Ali Baba Cafe
Posted by anonymous on 01/25/2009
I had read reviews that there was no corking fee at the cafe. We brought liquor, ordered food and a couple of shishas. After about forty five minutes the waitress "reminded" us that there was a $5 corking fee for everyone consuming liquor. She said she thought she had mentioned that to us. At this point we were stuck and had not choice but to pay it. The waitress was also rude, and complained about us in spite of the large bill and big tip she received. In the past we had never had to pay such a fee and the service was great. Maybe we were just there on an off night (or the new waitress...4 months is still new). I'm not sure if we will return or not.

I loved the place it was great tonight but, the atmosphere could have been better. The food was excellent. I would like to see it look livlier. Great hospitality and alot of friendly people

the old men seem like millesters the way they stare at us, the food is awesome, the hookahs pretty good too. the service is so slow in the american side of the cafe. it was so last year to go there. they should consider remodeling or something so it can be the hot spot again

I went there and the food was great, they have two rooms, one for arabic and one for american music so you cant go wrong plus the waitress are hot.

Very good food, and good value, the place has a TV that gets a little too loud for people to hear each other. and service is extremely slow, if you go there you have to expect yourself to stay for at least 3 hours. The food is authentic, they have a good chef, they make good meals and salads. the Hookahs are flavorful and clean
