The menu is very comprehensive, so chances are great that you'll find something you enjoy. You might also find it challenging to narrow down your selection. The dishes are excellent -- very tasty -- and the portions are large, so considering sharing.

We visit Aladdin regularly. The owner makes people feel welcome and ensures that each person has a good experience. They offer the usual variety of Mediterranean foods. All are very tasty and the portions provide enough to bring some home for a future treat.
