A gem

What a nice surprise to find a wonderful, rather upscale restaurant right next to Target on Highway 17. Middle Eastern cuisine, but they also cater to European tastes. I had the lentil soup (delicious) and an appetizer of moussaka. My husband had lamb souvlaki cooked to perfection. And the prices... read more

People who travel more on the Route 3 side of Fredericksburg, but along Route 17 is this little hidden gem. When I was looking for a place to sit, the hostess was nice and accommodating. Since I was only one guest, they didn't leave me hanging there with no hope of service and no refill in sight. I tried their... More

I had the lamb souvlaki platter. Small portion of lamb. Chose side salad and mixed veggies as my sides. Taste was fine but nothing out of the ordinary. Small portion of wine served in huge glass. Spouse had lentil soup and gyro. Soup had no lentils in it; evidently they blend the hell out of it. Taste was okay but... More

Traveling on business and the not so excited hotel desk kid suggested it. Almost didn't go but the Mediterranean menu looked good. Glad we did! The food was great, the service was great and well, the ambiance has all that a strip mall location can give. Very reasonably priced. We received a coupon from the hotel and with two guest... More

I use to live in Alexandria, VA they have VERY authentic Mediterranean and middle eastern food restaurants. I had high expectations until I read the menu. (CHICKEN WINGS??) no, just no... anyways I got hummus as an app. The pita bread was delish, but the Hummus was bland lacking lemon and garlic And taste like it was made from canned... More

The food in this place is surprisingly good for its location in a strip mall. I go every time I visit family in the area. I have tried several different dishes and have never been disappointed.

What a great dinner! Service was outstanding and the staff incredibly knowledgable about the menu and selections. One side of the restaurant is smoking with Hookah and the other is not. We were in the non smoking. Pleasant quiet decor. The food was super tasty and fresh. Dessert and coffee were perfect endings. We will drive up here again as... More

Great place for Arabic/Lebanese type food. Best place in Fredericksburg for this type of food. Healthy and delicious! Vegetarians have lots of choices, and there are meat options, lamb, beef, chicken, Tabbouleh, Moutabal/baba ghanoush,Fattoush,Shish tawook...yummy food, and you feel healthy afterwards!

We found ourselves in Fredericksburg at 9 PM and starving. The hotel only had a pub and it was mobbed with locals having a rowdy birthday bash. A quick walk around the corner past Target and Petco; that were now closed, we found Aladin. A true oasis, a nicely decorated space and great Mediterranean food. The Falafel was excellent.
