthday candle. We shared the dessert, which was tasty. Thanks to Ali Baba for a great evening.
Have dined here twice for dinner and been very happy both times. The place isn't fancy but it is clean and nice enough. The food is outstanding and the service is very warm and friendly. We love Ali Baba for a really good meal at a reasonable price.
Great food and service. This is our go to place when we want to eat Mediterranean food. Highly recommend it.
Everything tastes great and they have very generous servings.
Food& service were great. We went during Friday evening so the ambiance was very much for family
Food was very fresh, tasty and reasonably priced.
It was a little less than average. Slow service and we arrived right before the crowd.
Best Mediterranean food around here, by far! Highly recommended - especially for the cauliflower, tabouli and hummus.
All of the Meze we had were great. The gyro was crisp and juicy. Plus, their tsaziki has mint in it which was delicious.
Lots of gluten-free options. This is go to restaurant before attending shows at Eisenmann Center.
mediterranean food, buffet only in lunch.
Great...wonderful...will definitely make it a regular dining spot
Love this family owned restaurant. For Mediterranean food, it is exceptional. We order Mezza plate. It has everything on it you could possibly want including olives, dolmas (grape leaves), hummus, baba ghanouj, and tabouli. We almost always order this along with chicken kabobs. Chicken is flavorful but not overpowering and moist. Other table mates order lamb chops and the golden chicken. All were tasty. Saffron rice is lightest I have ever had. We have been going to Ali Baba since they were in their first location in Dallas on lower Greenville, more than 20 yrs ago. They are opening another new restaurant at Tollway and Park in Plano next week. Can’t wait to try it.
The saffron chicken was really good and it was called gluten free on their menu but the rice they have had vermicelli in it.... no other rice options on the dinner menu. They did sauté some vegetables for me that were very nice but I wanted rice to complete the gluten free meal.. it’s kinda a big miss on their part.
Best Mediterranean food in the world!
We have been to Ali Baba since they were on lower Greenville (almost yrs). Food is fabulous. Never had a bad meal. My favorite is the chicken kabob (always moist) and mezzo plate. The Roasted half chicken is nice and crispy (moist too) and is excellent as well. Lamb chops are small but very tasty and you get at least 6. Their saffron rice is so light and flavorful, it almost floats away. Don’t Forget the salad.
Great experience and incredible food! This place is great! Highly recommend!
We were visiting from Kansas City, and were more than impressed with the wonderful meal and service! Some of the best middle eastern food we have ever eating, even during our 10 years living in the San Francisco Bay Area! Portions are very large, and we ordered WAY too much food. But it was so good we took all the left overs, purchased a cooler and ice, and drove it all the way back to KC! Thank you SOO much for the amazing food!
The saffron chicken is amazing! Love coming here just for that.
Enjoyed everything. The lamb chops were delicious and the saffron chicken was perfect.
Outstanding, as usual, never disappointed when I dine here. Really authentic food. Friendly, prompt service.
Great food; good price; wonderful waitress. Very enjoyable experience.
Great service and great meal... best Med food around!
Food is pretty good but the atmosphere or lack of makes the dining experience less then
I've been to Ali Baba twice before this evening. I always had the buffet which I highly recommend. This time was dinner and while my dish was tasty it was too salty. My meat of my friend's kabab was also salty. The pita was warm and, as always, delicious. Our service was wonderful.
Delicious food and friendly service. Great gluten free menu!
Was a bit disappointed tonight , love this restaurant and the food, but it just wasn't up to par this night. The waitress was a bit pushy and reached across me a few times to pick up a plate. Finally I had to tell her that I would let her know when I was ready to have my plate picked up. They seemed very rushed when there was hardly any people in there. Not sure if I will return for a while.
