I think the people who work at Aladdin's Cafe have some confusion about veganism. For some reason, only four of the items on the menu are marked as vegan, when clearly there are more items that can be considered vegan (if prepared properly).

Unfortunately, they heat the pita bread on the same grill that's used to cook meat, so I asked my confused server to have them heat it in the microwave instead. They brought me grilled pita bread anyway and then had to remake the dish. I rarely eat here, because I don't want to deal with the hassle of trying to make sure the pita bread on my sandwich is prepared correctly when there are so many other veg-friendly places to eat in Lawrence.

As for the food itself, the genie dip appetizer is really good, and I like their falafel sandwich a lot. Both the lentil soup and saffron-spiced rice sides are decent.
