From kebabs to tagines, all one���s Middle Eastern favourites are offered by the Sahara kitchen, along with some lesser known dishes that will tempt the more adventurous diner. In particular, the restaurant���s mezzes prove popular, the sharing concept somehow suited to this

The sercice was excellent and the people were honestly absolutely lovely, with great conversation and jokes. I had a brilliant time even without the food, which was brilliant. The cuisine was very refreshing and the food was cooked brilliantly and perfectly. Very enjoyable meal!
