Aladdin's Express

Restaurant & Hookah Lounge


About



"Best cheese steak, falafel, and gyros in town." That's the slogan for this VCU staple. Aladdin's Express Restaurant has been apart of the VCU community since 1993. This Mediterranean eatery was opened by two brothers from Syria who brought the taste of that historic part of the world to the VCU campus. Aladdin's Express has become a favorite of students and the late night crowds. Aladdin's blends the most famous dishes of the Mediterranean like pizza and gyros, with Middle Eastern flair like falafel, hummus, and kebabs. Plus the menu also has delicious subs, sandwiches, and appetizers. And for the smoker in you, a fully stacked smoke shop or relax in Richmond's premier full service hookah lounge. Enjoy...
