We were looked after extremely well, the recommendations for our dinner choices were perfect and loved the atmosphere as well. Only disappointment was that we couldn't have shisha because the outdoor area was closed, but as that was weather related there wasn't much that could...More

Taste of Sahara has so much going for it - the food is fantastic and reasonably priced (barbecue menu is so good); it's BYO with £0 corkage (unthinkable in Brighton); the staff couldn't be friendlier and more efficient in service; and the atmosphere is really...More

The most striking thing about this place is the wonderfully welcoming and attentive staff (possibly owner). The food was also good and it was nice to see Moroccan dishes alongside the more usual Middle Eastern fare. Nothing extraordinary but pretty good.

I think they might have dairy free options but not quite sure about gluten free.

A Lebanese and Persian restaurant on Brighton���s busy Western Road, Taste of Sahara gives seaside dwellers a taste of the exotic at a very reasonable price. With its d��cor created with care to reflect the atypical Middle East of story books and holiday brochures ��� all pierced tin lanterns, heavy wood and rich colours ��� Taste of Sahara has a look which reflects the diverse flavours of its immensely flavourful menu. From kebabs to tagines, all one���s Middle Eastern favourites are offered by the Sahara kitchen, along with some lesser known dishes that will tempt the more adventurous diner. In particular, the restaurant���s mezzes prove popular, the sharing concept somehow suited to this kind of cuisine, particularly when accompanied by the BYO policy.
