The restaurant is very clean and has a nice atmosphere with a welcoming crew. The food is a combination of different Mediterranean countries: Turkey, Greece, Lebanon and alike. Great appetizers (especially if you are in the mood to hang out for a while). The food is always fresh and well presented. My favorite spot is the balcony accompanied by the sounds of soft international music. The Keshkul is fantastic - a middle-eastern pudding-like desert. You can bring your own wine and spend an evening with friends.

Not bad the upstairs is nice, the food doesn't have too many choices, staff isn't tooo bad, although we went with a big party and some people tend to get sick from here

Although I love Mediterranean food in all of its forms, I wasn't in the mood for your typical Falafel place. Sahara, however, was a homerun. Excellent food preparation whose hallmark was the palpable use of very fresh ingredients. Everything appears to have been made in house, and with great care and pride. Service was pleasant, but a little uneven. Perhaps my server was a little new to the profession. The atmosphere is very good. A very clean, inviting space, with a very sophisticated feel. You could comfortably dine dressed to the nines, or come very casual. Prices are just right, and the portion sizes were almost a tad too large. I was stuffed, and fully satisfied in every respect for $16.

The food was okay, but the waiter was really terrible. He asked us to leave right away after we finished the meal, even there were so many empty seats.We couldn't enjoy spending time in the restaurant after the meal, and he even asked us to pay a 20% tip.

They claim to be turkish restaurant with lots of different tukish items on the menu. Owner is a very nice egyptian guy, who goes all the way to please his customers. Great service with solid food. Salads as well as appetizers are pretty good. Kebobs are also great. Unfortunately lacking on fish and seafood.
