This small little restaurant is upstairs and seems a bit plain. Kind of made me think of "Sara plain and tall" with these attributes. The owner was very friendly and actually pretty smart. Tried Sara's with my sons and we got and shared three different pockets, all were good one was excellent. Only complaint was the prep time was a... More

Sara's pockets is in a small space above a liquor store. On face value it looks like a dive. But the food is excellent and the owner makes you feel very welcome. Worth a try if you are near Uconn. The food is Turkish Greek. They have great falafel.

Excellent homemade Mediteranian cuisine! This is not your typical processed/partially frozen food. Each order is made fresh and with care. This is not really a sit down restaurant as it is very small but food is excellent and worth the trip!

The food here is so delicious! I have honestly considered ordering more after my meal because I just did not want it to end! Be prepared for a wait as the food is made fresh to order by the owners themselves! But it is very much worth the wait! The owner is so very nice and appreciative of your business.... More

Besides the awesome falafel, the owner is the star of this restaurant. He is friendly, accommodating, and entertaining. Minimalistic decor. You order at the counter and the owner brings your food.

Best falafels and most under-rated great fries there are in the area. You wouldn't think to get fries, but when you do, they're pretty amazing and they give you a lot for the portion size. And on top of great authentic food, the owners are SUCH nice, welcoming and grateful people.

I've been coming and going to Sarah's pockets for probably five years or more. The same reliable, hot - always served fresh - and tasty food awaits my craving for good Greek food (but I have to admit he also make some of the best french fries on the planet!). If you don't know where to look for it, you... More

This restaurant is easily overlooked, but well worth the visit, as their food is homemade. Their falafel sandwich is really good. The owners are very friendly.

This is a very good local place for Mediterranean food. All the food is freshly prepared and have nice home cooked feel. It is a small unassuming location which can accommodate individuals our groups u to a dozen people at once. One of the places I could eat every day and still like it. Their falafel pocket is amazing.

Home made Mediterranean food with a smile. I've tried almost all of the food and never had a bad meal. Some complain it takes too long, but they are way too impatient, it doesn't take very long at all, maybe 5 minutes, and remember everything is made to order. Sara makes the food herself. Very accommodating to your preferences too.... More
