We had a fine meal at Sahara, where the accent seems to be more on the Lebanese aspects of the cuisine. Friendly and knowledgeable service, flavourful and well presented dishes, a relaxing atmosphere, and fairly decent portions for the price. There isn't much more that we could have asked for. It's a pity that a number of items were off... More

This restaurant is great value for money and the food is very tasty. The gyro is very well cooked, and the tzatziki and hummus are very flavorful. We had lunch here and we found the portion sizes to be just right - filling but not too much food, and the atmosphere and service was excellent! If we lived in this... More

First do not forget dessert baklava. I have ate almost everything on the menu. Whether you are eating this food for your first time, or as me and ny entire family, you will go away full and happy you ate there. It is on the pricey side, but so worth it. This is middle eastern comfort foods.Gyro platter with feta... More

No place like this in Tallahassee. Original Chicken Schawarma wrap was amazing! You can tell they use fresh ingredients. A little hard to get to now because of the construction on Lafayette but well worth it. Lots of food for the price.

I have been here several times with Business associates. I have never had a bad meal. The service is excellent and you can't beat the price. Try it. You will like it.

I've eaten at this cafe on multiple occasions. The food is great, and the service is good, too. Get there early, however. There is no reliable closing time for this restaurant. I have been told that the hours are till 9pm Monday through Thursday and 10pm Fridays and Saturdays (the website lists hours for delivery only). In truth, the restaurant... More

We stopped by here for lunch and enjoyed the food. The service was good and the food was tasty. The place has good food at moderate prices. The mint tea with our meal really hit the spot as it was a very hot day when we stopped here to eat.

I eat here often. The kufta plate and gyro meat are extremely good. I like that the lunches are reasonably priced and come with a number of different sides. This is a lunch favorite, for sure. It's usually quiet enough for a working lunch and the service is great, too.

I read some earlier reviews that peaked my interest and decided to try this place. It was a pleasant surprise. They had many good options on their menu and most of the food coming out of the kitchen looked good. The shawarma platter was very good however I had too much skin on the pieces in my order. The Greek... More
