Very good food. As has been noted in other reviews; the food here is very good. I find the tables to be placed far too close together (an effort to squeeze more people into the restaurant?). I know that this is a very busy establishment. I understand that the owners want to accommodate as many people as possible. In my... More

5 stars is just not enough. I absolutely LOVE the chicken shawarma!!! I intend, someday, to try something different but I just can't not get the chicken shawarma. By far my favorite restaurant in Lexington. Get there early and expect to wait in line. They close when they sell out of food. Always fresh and always fantastic.

Don't go here looking for anything other than a fast casual experience, there are lots of tables packed into a relatively small space. BUT ... the food is tasty, the portion is large and the price for the lunch special is reasonable.

Food is pretty good, also good prices, but the attitude of the woman at the cash register is nasty, if the food wasn't that good, I'd never come here so I wouldnt have to see her face again

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
