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

So far, the best I've tried. Good prices, good food and good portions. The lines can be crazy and sitting inside is veeeery difficult. Try to go in non-busy hours and would be better to do take out. The baklaba and the lamb was wonderful!

My wife and enjoyed lunch here recently, and everything was on point. I do not live in Lexington, however it had been recommended by a friend. I wish that I were closer so that I could enjoy it more frequently. The service was freindly and quick. All of the food was fresh and delicious

We went for lunch a couple of times and payed only around $14 (together) for HUGE plates of food. You can choose your meat (or protein), and then you also receive 2 kinds of rice, some pitas, hummus, and a salad. I have had the chicken shawrama and the falafel and both were exceptional. The hummus was the best I... More

My wife and I drive down from Frankfort to eat here as often as we can. Everything I've had has been amazing. The lunch plates are great. They come with two types of rice, hummus, pita, and a salad of tomatoes, cucumbers and olives. Nothing fancy about this place (nothing bad either) but the food is top notch. You order... More

If you haven't eaten at Sahara, you are missing out on some of the best food around! I'm especially crazy for their Spicy Grilled Chicken- possibly the best chicken I've ever had. The side dishes are all fantastic, too!

Sahara is one of my favorite restaurants in Lexington. Everything on the menu is delicious and made fresh. Be warned though- there is always a line!
