Welcome to Ali Baba's Tunisian Cuisine.

Tunisian cuisine is a blend of Mediterranean and desert dweller's culinary traditions. Our food can be quite spicy, however we try to cater to customers tastes. As well as meat meals we also have falafel (vegetarian) as a option for those who desire this.

Our menu comprises of Kebabs, Pasta and Rice Meals, Gourmet Pizzas and Kascrutes. All meals come with side salads and you can choose from Lamb Chicken or Falafel. Medium or spicy flavour.

Ali Baba's Tunisian Cuisine was established in 2004 and is a family owned and operated business. Our aim is to provide flavoursome meals to our customers in a friendly relaxed environment.

Our Prices range from $4.50 up to $18.00. Great prices.

We have a range of fresh homemade deserts and biscuits.

Our meat is 100% halal.
