A good Spinach and Feta Fatayer pie is like a dreamy kiss to the mouth. It springs alive with lemon and sumac and dances with love. This kind of pie dies in a cheesy lump in the throat.

Having gone to two places, Aladdin and Al Noor Bakery to compare, I felt Aladdin pies were not as fresh and bland. I arrived at 11:30am when one would expect the meat pies to be hot, fresh and crispy. Then ended up being lukewarm, floppy and tasteless. I would no go back here and stick with Al Noor.

I absolutely love Aladdin Bakery. The meat and cheese pies are incredibly tasty and so fresh. They make everything from scratch and there is a wonderful variety of menu items. The store itself is spotless and the staff work very hard to provide a superior level of service. I highly recommend this locally owned Ottawa gem.

This is our first stop here every time we arrive in Ottawa.Hand-made, wood oven pies. Nothing comes close! The staff are friendly and patient and choices seem to be unlimited.

The food is excellent, the prices are unbeatable and the staff is friendly. This is our "go-to" stop on a busy day.

Used to come here all the time in high school for lunch and even now whenever I'm in town I stop by for a cheese pie with friends. Super delicious and the people who work there are very friendly. Great prices too. (2.50 for cheese, others can be more) Great for a quick snack or lunch on the run. Tip:... More

It's been a while since I've been to this bakery. I used to live close by and would go often. The food is fantastic and certainly hit the spot. The bakery has been renovated and the price is right. I will be bringing my kids to try it out. They love the food.

This place is a popular high-school lunch spot on weekdays, but on the weekends and evenings people seem to come from all over the City for a couple of meat or meat and cheese pies. The line moves very fast and the pies are freshest when they are busy, so don't be put off by the line. A great place... More

Aladdin is a lebanese eatery and bakery. I have been going to Aladdin for over ten years - live not too far. This is the MOST delicious, flavourful meat pie ever. You've got to try it. You will get hooked! It's the type of food you can eat on the go - for lunch, dinner or snack. Two meatpies is... More

The lebanese pastries here are worth a special trip. Bypass everything and go straight for the safiha(?). Basically a half moon dough filled with meat. You can get it spicy and with cheese too. The plain meat are $2 a pop. I think there are other kinds too, but why mess with the original. I tried these from a Lebanese... More
