Good food, at times more expensive then most local Cameroonian cuisine; however, the pizza and donners were excellent and it made for a nice "splurge," would come here again when we get a craving for Mediterrean and Turkish cuisine.

Excellent Lebanese food. Maybe even better than the ones in Jordan or Palestine or KSA. Excellent appetizers (cold or hot) but average mixed grill. Shisha is also good. One of my favorite in Douala. However, seating is below average.

This tasty & clean Lebanese restaurant is within walking distance of Starland Hotel. We walked there at night & the street is well lit & safe. Enjoyed cold beers & hot food - fish kebab & shwarma - with a friendly waitress. The owner also came over to say hello. The restaurant has good eat-in business & lively take-out business... More

This place was very good for pizza at late night in Douala. I remember we had some movie night with my friend and he ordered pizza from the restaurant and it was about 12 or 1 am. The pizza was quite good but I cannot comment on the other dishes in the restaurant

Alladin serves good Lebanis food. I being a vegetarian chose this for chance of getting veg and spicy food. I had to settle for Falafal and hamus. other option was the Italian portion where sphegetti where I asked them to give without the meat. Falafal were very nice. The restaurant serves almost all the dishes with Lebanese Roti(breadS).

This is not a high end place...but it is a very nice local restaurant in Bonapriso, directly across from the Dominque Savio elementary school. The decor is simple but cute--it is also very clean. It's the "nice corner restaurant" where you go when you don't want to cook or just want a nice, casual lunch. All of the dishes are... More

Very nice and clean restaurant in Bonapriso, serving excellent Lebanese cooking, but also has pizzas and hamburgers. Has about 12 tables. Primarily ex-patriate businessmen at lunch and ex-patriate couples at night. Good casual dining.
