Came here for the first time with a friend. We had not found any good Mediterranean food in san diego & my friend's a harsh critic, she's Egyptian. Tried this place & it was pretty good, excellent chicken & lamb kabobs, pretty good kafta too! Realy chill place, not fancy, could do with more ambience, but it's the food that... More

Great food. The service was great. The wait staff were very attentive. The prices were very reasonable. Wide selection listed on the menu. I had the beef and lamb bryani. Very tasty.

Service was great and food was exceptional. Wish the restaurant was bigger. If you don't get there at 11:30 or 11:45 on weekdays, there will be a wait for a lunch table.

Had the vegetarian platter for lunch, which is really just 6 vegetarian appetizers and a salad. It was ok. Service was good and it was clean. Food didn't have a lot of flavor, but the dishes were all safe and neutral. I wouldn't come back again only because it wasn't remarkable and there are so many other restaurants in the... More

There is an excellent and wide-ranging menu choice. We had a Greek salad followed by a mezze, couldn't eat it all as there was so much. Fantastic. Very warm welcome received and excellent service from a staff member whose name we didn't get (nephew of the owner). The chef preparing the food was viewable, everything was freshly made and his...

Aladdin is simply surprisingly well executed. Another waiter than before, but equally engaging, helpful and efficient. Invited my Oceanside friends, who claim to be all knowing in everything gastronomic in San Diego.. ..they were equally impressed and assured me that it will on their list of "in" go to spots in the area ..excellent food, good service, reasonable prices...couldn't expect...

I was introduced to this place many years ago and it's been a favorite ever since. The food is authentic, creative and delicious and the servings are very generous (we typically share the chicken salad, for instance - it's huge!!). Service is always excellent and the waitstaff is very gregarious and helpful. One of my favorite "Go To" spots in... More

We ended there while we were looking for another place and it was definitely worth it. The food is delicious - we ordered the bbq chicken pizza and the mixed grill. Everything was very tasty. The service was great as well. We finished our meal with a delicious baklava. They also serve halal meat.

We were looking for a new place to get a good meal. There are many options in the area but not are all worthy of return trips. We decided to call the order in as one of friends came up sick. The online menu is accurate and even has photos of the dishes to give you a good idea of... More
