I like going here for some of the bands they have. The food has gone downhill over the years and service is a total joke! Usually some college kids who apparently think they're doing a good job. Seating is nice, but some chairs falling apart.

good food, one of the fewer good options in Central Massachusetts. Worth a visit. Rated it good because I've had better food recently in a large metropolis. If you don't have that option you will love it. Courteous service.

They make their own hummus - that's a reason to go right there. The food is great, the service is attentive without being intrusive. Worth the trip and best of all, they have their own parking lot which is a BIG help in this neighborhood.

The server that was assigned at our table was very, really "beige", so, so boring!!! The advertising says that live music is available. As a Saturday night, there wasn't any. The decor is cozy, the food was good. We are not gona go again.

This was a nice little restaurant located in the heart of the city, and near several schools so the area was pretty busy. There is parking in the back which was an added benefit to not have to pay a parking meter. They serve Lebanese...More

My wife and I decided to try Sahara. We had the sampler with Damascus bread. We followed that with the Swarma. Everything we ate was delicious. Our waiter was very attentive and the prices were reasonable.
