Food was freshly made and excellent taste. As the food is freshly prepared please plan some additional time. Friendly staff who also helps you to make the right choices. Interior would need an update, once this is done we would consider it for rating 5.

The route upstairs is bit shoddy, lighting is dim and furniture not so cosy, but food as such is quite tasty. We tried out pita bread with hummus and some exotic biriyani made out of vermicilli- both quite savory.

Frazer Town/Cox Town
Established in the early 1900s, Frazer Town is one of
the most upmarket residential
and commercial
neighbourhood in the Bangalore Cantonment from the
colonial era
and is being conserved in places to
preserve its low-rise, tree-filled character. A great
milieu of unity in diversity is visible on the streets

Inspired from the traditional kitchens of the Arab,Persian-descended Navayathi people, the authentic and delectable recipes have passed down the ages and tantalizingly await you at Alibaba. Savour wonderful dishes from a plethora of Middle Eastern cuisines like Navayathi, Arabian, Iranian, Lebanese, Mediterranean, Moroccan and Persian and wash it down with your drinks all the while swaying to intoxicating Arabic songs. Take your pick from the sumptuous meat dishes to the exotic fresh fish or the mouth-watering steam-cooked Bhatkali Biryani to the riches of vegetarian fare. What will also captivate you is the distinctive ambience inspired from the Arabian Nights. Marhaba!
