Ali Baba is owned and managed by a restaurateur that has been in the business in Morgantown for decades. His restaurants are always excellent and although he has moved his business several times, the locals always follow. The food is excellent - nice selection of middle eastern entrees and for lunch a nice buffet is offered.
There's an expression in the general aviation (GA) community about fly somewhere for "a $100 hamburger". This is an exception to that rule - many people fly to Morgantown to have lunch or dinner at Ali Baba because it is the 'exception' to that rule. Leave room for dessert - the baklava is great.
The ambiance is quiet but alive; the view out the window is often great if you are a GA enthusiast or pilot (planes you wished you could afford parked outside).

I liked the place, staff were decent with great service, everyone acknowledges us, food was good. A little on the high end with price.

The food is consistently delicious and the owner, Elias, is warm and welcoming. Always a good choice.

Funny location, we followed the signs and still had trouble finding this restaurant at the airport. It's upstairs... keep looking because it was worth the trouble. Good food, nice atmosphere and decor. Definitely recommend.

Great Mediterranean/Middle Eastern specialties, but the grilled chicken dinner salad with cayenne onion crisps is one of my favorite things to eat in the world. The chicken is deliciously marinated, there's a ton of it, and I swear I've never gotten a weird piece. (Not sure where they get chickens with absolutely no tendons or connective tissue.) Really good house-made ranch dressing too. Very consistent high quality (and delicious) food for a little family-run place. I prefer Ali Baba to most of the fancier, more expensive alternatives in town.
