We went to Taste of Sahara for an evening meal. We were greeted into a friendly atmosphere and after being given a table where we were quite cramped we were moved to much nicer table without having to ask! The service was overall very attentive,...More

Exceptionally good authentic food, the lamb tagine was delicious, best I've had since Marrakech. Take your own alcohol which makes it very good value. Staff are friendly and efficient.

The food was great and the owner Sabri was very flexible as I had to book for a party of 10. The inside of the restaurant is quaint and welcoming. The veggie mezze is amazing!

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.
