I must say this hidden treasure is a gem! Absolutely authentic Lebanese food, brought me back to a time when life was easier and the food was prepared at home. The server was very kind to bring as much real Syrian bread (not the store bought pita crap) to go with the tabouli, fried kibbe and the kabob combo. Definitely... More

Lovely decor, great service and the found was so good and tasty. We loved the complimentary chips and ordered hummus to go with and that was wonderful. Could have... More

This is a good choice for Mediterranean food and they offer a relatively quick lunch menu. We've eaten there many times and had everything from falafel to kibbee and never been disappointed. The lunch crowd can pack the place around 12:15, so get there early.

Well it was interesting. I was looking for a spot in my area to go to at least once a week. Major fail. Was optimistic from previous reviews but it was a sincere let down. The hummus was just like from the grocery store not sure why it was mentioned in other reviews. Nothing tasty or eventful. So disappointing I... More

We have made the mistake of driving past this restaurant for years, big mistake. The food and service is excellent. It is a small restaurant in a small strip mall on Dussell Dr. We have had a different server each time and all have been very friendly and helpful with information about menu items. The Hummus is amazing. The Lentil... More

Tucked away, this might have been the best place I have eaten in the area. The hummos was delicious. I came at lunch and service was great. I will definitely come back if I am in the area. My server was Crystal, she was knowledgeable and fast!

I stay at a nearby hotel about twice a month. I discovered Sahara a couple of months ago, and now it's my go to place in Maumee. I always do take-out, so can't speak of the dining room experience. The hummos is out-of-this-world good, and the portion is huge. I love the Super Falafel sandwich, too. I've also had the... More

My wife and I and friends just ate at Sahara's and were pleasantly surprised. This Mediterranean restaurant's menu offers a lot of options. The service was excellent. The food was well prepared. And the portions were large. There was also an option to order 1/2 portions. Our experience was great. We'll be back.

I live and work close to Sahara, so am a very frequent visitor. Great food and friendly service. If planning on enjoying lunch here, definitely plan on a wait (even when I call ahead a to go order I end up waiting). Love the hummus and soups.

A fabulous little place--excellent Mediteranean fare--every bit as good as the other more famous bigger Med/Restaurants around here....and in my opinion. better. Large portions for take home....and rarely crowded....So once you discover it---don't tell a soul....or we'll end up waiting in line...!
