Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Consumer BEWARE!!!

Check your carry out food before you leave the store.

In Alibaba, you'll be charged ($39.99) for a combo (Beef, lamb and ground beef) but they intentionally give you beef steak, double ground beef and no lamb, while they charge you for the price of the lamb in their combo meal. The food is covered professionally and you think you'll have no reason to open the cover and check the food.
When you let them know about it, they admit that was what they gave you and they've charged you for the lamb combo without telling you!!!

They say they do that sometimes to their customers and they don't refund the customer!!!!

Alibaba restaurant lacks business integrity and honesty.

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Slow service, took a half hour to get our food. Coupons are worthless, you spend way more money using their coupons than if you did not. This restaurant forgot almost half of our order. We had to remind them that some of our food was missing.............and when it finally arrived we were done eating. Worst restaurant ever!

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

Surly, slow service. Weird pureed "lentil" soup with no discernible lentils - tasted like Campbell's cream of tomato with dry herb garnish. The beef, lamb, chicken were gristly, un-choice cuts, overcooked, unmarinated, tasteless. Hummous was ho-hum, baba ghanoush disappointingly bland. Only the tabouli salad had any flavor. WARNING: Prices are more expensive in person than listed on their website, overly generous gratuity added automatically to check. Smallish portions considering price. VERY UNSATISFYING MEAL.

Re: “Shish Kebab House of Tucson

Food is ok but the service is terrible. Last time I went I waited ten minutes for someone to come out to seat us or even acknowledge our existence. Just left. Haven't been back since.

Re: “Shish Kebab House of Tucson

Bad service and woefully over priced!

Finally got around to trying this place. Picked up the Lamb Shwarma with Rice for $13 and the Baklava for $3....

Firstly, they were 20 MINUTES LATE WITH MY ORDER so, needless to say that, by the time the bag finally actually showed up, I didn't really bother to check the contents, just blindly trusted that there was enough actual food in the containers to feed a person.

When I got home however, I opened it up to discover- I kid you not (I seriously had to get out my measuring cups to check) 1/4 cup of both a salad and some of the MOST TASTELESS AND DRIEST "Saffron" rice imaginable, and, in comparison to that skimpy portioning a "generous" 1/3 of a cup of tiny dribbles of meat with- and I had to count this part too, 4 of the tiniest "slices" of onion I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE outside of a McDonald's burger!!!!

Seriously, I had to get a spoon because the meat dribbles weren't even big enough to scoop up with a fork- much less spear! And, of course, it was pretty much fat and grizzle (how in the seven hells they managed to make actual FAT dry too- I honestly don't even want to know- I mean, I'm the first to admit that a chef's only as good as the quality of their ingredients- and that was obviously the majority of the problem but COME ON!!!!!)

Now, I'll grant, the baklava was good.... all three bites of it....

But, needless to say that given that I was starving at the time, I still managed to choke it down and, obviously, even after polishing everything off, I had to get up and make an ACTUAL dinner for myself.

Sooooo not going back because, I can only surmise that, they've somehow spied out the critics and gave them VIP treatment of some kind here- because these portions at these prices with this piss-poor service and bad quality of ingredients SERIOUSLY SUCKS!

Re: “AliBaba Persian and Mediterranean Restaurant

The food here is totally bland and NOTHING ordered between myself and the 3 other people I went with was remotely fresh. According to my friend, they got a new owner a couple years ago and that's when the food started to suck.
