We escaped hurricane Matthew and temporarily relocated to Tallahassee for a few days. We tried Sahara on a lark. The food is really, really good. As my father said many times, it is "morish" as you always want more!

Hadn't been here in years and had always been somewhat indifferent to the place. Food had been good in the past, but never remarkable. Probably why we hadn't visited in a few years. The menu was new and a bit more interesting than in the past and there are several things I would like to have tried. But I selected... More

Love Mediterranean food so have been wanting to eat here and just tried it last week for late Saturday dinner. Was impressed at the inside of restaurant; very cozy and tasteful décor and lighting. Someone really knows how to pick colors and styles and make it work! We started with falafel appetizer, which I've never tried. Now that was disappointing;... More

We decided to try Sahara because it is close to work. It isn't much to look at on the out side, but the parking lots was jammed. Inside is your average sit down place, but there wasn't a free table. Just then, someone left, and we grabbed the table...don't wait to be seated. The menu is everything you could hope... More

We moved from Tally but when we visit, Sahara is always on a list to frequent. The lentil soup is a must have and the Chicken Shawarma wrap can't be beat. The servers are warm and attentive.

A group of six friends met at Sahara on a Friday for lunch. All liked what they had. The grape leaf wraps my wife had were delicious, as was the Gyro I had. Service was very good. Tables were bare with small paper napkins. Sound level was rather high even tho the place was only half full. Parking was more... More

I absolutely LOVE the food here so much, but my husband and I encounter the same problem every time... I want more pita! For years we have been coming and the pita portions have dwindled each visit we have gone. Even when we ask for an extra side, I am SO willing to pay for it, we still only get... More

Been a customer for over nine years. Consistently good quality, fresh ingredients, and (with just the occasional lapse), attentive and efficient staff. I usually get the lamb shish kabobs ($16) - chunks of fresh lamb marinated and grilled on a skewer - a little lime in the marinade would make them perfect - but hey I'm not complaining - they...

A bit on the dark side with its black ceiling. A good variety of menu items with reasonable prices. The food was very delicious. The staff are friendly. We had the Sahara Grilled Chicken with Hummus and a Greek Salad ($12.99), and Chicken Shawarma with rice and Greek Salad ($12.95). The portions were plentiful.

This region's cuisine, like most, has a lot of carbs, but there are ways around that -- lots of good salads, vegetables, and meats. I sometimes win the struggle to resist the pita, rice, and baklava. The gyro meat here sure appears to be knife-sliced off the spit, not machine cut, uniform in size and shape, and frozen and thawed... More
