Everything is good! Easily the best middle eastern food around. Very fresh, cooked to order. Our favorite Togo spot

The food is excellent, but the Lavash Bread is the best. Eating bread that looks like a rugby football is so much fun. I always have hummus, grape leaves, etc. with it along with their outstanding lentil soup. Everyone in our groups loves Ali Baba.

We were looking for Turkish food in the area and this place was highly recommended. The service was good and the food was pretty good as well. The huge Lavash bread made it worth it alone. The place was a little dirty though.

I've been here a number of times and really enjoy the piping hot lavash bread with a choice of dips. The servers, however, offer very little guidance on what things are, and the menu is even less helpful, despite the colored photos that fill it....More

My friend and I visited for a light lunch this time and every bite we had was a nostalgic experience. Actually all we ordered to share was a large Mixed Plate of Mezze (Mediterranean Appetizers) which one chooses from a large selection at the counter....More
