Good but overpriced

The food was good. We left very, very, very full after just sharing a few mezze. The prices are way too high for the quality of the food, however. The same food that you get in the middle east for like $2.00 is around $15.00 (for an appetizer portion). It was very tasty, however. Also, it is... read more

I have been to Aladdin many times, and took a friend there as I was visiting Addis after being gone a year. The food did not disappoint. We had the mezza and pita bread and ate to our hearts content. My friend even went back at the end of her stay in Ethiopia. It is worth putting this on your... More

Aladdin has been a consistently good restaurant during the 15 years we've lived in Addis Ababa. They have great kabobs!

This is a great place to have Middle Eastern/ Lebanese food. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the place is nicely decorated with a pond in the restaurant. The four of us ordered a number of mezzo options, all of which were delicious. I loved the mixed grill which is very tasty. I'll be back.

The food was authentically Lebanese and very tasty. The staff are efficient and friendly. The layout gives plenty of space between tables and is moderately attractive. Peaceful and simple come to mind. The menu choice is extensive and the mezzo section gives a lot of flexibility. Prices are a little high for Addis but the quality justifies them. The menu... More

The restaurant is very nicely decorated and the staff makes you feel welcome. Food is ok, northern african style. They have live music on weekends, check with the restaurant, since it can be very loud. On the other hand, it is very nice atmospere.

This place and the Lebanese restaurant are the top two for me to enjoy humas, lebna, falafel, and tabbouleh. The mixed grill is usually a very safe and good bet. Staff is nice and location is great. The parking is terrible so that can be a problem.

A simple dining experience. The set up was cosy and simple- nothing fancy. Would be a great location for a casual dinner meal with friends. The food was nice and there was a good variety of food. We ordered lots of small starter dishes and ended up ordering too much food. The restaurant served Ethiopian wine and was located close... More

I had colleagues visiting from China and they wanted something "arabic" so I went on tripadvisor and saw Aladdin had good reviews. Was not disappointed! Everything was amazing. I appreciated that the waiter quickly told us that the portions are smaller in size. He recommended ordering 3 starters and 2 main dishes. First came the hummus which was great. Then... More
