I have eaten at the Sahara off and on for many years. There may be a new manager or new cook because the food is now really, really exceptional. My wife and I have had three absolutely excellent meals there over the past two weeks. The grilled chicken breast plate with Greek salad and foul madamas beans is out of... More

My son and daughter suggested this place and they were on the mark! I had the chicken breast with garlic yummys on it. If your visiting here in Tally or live here try this gem you won't regret it.

That's what my daughter and I thought after dining at Sahara. The falafel were freshly cooked, just the right density, not soaked with oil, perfectly crispy on the outside and wonderfully seasoned. Best falafel ever! My lentil soup was really good and made with red lentils. I forget what my daughter had, but she raved about it. Dessert was baklava.... More

Amazing authentic Middle Eastern food. The Falafels were so fluffy and cooked to perfection. The extremely fresh, homemade hummus had delicious oils and spices that I have never had on hummus before. The meat both chicken and lamb were cooked to perfection and the rice had a lot of flavor. I wanted to take their homemade Taziki and tahini sauce... More

OK, let me start by saying I'm a tough grader. In my dozens of resto reviews, I have given fewer than 3 or 4 five-star ratings. I reserve the top rating for truly exceptional dining experiences, like the Seattle-icon fish restaurant a friend took me to. I have yet to bestow the five stars on any Tally restaurant-- if I...

Everything at Sahara is good. Sometimes they take a long time to get food out but it ALWAYS worth it.

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.
