Had one of my best restaurant experiences here! It was a set starter and main as it was bank holiday which I found very beneficial as I struggle with a big menu. I have to say that I was not disappointed. Perfection.

We visited for a work 'do' - there was 12 of us. Fab food, friendly staff and you can bring your own wine with no corkage charge. I have visited this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed.

Fantastic food, the flavours were varied and the menu had a good variety too! Really tasty food and the staff were more than friendly, over exceeded expectations! Definitely a little hidden gem of Brighton!

A Lebanese and Persian restaurant on Brighton���s busy Western Road, Taste of Sahara gives seaside dwellers a taste of the exotic at a very reasonable price. With its d��cor created with care to reflect the atypical Middle East of story books and holiday brochures ��� all pierced tin lanterns, heavy wood and rich colours ��� Taste of Sahara has a look which reflects the diverse flavours of its immensely flavourful menu. 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 kind of cuisine, particularly when accompanied by the BYO policy.
