At Aladdin’s Eatery, we take pleasure in serving our guests healthy and flavorful Lebanese-American foods that align with their dietary preferences and requirements. We believe in treating our guests with Lebanese hospitality by adhering to high standards for quality service and providing an elegant and sophisticated dining experience in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.
Fady Chamoun arrived in the US from Lebanon in 1972 with a dream of opening a restaurant featuring healthy Lebanese fare. In 1994 Fady and his wife Sally opened the first Aladdin’s Eatery in Lakewood, Ohio. Inspired by the belief that “food is a philosophy,” Fady made educating his guests about the restaurant’s unique cuisine his foremost passion. So Aladdin’s began with perfecting the basics like hummus, falafel, and shish kabob, and introducing new items with a focus on healthier Lebanese foods. The restaurant’s popularity took hold; soon the second Aladdin’s Eatery opened in Cleveland Heights.
Over the past two decades, Aladdin’s Eatery has grown to include almost 30 locations providing healthy Lebanese-American cuisine to guests in four states. Our menu continues to evolve in order to cater to our guests’ increasing awareness of health and nutrition.
Situated on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, on the crossroads of Europe Asia and Africa, Lebanon’s unique cultural history has shaped its cuisine. Staples of Lebanese diet include olive oil, nuts, vegetables, yogurt, and lean meats. In Lebanese cuisine, fresh ingredients are enhanced with herbs and spices rather than heavy sauces—most commonly mint, parsley, oregano, garlic, nutmeg and cinnamon. Adhering to this type of Mediterranean diet has been proven to reduce risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s, increase longevity, and many more benefits are being discovered every day.
At Aladdin’s, we are dedicated to providing natural and freshly prepared foods. Our menu is free from sulfites and preservatives and we use imported extra virgin olive oil in our homemade sauces and salad dressings. Our menu includes a wide variety of meals for every palate, with over 40 vegetarian dishes, 30 vegan dishes, 40 gluten-free dishes and 40 meat and chicken dishes (antibiotic-free).
We also offer a variety of smoothies, raw juices, natural herbal teas and a dessert cooler featuring cakes, cheesecakes, truffles and more. With all these options, there’s truly something for everyone at Aladdin’s! Sahtain!
