So you happen to be a vegetarian and feel slightly adventurous .. You are in for a nice treat here! They have a Plate system where you can pick your bread, and then pick salads, rice, sides..and if they have mango juice check if it is fresh and DO try it!
The spice hummus was delicious. The pita bread was too good, nice,soft and fluffy bring thrown right out of the oven. In salads I tried the parsley salad and an eggplant topped with spinach topping and grated carrot and cabbage garnish.. Which was suggested by my husband and it was really good!! For the sides I took eggplant and chickpeas .. Which was delicious!
The patio is nice, but could get a little noisy as it is right next to the main street.
Will definitely go back to try more:)

I always forget how much I like this place until I revisit it. Dozens of options and all of it's good! Some people seem to dislike the "cafeteria style" of Aladdin's. The only thing I can see wrong with it is that it makes deciding what you want an almost impossible task! The pita bread is fresh and delicious. The Hummus is the best in town. The veggies are all fresh and perfectly seasoned. The meats are all incredibly moist, flavorful and perfectly cooked. Come prepared to eat b/c they will FILL your plate. You think Niko Niko's has a good gyro?? Try it here. You won't be sorry. Other must haves are the roasted veggies, the spicy hummus, the fried potato ball, the chicken and spinach meatballs, the lamb kabob... You really can't go wrong here.

I am somewhat new to mediterranean food, so I don't know what everything is. At Aladdin's, all of the food is set out where you can see it and choose what you want. It is all very fresh and tastes great. The fresh baked pita bread was outstanding as well as the hummus. I had several different vegetable dishes, a salad, and hummus and I loved it all. I can't wait to go back to try more.

Quick food and tasty, for the most part. Not very traditional and not very orthodox but pretty acceptable Mediterranean dishes. Eggplants filled with a cream of spinach were completely new for me, yet tasty. Lentils: out of this world! Let yourself be guided by the owner, as to what to choose. Avoid the desserts here: unfortunately, they were not fresh at all. The ambiance was okay, noisy crowds seem to be the norm on Saturday evenings.
