We each had a HALF order of the Sahara salad with a side of chicken shawarma and we both left with enough food for two more meals! Friendly fast service. Will return!

Picked up a carry out the other night with Beef Kabob and side salad. The kabob was nicely grilled medium rare as requested. Great flavor and the grilled onions and tomatoes add the finishing touch. The rice is phenomenal. The side Sahara salad is excellent. Sometimes I just get a full order of the Sahara salad. Simple lemon/vinegarette dressing is... More

I like Sahara. You are never rushed and the food is fresh. Lentil soup is great. Fatoush and hummus are consistently good. Oddly enough, the lamb is probably my least favorite. It always seems tough. However the gyros and chicken kafta/kabob sandwiches are good. Nice family.

I have friends who live in Muskegon who inisist on going to Sahara when they're back in St. Clair Shores because they think it has the best fatoush salad around. I agree.

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.

A small family owned restaurant with great food and service. My family and I have been going here for many years and have never been disappointed. We LOVE the fattoush salad, kibbee, hummus, chicken or lamb and mushrooms, well we love everything. The portions are large and prices are reasonable. Take my advise, go and enjoy a great meal.

This is a small family-run Lebanese eatery. A nice low-key place that is clean, with an inviting atmosphere with maybe a dozen tables and booths total. It is rarely that crowded, but busy enough to keep good business. The freshest tabbouleh. Really good, creamy hommous. Fresh lawash. Excellent Falafel. Perfect! By the way, Sahara serves up very large portions. I... More
