“fabulous starters”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Looks like a takeaway from the outside. Decor and presentation is stuck in the 80s, but the food makes up for it. I wish I had just had an enormous selection of starters and not bothered with the main course (nice as it was). The small starters were the highlight for me and the spicy arabic salad was SPICY! BYOB with a small corkage charge makes this a very reasonably priced meal out.

“Expected much better than was delivered.”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Went with a large group of family friends early evening and so not busy at all. Got a general feeling that standards are not important here, whether it is the decor, service or food.

My son loves middle eastern food but this, compared to others you can eat in down the road in Rusholme for half the price, was extremely poor value for money.

“Always a winner, bring a bottle.”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

I have been eating at Aladdin since it opened, some 20+ years ago. Food is excellent and authentic middle eastern, the restaurant is cosy with traditional pictures of the middle east. It's a cultural mix of people who eat here and a nice relaxed atmosphere. You can take your own wine with you as it's not served on the menu. Service is okay, not exceptional but okay. You can also easily order a takeaway too. Definitely worth a visit, If you are vegetarian there are tons of things to feast on the menu you will love.

“Delicious food, as usual”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We always eat well here, very we'll. The starters are all excellent - the salads and baba ghannoush are highlights. The prices are very low/reasonable and with the bring your own drink system you get an amazing meal for a jolly good price.

“Still the best!!!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Been coming here for many years, great middle eastern food, the restaurant has expanded over time but still retains it's original charm (middle eastern, that is!!). Staff are lovely & prices are sensible.
