Really great experience. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful in reviewing the menu and finding the best gf options. The falafel was safe, which was pleasing, and there was a jasmine rice dish as well that was yummy. We considered dessert but the cake area setup had some concerns with cross contamination despite a couple gf dessert choices.

Menu is clearly marked with GF items as well as other allergens; they also have a menu for Keto and Paleo. Decor is fresh and they have a cute patio.

I discovered this place when I started working near brier creek. I’ve eaten lunch here with my boss every day this summer. They have allergy listings on the menu. I’ve always stuck with the Greek Chicken Salad, it’s so good! I’ve never gotten sick. I’ve gotten a couple of their smoothies before too. I highly recommend! Awesome staff too!

Impressive and informative menu for all food preferences and allergies. Food was amazing. Ordered hummus with veggies (instead of pita bread), beef shish kabobs, and Greek salad. Will definitely visit this place again.

My wife has a severe dairy allergy and I do to gluten. Since we are both this way, we just make our lives simpler and eat the same way -- GF and dairy free. Aladdin's is, by far, one of the best allergy sensitive establishments in Cincinnati. Now, I'm not Celiac, so I'm not sure if that would change my view or not, but for good food and food allergies, they're one of my favorites in the Greater Cincinnati area. Excellent food and service. Consistent. Also clean. I worked in restaurants for nearly 20 years in at all levels and I know a well run restaurant when I see one. They are well run, trained well and clean.

Aladdin’s eatery is great for people that are gluten-free I highly recommend it there are many options on the menu and they list what is gluten-free vegetarian vegan etc. right on the menu so there’s no guesswork.

Great choices and educated staff. I recommend off hours though, between 2-4 PM is best. Kitchen is small and accidents can happen during peak hours. Menu is marked, but as a Celiac, I found some errors and reported them to the manager. Food is great with a dedicated fryer.

They denote gluten-free offerings on the menu and when I ordered over the phone the lady said she would tell the staff to be careful and switch gloves and the food was delicious!! I felt safe here!

I love it. Down home middle eastern food. Don’t eat their lentil soup unless you can afford to chip your teeth on stones. Lentils are grown in stones. We found one in ours once. So many vegan and vegetarian options, as well. I really do love this place.

Many dishes are naturally gluten free and all clearly marked. Most come with pita so I order veggies instead of pita.

I have eaten at this location many times and never felt sick. A ton of the items on their menu are labeled GF. I always stress that I need them to avoid cross contamination to the waiter. They are very kind and accommodating. The only thing to watch out for is their falafel. It is GF and cooked in peanut oil, but the other menu item that is fried is not GF. But overall I have always felt safe eating there.

Great food, many gluten-free options, and according to our waitress, the kitchen crew will change their prep gloves if you warn them of your “allergies”.

Love this place. Plenty of GF, vegetarian, and vegan options available. Menu is clearly labeled and staff is very accommodating. Lots of GF options- appetizers, salads, and entrees. Love the Jasmines Favorite with beef shawarma. Their hot sauce is a great addition to any meal. Definitely recommend!

Ohio-based chain with amazing mediterranean fare. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options listed right next to every drink and dish on the standard menu. As someone who is lactose intolerant as well as gluten intolerant, and eats vegan, this place has so many safe options. I always take company here, because there’s literally something for everyone. Personally, I think the hummus and falafel are a killer combo, and I probably ate 25 Mujadara Power Salads this summer. And if it’s a date, they also have a nice foreign beer and solid red wine selection. The wait staff at the Clintonville location are very kind and accommodating. Also a great option if you’re in a hurry—they always have my non-meat to-go orders prepared within 10-15 minutes.

I always order Jasmine's favorite with the Chicken Tewook. The menus indicates both items are gluten free if you get the brown rice. It is served with a tahini yogurt, which I was also told is gluten free. The food was delicious and I trust it was GF bc I did not get sick.

Gluten free items are clearly marked on the menu, as well as items which are vegetarian, vegan, and nut free. This is a great place for vegetarians. There are many GF items on the menu. Soup comes with pita on the plate (under the bowl), so be sure to ask them to not include it. There are many dip options, such as hummus; you can order these with a veggie plate instead of pita.

This restaurant has the most delicious gluten options. They are very aware of safety precautions. The gf rice dish with veggies and beans and seasonings is fantastic and so flavorful. I will be coming back to Aladdin's during my stay here in Cleveland. I am leaving here a happy person!

Amazing Lebanese food! Many gf options. The felafel were wonderful. Lots of dairy free options too and the menu indicates what is gluten free, vegan, vegetarian and contains nuts. Most of the meat is gf but because it is served on pita it isn't listed as gf. Just ask and they will tell you what is gf.

They have some of the best baba ganoush I've ever had! The staff was wonderful and they really knew what was in the food. The menu very clearly marked which items had gluten, nuts, and were vegan. I would definitely come back here!

My daughter had no issues eating here. Although when we asked for ketchup for her chicken(she loves ketchup) they didn't have any and offered a different dip to "try". She didn't like the dip and I wouldn't have accepted it if I knew we would be charged for it! We probably won't eat here again because I feel the staff was not very friendly. When I told her my daughter had an allergy she practically rolled her eyes. ☹️

I felt irrevocably in love with tabbouleh, sfiha and kibbeh since the first bite, when I was a kid in Rio de Janeiro (where at that time there was a considerable Lebanese population). We used to eat them frequently. Imagine how excited I was to visit Aladdin at Oberlin, in Ohio! So I ordered exactly that: tabbouleh, sfiha and kibbeh and the disappointment I had is almost indescribable... The tabbouleh was swimming in lemon juice and had no olive oil; the sfiha was a pita bread (yes, I kid you not!) rolled into a triangle that was baked to a wooden consistency; and the kibbeh looked picture-perfect, but tasted nothing like the real thing. The place was dark and gloomy when we came in from the glorious sunny day outside, but I never choose/judge a restaurant for its looks! Our table was so sticky we had to ask the server to clean it; we had to deal as best we could with the sticky menus. I sat against a wall, on a bench. Suddenly these extremely loud thuds were heard and my seat shook a little bit. The thudding kept going on and on and people at nearby tables started looking in our direction. I asked the server what was going on and we were told they were cutting veggies! So, we decided to leave them to abuse the poor veggies in piece and moved to a different table. That is when the food arrived and we wished we had gone to the nearby India Garden--that although not the best Indian food, at least it is addable...
