Great food. Knowledgeable staff. many gf options.
AMAZING place! I am a very sensitive celiac, and I am very apprehensive about eating out. The waitress was very knowledgeable about celiac, able to answer all of my questions, put me at ease about contamination risks, and provide me with fantastic recommendations. I can't tell you how delicious this food was! I usually stay away from salads when eating out, as they are normally one of the most easily contaminated dishes, but my shwarma salad was out of this world. Fresh, delicious, healthy...it was fantastic. My husband loved his meal, too, and he's not one to go bonkers over food like this. We ate a really delicious meal, enjoyed a glass of wine, and left extremely satisfied. Best of all: no bellyache, afterwards (I'm very sensitive, I would've known if I had ingested gluten) This place made it happen! The GF cheesecake was so tempting, but I managed to overdo it with the shwarma, so I chose to forgo it (I'm still regretting that decision) All-in-all, a FANTASTIC choice. I plan to visit EVERY time I am in town. It certainly puts a positive spin on a doctors appointment.
Hit or miss! The falafel is gluten free and made in a dedicated fryer. Got take out today and it was disappointing when I asked them to be respectful of my gluten-free status and the order comes with pita bread. Really this place claims they honor allergens that's not a great example.
amazing food and clearly written menu. had no problems finding what was gf
Tonight was my first time at Aladdin's, we just stopped for dessert with a friend, they had 2 amazing types of gluten free cake, some of the best I've ever had, we will be stopping back to try the food next time! Had a great experience with dessert I gave it 4 stars just because I haven't had a "dinner experience" yet!
This place sounded great from the reviews on the Internet, but finding vermicelli noodles in my rice, and the manager's unapologetic attitude about it, was a huge disappointment. But, weirdly, I have not reacted at all to this meal, even though I am super-sensitive to gluten, so I have to wonder if it was rice vermicelli that I found. In more detail: The menu is awesome, with lots of items that are marked gluten-free. The food options are middle Eastern -- Baba Ganouj, hummus, stuffed grape leaves, etc. I told the waitress about my family's food sensitivities, and ordered rice that she thought would be safe for me to eat. The rice was good, and my hummus and baba ganouj were excellent. But about 2/3 of the way through my rice, I found a vermicelli noodle. I stopped eating the rice right away, and told the waitress. Usually in the past when a restaurant has made a mistake, they have sent out several people to apologize, and majorly lowered our bill. But I had to ask to have the price of the rice taken off the bill. On the way out, the manager asked how our meal was. I told him about getting glutened, and that I'm usually sick for four weeks afterward. Instead of sympathy, he seemed annoyed, and said that the menu says that the rice is mixed with vermicelli noodles, so I guess he felt it was my fault that I had ordered that. Sigh. They had some gluten free cookies at the cash register, near a gorgeous display of gluten-containing cakes. My daughter looked through all the cookies for one she wanted to try. But they were all flavors like orange and lemon, while she wanted chocolate, so she didn't buy one. Overall, a big disappointment. I wouldn't go back. I am still baffled about why I didn't react to the noodles in the rice.
Great Lebanese food!
Amazing food!! The menu is marked by every selection whether it's gluten free, vegan, both, etc! Some of the staff are very knowledgable. Unfortunately, I had an awful experience with a waitress last night. She buried my hot sauce under the pita I asked her not to bring when I mention the gluten issue. Then gave attitude when I reminded her and asked for a new one. Seeing that I got extremely ill last night, I know she brought out the same side of hot sauce. The wait staff should really be trained consistently and be made aware of the health consequences of the customers!
Aladdins eatery has just recently changed their menus to indicate which items are gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, or contain nuts. Certain appetizers do usually come with pita on the side, but, they don't count the pita when determining when a dish is GF or not. In addition, their menu also lists out all the ingredients that go into each dish, which is nice.
Good food, but be careful!!! They have things labeled vegan that are made with animal products and the falafel are labeled gluten free, but the are fried in a shared frier. I told the waitress all of this and she just shrugged it off like it was no big deal. I have friends that are vegans and they would be very upset to know that the smoothies are made with cows milk!!!
