Just across the street from the San Juan Marriott Resort and close to Starbucks is a passageway which leads to the Ali Baba Turkish Restaurant. This proved to be the highlight of a fairly disappointing visit to San Juan. We are so glad that we...More

My wife and I were very disappointed with Ali Baba restaurant. The food, compared to other Arabic type restaurants, was very average / poor. The meat was dry and the chicken was extremely thin, dry, and literally 2 inches by 1 inch small. The overall...More

You cannot go wrong here, we've been coming here for eight years, it's the best middle eastern eatery in all Puerto Rico. The owner is the real deal: he makes his own fantastic "puff" flatbread. No-I can't really discribe it; you just have to order...More

Hidden restaurant in the back part of the building. Everything was very good. It was a place I've passed for years and now it's one of my must go to every vacation.

We had such a good time there. It's name is Turkish and I don't know why but it is so cool. There are vegan and vegetarian dishes and you can also enjoy watching football matches there.

You can't blame them for having a limited menu and service due to the hurricane, but still the food was average and so was the service. I've had better times in this restaurant, which is stuck behind a Starbucks on Ashford Avenue.

Delicious, authentic Middle Eastern food and attentive, but not overwhelming service. Will definitely eat here again and recommend it highly.

I am unsure if meat is halal. It is within walking distance from Condado Hilton. It is directly across from Marriott Stellaris in Condado. You won't be disappointed!
