This is my favorite restaurant hands down. I moved to the Montrose area last year and this place is where I have been having dinner since then. I am not a practical person but once I tried Aladdin's food I couldn't get enough of it... They have extremely affordable prices and their portions are great. I have a very fast metabolism so I get hungry a few hours after dinner, thanks to their portions I always have a doggy bag to satisfy me when I am at home. The restaurant has a very cozy feeling and really interesting Middle Eastern music playing in the background, if only I could learn how to dance to it. Anyways, the food is spread out on this line that u can choose from, they have a menu on the wall but I stopped looking at it because I like to eat their specials of the day. Oh my god, the sandwiches are to die 4, all of them. They have this thing called a Falafel sandwich and my best friend who is a Vegetarian can't get enough of it, plus they have all these salads that complement each individual dish. I am not gonna lie, they have a lot of cuties working there, especially this one guy with a French accent (or at least I think it is). But seriously, if u don"t want to pay a lot but want a wholesome, healthy meal then u gotta try this place. Oh yeah, they have fresh squeezed juices, I always get the mango and strawberry mixed together, they don't even charge me extra for it. And, don't forget to take advantage of the freshly baked bread. I always take an extra or two and make breakfast with them by just adding some eggs and cheese, they taste like those really good Thanksgiving biscuits, just flatter and bigger. I love Aladdin's... and French guys :)

This resturant is alot of fun . It is nestled in the heart of the famous "Columbia FIve Points" which sets the mood for this resturant. It is upbeat, fun, and really good. I have eaten the Chicken and Grits, the Shrimp and Grits, and the chicken fingers. Everything was great. The beer even tasted great, very cold. The decor inside appears a bit warn down, but you couldn't expect anything less from a place in this same location. There are chairs and tables outside so that people may "people watch" while scarfing down some delicious all time favorites. Occasionally there will be Trivia at this resturant, this makes the resturant even more appealing in my opinion.
Exceptionally good restaurant I work near Elie's and have been eating there at lunch for several years now. The Shish Taouk (chicken kabob) is a favorite of mine and is fantastic. The chicken is always very tender, the sauce has great flavor and the rice and salad are outstanding as well. When I have tried other items such as the lamb kabob, they have been great too. Nansi who runs the business is a dear, sweet woman who treats all of her customers very well. I can't recommend this restaurant more highly.
