Over the years we have eaten many many times from The Sahara, eat in and takeaway. The food is really excellent (the bland food review was unfortunate but must have been a one off).

Went into the Sahara after stopping by at Hemel, lovely food and corteous service, nothing much left on the plate. Decor very cosy and welcoming and staff willing to oblige to certain requests. Will be back again next time when we're visiting Hemel.

This is a regular of mine. Have been using this Indian restaurant since I discovered it a few years ago. Staff always nice and friendly and the food never lets me down. Always very busy at weekends so I would advise booking in advance to save being disappointed.
