The go to place for lunch or dinner in downtown. Excellent food. I've had almost every item on the menu- all delicious. Cozy place, the owner was often in the kitchen, and super friendly. The wait staff definitely friendly and helpful. Wonderful atmosphere for a affordable intimate evening meal, then walk along the seawalk...

Cozy Lebanese place close to the harbour. Great for lunch or dinner, as our lunch was served, the portions was quite nice for the value. Not very expensive, lamb souvlaki was great, did need a little more salt, but great for the healthier living. Friendly staff/server, very enjoyable meal. Will return for more when back in Nanaimo.

Walking along the Nanaimo street, looking for a good spot to eat, all the restaurants were pretty much empty, until we paused outside Aladdin's! One table left, just for us, in this fairly small and noisily happy spot. Must be good food, we thought. And it was! This little cafe didn't disappoint. We enjoyed our shared meal with skewers of...

We were there in our third vacation week and this is the healthiest meal we've had so far. I had the rosemary chicken and my husband had the skewers. Bothe were excellent! The tzatziki was also great and the waitress was such a sweetheart. Top ranking!

Found this restaurant to offer a well rounded menu. We ordered the chicken souvlaki and lamb loin "special of the day". Both were very good and portions were generous. Service was friendly. Would go back for sure.

The place is small but it offers very nice Middle East dishes of excellent quality. Service is very friendly and prices are reasonable. The walls are decorated with naive drawings of Disney's "Aladdin" characters as well as some bizarre objects which give a "different" atmosphere to the place.

I live in Nanaimo and I have been going to Alladins since the beginning. If you are going for dinner I would suggest you try the special they have on that night especially if it is the Lamb Shank. The only thing that has gone downhill is the Lasagna. It has a burnt taste to it. Maybe it's just me?... More

We were in town for our daughter's regatta at Long Lake and I had to visit again. This time we brought the kids. Loved the ambiance and the kafta was amazing. Finished off with a Turkish coffee and ouzo. Once again, thanks so much and the server (Reanna - sorry if the spelling is wrong) was amazing and even remembered... More
