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.

Love this place! Great Kabob's, their meats and fish are very fresh and grilled to order. Love their sahara said with shredded Feta and the hummus, very good! I stay away from bread unless I'm at this restaurant, baked on premise and served hot and fresh! And the liver (which I never order or eat often) is amazingly delicious!

I just love this place! I have been at Sahara's as a take out meal and sit in. We are always seated quickly, (lots of room) My Favorites are the shepherds salad with cheese, grilled lamb chops and grilled Liver. Oh and the bread as you dip it in the shepherds salad is must do! The food is served quickly.... More

Went there for lunch. Very nice setting. Fast Service. Salad, kebob with rice and coffee - also from a drip machine, that was unexpected, - everything was very good. Recommend.

I've been ordering food from here for years when I lived in Brooklyn. I came with my husband for a late lunch and the service was fast and food was as delicious as usual. I wish they would open one in Long Island.

Description
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
