I've been eating here for years and was upset to see it closed last year. It's reopened after a renovation and the repairs and fresh paint have made it an even more pleasant place to eat.. I think it's by far the best mid-east food...More

This is by far my favorite place to go in Charleston. It is buffet style and reasonably priced. The food is incredible. I can't even single out one dish as they are all great.

It's a seat yourself, serve yourself including utensils napkins and drink. Buffet choices were not plentiful but what was there was fairly good. From outside front of restaurant it's hard to discern if they are open.

We arrived at 1:59 pm. The buffet was plenty and they were polite. My husband's favorite was the tabbouleh, cucumber yogurt, and falafel. I really liked the fatoush. If we are ever back in Charleston, WV, we would return.

I love to eat Sahara buffet. For the price it's hard to beat. All the dishes are prepared fresh daily and taste delicious. The roasted chicken, shawarma and curry chicken are my favorite dishes. I try to go here often when I'm back home.
