Aladdin always delivers very good mezes including hummus, fatuch, labneh, falafel and other regular treats. Mains are well prepared and tasty. Their Greek salad is a bit boring and could do with more varied vegetables and a better dressing. Service is always very good and the ambience is nice. While expensive, it's still value for money.

We tried this restaurant for the first time today and were very impressed. The food was fantastic! The meat was tender and we didn't have a single chewy bite. The restaurant was clean and well decorated. Portions were not large for the price, but we there was enough to satisfy us.

Very nice decorated restaurant. The food is okay. The meat was dry and tasteless. Service is good. There are better places in Addis.

Clean facility, very hospitable owner, and very good variety of food. And yes, very good falafel. A wonderful way to end a memorable trip to Southern Ethiopia where good food was hard to find.

Aladdin has classic Arabic dishes such as grilled chicken, humus or vine leafs, but also has some nice twists on Ethiopian Arabic cooking with some Arabic styled cooking but using Nile Perch.

I love middle eastern food, and this restaurant didn't disappoint. We ordered lots of small bits and bobs, and although I don't usually go for them, the falafel was amazing. We also shared a beef kebab, which was among the most tender meat I've eaten. The staff were attentive, the atmosphere was lovely and although it was a little hard... More
