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.

“Great food and friendly service!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My wife and I went there with a couple of friends. The food was great, everyone was pleased with their choice. It tasted really fresh and authentic. The service was great, all the staff was very friendly and helpful. The BYOB is also a great + as the drinks usually contribute to heavy bills. We left with a bill just under £100 for 4 with 3 courses each. Great night out, will definitely go again!

“Definitely worth trying”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

We go to Brighton perhaps once a year if we are lucky, and this was our first time at the Taste of Sahara. We visited early in the evening at 5:30pm, before going to a show. Our meal was excellent. I especially enjoyed the Chicken Wings as a starter and the Rouz Dajaaj as a main. It was that good I asked for the recipe for the spice mix, but alas.... trade secrets I guess. We would hope go there again. Thanks for a lovely meal.

“The food is good and the service even better”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

Last visited in June and it remains consistently good. We were a late booking for a table on a Saturday night and somehow they managed to fit all 10 of us in at very short notice. The service was attentive and seamless and even though they were packed to the rafters, nothing was too much trouble. The food is authentic, the menu extensive and the meats beautifully grilled and tender, all wrapped in a great lively atmosphere.
