“A Very Good Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We stopped by here entranced by the pictures of various wraps offered. We ordered several of them and enjoyed them a lot. The drinks and desserts were a bit pricy, but the wraps were such a good deal at less than 4 euros each that the total was still very reasonable, especially for the middle of Heidelberg. This is a very good place to eat here.

“A Must in Heidelberg!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Sahara is a must if you find yourself in Old Town Heidelberg. Not only was the food amazing, but the staff was even better. They also stay open until 3 am most nights, and have a fully stocked bar! If you ever stop by (as you should) give the owner, Imad, a hug from the Texas girls!

“Good shaorma on main street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We stopped for a bite on a rainy afternoon. Nice atmosphere and a very good wrap if you are in for this type of food. We also tried the traditional coffee - I must say it is interesting.

“Average Mediterranean food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

If this is the first time you explore this kind of taste, it will be nice for you.
The service was good, the falafel was great
And it's not very expensive.
The problem is that the level of the meat was not high.
Also the pita bread was not warm.
The reason for me to come this place was to eat shawarma, and in that they failed...

“The best in Heidelberg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

We visited Heidelberg few days ago and we had the luck to eat in this place... It was the best thing that we tasted in the city. Overall, the place was a bit small with few tables. The service was quick, polite and pleasant. The chicken was at least excellent and the potatoes really good. I would certainly propose it. One drawback is the small and certainly old looking bathroom.
