I ate dinner here tonight with a friend. The staff were friendly and helpful. Everything they make here is delicious. The freshly made lavash bread is outstanding as were the appetizers and chicken shish I had. A great place for a meal in Troy.

Wonderful food. Beef/chicken durum is an excellent deal, incredible flavor in the meat and freshly made bread/wrap. Prices seem steep for food plates but as a student I eat a beef or chicken durum maybe once a week.

We went to Alibaba a few weeks ago for dinner. Good quality-price ratio, but service could be improved.
