“Incredibly Fresh and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Love this restaurant. The food is soooooo good, If atmosphere is what you are looking for, then this is probably not the place for you, but if you are looking for delicious Mediterranean food this is the place!!

“Hidden gem in Beaumont Centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

I have lived in the area for years and never gave this place a second look. Wow, what a mistake! The food and favors are amazing. I had the chicken shawarma and hummus lunch which completely satisfied me with taste and portion size. I travel to New York quite a bit, and it gives the sense of being in a big city hot spot without the big city prices.

“Sahara -Shawarma Beef and Lamb”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Had the Beef and Lamb Shawarma, was served with saladm hummus garlic sauce over a bed of rice with a pita on the side. The meat was juicy, and the rice was perfect! The best part was it was only 6.99. Will be going back.

“One of the best places to eat in Lexington”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Sahara's food is top notch. Nothing fancy about the place. You order at the counter, they give you a plastic number to put on your table and bring it out to your table when ready. The lunch special has two kinds of rice, hummus, a Greek style salad, a pita, and whichever meat you ordered. Everything I've ever had here has been great.
