Small but tasteful restaurant with a delightful menu of my middle East favorites. Each dish was delicious.

The food is delicious and the staff is friendly and helpful. You don't go here for atmospherics, but for awesome food. If you like Middle Eastern food, you'll love Sahara Mediterranean Cuisine. I highly recommend it.

It’s like discovering the world’s most perfect food… Recommend Sahara chicken and falafel. Hummus and Greek salad. Skip the rice and so many low carb choices.

One of the highlights of my annual visit to Lexington is lunch and/or dinner at Sahara. They serve Middle Eastern cuisine at its finest - simple, fresh, and delicious. I'm particularly fond of their shawarma, which has been spiced and grilled perfectly.

One of the things I like best about this place besides the great and flavorful food, is how they display the food you’re going to order. This lets you be able to see what it is before purchasing. They run out of some meat so...More

Especially the falafel. Please go for lunch and get the lunch special. Great price, large quantity of everything, and amazing taste. If you like Mediterranean, you must go here. Order, sit, and they bring to you. Always a line, but do not let that scare...More
