Our Story

Ed and Violette immigrated to America from Syria in the 1970s. They opened Aladdin in 1981 on 2nd Street in Allentown with the simple idea of serving fresh authentic middle eastern food that they had in their hometown village Amar. The first 18 years of Aladdin were on 2nd Street. Ed, Violette and their family lived on the second floor of the building and ran the restaurant below.

In 1999, they expanded and bought the current location here on Union Boulevard. Although Ed passed away in 2000, Violette and her daughters continue to run Aladdin today. Aladdin Restaurant is proudly family owned and operated for over 30 years and counting. Thank you for being part of our family!
