Tasty food and good service

This nice little restaurant offers a warm environment and very good food. Besides, service is above average and prices are reasonable.

I just love this restaurant! It is just the perfect place to order different plates to share with friends. The atmosphere is good, and the food tasty. I would definitively recommend it!

Good location, good menu, nice decor, attentive service, parking, priced accordingly...I can do nothing but compliment everyone who was involved in our tasty dinner. I'm honestly perplexed by some of the negative reviews. In some cases they are factually incorrect, and in others they seem at best mean spirited. Of course, everyone has their own tastes and agendas, but I... More

The palace has good assortment of Mediterranean dish but for me not worth the price. It is only open during dinner. Location is very good as it is a walking distance from the airport ( 15 minutes ) and many other places. If you are in Addis and and really in need of that specific meal you could visit. Staff...

Given the amount of visitors to this restaurant (Ive been forced there too many times) I have very little to say by way of compliments! The service is very poor - staff seem to avoid your wave, the quantity of food served is abysmal and it is badly cooked (but is cooked) and the menu is over priced. Plus they... More

The people in Addis is generally really friendly and at Aladdins even more so. Service is fantastic and the food really good. I found it reasonably priced and can gladly recommend eating here rather than at the hotel you're staying at.

Great food - the felafel, humus and salads are super delicious. Aubergine, chicken and yogurt-based dishes are also really good. Great hospitality that has not changed a bit since I was introduced to Aladdin a couple of years ago. Ideal venue for business dinners, friends get together, etc. Fast service too!

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 very important to... More
