The falafel is made fresh and with yummy sesame seeds. And you mush try...the deserts ! The coconut cake is delish, so is the napoleon !!!More

Do a lot of traveling and found ourselves in the Victorville area. So happy we did. The food was fantastic and served as it would be in the Middle East. A casual, small, open diner style is just as you would find this in the...Middle East. Felt at home and welcome. If you're looking for 'authentic food and feel' this is your place. If you're looking for fancy, probably not. But I've never been to a good 'fancy' Middle Eastern restaurant.More

First time coming in the outside looked old and shabby but inside was nice and cool, we were a family of 5 the children like chicken fingers and fries, that plate came with only 1 piece of chicken so we thought that was no good...but the family meal for 30.00 was good only we did not know what Kafta was and we did not like it at all. The next time we will have Kabob's Only they are Wonderfull for $70.00 I know I would have liked to not go to Mc Donalds for the kids on the way home, But for the adults that was great. Just No Kafta.More

Out of the way, small mediterranean food restaurant in Victorville. We were driving back to Vegas from LA and needed dinner. Appears to be family run...slightly grumpy grandma on the register, but good food. Very casual, family friendly. Portions were quite large. Everything made from...scratch.More

Nice staff but really could use more appeal in the atmosphere department. I don't mind Triple D looking places, but with food made to order, need something to gaze at while waiting. I had a gyro, messy to eat like most gyros, falafel was fair,...bit too crunchy for me. Fair to middling Middle Eastern food. Not many choices for this type of food in the High Desert, sometimes you just gotta drive to a dive.More

The hummus and shawarma was fine, the gyros was no gyros, the meat was not eatable. Unfortunately the waitress also Booked the amount on the credit card twice.

We have been to Ala a Deen a few times in the past but this was the first time under the new owners. Glad to see that the food has not changed it is very good and everything tastes excellent the only issue we had...now is that the servings seem to be a bit smaller but we will still go back again.More

I work in Victorville and it’s a struggle to find good food-especially good relatively healthy food-among the abundance of fast food and chain restaurants. I went to this place for lunch due to the high reviews and it did not disappoint. I ordered the Meza...platter and ordered all vegetarian items: baba ganoush, ful, dolmas and tabouli. Everything was fresh and extremely flavorful-it hands down beats all the middle eastern restaurants I visit in San Diego. Highly recommended!More

Recently this eating establishment changed owners.We had a recent lunch which turned out to be a big disappointment. My wife had the falafal sandwich usually it has three pieces. This sandwich was very thin because the falafal had been mashed so it turned out to...be just one piece with very little lettuce and pickle and very little tahami. I had the beef shawarma sandwich which had the same type of mashed meat. But I found grizzle in my meat! When joe who owned Ala Al- deen before never served small portions of food and never with grizzle!! We ordered middle eastern tea in a kettle and it was only half filled. The new owners are cutting corners and trying to make a fast buck. I should have complained to the owner but I didnt that is why I am telling all of you here on trip advisor. From 2003 to 2017 we eat here up until it changed owners.My wife and I will never go this restaurant again If you want authentic arabric food los angeles area would be your only option.More

This restaurant has got to be the best Mediterranean food in town or nearby. The place is small and family owned. About 2 years ago I used to pass by and see it hut paid no attention until my kids classmate had them cater for...a party. It was a variety of food and all if it was tasty. This family owned business takes the time to make their food and each time I visit it gets only better. I highly recommend this to anyone. It's in the old part if town, but we'll with the visitMore
