Had wonderful home made hummus and my favorite baba ghanoush (Eggplant ). Perfect. So tired of grocery store dips. Bread was fresh and served warm. Had falafel and kibbee with just a touch of cinnamon. Tabouli was great and so was Jerusalem salad. Music played was very cultural. It was very pleasant , the waiter was quick to bring food... More

Excellent! Made the trip worth it. Falafel is good but not the best I had. Only place around Charleston I found to get it though.

The lamb was great and tender as before. But the spanakopita was cold. The extra feta cheese and olives at the complimentary station was very nice.

We ate here for dinner and love the fresh salads and the delicious vegetarian options. The portions are large, and prices reasonable. The service is very efficient.

This restaurant is in a strip mall near Hwy 17 in Mt Pleasant. I remember I came here a few times years ago., This time I went back with some friends. We had 3 dishes which we liked much and they are served with some pita bread and sauces. Our waiter was formal and was also quick, but most importantly,... More

Found this by accident. After shopping at HT we saw this little restaurant and decide Med food would be a nice change. Glad we did. The shawrina kebob I had was very good and served in a pita pocket which I liked. Sauce was served on the side which I also liked as I could control how much to put... More

I love Med food. This was just average at best. After eating in many Med restaurants in the DC area this does not fill the need. Waiter was good, place a little blah

I felt strange as this place had very different menu compared to other Ali Baba locations I have been before. Very limited menu options make it not ideal options if your group have different tastes.

This food is fantastic every time we go! I always look forward to eating here when I am in Charleston. It is a small place, but the service is great. Our favorites are the kofta kabob dinner plate and the shawirma dinner plate. Ask for the tahini sauce and their hot sauce - SO good! The Jerusalem salad is a... More

Stopped in for a quick lunch, I was in a hurry for an appointment. I asked the waiter for something quick and he suggested the lamb shawarma. It was quick, tasty as were all the accompaniments. Seemed to be some regulars eating there which is a good sign
