We came here for lunch on Sunday afternoon and were the only guests. We went to the garden at the back which is extremely neglected. The ceiling drapery needs replacement and the garden has not been tended to in a while. There was limited choice in what was available from the menu, including drinks. Terrible blaring music from torn speakers... More

We came here for what we thought would be a quick lunch after reading the good trip advisor reviews. Unfortunately we didn't notice that all the good reviews are from 2014. The place seems to have gone drastically downhill since then after a change in ownership. The service was incredibly slow. There was only one other group of customers eating... More

Do not eat here. Very slow service and mediocre food made for a very disappointing lunch. I had a pizza.

We were warned that Aladdin is under new ownership and should have listened. Been there with business groups maybe 20 times in the past, and had been satisfied. This time, however, everything that could go wrong did. It took almost 3 hours to get our food. Some plates had obviously been sitting for a long time and food was room... More

Serene atmosphere, great service, GOOD food never disappoints. I hope they can extend their closing hours, I have bounced once as I got caught up in traffic just for them to say they were closed.

Quiet ambience, polite service, horrible food (been there three times). I'd recommend the garden - serene environment.

Average restaurant out of the city. Nice place, sort of out of the way of downtown but if you find yourself near Kiambu its not a bad place for a drink. Quiet.
