This place is delicious :) I've been eating here everyday this past month since I started working at Texas Children's Hospital. The great part about them is that you get healthy food quickly and at an acceptable price. They also have the best Rice Pudding I have ever had!

Honestly, Ive been here for 2 yrs (in houston) and ive always been too scared to go into this place, bc i judged it from the outside. Too bad i wasted 2 yrs not eating here, bc they served some good, clean delicious food. It's reasonably priced, and just good eating. I ate some pasta which i am craving right now as i type. Salad, mashed potatoes and some delicious lamb that was very tender and succulent.
I will definitely return again.

Their traditional hummus was perfect. The lamb so tender I almost had to use a spoon. Even late into their day, they had several main & side dishes available. It was difficult to make a decision. The servers had information on all the dishes, ingredients, etc.
Located @ Montrose & Westheimer, the traffic can require some degree of patience. They also share a parking lot with the burger place next door, so during peak periods parking is a little more challenging. Still completely worth it.

Aladdin's has great tasting Mediterranean food for a low price - the lunch specials are under $10 and it is always enough food for me to take half back with me to save for dinner. My favorites are the hummus and lamb shanks. I've tried all of the Greek/Mediterranean places in this immediate area and Aladdin's is best by far. Skip the gyro at Ni ko Ni kos and come here for double the portion, double the flavor and half the price.

I am pregnant... So I am eating 4 two all the time. My husband decides to take me 4 something different one weekend and it was Aladdin. It was like the best food we had ever eaten. The Shawarma was like the Middle Eastern version of the juiciest hamburger. Everything is in your face to choose from so u don't have to read any annoying menus. The portions are very generous. Everything always looks so fresh, and tastes like it, which is the most important part. My doctor is really happy with my diet and it is all thanks to Aladdin. Love it... Seriously, i have been eating there non-stop for ever now :)

Food is overrated and service is bad. The owner has a very rude attitude like he's doing you a favor by serving you. The other day my friends and I went there for lunch. When they employee gave us more food then he was ""supposed to"" give us, the owner says to us ""look, this time I'm giving you extra food, next time I won't."" If his employee is the one serving the food, he should talk to the employee about the portion sizes they serve to customers. I don't want to be treated like I'm begging for food. That is the last time I'm ever going to the place ever again!!!!!!

Healthy bold colors revealed an extensive food display that dazzled my eyes and heightened my appetite. I was pleased to observe ample portions of food given by courteous servers. At first bite, an explosion of mouth watering flavors awakened my senses! Surprised and delighted, I relaxed to savor this delectable meal....... BRAVO!!!!!!! My daughter asked me where i wanted to go for Mother's Day, ""Aladdin's!"" I replied with a hungry smile. PS. My bet is that the Chef at Aladdin is really the Genie in the Bottle!!!!!!!!!

Awesome, that's it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And 4 u idiots out there that try to compare Aladdins to Nikos Nikos ur an idiot!
Though both restaurant owners are fat....kind of funny......that they both are.
Nikos Nikos is Greek fast food and NOT at all authentic except for the NAMES of the dishes served....and Aladdins is authentic Middle eastern food.....so please don't try to compare the two.
You want Authentic made to order Middle eastern food go to Aladdins and if you want Greek Fast Food go to Nikos Nikos.

I've eaten here a million times and they have never disappointed. Great variety of foods, all of them delicious (do NOT miss the hot, fresh pita bread!), quick service, friendly to students or dates that might want to linger a while. Parking is around back, by the way (not immediately apparent when you drive by on Westheimer).
Did I mention dinner here is CHEAP? Best deal in town.

THIS PLACE IS GREAT. THE PORTIONS ARE JUST RIGHT AND THE FOOD IS DELICIOUS. I LOVE THE FACT THE RESTAURANT LOOKS ALL SHACKY ON THE OUTSIDE BUT THEN YOU WALK IN AND IT IS HONESTLY BEAUTIFUL. THE DRAWINGS, THE CHANDELIERS, THE DOORS ARE JUST ALL VERY DISTINCT... YOU GET THAT TRUE ROYAL MEDITERRANEAN EXPERIENCE. AND LETS NOT FORGET THE PRIVATE ROOM... IT IS SO COZY AND ROMANTIC. MY FIANCE AND I TRY RESERVE IT ONCE A MONTH AND JUST ENJOY A PRIVATE, MEDITERRANEAN ROYALTY EXPERIENCE... IT IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL. ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS IGNORE THE OLD, NEGATIVE COMMENTS BECAUSE THERE NOT TRUE NOW... ITS HEALTHY.... TASTY... CLEAN... AND A ENJOYABLE ENVIROMENT. OH YEAH, THE NEW MANAGEMENT IS SOME YOUNG HYPE GUY AND HE IS HILLARIOUS... WHEN YOU BECOME A REGULAR LIKE MY FIANCE AND I, 4-5 TIMES A WEEK, HE WILL START CHATING WITH YOU AND TRULY MAKE YOU LAUGH!

The prices here are great and the food is always good. Pita bread, cauliflower,and the meat loaf are always good. I can't help but to find the review that gave a complete and detailed conversation outright hilarious. Given, the snap-snap of the neighborhood I'm not too surprised. This is a good spot to sit down, relax and enjoy food; nothing more nothing less. Like the Fadi's near the Galleria I enjoy this place.
