I ordered food for pick up from Aladdins due to the great reviews and our love of Mediterranean and middle eastern food. While the food I picked up was excellent (tasty, great portions), it was a pretty frantic and cramped environment as I waited for the food to be ready. I was a little annoyed that I had to go...

This leads me to believe that she merely was NOT just cleaning up a "spill". Greeting patrons, serving food, handling the cash, washing floors and possibly not washing her... More

The chocolate mousse cheesecake might just be the best dessert I have EVER had. It may not be fancy, but the food is excellent... More

Cozy atmosphere with great Mediterranean food. Spinach pie and roasted chicken were fantastic. Love the big carrots and jasmine in the rice.

We had the file mignon special and the chicken souvlaki and both were melt in your mouth delicious. No skimping on the portions here, and the ingredients were top notch. Very reasonably priced. We will be definitely be eating here again on our next trip to Nanaimo. The owner even took the time to chat and ask us how everything... More

I had the falafel with a greek salad which is always amazing, my husband had the shrimp sandwich on faccacia with a salad - looked great. This is a tiny place in what can be a sketchy part of town but so... More
