We spent 3 days in Heidelberg and ate here twice! The food was so tasty and fresh. I think the grape leaves were the best I've ever tasted. (sorry mom). I ordered a chicken dish that was tender and flavorful and my husband had falafel salad with hummus etc. There is a lot to choose from so something for everyone.... More

I've been living in Heidelberg for three years and probably eat a shawarma wrap from Saharas every week it's that good. I also love the mint lemonade they serve. A great place, especially for people on a budget or for people looking to eat something on the go. It's like a very high quality döner place.

When was the last time you did something for the first time and you cherished it for a lifetime. Well, I had a similar moment when I tasted the food in this restaurant. This was the first time I tasted lebanese food and well, it went right up on my recommended list of cuisines. The restaurant is along a hip... More

Lunch stop here was tasty and substantial. The Vegetarian offerings were well priced too. A shame the service couldn't have been a little more responsive but in the end it didn't matter as we could watch the world go by.

I was a little hesitant of going here as its on the main tourist stirp and looks like an 'in and out' type of place... But! I cannot fault them at all. Fantastic staff and great food. We actually went back twice and they remembered us. Can be busy, so be prepared to wait or sit outside (Which is great... More

This restaurant is a favorite of my Lebanese friends so we stopped for a late lunch while in Heidelberg. Though it was quite crowded, we managed to score a table and were immediately attended to. The food was fresh and delivered to our table quickly - some of the best I've had in years! Great people, spectacular food, good prices.... More

Really enjoyed our meal here. The food was fresh and very good. We had falafel, hummus, etc. Atmosphere and decor are modern and inviting. Very crowded, but service was excellent. Highly recommended.

Quick, friendly service. Really fresh and tasty food. Great for vegetarians- loads of options (salad, falafel etc). They have example plates of all the dishes behind a counter so you can see what you're going to get. Definitely recommend.
