The new joint I've been meaning to visit
Aladdin gourmet restaurant is located right along Kiambu road. Now I must admit I was somehow misled by Google maps before I physically went to the location. It looks a bit far off but surprisingly it just took a maximum of 25 minutes from the City center to get there. It is quite spacious, ideal for those who like to travel in packs and also if you like to chill on your own. The overall look of the restaurant is impressive, with their unique personal designs and layout to merge a mixture that is both cottage and modern. Though the name Aladdin stereotypically suggests that the food might be Arabic, the menu is made up of a mixture of continental as well as signature dishes. I’d recommend the Dutch potato salad for starters and Aladdin Chicken cubes with ‘fat’ chips or their very large T-bone steak made to your specification that looks as good as it tastes and the prices are quite affordable. The waiters are always ready to take your orders and it only takes a few minutes to get your food ready and served. The ambiance is terrific and you can always use their warm lounge bar that offers a good selection of beverages and sumptuous bites.
