I lived in Dearborn for 30 years. I know good middle eastern food. This is good, not the best, but certainly good. However, it just seemed a little overpriced for the experience. Service was ok. Not great, not bad.

Authentic dishes prepared by middle eastern cooks that know what they're doing. Great Kibbe Nihee, salads, smoothies, shish anything . . . . . . You need to visit Sahara if you want authentic middle eastern food.

This is small place but the food is fantastic. Always cooked fresh and the portions are nice sized. For most a half order is enough to feed one person. They are always friendly and happy to help and serve you.
