Went for pu of lunch,we were staying in the area.Fast service and good portions-I believe the lunch is a better value vs dinner.Everything was hot,packed good and good taste.
Only neg, and it isn't on the restaurant, is that there was a family sittting at a table in front of the drink manchine,w/at least 4 kids, and they were making jacka##s of everything they did,spilling drinks,ice, then kicking the ice and of course yelling and the parents(what jokes) did nothing--glad we didn't eat in.

I average once a week dining at Sahara. The consistency of the food, the friendliest cashier in town and my order is always correct. If that's not enough...the fact that its delicious and under $9. I miss them something awful ever summer when they holiday for two months.

My wife and I have lived in Turkey and traveled all over the Mediterranean. Sahara does a great job bringing those flavors to life. Kebab, döner, babaganoush, it's all here. You can watch them cook on the vertical spit, it's fresh. When they run out of meat in a day, they run out. The owner and staff were friendly, we watched them greet regulars. This might be the best restaurants on the south side of Lexington, honestly.
Don't forget to visit the market next door!

Always great food with a great staff to boot. They have fresh salads, meat choices of Beef, Lamb, Chicken and Goat. Make sure to get the falafels and hummus. Be sure to visit their store next door for all kinds Middle Eastern specialties. You will arrive as customers and leave as family.

The food is always very fresh, you can see it roasting, and fast. The only negative thing that I can say is I always have a hard time deciding what to get since it all is fanatic, especially the Kufta-Lamb Kebobs, and the Lamb and Beef Shwarma.
