I am righting this review while still here, drinking my tea with the best baklava I found this side of the pond. Coming from Israel, exposed to Turkish, Syrian and Lebanese cuisine, I can tell you this IS middle eastern food. No embellishments or fancy dishes. But amazing, fresh, top quality authentic food that warms your body and soul and... More

By far the best Mediterranean food we have tasted. We ordered a 3 course meal veg and non veg. The quantity of food was unbelievable. Fortunately we were there late in the afternoon so very hungry. The food tasted great. Every dish was unique and delicious. The final course of desserts was out of this world.

Went there for dinner based on the rating on Tripadvisor. The restaurant is very noisy and the tables are small and close together. We had soup, appetizer and bread and that took up the whole table. We were seated at a table that was near the door and when people came into the restaurant we got as draft. They should... More

Just got back from eating here tonight; a dinner party of 10 adults. The restaurant was fairly crowded when we arrived - we got the LAST parking spot in the VERY SMALL attached lot. (NOTE: Parking could be a problem at this location.) When we arrived, we were immediately seated at a table for 10; not sure if it was... More

I went with a group of about twenty people and the meal was served family-style. We began with plates of high-quality olives, baskets of flatbread hot from the oven, and five or six different spreads/dips, including hummus, labhne (an outstanding version of it), and spiced ezme. This was followed by plates of salads - fattoush and shepherd's salad. Next came... More

Beautiful place with good food. What more to ask? Well, service was terrific; the menu was quite extensive without being overbearing; the choices were nicely diverse; AND the prices were friendly---I mean low!! Where in this day and age would you find soup (really good, too) priced at $3.50! My shrimp kebab was beautifully grilled, consisted of 8 jumbo prawns... More

After reading many great reviews about Sahara we finally visited before our show at the State Theatre New Jersey. We asked them to "feed us" since we'd never dined there previously and they gladly agreed. We enjoy letting the staff choose our food, they know what's going on in the kitchen and this request has never failed to provide the... More

Where do I begin? I live in Boston, my kids live in Brooklyn, and our extended family is throughout New Jersey. Last night we celebrated my daughter's engagement, graduation from graduate school, and her birthday. I can honestly say we 100% made the right choice by choosing to celebrate with 20 family members at Sahara. The food was FANTASTIC, but... More
