Description: A Lebanese and Persian restaurant on Brighton���s busy Western Road, Taste of Sahara gives seaside dwellers a taste of the exotic at a very reasonable price. With its d��cor created with care to reflect the atypical Middle East of story books and holiday brochures ��� all pierced tin lanterns, heavy wood and rich colours ��� Taste of Sahara has a look which reflects the diverse flavours of its immensely flavourful menu. From kebabs to tagines, all one���s Middle Eastern favourites are offered by the Sahara kitchen, along with some lesser known dishes that will tempt the more adventurous diner. In particular, the restaurant���s mezzes prove popular, the sharing concept somehow suited to this kind of cuisine, particularly when accompanied by the BYO policy.

“Do not miss”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

This really is a little gem. The food is excellent, the staff are nice and the ambience is great. It is BYOB, but there is an off license just three shops down so this is no problem. Do not miss. Highly recommended!

“Great food, large portions, friendly staff.”
Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

Went for a meal for two. All the food was amazing, and I couldn't finish my main (which is unusual for me!). Will be back the next time I'm in Brighton.

“Great venue for a big group of people”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We visited A Taste of Sahara on 25.04. with a group of 40 people as part of a department night out. It was a fantastic experience. The set up was perfect for us - we had the whole backroom to ourselves. Food was delicious and plenty off it for a very reasonable price (we even took home a few doggy bags)! The atmosphere great and the restaurant staff were outstanding and could not do enough for us. Can highly recommend it!

“Great restaurant, wonderful food and very friendly staff”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Visited the restaurant on 20th April to celebrate a birthday with some friends, found all the staff to be friendly and helpful. We had the set menu and the food was amazing, the atmosphere was great and all tables were full. The fact you can BYO is great as it cuts down on the cost and means you can drink what you like and help yourself to drinks as and when rather than waiting to be served. We will defiantly be going back for another visit.

“Brilliant Morrocan flavours in the heart of Hove!”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough, having made three visits in the last year or so. The staff are incredibly welcoming and make you feel like a regular straight away. The food is delicious (especially the trio of kebabs!) and great value for money too. One of my favourite places to take people when they visit Brighton and Hove.
