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...More

I am a little timid when it comes to Greek food, but the server was so helpful and made great suggestions. The food was delicious and their special tea with mint and rosewater was fantastic!

I love middle eastern food -- but this is really not worth the money. It was very tasty - but so expensive!!!

We have had many family dinners here and never a bad experience. The staff is always inviting and accommodating and the food is always hot and fresh. My favorite is their baba ghanoush--some of the best I've ever had anywhere. The Greek Fries are a...More
