4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

A family- owned and run business, patrons get personal attention and friendly service along with super delicious and quality food. Every guest can find their personal favorite. Food is prepared visible to guests. On the downside: opening times are not all convenient, food often runs out, and there is no cozy ambience. Still, worth each time.

The food is amazing, the place is clean and people are really nice. Good portions for the price. Almost every time I'm in Lexington I go and eat there.

I've eaten here at least once a week for almost a year. I'm not sure why I hadn't reviewed it, most likely because I'm so focused on the amazing food every time I go that I forget to review it. So when I logged on to give my review, I skimmed what others had wrote and get easily irritated! So,... More

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 quality Mediterranean cuisine , tasty with nice portions and friendly staff. Unfortunately they close early and shut down for a few weeks in the summer.

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.
