The Sahara is a good place for lunch. They serve a wide variety of Mid-eastern as well as Western foods. My wife chose the delicious grape leaves and falafel. I had an excellent hamburger and fries. It was not a designer burger but was closer to the old-fashioned ones from years ago. When we return I'll be hard pressed to... More

I wanted something good to eat as we were packing for our trip. I hadn't been to Sahara for awhile. They offer several options of good, Middle Eastern food. The atmosphere in-house is quite nice. I ordered their Shish Kafta with rice and salad. Very good, hot and filling.

The food is great and reasonably priced. The tables and booths have ample room and the decor adds to a quiet experience in a nice part of Maumee where lunch and dinner crowds gather.

This was a great place for Lebanese food, but somewhat hard to find. It was buried in a little shopping mall, and we just happened to see it when we passed by, so we decided to stop. We ordered the hummus, lentil soup and shish kabobs. Everything was delicious expect for the lamb kabob, which I found to be dry.... More

I must say this hidden treasure is a gem! Absolutely authentic Lebanese food, brought me back to a time when life was easier and the food was prepared at home. The server was very kind to bring as much real Syrian bread (not the store bought pita crap) to go with the tabouli, fried kibbe and the kabob combo. Definitely... More

Lovely decor, great service and the found was so good and tasty. We loved the complimentary chips and ordered hummus to go with and that was wonderful. Could have... More

This is a good choice for Mediterranean food and they offer a relatively quick lunch menu. We've eaten there many times and had everything from falafel to kibbee and never been disappointed. The lunch crowd can pack the place around 12:15, so get there early.

Well it was interesting. I was looking for a spot in my area to go to at least once a week. Major fail. Was optimistic from previous reviews but it was a sincere let down. The hummus was just like from the grocery store not sure why it was mentioned in other reviews. Nothing tasty or eventful. So disappointing I... More

We have made the mistake of driving past this restaurant for years, big mistake. The food and service is excellent. It is a small restaurant in a small strip mall on Dussell Dr. We have had a different server each time and all have been very friendly and helpful with information about menu items. The Hummus is amazing. The Lentil... More

Tucked away, this might have been the best place I have eaten in the area. The hummos was delicious. I came at lunch and service was great. I will definitely come back if I am in the area. My server was Crystal, she was knowledgeable and fast!
