Been coming here for many years. Their middle eastern food is always terrific. The lamb kebab is the best and tenderest lamb I've ever had. Shawarmas are really outstanding as well. Good food, great people, sketchy service but no big deal.

Thank goodness for some diversity in Newbury Park's restaurant scene. Every meal we have at Ali Baba's is excellent. The quality is consistently good.

Food is fantastic but the restaurant itself is small and dingy. I would do take-outs than dine in. Their falafels are amazing!!

I've been eating this type of food since the 1970s. It doesn't get any better than this place anywhere. Great humus and falafel. This is a small casual place, not fine dining. But we will definitely be back.

I have been eating at this restaurant for over 10 years and I have never been disappointed. The owner, Khalil, is a very experienced cook from the Middle East and he is totally hands-on. Every time I go there he is in the kitchen. That's my kind of chef! It's as close to eating Middle Eastern at home as you... More

I like good food, but I don't like to cook. My husband is of Lebanese descent so needs a Middle Eastern food fix frequently. This food is not Lebanese, but some dishes are like my husband's mom used to make. So we are regulars here.....sometimes 2 or 3 times a week. I've never had a bad meal here. The food... More

Go for the healthy and tasty Mediterranean menu provided by Khalil. No ambience, it's in a small shopping center, but the all day flow of a great variety of people vouch for the well accepted vitals.

Nice family restaurant. We usually order it to take home. Their Shwarma is amazing. Hummus is awesome also.

I have yet to have a dish that disappoints me even when I don't order the Chicken Shwarma (someone in your party must order the Chicken Shwarma.) The service can be a bit spotty as it is usually a teenager handling the orders but it's never bad service as the owner keeps them to their tasks. I'm not sure it... More

This is a small restaurant that serves home made middle eastern foods. The prices are reasonable and the owner, Khalil, is nice to talk to. When I moved to this area, it was the 1st place my husband took me to. His mother is Lebanese, and some of Khalil's cooking reminded him of home. The food is fresh with good... More
