Have a friend who raves about the place. Place is huge. Really needs updating and repairs. Service was not good. I specifically asked for something to be brought with our meal and was brought before. The waiter didn't hear an item we ordered, and basically no return to ask if we wanted coffee or dessert. The food... General consensus was... More

Shepherds salad with feta cheese is always so fresh and delicious. Homemade fresh and warm bread. Gyro platter is the best!

This south Brooklyn Turkish restaurant is an institution, but one that is slipping in quality. Our kebabs were served warm, and quickly became cold. The mildly spicy long green peppers were not served with kebabs, as is standard issue the in any Turkish kebab house. Our server failed to mention this fact. It is also odd that this place lacked...

Been there for dinner with many friends. We had different and various dishes, some were very good and some so-so. The staff and service very friendly, but in general the restaurant was noisy, mainly for large groups and families.

n the summer, this sprawling Turkish restaurant offers a lovely garden in the rear where you can dine like the luckiest of desert dwellers, under trellises thick with grapevines, surrounded by squash and cucumber plants.But for urban nomads slogging through a New York summer, Sahara offers something even more useful: a thriving takeout business.Those who have lived with intense heat/cold know best that the way to eat is to eliminate complications. Simple food simply prepared is the secret, and at this Sahara excels. A shepherd's salad is no more than cubed tomatoes and
