Wonderful Greek and Lebanese Food

I would go back to this restaurant many times if I could. Have tried it twice the food was excellent both times. The hummus was the best I've ever eaten including a trip to the middle east. The falafel and gyro wraps were wonderful...the stuffed grape leaves equally good. Their desserts were less... read more

I've been here many times and always enjoyed my food, but this time they had half of the menu marked out. They didn't even have moussaka! The falafel was tasteless. I was just really disappointed.

Hey Tripadvisor, the name is Sahara Greek, not Creek. I stopped through here on a road trip and grabbed a falafel wrap plus some stuffed grape leaves. The grape leaves were okay but the falafel wrap was wonderful. All the ingredients seemed fresh and the food was made to order. I had to wait less than 10 minutes but they... More

I really enjoyed my grilled chicken breast platter with salad and rice (baklava was only average)...it was very tasty but my, oh, my.....it took almost an hour to get our meal. Normally, Mediterranean/Greek restaurants are pretty fast but this was certainly not the case here. I would like to go back but my husband is reluctant because of the time... More

Enjoyed lunch there on Saturday. We are currently trying to eat low-carb and had no problem finding something on the menu to accommodate us. The food was outstanding, the service was delightful and we will definitely be back soon.

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...
