Reviews for Aladdin Gourmet

Shawarma reminds me of back home. They have everything you can think of from back home. Very legit spot. Very legit restaurant! Very legit shawarma. They're so nice, but they don't need to be nice! Because they're shawarma do the talking. Whatever you order it's legit. Their prices are very low they're food is top notch. This is the best spot in the bay hands down. You can go grocery shopping and grab your shawarma at the same Dan time. They have a big Variety of thing in there, full review
Pros - Great selection of Arabic products. Cons - CHECK YOUR RECEIPT. I've been there twice in the last 4 months and both times the clerk scanned multiple items twice thinking I wouldn't notice. The first time I excused it as a mistake as he immediately apologized and fixed his mistake. After it happened the second time, it was evident that these people are trying to cheat customers. This is my experience and many others that I know have been there as well. Proceed with full review

Customer service is terrible--rude or indifferent. Spend your money next door at the nice Indian market and/or at the friendly Persian market Pirooz (on El Camino and 92, across from Safeway) instead. And yes, I know Indian, Persian, and Aladdin aren't exactly the same. But I would still rather support those businesses since this one seems to only want certain clientele--the ones they deem worthy of being called Habibi.
