Why Ali Baba's Indian Kitchen is special ?
Ali Baba’s has long been a fixture on Nanjing East Road, serving up some of the best Indian food to be found in Taipei.
Ali Baba is an Indian food restaurant that offers buffet service for weekend lunch. This spot has maintained a loyal customer base for many years among South Asian immigrants and the locals. At a glance, it can be hard to spot from the outside at first being a small entrance (main eating area is on the second floor).
The decor at Ali Baba’s is showing its age a bit — and dark brown is perhaps not the most inspiring choice of paint color for the ceiling — but the food consistently hits the mark, a fact highlighted by the number of South Asian habitues.
Ali Baba offers the wide range of Indian cuisine fans would expect; Garlic, curry, tandoori, all scratch the surface of what is found here. The dishes are not too spicy in order to appeal to more guests.
How to get to Ali Baba's Indian Kitchen?
Ali Baba's Indian Kitchen is located in downtown Taipei, just near the intersection of Jilin Rd. and Nanjing East Rd.

“Uber delicious & nothing is able to beat this - ever!” It is a small shop facing a street opposite First Hotel. Walking up a flight of stairs, there it was a very welcoming restaurant w staff waiting for you to enter & have a seat. To them, this could prolly be a fine dining restaurant as the table was setup nicely w napkins & everythin else. Atmosphere was romantic w dim lights & music matched the rafal frames on the wall. Masha'Allah. Orders were made, prices were very reasonable & service was impeccable! We were given complimentary papedums which was eaten w honey i think & it was gd! It was extremely delicious, me & my friend kept on gushing non-stop while eating the naan(s) - yes cuz we ordered the 4 diff types of naans.. tandoori chicken which was served on a hotplate (so chinese!!) & their popular mutton curry which is to die for!!! Omg! I so wanted to tapau back all the food to sg if it was only possible. I was even given an additional drink on the house cuz the owner saw us sharing one.. Yea prolly it might mean nothing to you, but service like this are the ones that makes that level up so high. Just Uber delicious & nothing is able to beat this - ever! Thank you sir for that utmost special dining experience out of the country.
