I live locally and eat at this restaurant occasionally. I would eat there more often but they run out of food early in the evening and I usually can't get there in time to have a good selection. Then they close for most of the summer while the owners go back to Lebanon for a while. While most places wouldn't... More

Sahara serves fresh food but recently loosing the quality, its still one of the best choices in terms of quantity. It still carries the same Menu and does need some uplift

We have been to this place numerous times, with or without any special occasion. Still we devour their food every time we visit. Their Sahara Chicken, Lamb Kufta Kebab, Chicken Shawarma, Falafel along with the super delicious Garlic Sauce are undoubtedly the best in the country. These are beyond comparisons, beyond descriptions I would rather say! The Sahara Chicken is... More

I told the attendant that this was my first time here, and he promptly told me what was popular and what he liked. Even though it was 5:30pm they were already out of a couple of dishes. Get here early because this place gets crowded quickly. The restaurant is set up more as a fast food service - you place... More

Went with some friends from work based on a recommendation I received. I was not dissapointed in any way. I got the shawarma with a mix of half chicken and half beef/lamb if I'm not mistaken. The food was delicious and very affordable. I'll be back.

My husband and I had lunch here on a Saturday. We got there and it was packed but the line was moving fast. We placed our order; #46 or 47 which is a meal for two, falafel, stuffed grape leaves, hummus and a Greek salad. We found a table and our food was brought to us very quickly. My husband... More

Very small and busy place. I ate inside and it was kind of messy but once the food came to me I didn't care. It was delicious! Next time I'll probably just get it to go.
