Dozens of curries, plenty of naan at Ali Baba

Date Posted: 2009-12-24

Indian chefs are touting the glories of their cooking at Ali Baba, restaurant featuring authentic cuisine at Chatanís Mihama, whipping out nearly a dozen different types of naan, freshly home-baked in the tandoor.

Ali Baba, an Indian restaurant chain with nine locations in Tokyo, has just opened its Okinawa restaurant on the second floor of the Ferris Wheel building at Mihama. The naan is already getting plenty of attention in its first five days open, but itís the more than 40 different curries that really sets Ali Baba apart from other Asian restaurants.

Curries are the heart of the extensive menu, but a hearty set of tandoori entrees starting at •1,250 are available. Otsumami sets are •950, sets for two are •2,800, lunch sets run •950 and Ali Baba even has bento for •650. Add the array of Asian beers at •500 and up, and youíve a dining experience thatís impossible to match.

Ali Baba is open Monday through Friday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and again 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, Sundays and national holidays Ali Baba is open straight through from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Reservations are available at (098) 936-5223.

The restaurant is casual, yet elegant. Ali Babaís managers proclaim their entrees to be Spicy and Healthy Indian, with a touch of Thai cuisine tossed in for good measure. The all-Indian staff caters to each customer, offering solid portions. A Saturday visitor was dazzled by the choice of four different curries, a naan and a long grain rice he claims never to have seen at any other restaurant, and a salad. Ali Baba offers choices of drinks that include lassi and oolong tea.
