Ali Baba receives my highest rating.

Location can't be beat.  If you are traveling in from the burbs you are walking distance to universities, museums, places of worship ...
Ali Baba also offers take-out and delivery to satisfy that craving in your own house if so chosen.  For combination of taste quality, value and convenience Ali Baba receives my highest rating.

Always delicious and of the highest quality! Everything I have tried is great but the loobee, chicken shish kabob and house salad dressing are some of my favorites! Oh and the Hummus is the best I have ever had! Quiet, relaxed atmosphere that fosters great conversations is an added bonus!

Hands down my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. The food is consistently excellent and VERY reasonably priced. I especially love the cheese pie and baked kibbee, but everything on the menu is pretty delicious!
