Best Hummos ever!

I stay at a nearby hotel about twice a month. I discovered Sahara a couple of months ago, and now it's my go to place in Maumee. I always do take-out, so can't speak of the dining room experience. The hummos is out-of-this-world good, and the portion is huge. I love the Super Falafel... read more

Tucked away, this might have been the best place I have eaten in the area. The hummos was delicious. I came at lunch and service was great. I will definitely come back if I am in the area. My server was Crystal, she was knowledgeable and fast!

My wife and I and friends just ate at Sahara's and were pleasantly surprised. This Mediterranean restaurant's menu offers a lot of options. The service was excellent. The food was well prepared. And the portions were large. There was also an option to order 1/2 portions. Our experience was great. We'll be back.

I live and work close to Sahara, so am a very frequent visitor. Great food and friendly service. If planning on enjoying lunch here, definitely plan on a wait (even when I call ahead a to go order I end up waiting). Love the hummus and soups.

A fabulous little place--excellent Mediteranean fare--every bit as good as the other more famous bigger Med/Restaurants around here....and in my opinion. better. Large portions for take home....and rarely crowded....So once you discover it---don't tell a soul....or we'll end up waiting in line...!

Who would expect good Mediterranean food in Maumee, Ohio ( just outside of Toledo).? But that's what we found. Staying the night on our way back home we found this small, quiet restaurant less than a mile from our motel. Service was excellent, very friendly and accommodating. We had hummus and pita bread for an appetizer. It was so good... More

Whenever I know I'll be spending more than just a few days in one location, I try to find a local restaurant that I can call "home." As anyone who spends a great amount of time "on the road" for business will tell you, the the anonymity of daily life away from one's family and friends can be extremely dispiriting.... More

We have eaten a lot of Middle Eastern food, but this was some of the best ever. Staff was extremely friendly and hospitable. We had a great time, and loved our meals!

Well I had high hopes for this after visiting Zingo's but they were quickly squashed as there is really no comparison between the two as far as mediterranean cuisine is concerned. The greek salad was lackluster; I've had far better at the Meijer Deli. The gyro was HUGE....large portions here and that was only a half! I wonder what the... More

Dinner with friends at a restaurant we had never been before. Good atmosphere, very friendly waitresses. My favorites were the fried kibbie and the kafta. All the sauces (garlic!!) were awesome and so was the hummus. Yummie. My chicken and beef on the kabob were a little overcooked and dry. Baklava was amazing. Overall, very good food and a nice...
