“A great taste of Lebanon”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

Was introduced to this gem last night and counting the days to go back!

Great food... good price... very nice staff. A bit crowded but I guess that was the norm for the dinner rush. In such a crowded part of the city.

Had the lamb and the appetizer sampler were excellent!

Salad was fresh, meat was juicy and well done!.

Dessert was fantastic!
Got to try the cheese kunafa and the cheese sweet and the marscaponi kunafa
Excellent!!!

I highly recommend for a group of friends or couple visiting Heidelberg such as ourselves.

“Nice Lunch in a Crowded area of the city”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

This place is right in the middle of the tourist district. Lots of people around. Despite that chaos it has a nice warm feel and the food is fresh and delivered with a little flair. No problem with feeding kids since the food lends itself to assembling the right dish, and the menu has some choices for the younger (or picky).

“Fresh, fresh,fresh”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

This is a gem in Heidelberg. If you want better food buy a ticket to Beirut and eat at the owner's brother's restaurant there! Issa
( which is Jesus in Arabic) is a perfectionist. Ask to meet him and tell him Dougthelebaneseguy sent you. It is on the main tourist street
and is a lovely spot. You have to give it a try for lunch or dinner.

“A bit pricey, but great food”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Everything I've tried at Sahara has been fresh and delicious. The hummus and pita there is so yummy. I always order the shish tawouk, it is fantastic! The service is a little slow, but nice enough. For me the only downside is that it is expensive.
