Went to this place today and had long lines... Was very excited and looking forward to it bc I had heard sooo much abt this place..food was just ok.. Average.. But good value for money. Falafel and lamb kebab was good but not worth 5 stars.. Food is average but no other place with Mediterranean food so I guess everyone... More

Love this restaurant. The food is soooooo good, If atmosphere is what you are looking for, then this is probably not the place for you, but if you are looking for delicious Mediterranean food this is the place!!

I have lived in the area for years and never gave this place a second look. Wow, what a mistake! The food and favors are amazing. I had the chicken shawarma and hummus lunch which completely satisfied me with taste and portion size. I travel to New York quite a bit, and it gives the sense of being in a... More

Great food and large portions for a good price is what you will get here! Everything is full of flavor and tastes fresh.

Had the Beef and Lamb Shawarma, was served with saladm hummus garlic sauce over a bed of rice with a pita on the side. The meat was juicy, and the rice was perfect! The best part was it was only 6.99. Will be going back.

Sahara's food is top notch. Nothing fancy about the place. You order at the counter, they give you a plastic number to put on your table and bring it out to your table when ready. The lunch special has two kinds of rice, hummus, a Greek style salad, a pita, and whichever meat you ordered. Everything I've ever had here... More

Went to lunch at Sahara and was very surprised. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. I had the Chicken Shawarma and it was great. I was also very impressed with their hummus which is really good as well. Just be sure to get there early as it gets very busy at lunch.

They're just good in what they're doing! Go in groups and have a family platter to taste it all! The place is always full, and it definitely correlates with its quality. The price is good too.

This is one of the best restaurants in Lexington. I am never disappointed with the food. I am only disappointed when I don't make it before the food is sold out

Never had Mediterranean food before. This place was close to my hotel, so I decided to give it a try. I had the chicken shawarma wrap, it was huge and only $5.00. It had a lot on it and tasted great. I see why they have so many good ratings. They seem to have a lot of regulars coming in.... More
