Sahara is a great place to eat!! So great they run out of certain items quickly, I have never seen them not busy so that says a lot. The prices I would say are fare for what you get and the parking can be a bit tricky but it is worth it!!

After enduring substandard Mediterranean food in Columbus, I was happy to eat authentic-tasting shawarma with generous proportions, along with nice grape leave and baklava in a perfect balance of honey, nuts and crust.

Sahara is a great find ( if staying at nearby Courtyard Hotel), The food was delicious and priced reasonable. No frills but just good wholesome food!

Sahara is in a busy center that has some shopping and a lot of businesses. It's a favorite for employees of several of the surrounding businesses. I work nearby and have gone a couple times now for lunch. I usually get the lunch special, as I can choose from a few different main dishes, and it is inexpensive - especially... More

Best Mediterranean eatery in Lexington! Food is always fresh and full of flavor, with large portions. The only item they could improve on is the pita bread.

If you like goat chops or lamb chops, you must visit Sahara. They are spectacular! And, the meal was around $15. I ordered the lamb chops and my husband ordered the goat chops. We ordered knowing we would share the chops. I was hoping three lamb chops and three goat chops would come with the plate, but I was expecting... More

We went during lunchtime and when we saw that the line was out the door we almost left. But, boy am I glad we stayed. The line moved very fast and was worth a few minutes wait. We got the $7.95 lunch special and it was delicious. The lunch special came with a salad, hummus and your choice of a... More

Sahara does an awesome job in serving up great food! My favorite is chicken shawarma - it comes with a side & I always get hummus. Of course their meals come with huge pieces of flat bread. On our last visit for a weekday dinner, they were fresh out of all their shawarmas, so I opted for chicken breast over... More

If you love great mediterranean food than Sahara is for you. Their lunch plates give you a great sampling of different things, all fresh and delicious. I am a big fan of the lamb and beef shawarma personally and my wife usually goes for the falafel with chicken shawarma. My mouth is watering just recounting our last visit. This place... More
