The chicken steak with steak chips were very tasty. I only go to Sahara Grill and Meathouse for my chicken steaks, no where else does it better. Great service and will always be returning.

Used to be one of my favourite restaurants. Last visit was very disappointing. Ribeye steak was think and overcooked. Our meal was also rushed by the waiter. We were in and out within 40 mins. This restaurant is more like an overpriced fast food place these days. Won't be returning.

I arrived with my wife and was say round the back. Totally ignored by waiters who were serving others tables, that came after us. We got up and left without ordering.

I was a regular customer at Sahara grill for years but no more. On several occasions I have been back during the week and severed food that was not fresh and cold. The steak, chops and buffalo wings all tasted at least a day old severed from a previous day. The service was not so great. We gave them the... More

The food is good. The quantity is very little. Ambiance is modern looking and quite a good service as well . Parking is a bit of issue during the day but is ok for a night dinner

Ordered for collection at this joint with a few friends after researching food places in local area. Unfortunately left very disappointed. The lamb sirloin steak I ordered I must admit tasted bland and looked unappetising; extremely overpriced at £22, extremely large portion and essentially resembled a curry packed in a medium size foil container. My friend ordered a T bone... More

Service - great. We were greeted promptly and seated quickly too even though we didn't have a reservation. Better service than Whitechapel for sure. Food - steak was great, no complaints on that but a steak knife would have been helpful. Chicken - it was cold which makes me wonder if it was really grilled fresh, not going to lie... More

Ordered a chicken platter meal for £20. The food arrived quite swiftly but was very disappointed with the content of the platter. It was basically a chicken in 4 pieces with some chips! A similar meal at Nando's or roosters Piri Piri as far better with more items and better value for money. Won't be ordering the platter again. Over... More

So the chops are really yummy. Chicken is dry unless you order a heavy which is very tasty, however I wouldn't go for the stake as you can cook it at home. Meals are over priced! But the portion was very less, chops very overpriced but tastes yummy! Also the chicken steak was dry until I head asked for gravy... More

The burgers were ok, although they should know better not to reheat chips and serve to customers. The portions of chips could be a little bigger. And the waiter should be a little bit more attentive. We asked for two separate chips which was put on to the same plate as burgers, which we did not want. The chilli sauce... More
