Great service, great food, not expensive

This is not a fancy place, but the food is excellent, and very reasonable. The service was wonderful. I would definitely go back. Try the lamb kabobs...and save room for a piece of baklava.

Ate with a couple of friends at this restaurant. Early supper -- Waiter was courteous and answered all of our questions. I ordered the moussaka which came with two sides - in which I ordered a Greek Salad and something else that was similar to hummus - very good and had a little kick to it (I tried to find... More

Wonderful food and friendly staff. The chicken shwarma plate with greek salad and hummus with pita bread is what I recommend. Very casual. The gyros are good as are the desserts.

We love this place. The food, service, and entertainment is always exquisite. My only regret is that they're no longer located on the East side of town.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in town. Service can be a little slow at the restaurant, but it is worth the wait. I usually get the gyro and chicken shawarma plate; I highly recommend it. They also have delicious baklava and their rice that comes as a side is very good. The hummus and pita are also very... More

They actually gave me a falafel to go today that had nothing in it except lettuce, pickles and wet tasteless falafel mush balls wrapped up in a burrito tortilla. When I complained they argued with me that the cook remembers putting everything in it but if I wanted to drive back they would replace it for me. Honestly? Drive 10... More

Always great service here, and super food. No complaints. Convenient - right off the Parkway and next to Lindy's, Cabo's, and Domino's pizza. Very popular for lunch.

Had a lunch special (lamb kebabs), and the food was amazing. Lamb was tender and flavorful, humus was superb. However, it was 10.99 before tax and was a very small plate. I left hungry. I would love to come back but not sure if I would because I would probably need two plates to be honest (I'm an average size... More

My wife and I eat at Sahara regularly, and I can't imagine getting my Mediterranean fix from anywhere else. The food is authentic, and the owner will take the time to explain to you how the grape leaves (the best ones we've ever tasted) are cooked for over a full day to infuse them with the correct flavor, how the...

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.
