Pleasant ambience for non arabs to taste Middle East cuisine. Very odd, the staff REFUSED to give a slice of lemon in the drinking water. Most odd, not even a mint leaf offered! Charming Tunisian waiter. Quick efficient service. I ordered lamb tagine but was...More

I recently came to the sahara with a few friends. It was highly recommended by many of people we knew. We decided to go and had a sublime meal which we'll never forget! Highly recommend anyone to go if you have the chance.

A friend recommended this restaurant for me in 2015 for my 21st birthday. I haven't turned back since. Wonderful value for money with Fine-dine-like cuisine for excellent value. The mixed kebab and rice meal goes down a treat! I think I've had everything on their...More

I think they might have dairy free options but not quite sure about gluten free.

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.
