About Us

Elia Zouki - Aladdins Chef

Our Story

For almost 20 years, Elia Zouki owned and operated Restaurant Al-Sultan in Laval, Que. Elia built a loyal clientele for his charcoal-grilled Lebanese foods which made Al-Sultan become a cornerstone of the local Arabic community, a place to hold wedding banquets and birthday parties or to simply go for a good family meal.

Following a visit to Calgary in 2006 Zouki was convince in one visit that he needed to move west. He says he was immediately impressed by the openness of the city and the dryness of the climate. So he sold Al-Sultan and came to Cowtown, initially running the small kitchen at Somar Mediterranean Grocery.

Zouki always had plans to open his own restaurant here and eventually settled on a space in Avenida Village at 12245 Lake Fraser Drive S.E. He renovated the restaurant, added a new charcoal grill and opens Aladdin’s Casbah (313-9599).
