Brilliant Meal

We went here on our first evening in Dublin as it was the nearest place to our accommodation and we weren't disappointed . We both ordered lamb dishes which were really tasty. The service provided by the waitress was excellent from start to finish .

I bought a dealrush voucher for Aladdins and to be honest was not expecting much, I had passed this place many times but it never looked too exciting - how wrong I was. I visited on a Friday night, it was quite empty when we arrived but filled up nicely over the next half hour. The waitress was very friendly,... More

Food was superb, value unbelievable. So many restaurants are mean about bread, not here. we needed plenty of their delicious home made pitta to mop up the fantastic dips and sauces. Had never tried malphuf before, but it won't be the last time. The BYOB policy is great.

I had the humus as a starter, it was perfectly dressed and presented. My main course was char grilled salmon served on a bed of salad with spicy potatoes. A... More

One of the best made lamb meet I had. They don't serve alcohol but you can bring your own wine from nearby shop.

Who knew that I'd find such a gem especially after so much bangers and mash and fish and chips in town. Great food. Staff was friendly, but not outstanding. Close in proximity to hotel.

5 of us had dinner in Aladdins in early December. Despite it being in the middle of the busiest time of the year for the restaurant industry, the service and quality of the food was excellent. We were all very happy with our choices and would happily return here again. Aladdins is a BYOB, and unlike other restaurants they were... More

I 've eaten here several times now and have never had a bad meal. The fare is Middle Eastern with large portions. My starter is usually their falafel with , if in a big group, some shared humus (mouth-watering). Shish chicken - a beautifully barbecued chicken kebab - or Lamb Chilli Meshwe which has a sauce ( mild,medium or hot... More

I really liked everything about this cafe , the food was delicious and the waitress was very friendly and cheerful, I liked the music there and I didn't realize that the owner is an Egyptian until I met him which made me happy as I am an Egyptian too.

The predecessor to this restaurant, Keshk, was one of my favourite spots in the area. I was disappointed to learn that while this spot seems to be based on the original it is not nearly as good. A few minutes in we were asked to switch table to make room for a larger group. I got humus to start which... More
