This is a great restaurant for Turkish cuisine, the restaurant is not very big but a good atmosphere and setting, it has another upstairs area with tables and traditional pillows for bigger groups and private parties. The food is really good, the meat and chicken is cooked over coal and heat beads and the shared mixed grilled meat platters are... More

The meal was amazing. We were taken upstairs as it was extremely busy and we had booked. Downstairs is very modern, and upstairs it it rather traditional with beautiful decor. It is a Turkish restaurant. We started with dips(these were traditional but whipped like cream) served with a whole warm Turkish Pide. Our main we shared a mixed grill plate... More

We received dips and bread Then bread with toppings (like pizza) Then a plate with lamb and chicken skewers Then dry sweets and turkish delight Thats not an even balanced menu We had to order salad on the side..tabouli but it didn't have dressing Not a dinner place. Asians serving without great experience didn't help the experience either

We had lunch together at Sahara. Serving was really massive. I ordered chicken Caesar salad. It was pretty good but grouton was a bit let down. Instead of being crunchy, they were hard as rock and taste like stale bread. If I come back again, I definitely will ask Caesar salad without grouton.

Great Lebanese food with dining inside or out along with a more casual cafe alongside. Delicious meals to share. Service is very good and booking a must as it is always so popular.

Being Turkish i really cant fault Turkish food but the sword has two sides to it as i have a lot of experience in Turkish food. Saharas menu is mixed with both your traditional food that you will find in a Turkish household and food that you will find in a kebab store. Ive tried most of the things on... More

Nice décor and good service from friendly staff. Most importantly the food was great. An extensive menu and as we were in a large group we shared one of the banquets. There was plenty of food, all of it delicious and left overs to take home. It was fairly busy at lunch time so make a booking particularly with a... More
