I visit Sahara often and always recommend them to friends that are new to Mediterranean food. The food is always fresh and the flavors incredible. I find myself comparing all other mediterranean food to Sahara's quality. It's definitely the best in Lexington, KY. Service varies between just ok and excellent. They're always packed during lunch, so if they're not the friendliest it's probably just because they're busy. But other than that they've always been pretty nice. They use local ingredients and the restaurant is clean. Not upscale at all... but it's perfect for lunch/dinner with friends or colleagues. Try the shawarma or falafel w/ garlic sauce. Expect to spend between $6-$15 for pretty big portions. ($6-8 for lunch) Great value.

The food at Sahara is always very good. We used to eat there frequently, but they have gotten more difficult to deal with over the last couple of years (we used to call in an order, pick it up, etc...now they won't take an order unless you're there in person). This is a family operation, and the family seems a bit stressed, But the food is very good--I love the hummus, and the schwarmas are fantastic.

Didn't eat at the restaurant but had a huge order for takeout with my family. Was very impressed by the lamb, chicken schwarma and rice dishes. Place closes early at 7pm and they often start to run out of food later in the day, but I can clearly see why. Highly recommended and would definitely return!
