I had takeout from here and it was great! The food was ready quickly and was still warm (clearly just made). Accepts Obie Dollars.

Casual and tasty middle eastern fare. Yummy falafels and hummus make for the perfect light lunch. A good choice for vegetarians.

I've eaten at the one in Lakewood several times but I thought the staff in Oberlin were much friendlier and offered their favorites with reasons. The food was excellent!

I love the salads and the service. Everyone is really friendly and professional. There are sooo many great salad options. Many of them are entree portions which is great. The mint tea they offer is a nice touch. I was told this was a chain place, but I had never heard of it and thankfully it didn't have a chain... More

A fellow Oberlin alum and I had lunch at Aladdin's recently. Since our time was limited before traveling, my friend only had a raspberry smoothie and I had small orders of hummus with pita and tabouli. The smoothie and hummus were both very good, but the tabouli had way too much parsley and too little bulgur for my taste. The... More

Aladdins is an Ohio small chain; we have eaten in them in Columbus, Lakewood, Akron, and Oberlin, and enjoyed them all. Extensive Middle Eastern menu, excellent salads, wraps, appetizers. Many vegetarian options. The Oberlin location has two outside tables and indoor window tables; people-watching is great in Oberlin. Service is almost always excellent and prices very reasonable. Our favorite is... More

Dropped by Oberlin for a quick lunch and wanted something healthy but tasty. This place fit the bill. We had salads, falafels, chicken/rice platter with iced teas and a smoothie. Everything was delicious. It came to 55 dollars for the 4 of us, which was just right. The waiter was friendly and attentive and brought a bowl of water for... More

We spent 10 days in and around Oberlin in July 2016 and the majority of the meals we had were at Aladdin's. The food was flavorful and the portions were usually big enough to share. Getting one of their rolled sandwiches made for a nice easy lunch you could walk with and was extremely cost effective. If you have room... More

My 90 year old mother developed a severe cramp in her leg on Tappan Square. Just want to write a shout out of appreciation to the folks at Aladdin's Eatery for their help. When my son ran in and asked for a banana and some milk to help ease the cramp, they jumped into action without hesitation. Our graduating son... More
