We were delighted with this very inviting comfortable restaurant with the owner's welcoming and generous attention. Hummus was great with fresh warm pita. I had a fresh Greek salad with added gyro, large enough for a take home extra meal and later I made gyro...More

We visit Aladdin regularly. The owner makes people feel welcome and ensures that each person has a good experience. They offer the usual variety of Mediterranean foods. All are very tasty and the portions provide enough to bring some home for a future treat.

Every dish I have tried has become an instant favorite. Chicken and lamb are the best in San Diego. My go to for lunch is the Mediterranean salad with grilled chicken. Bread is made fresh and with the hummus, there is no equal.

Food and service were really good. Our waiter (he said it's pronounced "hi thumb") gave us great suggestions. The salad had a hint of mint and was SO good. We will definitely be back!
