Something Different

Was looking for a bite to eat after the movies and cam across Sahara and found it pleasant. Wasn't shore what to order and they were helpful and what they came up with was great. Good meal good price and worth it for a quick bite. Parking is a problem need to go into Westfields.

We went there with Turkish friends in their recommendation. The food was great and very authentic. Having spent time in Turkey it was just as you would get there. The place was full which is a sign of how good it is, but that can make it a little noisy. It's a BYO which is hard to find on their... More

I thought the food served was excellent - the grill had beef, chicken and minced lamb and the flavours were great; along with the minimal charred-black from the grill and the meat was sooo tender. The sauces/sides were also good, small but sufficient for the meat served. The capsicum was not as good as I've had as it was a... More

Made an account on TripAdvisor just to write this review. We were seated with no cutlery or napkins, we had to wait twenty minutes to order and had to wave a waiter down to do so. Our drinks never came (IT WAS JUST WATER). Waiter deliberately checked on every table around us but continued to ignore us. Terrible terrible service.... More

For me, if the food is good, I really do not mind the service because I am sure everyone can understand that restaurant can get busy and it's a hard job at the end of the day. However, combine average food and stupid service, that's a disaster in my book

This is one of my favourite places to take friends for lunch. The chef is a master of grilling meats to perfection. The meats are marinated to enhance the flavours, then perfectly grilled while still retaining their moisture. Add to this fresh, soft pita bread, tangy dips, salads and rice, and you have a great meal at an excellent price.... More

Went there at 9pm on a Saturday night, wasn't busy because of the time. Young girl greeted us at the door and quickly found us a table and gave us menus then disappeared. We sat for 15 mins trying to get someone's attention but staff were either talking or washing up. The table next to us were doing the same... More

My mum and I had lunch here and were blown away. We had the lunch share plate which was unbelievable. We finish with the most amazing baklava I have ever tasted and the apple tea and Turkish coffee were delicious. The staff are very friendly and the decor is very nice

Visited tonight based on last time I walked past, the restaurant was completely full then. The menu choices were great. I asked the waitress for the most popular meal. She asked how hungry I was. She then suggested the Karisik Izgara. It had three meats, awesome flavoured yoghurt, pita bread and small plate of salad. To say the least, this... More
