One of the best places to eat in Brighton. The food is prompt and delicious. The service is amazing and I'm treated like a family member rather than a customer. It's become a staple place for date night. Phone ahead and book because this place...More

I didn't try their chocolate cake, that is if they make a chocolate cake, but if it were as good as their kebabs I reckon it would be better than the cake served by a certain American in his Florida resort! But first the starters:...More

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.
