One thing I know for surr is the vegetarian food is just terrible from here. I have officially tried all their vegetarian options on the menu unfortunately and have been regretful everytime. So bland and so dry. A friend also found 2 hairs in his...More

Great place for a casual bite to eat. I ordered the falafel and it was great!! I don't remember what my friend ordered but it looked great too! :P Lots of food for not a lot of money.

Mediterranean menu. Many vegetarian choices. Always tasty. Pot of lentil soup is always on the stove. Service is friendly. Downtown Nanaimo location. Parking on the street nearby is usually available.

A dining experience which stimulates all your senses. A tantalizing meal, served in a warm space, filled with midle eastern music. What a wonderful escape.

Go to school downtown and always looking for good, fast, tasty lunch that isn't deep fried crap. Stopped there for the domair. Wonderful! Ended up bringing my whole class;-)

If you are in Nanaimo, you have to have lunch here. It is a simple colorful cafe, excellent service, and great food. The menu caters to vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters. The food is plentiful and full of flavour. It is a fun place.

Dropped in to Aladdins for lunch after hearing very good things about it. Unfortunately, we had one hit and one definite miss. I had a beef and lamb donaire with tzatziki and it was very good but my husband's falafel was hard and burnt-tasting on...More

Personally I love this little restraint. It is very small, and definitely a small business. For me that just makes it better. It's a little local gem where a lot of locals eat at and the staff take the time to make it personal. The...More
