Very disappointed, online menu is not updated. The current menu is " watered down" and the prices are nearly doubled or more. The quality of food did not look worth the trip or dime.

Lebanese owner "Alex" is hands-on in the kitchen and serves a wicked "baklava"...IF you have room after his delicious kabobs, minimal grain tabouleh, homemade hummus and baba ganoush and other delicious mid-East goodies.. It is one of the few places in our area that regularly offers lamb dishes. The décor is charming, service is gracious and friendly, and they are... More

We drove here from Philly. Brenda was a very competent, helpful waitress. Alex, the owner, was very attentive. The food was amazing not limited to the: shwarma, falafel, pita,kabobs, hummus, baba ghanoush and an appetizer plate. We will come back for the belly dancer on Friday night.

I've been here at least 8-10 times over the past 3 years. The food is always incredible, but the service can be slow just based on wait staff. However, the food itself comes out pretty quick. Do yourself a favor and get the bruschetta. It's out of this world for flavor! Im a foodie, and it's life-changing. The fattoush, shawarma,and... More

I've been coming the the Aladdin for years and by far I love this place. Not only is the owner there most of the time, he is friendly and makes phenomenal Middle Eastern cuisine! They always use the freshest of ingredients and the flavors are delightful! I've taken groups of family and friends for belly dancing nights on Fridays. Lot's... More

You can almost always find the owner - Alex, and his lovely wife Amal cooking or serving their guests. Excellent Baba ghanoush and Hummus. Their kabobs and wraps are great. For a good lunch or dinner, this is a must go to place. Richard Monteiro

I like to try different ethnic foods, so in celebration of my birthday I chose to try middle eastern food. We got to the restaurant around 5:45 pm on a Saturday evening. It wasn't full when we arrived, but filled up as we dined. The staff was friendly and explained what everything was. The building was converted from a former... More

I visited this restaurant with my 2 year old. Great trip. Clean restaurant. Super attentive waitress/hostess. The fireplace was my daughter's favorite thing about the restaurant. The waitress made some recommendations for dinner and we took them all. it all great. we will be going back again.

Good food, attentive staff, and a unique atmosphere. I was with a large group, and we had a sampling of many of the foods. If you like middle eastern food, you should try it here. The shawarma chicken and chicken kebabs were my favorites. The combination of spices was so interesting. I tasted the falafel, they were tasty, hot and... More
