I was born and raised in Germany. I moved here a few years back and have yet to find a good German restaurant. Ali Baba’s Doner is a close as you can get to German Street food without actually going. The place is a quaint, homely and it feels like I’m back home. It is run by a man and his wife and you can tell he puts his heart and soul into EVERY. SINGLE. ORDER. If you’ve been to Germany or are German this WILL be your new favorite place. I’d give 30 stars if I could. The 10-15 minute wait is well worth the food. Please support this place with all you can.

One word. Incredible. If you’re looking to grab a bite from a Mom & Pop shop, this is the place. Ali Baba Doner is ran by one man who puts his heart and soul into his food. Although you may wait for other orders ahead of you, know that it’s worth it. Support this restaurant and give it a visit - you won’t regret it.

Ali Baba Donor is a little gem that deserves your attention. This is a smaller establishment that seats only about 8-10 people, but this is a prime example of how size doesn't matter. The food was fantastic, and the owner/host was extremely helpful. They were very conversational and seem to really enjoy serving people amazing food. I would highly recommend this to anyone. One interesting aspect was watching the owners assemble the food. Through the glass panel I watched him meticulously layer each ingredient into the my sandwich; I was entranced. He genuinely wanted the food to look as good as it tasted, and because he put the time into making it presentable - I think it really adds to the experience. I will definitely be coming back. The fries are an absolute must-try; some of the freshest I've had in a very long time. (No photo because I ate them too fast) Fun fact: they speak English, Turkish and German!
