Seven of us had supper here after going to a matinee at The Old Market. It was super friendly and we had a cosy booth table. We tried every starter and had different mains and all enjoyed our choices. Would certainly recommend.

We went to Taste of Sahara before going to The Old Market Theatre. The good is REALLY authentic and delicious. Hummus and falafel to start and tagines for mains. Highly recommend.

The atmosphere of the place was ok and the service were nice. However, the food wasn’t as tasty as we expected. We ordered shish tawook (Lebanese chicken dish with rice), which was very dry and hard to eat. The baklava was also disappointing. Overall the...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.
