Double check the ingredients - Edit

I'm not sure who wrote the description for this place but I was just there and had them check to make sure their pita bread was vegan, and it was not. They had no vegan bread to eat the appetizers with. They did bring out cucumber at our request, but it was only a few slices and not enough for 2 people. The falafel, however, was amazing, and the best I've ever had. I just don't want vegans to get the wrong impression by thinking they are free to eat there. Please make sure you double check the ingredients!!

Love this place - Edit

One of the best places "in the region". Adjacent to its Middle Eastern market (with awesome deals on spices) is Aladdin Pita. Yummy complimentary appetizers, great falafel sandwiches, and the lentil soup is delicious no matter what time of year you visit. It's a kid friendly location, with butcher paper on the tables, good for kid drawings or the grocery list you might have forgotten to write down.

good food and cheap prices - Edit

Friendly staff. The falafel is vegan, but the pita bread is not. Best tahini! Cheap prices.

Pros: cheap , good tahini , vegan falafel

Cons: pita is not vegan , vegan items not labeled on menu

Excellent, inexpensive, close to I-65 - Edit

We stopped here while travelling and will do so again.

As soon as we sat down, we were given four samples and some pita bread. Hummus, baba gannoug, Arabian salad and a tomato soup. The hummus was excellent, and the others were good too.

We ordered falafel sandwiches, which were under $6 apiece. They were excellent, and came with an excellent, thick lentil soup. I tried a falafel sandwich with fried cauliflower, which is now one of my favorite foods.

The staff were very nice. The walls are decorated in tasteful scenes of classic Middle Eastern architecture.

This restaurant is convenient to travellers. It's three miles off I-65 on an access road to Hwy 030 aka W. 81st Ave. aka Lincoln Highway.

Pros: Tasty food, Cheap prices, Atmosphere

Consistently Great Food - Edit

I've been coming here for years. The quality of the food is always high. Front counter staff are friendly and efficient. I appreciate that they have so many specially marked veg*n options on the menu.

When you first walk in, you'll notice that the front part of the space is a small store featuring all manner of middle eastern groceries. They sell fabulous walnut and pistacio baklava that they import from a bakery in Chicago's north suburbs. Also specialty candies from the middle east and all kinds of staples like hummos, bags of pine nuts, etc.

The area where the place could use improvement is its cleanliness. When you first open the front door, it's greasy. Gross. And not a good first impression. The little plastic seat in the waiting area seems to always have bugs lodged in the crevice. And the place sometimes smells like smoke.
