Manchester is home to some of the great Indian restaurants of the UK, and some of the very finest Chinese eateries too, but often left in the shadows is the city’s Arabic dining scene. It would be remiss, however, to pass up a South Manchester institution such as Aladdin Restaurant. They’ve been in position on Wilmslow Road in the heart of Withington since 1988, and have developed a strong local following that returns time and again to try their Arabian delights, from mezzes to kebabs , shawarma and more. Book a table now to try their delicacies out for yourself.
The cuisine of the Arab world is as varied and diverse as the region itself, and it can often be hard to find a restaurant that takes in the full breadth of the food. The diners of Withington, however, have no such issues. They’ve been treated to one of the best Arab restaurants in Manchester since the late 80s – 1988 to be specific – in the form of Aladdin on Wilmslow Road, where they offer up only the best in Middle Eastern cuisine, from hot and cold mezze to casseroles and stews, hot charcoal grilled meats and traditional rice pot dishes. Pay them a visit and prepare for an Arabian night that you’ll want to experience time and again: 1001 times, perhaps.
Those delicacies, then, and what you might want to taste when you pat Aladdin a visit on Wilmslow Road in the centre of Withington. The mezze are the obvious place to start. Hot options such as falafel, fatayer and sujuk sausages are joined by cold favourites such as tabbouleh, stuffed vine leaves and baba ganoush. Mains include traditional Middle Eastern meat dishes such as kofte meatballs, grilled over charcoal, shish kebabs with onions and herbs and chicken wings marinated with lemon juice and spices; for vegetarians, there are rice dishes such as artichokes with rice and traditional Arabic salad. We could go on all day about Aladdin’s cave of treat, but instead we will just advise you to book a table and make a move to Manchester’s best Middle Eastern restaurant on Wilmslow Road in Withington.
