Had a delivery that arrived much quicker than estimated. Food was piping hot and really tasty. The four main dishes were great but one or two could have had a bit more of a chilli kick. Will definitely order from here again.

I come here every week as the food is just too good and mouth watering. Every time we decide to eat out my kids always suggest Sahara. The atmosphere is astonishing and the temperature is great inside with AC. The waiters are very polite and fast
