Village Voice's Description
Offering an expansive combination of Syrian, Palestinian, and North African fare, Ali Baba provides a handful of dishes unavailable in the usual restaurant of this genre. Any of the homestyle lamb stews --which come in with a big plate of yellow rice--are totally dope, including one made with dried baby okra, and another featuring peas, carrots, and potatoes, both with an exceptional broth. Hummus is served Palestinian-style with chopped beef or cubed lamb, and the menu also dabbles in Moroccan cous cous, and the Syrian deep-fried, cracked wheat meat pies called kibbeh.
Tips from foursquare
The self-bottled vanilla cream soda and root beer is excellent.
Chicken Tikka Sandwich was pretty good. It had way too many tomatoes though.
great falafel sandwich and the hummus is no joke
Delicious healthy food, good service, reasonable prices -- there isn't enough I can see about this small but fantastic Hoboken gem. I eat here about twice a week.
Tandori chicken is good
