I was the only client and it took half hour to get my vegetarian plate which was terrible (the pitas were cold). Furthermore the owner is rude. The place now is called "Billy's kitchen "

Horrible overpriced food. Ordered a lamb kebab, which was 37.5 BZD. It came out as 2 skewers, minimal meat, and some Cole slaw. My orange juice was watered down from concentrate. I would've been happier if Billy just asked for the money. He offered us...More

It's called Billy's Kitchen now, probably trying to evade the bad reviews from original name of Ali Baba. It's positioned as a hookah bar & grill, maybe the smoke is better but the food and price are horrible. First we were seated outside and the...More

Food was awful and caught the owner trying to rip us off with fictional food we never ordered or ate. San Pedro needs to boot this creepy fellow before someone dies from food poisoning.

Stopped every evening for a beer on our evening walk. Ate lamb kabobs for dinner one night. The owner is Lebanese. It's also a hookah bar. Lively at night. Cranks the belly dancing music up. Good place to check out for a good time!

Didn't order food so I can't relate but he gave us the best deal on a cart rental, drinks were inexpensive and good, and the owner was great! Will definitely be back in the future!!
