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

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.
