“Aladdin Great Food For All”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

You can bring your own alcohol, so that is awesome, but more so, is that this long established Montrose neighborhood Mediterranean restaurant is not too big, not too small, food always great, dependable friendly service, clean tables, clean restrooms, excellent prices, large portions. I come here every time I am in the area and the food is so good I would never have the same thing twice. At least a dozen sides, excellent hummus options, 4 tonight. The strawberry and fruit puree drinks are 100% addictive they are so good. Parking on the other hand...is tight. The clientele is some of everything, eclectic. DON'T hesitate to ask for a sample, or a vegan item, or white meat only chicken, etc. They are very accommodating. $10.49 for meat and two sides, and the portions are big..that's plenty for a big guy like me.

“Delicious Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled on this place while visiting the medical center. It's an informal cafeteria style place and was very busy during the lunch hour. We got a "4 vegetable" special and chose from a variety of delicious options. We were served more than we could finish and brought the rest back to the hotel to finish later. I'd definitely recommend.

“Great food for everyone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

Aladdin offers its customers with a wide variety of Mediterranean dishes in a cafeteria-like decor. From appetizers (variety of hummus, baba ghannouj...), salads (tabouli, pesto eggplant, mushrooms and grilled vegetables, fattoush,...), to your choice of protein (kafta kobab, grilled chicken, fish), you'll end up with a sizable plate satisfying any hungry soul. I've been twice so far and both times, everything I ate had lots of flavors and definitely tasted fresh.

The servers are nice and courteous. What I like about it is that you can take your family, get together with friends or go solo, and still have a good time. Nice atmosphere and always buzzing with people. By the way you can also order food to go. Prices are reasonable for the amount of food served. Parking can be a bit tricky.
Definitely a place I'll go to times and times again.

“Great food, even better service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

For about $12 you can have an awesome selection of fabulous fare. It is served buffet style but Luby's could never match this. The vegetable selections are all made with fresh herbs and the bright summery tastes of lemon, mint, and other green happy things. I am not even a hummus fan but found myself startled I ate of of the garlic herb hummus on my plate. I had the beef kabob and it was good but the vegetables were even better. Decor even feels like you are in a Mediterranean cafe, escaping the sun. You wouldn't go wrong with the Vegetable Extravaganza. Highly recommend.
