Aladdin's is one of my favorite spots on Franklin street not only for lunch and dinner, but also for a late night out. The food that they serve is light mediterranean food which is healthy and very tasty. The lunch buffet is only $8, and it is well worth the price. They also have great baklava. At night, you can sit and enjoy the hookah with some friends on the Arabic-style cushions. The only downsides to the place at night are that they have starting charging cover and that there are a lot of kids in the 18-21 year old range and its really crowded. Also, the beers are a little over-priced. But the cool thing is, they have belly-dancers some nights, and there are lots of people out on the floor dancing, whether they know how or not. It doesn't matter though, it's all in good fun!
