Stopped in for lunch one day and it was great! The beef Shawarma was amazing, and despite how busy the restaurant was, the service was great and quick. Definitely worth a try if you're near the area!

We were very excited to try this restaurant based on the reviews-especially since locals reviewed it well. We opted to eat outside after being cooped up in the car all day-very cozy outdoor dining option. The disappointment was our waitress who was not having a good day or just didn't have a great personality. We were thirsty for adult beverages... More

Having lived in Turkey, I am familiar with Mediterranean food. The highs: the pork chop plate was very good. Everything was cooked and seasoned well. The price was reasonable. The lows: I really did feel like I was back in Turkey. There were at least four flies, and they were such a nuisance that we went outside to the front... More

We found this spot on our own but after telling a family member from Jackson they also gave it rave reviews. You will find all the basic Mediterranean & Middle Eastern dishes here. And, based on our experience your meal will be a good one. We only did a quick lunch: hummus and Greek salad. But I would definitely put... More

This little restaurant doesn't necessarily look like it but it is 1 of the best in Jackson, frequently winning local awards for Best Mediterranean. It is in the charming Fondren District with several hospitals nearby - packed with hospital workers @lunchtime - so try to get there early for lunch. I favor the tilapia plate but my friends say the... More

I went to the Flowood location today. I had previously eaten at their other location and thought it was great but I was so disappointed today. It was VERY warm in the restaurant, so much so I almost walked out immediately, but I had gone out of my way to get there. One customer felt the same way apparently and... More

This was my moms first experience with Mediterranean Food and she loved it. The waitress asked if we wanted wheat or regular pita. I had not had wheat before so she brought us a mixture of the two. The waitress seamed somewhat agitated when I asked her for more of the regular as my tastes did not care for the... More

While visiting our son and daughter-in-law, we ordered take-out from the Aladdin Grill in Flowood, on Lakeland (Highway 25). My son and I went to pick up the order, which was ready to go and reasonably priced. We got an enormous amount of great-tasting food for $33.62. Among other things, we got a vegetarian plate (enough food for leftovers, with... More

This restaurant has become more and more popular, and the food, presentation, ambiance, and service have steadily improved over time too. I think they have the best hummus in Jackson. Unfortunately, they don't serve alcohol, and going next door to the liquor store for a poor selection of wine is not optimal.

I love Greek and Mediterranean food, and usually for lunch that is Keifer’s. While in the neighborhood on Saturday night we decided to try Aladdin on Lakeland. There was almost no one inside at the time but it got busier the longer we stayed. I was very impressed with my meal. I started out with the Spinach Pie which was... More
