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.

My husband had the lamb and prawn souvlaki I had the beef donair, both our meals were so fresh and had so much flavour. We split an appetizer, calamari, probably one of the best we have had.... More

The vegetarian platter at Aladdins in Nanaimo is fabulous. If you like your food tasty not bland, with exotic spices & flavours, then try this. You don't have to be a vegetarian to love it, that's for sure. Some people complain about the atmosphere. I like it there. It's totally unpretentious. Great food, great service, & great Middle Eastern music... More

I have been here twice now, and the first time was excellent. I had calamari as an appy and the lamb wrap, which were both delicious. I loved how the calamari was grilled, and our server was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. However, the second time I went, our server was very rude. It was busy, and she was the only... More
