I can’t believe how good the Calamari and Moussaka were. Homemade, mouth watering, flavourful and Huge portions. The service was fantastic. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend Aladdin’s restaurant.

My husband and I had the lamb souvlaki with rice spiced carrots salad and pitas. Very delicious and plentiful. It is a small but super friendly place and the best Greek/ mid eastern food I've had in years.

There is nothing but positive with regards to the food, the staff, and the atmosphere. The middle eastern food here is as good or better than I've had in London, Toronto, or New York. Massive portion sizes so be warned to show up hungry or...More
