I have eaten here many times living near the restaurant. I have never had a bad experience. The people are always friendly with the cashier at the front of the store being the most friendly. I am stunned at the negative reviews for a restaurant being out of food… I would presume that to be a good sign. This is... More

The wonderful aromas when you walk through the door! The staff was welcoming and. Informative, helpful to explain what to order. The combo chicken beef-lamb shawarma was flavorful and the hummas was fabulous along with the cucumber salad. Great taste and value. We will be back.

This place is tucked away in a little outdoor strip mall area. I went on a Wednesday for lunch and it was clearly bustling. It's small and cozy, so space can be a little limited.

Food is great with many choices. It tasted fresh and authentic. Silverware and regular plates would be a fantastic addition.

Sahara is a great place to eat!! So great they run out of certain items quickly, I have never seen them not busy so that says a lot. The prices I would say are fare for what you get and the parking can be a bit tricky but it is worth it!!

After enduring substandard Mediterranean food in Columbus, I was happy to eat authentic-tasting shawarma with generous proportions, along with nice grape leave and baklava in a perfect balance of honey, nuts and crust.

Sahara is a great find ( if staying at nearby Courtyard Hotel), The food was delicious and priced reasonable. No frills but just good wholesome food!
