We stopped in and ordered take away and it was awesome. The food was excellent, service was pleasant, and it was fresh and quick. We loved eating this wonderful food as we walked the Haupstrasse on a Friday Night. Enjoy.

It's a lot easier than it used to be for vegetarians in Germany but having a choice is still rare. Having visited a few other places during our holiday, we decided to try Sahara having a memory of the name from studying Tripadvisor. Choice was great: my two sons could choose pizza while my husband and I shared an Eastern... More

Great food and amazing staff/owner, you don't find people this very often!!!! I can't say enough great things about this place. They're open late and the Kabobs are so good.

We stopped by here entranced by the pictures of various wraps offered. We ordered several of them and enjoyed them a lot. The drinks and desserts were a bit pricy, but the wraps were such a good deal at less than 4 euros each that the total was still very reasonable, especially for the middle of Heidelberg. This is a...

Sahara is a must if you find yourself in Old Town Heidelberg. Not only was the food amazing, but the staff was even better. They also stay open until 3 am most nights, and have a fully stocked bar! If you ever stop by (as you should) give the owner, Imad, a hug from the Texas girls!

We stopped for a bite on a rainy afternoon. Nice atmosphere and a very good wrap if you are in for this type of food. We also tried the traditional coffee - I must say it is interesting.

If this is the first time you explore this kind of taste, it will be nice for you. The service was good, the falafel was great And it's not very expensive. The problem is that the level of the meat was not high. Also the pita bread was not warm. The reason for me to come this place was to... More

We visited Heidelberg few days ago and we had the luck to eat in this place... It was the best thing that we tasted in the city. Overall, the place was a bit small with few tables. The service was quick, polite and pleasant. The chicken was at least excellent and the potatoes really good. I would certainly propose it.... More

This is a nicer end casual place that is a great upgrade over the standard German döner joint. It's say the larger menu is mid-quality Lebanese, but is a nice departure from typical German food. Grabbing a wrap from here at lunch time will top most other quick bites on the Hauptstrasse.
