Had great service that was terrific with my young kids. Food was good with enough tasty vegetarian options. Ambience was very pleasant for Addis.

I have been to Aladdin a number of times. It was one of my favourite spots few years ago, but you can see that it is getting older and the menu is not the same. Still it is one of the good places in the city. Mind you it is not a cheap place, so you have to be prepared... More

Excellent food, excellent service. I have been here about 4 times now, and as a vegetarian it is one of my favourites in Addis. We always order many small dishes and share. Definitely will return.

You will feel at home when you visit Aladdin. The service is exceptional. We always choose several mezze dishes from the menu. Our favorites are tsaziki, chicken wings, fatush salad, homous and cheese borek.

I don't regularly go there, but occasionally. I love their consistency in the quality of the food. My favorites are their Mezzas, of course their main dishes are tasty too. Expensive but worth it.

Aladdin is a lebanese restaurant, the decoration and dress code of the service is really nice! but the food comparing with other lebaneses restaurants in other countries not really recommended and quite expensive comparing with ethiopian prices.

Great yogurt soup and tasty traditional food. Pita breads are great and the labna over average. A great place for business dinner.

Nicely decorated restaurant with helpful staff. Food consists of basic Greek culinary and at least our table's 8 different varieties were very tasty. Worth the booking in advance.

While not cheap, the food was really good. I can recommend the baked eggplant which was one of the most delicious I've eaten anywhere! Cheese borek also excellent.

Thank lahutton
