“Fresh and affordable food!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Right across from the Best Western Biltmore Plaza in Belize City, this small restaurant served up delicious Middle Eastern fare that was both delicious and so fresh! I had the veggie kabob which came with hummus and tabuloeh. The service was wonderful and the prices are totally affordable!

We enjoyed it so much that we wanted to go back but they were closed on Thursday. :( Next time around! Only reason I did not give it five stars because, I thought the place could have been a bit cleaner.

“Our favorite!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Food is always good, service fast and waitresses very friendly! Owners are there almost all the time which gives the place very cozy, homie feeling.
It's not luxury atmosphere, so no need to dress up. Tables fill up pretty fast at dinner time therefore you night want to call in advance to reserve your table or order to-go.
Has A/C and surveillance system that adds to your comfort and security.

“Standard Lebanese Food”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We stayed in Belize for two weeks, and we found that the Lebanese food here to be very good. The Sahara Grill was right up to par. The kabobs, vegetarian plate (try the falafel!), the shawarma, the hummus, and the hot potatoes were all very good. Ambiance was a little lacking - the place is located in a strip mall, but they do what they can with the place. The place is very similar to the Manatee Hangout, but they have everything is stock and they don't have the view of the river.

“An Amazing Find”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Only stayed in Belize City one night but we were so fortunate to have found this spot.

We had the combo kabob -more than enough for two. The lamb and beef are imported from Texas. The chicken - tender. Hummus and tabouli were also homemade and excellent.

The owner was eager to share he recipes for "garlic sauce". I only regret were couldn't return to sample more of the menu. The decor is modest but clean; clean bathroom; we arrived for an early dinner and the AC was not yet cooling down the room - quite comfortable by the time we left.

“City trip”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

Came here with a group of friends the first time and was blown away. The garlic sauce YUM. The gyro juicy. Have been back more than 3 times. Almost every time we come into the city from the airport.. Great change of food from regular beans rice and stew chicken which is yummy too.
