Start off your meal at Aladdin Cafe San Diego with one of our delectable appetizers. We make our hummus (a cravable bean dip) in-house at Aladdin restaurant San Diego with fresh garlic, Garbanzo beans, high-quality olive oil and tahini. Add succulent chicken or lamb shawarma with your order. Of course, the dish wouldn’t be complete without our perfect pita bread. Our guests love this soft Mediterranean bread, describing it as “soft pillows of love, the perfect combination of chewy and crispy.” (Teresita C.)

They are wrapped in soft grape leaves for a unique and subtle flavor. You’ll love our fresh and crispy falafel. They are scrumptious dipped in a side of labneh, a fresh and light kefir cream cheese dish. Follow up your appetizer with a light and exotic passion fruit and shrimp salad, topped with crisp carrots and peppers, juicy tomatoes and olives and feta cheese.

One of the most popular main dishes at Aladdin Restaurant San Diego is the succulent lamb biryani. We marinate the freshest lamb and prepare it with a secret spice mixture.

We also offer fresh and delicious sandwiches at Aladdin San Diego. Choose from lamb, koufta or kebab. You can also make your meal vegetarian by substituting tabouli or falafel for meat.
