“MiddleEast Flavor in Central America”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

The Sahara Grill is located in a little strip mall along the Northern Highway in Belize City. Hidden in that nondescript location is a little taste of the middle east. The menu has a nice selection of Lebanese food. I had lamb with baba ganuche and spinach side dishes. My husband had chicken kebabs with hummus and salad. The food was beautifully seasoned and the portions were quite generous. The rice pudding we had for dessert was excellent - and I am a rice pudding fanatic. Service was prompt and friendly and we had an interesting conversation with the proprietor. We are looking forward to our next visit.

“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.
