If I lived in Heidelberg this is where I would eat every day! The food is fresh, the staff were warm and welcoming and everything was delicious.

There's a lot of debate about which is the best falafel in town but I am on the side of Sahara. It's all about the sesame sauce

If you want a real kebab this is the place to go. Had the Sahara tellar which was amazing. The basmati rice was done well and meat was cooked just right. The service was good as well. You can order from the takeout line, but the menu when you sit down is better and worth the wait. If you are... More

This restaurant served a variation of meals from the Arabian cuisine and additionally to normal drinks a self-made tea-creation. The interior is quite modern and in some points overdone – but that’s subjective, other people might like it. The most important thing, the food, tastes good and isn’t expensive. If you want to eat a low priced Arabian-European meal and... More

This was one of my favorites while staying in Heidelberg. The wraps a great but they have other great options also. I love their hummus, I would always order extra. I would frequently stop in and I always got good quick service.

I came upon Sahara by chance and loved it. Two starters were just the right size for me. I had good labneh with flatbread and then makdeh, pretty little marinated baby eggplant stuffed with chopped walnuts. Delicious. The Lebanese custard dessert was equally delicious and the service friendly and fast. Don't miss it!
