Waitress suggested the mixed grill plate and mixed dips(hummus, babaganosh, and 2 other) in-house warm pita and pita chips came with meal- everything was fantastic and the coffee wonderful- no room for dessert so took 2 baklava home- the best I’ve ever tasted. We will...be back!More

The good: place seems clean, vegs are fresh, food isn't overly greasy or salty. Free bread to start. Nothing burnt. Waitress very cheery & friendly, plus being more focused on cleaning floor during dinner than bringing bill, or receipt, gives the place a real casual...vibe. Not as impressive : wrap for $14 is small & minimalist: a few small bites of serviceable meat in it, nearly all lettuce, about a tablespoon of tomato slices & 2 or 3 small bits of pickled (the standard neon pink) turnip, all doused in something runny like an aoli. Falls apart easily. Left me kind of hungry. $5 more also got about a cup of fresh tabouleh with almost no bulgar in it, & a little plastic takeout bin of hummus-sauce: edible, but I'm guessing a watered-down hummus-flavoured commercial salad dressing. I'm not much into fast food but have to admit any pita pit = half the price for twice the food, equally healthy, way better hummus & sauces, 5-10x the fresh fillings. It's not even a contest. Maybe there are better items on the menu. They do have poutine, in case you're into Quebec cuisine.More

I brought my father to Almadina for his birthday. I couldn’t have chosen a better place to celebrate him. Katia was the absolute best, best, best server I’ve ever had (and all my closest friends are in the service industry!)!!! She celebrated my father like...she was part of our family — with the most genuine kindness and warmth. As though the hospitality wasn’t enough, the food matched the feeling. It was so fresh, flavorful, and plentiful! I’m not a big foodie, but I savoured every bite. My father said it was the best birthday meal he’d ever had. Life is so short; time with my sweet father these days are treasured. His birthday lunch at Almadina will be a cherished memory for the rest of my life.More

I have been going to this restaurant for 30 years and it's changed hands a few times. I went in about a month ago and they had a "new " person working the front and she tried to over charge me for an item that...I order once a week to go. I tried to explain it to her and she literally would not listen so I left without it. I went back the next week and told one of the other girls and she was not very polite and she put in the order. Two days ago I went back and guess who was at the front? I ordered the spinach feta triangle and she made it obvious she was not happy to see me. Began speaking Arabic to the others and they all started laughing. I got home and it was an extremely tired flattened out stale one and usually it comes with garlic sauce, this time it has humus. Mistake? I'll let you judge. It's very hit and miss with the quality of the food in general now. I had stomach issues twice after eating the food. But really it's the blatant abuse from the staff there they has ensured not only will I never step a foot in there again, I will make sure to tell everyone I know about my experience. They don't deserve to be in business treating customers this way. There are enough other choices and locations of middle Eastern food in this area. While I admit their garlic sauce is wonderful, it's not worth being bullied to get a meal. When the quality of food is such that they bring you a flattened out piece of stale food from the fridge and then customer service has boiled down to bullying, you cannot support this in any fashion. The old Al Medina had wonderful owners, so kind and gracious and the food was up to snuff. This is mediocre food now with service that should not be tolerated by anyone.More

Nice restaurant with good food. The pitas are fresh-baked and come with homemade garlic hummus - very tasty. Their pizzas are excellent, oven baked, flavourful tomatoe sauce and fresh vegetables. Little deli area where you can get pita chips or their various sauces/ hummus to...go. Great service and prices.More

Two of my friends and I met here on August 2 for lunch. The patio has nice seating and umbrellas however no greenery. We ordered the Falafel salad bowls which have to be ordered inside as they do not have servers on the patio. We...were served the food in takeout containers. The food was really good and such a nice variety. I am vegan and they were able to accommodate me to make it vegan. My one concern is that they have no recycling. All of the customers just dumped their paper and plastic into the garbage pail that's located on the patio. It wouldn't take much for them to add recycle options. I took all of my recycling packaging home just because I think it's terrible that all of this is going to the land waste. That being said we had a wonderful meal and one of the employees came out to find out how everyone was doing out there and whether there was anything she could bring us. That was a nice touch!More

We ordered 2 Chicken and 2 Beef Pita wraps, juice and 4 Baklava for pick-up. The food was ready on time and the service was good. The chicken wraps were delicious, tender and neatly presented however the beef in the beef wraps although delicious had...quite a bit of gristle in it. The Baklava was the better than the baklava we had in Israel. A1 Another amazing feature is the use of paper bags for the wraps with waxed paper surround and large paper bags for the whole order.More

Been a very satisfied regular for years because of the excellent cuisine, value and fine service! Shamina is very genial host who always makes you feel welcome and Katia provides outstanding, personalized service while dining at this fine restaurant. While I was happy to dine...on the patio and take out during this crisis, I was happy to dine in last week. The menu is vast(posted) and there are daily luncheon specials(posted). The freshly baked pita and garlic sauce are always a delicious starter. This day, I opted for a Mediterranean Salad with Twok. The salad was fresh, crisp with veggies, cheese and olives topped with a tasty dressing. The grilled chicken cubes were delicately seasoned, moist, tender and enjoyable! They are open seven days a week and are conveniently located in the Boardwalk with plenty of parking. Please patronize this wonderful middle eastern restaurant and like me you will most certainly become a regular satisfied customer! Very Highly Recommended!More

Cozy restaurant with good food. Enjoyed the Lamb kebob. Service was slow due to short-staffing. Waitress was absolutely terrific handling all the tables in this busy restaurant. No worries - we weren't in any rush. Will definitely return soon.
