“…the hummus made me weak in the knees and the accompanying pita were soft pillows of love, the perfect combination of chewing and crispy”. - Teresita C.
…Solid 5 Stars! The food is absolutely wonderful. My co-workers and I order out about once a week and the food tastes great everytime. I highly recommend this restaurant.? - Krakernikel.
“…Solid 4 Stars! This place has awesome food”. - Monica J.
“I have taken all of my friends and colleagues and everyone LOVES this place. I mean the pita bread you eat here was just in the clay oven 3 and minutes ago. The hummus is great and baba ganoush is the best I ever tried (I’m drooling just thinking about it).” - Paul M.
Aladdin’s Restaurant is one of my favorite restaurants in San Diego. I’m in love with their chicken shawarma plate, as well as their hummus with endless amounts of warm pita bread. Coming in a close second is their sharwarma pizza and chopped chicken salad.
The ingredients are always fresh and flavorful. Many of their dishes include a great balance between your meats, veggies and starches – so I never feel guilty after stuffing my face at this place.
If you don’t have time to dine in, opt for carry out. I think you actually get more hummus when you order the to-go portion — you also get a generous portion when you order the salad to go. Try this place out next time you’re in San Diego.” – Chi I.
“I don’t know why I just discovered this place, but I am obsessed! It’s a casual place with excellent service.
The food was simply DELICIOUS. Everything was flavorful, filled with spices, and so good! I had the Spicy Prince Ali pizza and the chicken byrani. I couldn’t get enough of both dishes! The pizza had great flavor with bell peppers, mushrooms, tomatos, and chicken. My mouth is watering just writing about it! I love that their pizza names reference the characters in Aladdin.
They have a lot of vegitarian options and their lunch options look great too. They also cater. I can’t wait to go back!” – Connie C.

“Excellent” Middle Eastern eats – think “tangy” hummus, “smoky” baba ghanoush and “sinful” baklava – draw diners to this “casual” Clairemont Mesa place with a simple “strip-mall” setting; there’s often a “busy lunch rush”, but “warm, welcoming” staffers and “moderate” prices make it “worth the effort.”
