This is the most chilled out place with great Mediterranean food and Hookah. The floor cushion seating makes you feel royal when you have the Hookah in your hand! Try the Kebabs and Gyro's which are the best in town. They recently started taking Credit cards too with 5% fee. In Hookah...I prefer the Watermelon mint or the Apple mint.

This was my go to place back in college for late night food and hookah. Sadly now it isn't quite the same, and the quality and prices both took a turn in the wrong directions. That aside, the food is still really good. Can't go wrong with the subs or the kebabs. I was in here often enough that many... More

I recommend this as a good place for takeout Middle Eastern food (not Greek). I like the baba ganouj (sp?) best and the hummus. Read other reviews to see problem with 10%charge for dine-in. You can get a good vegetarian combo plate for about $10. Some interesting soda choices.

One item was listed at 6.99 but was charged 10.99. Bill ended up being $10 higher than expected. When I asked for a breakdown of... More

Aladdin Express is a Middle Eastern and Italian restaurant with lots of character and atmosphere. From the outside, it doesn't look like much, but on the inside you feel like you walked into the Middle East. They play Middle Eastern music and there is an elabourate fountain in the middle of the dining area. The service was a little slow,... More

I used to order pizza from here. The pizza was always good, but the price seemed never to be the same two times in a row.

Whether you want pasta or a falafel, this place has got the most random (but yummy for those late night cravings) food... it's also a hookah bar if you need to wind down after a night of partying.
