Ordered dinner for three tonight even though we were four. Portions are huge and we still had leftovers. Food was great and the owner/chef made sure everything was good for us. I recommend them.

We ordered take out because of the carona virus situation. The food was delicious as usual and the portions a good size. He is always friendly. We wish to support small restaurants that are not a chain. This is the place to go. Vegetables are...fresh and the food is good. A large take out menu considering the situation. We will be back.More

We have eaten here many times over the years and the food and service have always been excellent. I rate it only average this time because on our last visit our order was taken after others who arrived after us, the service was slow, and...we were overcharged. We requested that it be recalculated and received some money back, but still not the correct amount. I would normally ascribe all of this to them being understaffed (there was only one greeter/server and they have a Help Wanted sign in the window), but the problem is the old-fashioned cash register that does not produce an itemized bill. That method works OK when there is time to verify things with them, but when they are busy it is simply not good enough. We will come back, as we like the food and the staff, but will be paying closer attention to the bill next time.More

We were on the road through Northern ON and desperate for healthy, tasty, non-fast food. Found Ali Baba Cafe online, and though we arrived late, as they were closing, they served us with kindness and grace. The chicken shawarma was well prepared, fresh, delicious, perfectly...seasoned with Lebanese 5-spice, heat was exactly medium which we'd ordered, and the green salad was crunchy and just made. We devoured it in the truck, and were so very grateful. Staff and chef extremely kind and thoughtful. Portion size, cost, and freshness all good, highly recommend this local delight to weary travellers as well.More

It was nice to talk to the owner-chef to specify the amount of spice wanted. The portions were ample (lots to take home for another meal). The food was served piping hot.

Have driven by many a time and decided to make a lunch date with a friend at Ali Baba's. Not disappointed. Food was delicious and filling. Nothing fancy about this place at all but go if you would like a hearty fresh meal.

If you're looking for a remarkable Mediterranean experience, look no further! Spice is just right, can get hotter if you prefer. Had the spicy chicken liver appetizer, and the seafood special; scallops were perfect, sauce complemented the seafood perfectly. Would go back every day!

The chef personally cooks your meal to perfection. Big portions. Very tasty. I dined here a number of times over years and I am impressed by the standard of food, portion sizes and personal touch.

The best restaurant meal that I have had in Sudbury in a long time. We were 3 couples and the owner served us the 4 daily specials family style. The dishes were all really good but the lamb chops were fantastic. Look forward to our...next visit.More
