This is a smaller restaurant downtown, right off Monument Circle and close to the shopping mall and several other stores. They staff all had heavy accents, but were very nice and understanding, repeating things when I couldn't quite understand.

I have been to Ali Baba's numerous times, the restaurant portion only (they have a Hooka Bar in the back). I inevitably get the chicken shawarma sandwich or meal. Both are good portion size, especially the rice that comes with the meal, or the rice/green beans cooked in tomato sauce you can order a la carte. The Pita bread is... More

The middle eastern food is so good. I switch back and between the spicy and normal Gyro with a salad. The restaurant is sparely decorated but it does not matter the food is so good. Prices are very reasonable.

The food is wonderful and authentic. I enjoy the variety on the lunch buffet which. Cost less than two Gyros which by the way are awesome! We enjoy lunch there regularly and the food is wonderful.

Love the spicy gyros, fries, and iced tea here. Service can be hit or miss however. Seems that when I'm always in a hurry, service is slow. But there have been several times where I've been in and out within 40 minutes for lunch.
