This is a great place for mid Eastern style food. All you can eat buffet of many different meat and vegetable dished. You definitely will not leave hungry.

It's a seat yourself, serve yourself including utensils napkins and drink. Buffet choices were not plentiful but what was there was fairly good. From outside front of restaurant it's hard to discern if they are open.

We arrived at 1:59 pm. The buffet was plenty and they were polite. My husband's favorite was the tabbouleh, cucumber yogurt, and falafel. I really liked the fatoush. If we are ever back in Charleston, WV, we would return.

I love to eat Sahara buffet. For the price it's hard to beat. All the dishes are prepared fresh daily and taste delicious. The roasted chicken, shawarma and curry chicken are my favorite dishes. I try to go here often when I'm back home.

This is a anti-Christian business, we were clearly informed upon our entrance. We were there for a party, left immediately and will not return. We were told the food was okay but not something to return for. We felt unwelcome and insecure so we left.

Good variety of Middle East Foods on a self service buffet. Owners are hosts and do a good job. Often crowded.
