Specializing in Persian/Lebanese fare, AliBaba has taken top honors in this category for three years in a row for several reasons: The food tastes great; the prices are reasonable; and the service is friendly. Vegetarians and omnivores will both be happy with the selections on the menu, which include kabobs, shawarma, gyros and falafel. The sampler plates are perfect for sharing and feature all the flavors—hummus, tabbouli, baba ghnoouj, stuffed grape leaves, tahini sauce—that define Middle Eastern cuisine. While the salad may appear to be pretty ordinary, wait until the signature mint dressing hits your taste buds. It's heavenly.
