I used to shop there, but not anymore. I had such a bad experience with the woman, I think she owns the place. She offered and sold me a box of gyros cooked meat and later at home when I opened the box the meat had freezer burn, covered with ice crystals and looked old. The only date on the box was 14 months ago, definitely expired. When I went to return it, the same woman tried to tell me the meat is ok. When I insisted for my money back, she got mad and tossed me $11 instead of $11.99 that much I paid for the box. Bad attitude, poor business. Never will go there and will share this experience with others.
very friendly and helpful – I went to Ali Baba today to look around and possibly pick up a few ingredients. From what I understand, I also heard they have a new owner. Everyone there was very friendly. The man knew exactly what I needed and where they were. I got ingredients for chicken tikka masala, and it came out to be amazing. Also, their meat was very fresh. I thought it would be fun to try something new, and I liked it! I plan on going back!
Agree with neutral2, really bad – The staff who prepare the meat communicate badly with people, she always ask you to cut your meat by yourself if you don't like it the way how it cut. Also, do not answer question about the availability of certain items.
Anyway, You can always contact the Feds at the Consumer's Information Branch 1-866-461-3222--they will be able to tell you what to do in case of expired items or contaminated food --if they don't handle it themselves.
Bad – Hi neutral2, I agree with you on the bad treatment. Also, some items have been already expired or you may also find some items with no expiry date.
You can always report any spoild food or expired or have insect in it to the Kentucky Local Health Department.
VERY BAD TREATMENT rud – Bad place to shop at. If you are not in need for some middle eastern items and can do your shoping at a place where are professional customer service, do not shop there. Different prices each time, some snaks contain insects and others are expired, and I don't know if the law allow them to sell their items based on a verbaly pronounced price upon your question to them "how much is this item?" rather than a posted lable. Anyone have any idea about the law?
Also when the items are spoiled, contaminated, or expired, what is the department that control these issues in Kentucky? anyone knows?
Just an advice to not waste your money on expired items and always pay attention to the prices.
Bad Behaviour – It was a very bad experience with the people who work. They are bit arrogant. If you got any kind of preference in your meat size and request them they will not say they can't do it but they suggest you to cut your own meat. People will not expect this from them and even the owner also support them, I felt embarrassed with the behaviour and never went back. I rate them "0".
Whatcomesaround is Crazy – This is a good place to eat and no one should listen to whatcomesroundgoesround Instant Auctions is a Business in the same strip mall but the address is 441 not 411 if you are going to a review a place that is good to eat or drink at please make sure you at least know the area and have been to the place before. Obliviously you do not know how to use a computer and you should not be on sites like this.
Great Prices for food and drinks
Bad hours for food- Not Open for Lunch
Front For an EBAY RIP OFF – Same adress ...Instant Auctions 411 Southland Dr...Sent back Ipod and never got a dime back. They closed shop. Probably had to selling used beat up non working ipods for close to retail cost. Scams.Thiefs. Un-American No Values. Times are hard and they're stealing money. Beware of what you eat there if you dare to go.
Highly Recommended – Marikka's Has been a favorite of mine for a long time! The Paprika Schnitzel and thr Rahm Schnitzel are both good choices! I think I spelled those right? The paprika schnitzel is pork loin and the rahm schnitzel is veal. They give you huge portions at a reasonable price! You might need a to go box! They have a very extensive beer menu with beers from all over the world! Also a good place to go throw some darts!
Great fun! – Great place to hang out and have a few beers - they have it all - air hockey, pool tables, and darts!
