Reviewed 30 August 2014

Nice middle eastern restaurant in downtown Manitou Springs. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. prices are modest. Not a fancy place. I'd be happy to eat here again.

“Great Twist on a Classic”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

I have eaten Gyros in Greece and the Sahara version is NOT authentic. BUT they are FABULOUS. No onions or taziki sauce in their version. But 3 kinds of meat (Lamb, beef and chicken) in the Sahara plus tahini and pickled turnips make for a mighty tasty combination.

The sandwich was huge (my 18 yr old daughter made 2 meals of hers) and came with some pitas and hummus on the side. Our only complaint is that we don't live in Manitou Springs to eat here regularly.

“Best Mediterranean Food I've Ever Had”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Most small mountain towns you are hoping to find just a good meal, but this was spectacular. Our group had Gyro's, Grape Leave's, Falafel's and Baklava. Nice atmosphere inside and the food made me want to drive back down to Manitou Springs again soon. Don't miss this hidden gem.

“Out of this World”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

We can't believe how good this is!!! We chose it since we thought we would like a more vegetarian palate since so many restaurants were just sandwiches or burgers. My husband had the lamb kebob and it was so tender; and I had the vegetarian dish. The stuffed grape leaves were fabulous and the homemade hummus...wow! Wish we could go more often !

“Absolutely Yummy”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We had lunch here after a wonderful morning at Garden of the Gods and the food here is Absolutely Yummy. We looked at all the reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to try it and WOW - so good. My friend had the Chicken Plate and I had the Sampler Plate and every mouthful was a taste sensation. The textures and flavors were all superb - with nice service and it was very cheap. It was all so good we got extra goodies to bring back to our cabin for supper.
