Went for lunch and had excellent food and service. Menu size was perfect. Everything was fresh and atmosphere was nice with a downtown location. Will definitely be back.

We go to this restaurant/cafe every time we visit Nanaimo, and without fail the food is delicious. Our favorite dishes are chicken souvlaki, kafta kebab, donair Plate and Lamb Kebab. The servers are always pleasant and efficient. I wish there was a Lebanese restaurant like this one in Vancouver.

Had two of their grilled meat dishes for lunch. So good (tender, tasty, excellent rice and veg) that we ordered the same thing for take-out and had it again for dinner the same day! Best Middle Eastern/Mediterranean in BC, not fancy at all, just a regular casual place that obviously focuses on quality. Great service too.

I moved from Vancouver to Nanaimo approximately 13 years ago. When I came upon Alladin's restaurant I was floored! You see the owner of this fine establishment once owned another restaurant named DAR LEBENON and it was located on West Broadway in Vancouver! Like Alladin's, the restaurant was of smaller size in comparison to other city restaurants. DAR LEBENON was... More

We love Greek food so always search for places when we travel. This one was just OK. Somehow, the good wasn't as tasty as I would have liked. THe service was friendly.

We've eaten here a couple of times now on our way through Nanaimo. It's always full of locals which is always a good sign. There's lots of vegetarian choices. The prices are reasonable and the food is really good and plentiful. Everything tastes homemade, fresh and delicious. The spicy carrots are something just a little different and really good. One...

A small friendly place full of local residents. Prices are very reasonable, and portions large and tasty. A good deal for a nice dinner.

Generous portions of fresh food well seasoned and prepared! Thumbs up! Little hard to find and very unassuming decor, menu with casual friendly service.

Excellent, authentic (obviously made from scratch), Mediterranean food. Very friendly service. Also enjoyed a quick conversation with the chef/owner. We wish it was in our town. We hope to be back some day.
