Such a lovely experience.We had 5 people and we had a hot and cold vegetarian mezze. The food was great and the restaurant staff were so accommodating and friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We have been here a few times over the years with family and friends. We came in the last week of July as we were celebrating our anniversary but it was extremely disappointing and this will be our last visit. To start with, the prices...have been hiked so not cheap. The service was slow and took more than half an hour for the order to be taken. Despite repeated requests and reminders for our drinks to be served, we didn't get them until after we'd had our starters and was midway through our mains, 1hour and 30 mins later! They forgot part of our order, had to be reminded several times and got some of it mixed up. We requested for the chicken kebabs to be well done and it arrived burnt. The waitress insisted that they were fine. We just wanted to finish our meal at this point and leave. To top it all, there was a 10% service charge! Never again!More

The sausage was tasty for my starter and the chicken kebab was quite tasty but I can think of a similar restaurant in Bramhall that I think is definitely better. All in all, it was quite pleasant t but I wouldn’t go out of my...way to go back.More

Wonderful selection of tasty starters, it’s best to mix and share if in a group. Do leave some room for the main courses though as they are all excellent. The staff are very friendly, welcoming and give great service without being imposing. You can also...bring your own drink which is an added bonus. We’re so fortunate to have Aladdin’s in the area and long may it continue!More

Waited almost 40 minutes for someone to take the order And another an hour for the meal to be served. Also they took advantage of the help to eat scheme and put their prices up and the most annoying thing is the service charge. Not...going there any more!!More

We visited Aladdins this week having first come here 5 years ago. It used to be packed but now there were just 6 tables of people on a Saturday night. The food used to be extremely tasty but we were disappointed that the prices have...increased by approximately 50%. It is now expensive when compared to other restaurants in the area. We ordered the Bameah which had very little lamb in it. The food is served quickly and the atmosphere is casual so the prices should reflect that. We will not be returning.More

As a couple and family we have been coming here for 20 years, for many years this was a fantastic restaurant, amazing food, good atmosphere, well worth the 100 mile round trip drive. However on visiting the restaurant on the 31st Dec 2019 we were...sadly let down. The place was empty other than one table upstairs, the ground floor room was freezing cold despite the heating being on, the staff were visibly unhappy and arguing, just a few feet away from us. The food was reasonable although the salad was far too salty, the falafels were overdone and the mujadara wasn't up to standard. Regardless, there is more to a meal out other than just the food, I don't spend close to £100 on a meal and £25 on transport to get to that meal to sit in a cold room with staff who didn't want to be there. The waitress was doing her best, so this is not a dig at her, however she did not get the support she needed. This is a management problem. To then charge the 10% "service charge" was a further slap in the face. I don't know what's gone wrong with Aladdin, but I will instead be visiting a very similar middle eastern restaurant a few yards down the road, where the staff are happy to see you and you don't freeze while dining. I advise you do the same.More

My kids are older so not sure, I'd be surprised if they don't as there are many families that go. Best call to check though.
