We love food from other cultures/traditions. We will literally drive hours for it when it is great. We have gone to Aladdin Restaurant twice in the last few months - and both experiences were very positive. On our first visit we were greeted warmly, as if we'd been longstanding, loyal customers. Our server took the time to explain the food... More

I've eaten a lot of greek and turkish food, and even some lebanese, but this was the first time that I had swarma (I had the chicken swarma). I'm not sure how it relates to gyros (both are cooked on a vertical spit), but it seems the same. It also seemed a bit "thicker" and less shave like? But it... More

We absolutely love this place! We are vegetarians and is very difficult to find good vegetarian food. We all shared the vegetarian Aladdin platter, which has a lot of different dishes that are mouthwatering. The food tastes great and very fresh. The ambiance of the place is really nice, and we love that is adorned with lebanese decorations. My only... More

My husband's grandmother, the most beloved person in a Lebanese family, was born in Beirut Lebanon. He grew up enjoying all the traditional Lebanese dishes she prepared. I come from an Italian family but quickly fell in love with Lebanese food. Everything we ate at Aladdin Restaurant tasted just like his Sitti prepared it. The owner makes each dish with... More

This restaurant is located on a busy street but there is a good amount of parking. The atmosphere is pleasant and somewhat casual. Service was excellent, prompt and efficient. Our server was very knowledgeable on the menu and made some good suggestions. Now to the food! We started with the appetizer plate for 2, there was enough for 3 and... More

On a whim, my husband and I stopped in to try some new cuisine for lunch. We had never had Lebanese cuisine before, and we were in for a treat. The food was delicious! We shared a Maza Dish which was 2 falafel, 2 spinach pies, 2 cheese wraps, 2 kibbeh krass (ground beef with pine nuts and spices), and... More

From the outside, Aladdin's doesn't look like much (in a former life it may have been a gas station). The inside is diner-esque, but the meeting room is colorful and cozy. But you don't go to Aladdin for the decor. The food is delicious! I've only had vegeterian meals at Aladdin's, but each and every one was incredibly tasty. The... More

Food is delicious if you're a fan of healthy Lebanese food.Their homemade hummus is really good and the meats are fresh and well prepared. Baba Ghannouj is also a fab dish to try. Location is convenient and although the restaurant is nothing fancy, the staff is really friendly!!

It had been a while since I had eaten at Aladdin so I decided to try it for lunch. The food was tasty and fresh and I will definitely try it once again for dinner. Portions were generous and they were doing a very nice lunch business.

Excellent! Especially for the nearly vegan/health conscious eater I am! It's hard to find healthy food in a restaurant in this area. The vegetarian menu had its own full page. If you enjoy meat, there was plenty of that to choose from as well. The place is nothing fancy, but the waitresses were all very nice and helpful. It was... More
