My wife and I met our daughter and boyfriend at this place with little time for planning and research. We were thrilled with our good fortune in finding this Middle Eastern Gem, in West Reading no less!! The wait staff was warm and friendly from the start and was able to competently describe the menu items and how they are... More

Outstanding meal. Was visiting from New York and stopped in for lunch. We weren't expecting much, but were just blown away. Best lamb shush kebab ever--tender and juicy and flavorful. The veggie dishes were perfectly seasoned--especially loved the lemony fatoosh. Even the desserts were terrific, with Greek-style coffee. The waitress was wonderfully upbeat and on top of things and we... More

We were at this Lebanese owned restaurant for lunch and there were not many patrons. Although there was lots of activity in the kitchen area, it took a VERY long time first for our drinks to be served, then an even longer time for our not very complicated meal to be served. What was a bit annoying was even though... More

Aladdins is such a neat place. The staff are so friendly. The service is sometimes poor, where they will forget about something. I definitely wouldn't avoid it because of that. They are very busy and if you are understanding, they will give you something on the house! On fridays they have a live belly dancer! Definitely check it out!

Recently my husband, a friend, and I had dinner at Aladdin. The service was very friendly and we enjoyed our meal. We started with several appetizers: stuffed grape leaves--excellent, baba ganoosh--very good, and fried cauliflower--delicious. Portions were large--good for sharing. We then had fattoush, which was way too acidic--but no problem. As we left, we were given more to take... More

This place has been a great introduction for me of Mediterranean food and cuisine. Every time I come here I am able to try something new and find something tasty to enjoy. The humus here is quite delicious. I also highly suggest the rose flavored pudding. It is so light and such a wonderful way to finish off a meal.... More

I'm a repeat customer, I've stopped here every time I've gone to Reading and the food is of very good quality. This last visit was an eye-opener of the unpleasant kind as we saw the major price increases since our last visit! Now, don't misunderstand, the food was still of very good quality and the portions were of acceptable size... More

Travelling with a vegetarian colleague to Reading PA and found this "Mediterranean" restaurant which I would have called Middle Eastern. We had a lovely meal with bold dynamic flavours. The Lebanese style food was some of the better I have had, however I would have normally had meat as well...maybe I should stick with vegetarian in future. The decor could... More

This is a hidden gem that you should not miss. Every single thing is wonderful, and it is BYOB. I have gone there twice in the last week - it is that good.

This is a great go to restaurant because the food is always great. A terrific vegetarian platter brings my wife and I back time and again. I have always found this restaurant to be a dependable great place to get lebanese food that tastes great. Great simple hummus, falafel, cucumber dip, cheese sticks, and parsley salad are a few of...
