Went here when we first moved to Nanaimo, we shared an appetizer platter which was very good! Honestly I was full and couldn't eat all of my main entree, which was Greek salad. Lots of vegetarian options and the staff was very friendly, even the owner came out to chat with us! That was a nice touch. my daughter had... More

Good restaurant if you want a quick bite for not too much money. I ordered a vegetarian plate for lunch which was OK but nothing to rave about.

We had been meaning to try out Aladdins and after reading Richard L's great review on this site about how popular the chef used to be in a similar Vancouver restaurant, we immediately went. What a fantastic experience. It was packed and you could tell there were a lot of return customers. I would recommend reservations on the weekend. The... More

We have been eating at Aladdins for several years and always enjoy it. We like to have family celebrations there as everyone, meat eaters and vegans alike, can find something tasty.

I love good Lebanese food and after receiving a recommendation by locals, I thought I'd try the vegetarian platter. The hummus, baba ghannouj and dolmades were delicious, but the spicy carrots were in a watery tomato sauce and weren't spicy, and the tabouleh was mostly just parsley. The service was very friendly and the restaurant itself was quaint (but I... More

Food was quite good. Service very good as well. We found that our meals were a little heavy on onions, so if you're not a big fan of onions consider going without.

Lunch at Alladins Cafe was very good. She had the donair, I had lamb shank in sauce, a large meal with feta salad, potatoes, and sweet pickled carrots. The spice combinations were delicious in mine, she enjoyed the flavour of her chicken in a bun very much. The cafe is right off the street not far from the downtown mall,... More

Excellent food, modest prices. Aladdin's Cafe is one of our favourite stops in Nanaimo. They serve Greek and Lebanese cuisine. Everything made on site, vegetarian dishes available and a Greek spinach pie that's the best I've eaten anywhere. The hummus dip is extraordinary. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, service is prompt and courteous. Have I mentioned the awesome Greek... More
