The server was extremely nice and helpful, but the food was mixed. I highly recommend the tender braised lamb shanks in a spicy, turmeric-flavored sauce, but the beef kebabs were overcooked and dry. And the Persian ice cream was awful, very grainy and lumpy (and yes, I know it is supposed to have frozen cream in it, but this was just unmixed stuff).

Went here for some interesting alternatives to all the "standard" chain restaurants around the Galleria shopping mall, and we were pleasantly surprised. Had hummus, dolmas, and tabouli as appetizers, and they were all deliciously home made. For main courses we had the rice and grilled meat dishes, one chicken the other beef. The portions were both large and very tasty. The meats had been marinated and grilled. Also had the house ice cream with saffron and rose water for dessert; a little icy but the flavor we very good again.

I am no expert on Persian food, but this was a very good choice. The waitress was accommodating and friendly.

The location is nothing special at all, just a restaurant in a trip mall.

Sahara is the whole-in-the-wall gem you are looking for. Don't even think twice - just go! They have a picture menu. Order kabobs and plan on taking 1/2 home or stuff yourself silly!
