Place itself is rather small but cozy inside. Absolutely delicious meal and immediate attentive service. Kebabs are perfectly cooked. The pita is right out of the oven. Go for the combination platters, this way you can get a taste of most of the dishes. Desert...More

I made a last minute choice to pay a visit to recently opened Sahara restaurant in Manville. I brought a bottle of wine as I head that Sahara was a BYOB restaurant. A fairly busy restaurant for this visit. I found the food and service...More

Have been here multiple times both for business lunches and dinners with friends. It's BYOB! Service can be a bit scattered at times but the food is excellent. They do have a small parking lot but otherwise parking is on the street.
