  • “I have been ordering from them for years, and I always get the same thing, so this review applies just to the lamb sautee. The lamb sautee is excellent! I highly recommend. They also have very good bread, and pretty reasonable delivery times. It does seem as though the portion size has gotten a bit smaller in the last year and they used to include dipping sauce for the bread which they no longer do, I guess both victims of the economy. Order the lamb sautee!”

  • “Poor communication and poor customer service. I ordered over $100 worth of food. They forgot the hummus. When I called back she quickly said ok we'll have to send it back. Great - if you've ordered hummus it's probably because you wanted to consume it with your meal. I call back an hour and a half later and she gives me an attitude telling me she can't send one hummus all that way. Thanks. $100 on food and you can send out the plate you forgot to send in the first place? Agree with previous reviewer. Would give zero stars if possible. This is Manhattan you're not the only show in town. ”

  • “By far one of the best Turkish meals I've had delivered to my place of work. They're very fast. The hummus and bread are really something else and the lamb is always fresh and juicy. Never a dull moment eating this food. My only gripe is that you have to pay extra for a side of hot and white sauce.”

  • “delivery said 20-35 mins. got here in 35. bag well packed, cold stuff on bottom so it stays cold, soda outside so it doesn't make the food cold. smart. Shepherd salad okay, didn't disappoint. bread nice and crispy and generous portion. big pepper included in the entree but not too spicy. rice was sticky and very buttery, if you like that. chicken was a little bland, but good quality, just tastes a bit bland. but thats where the pepper comes in to spice things up :)”

  • “Even thought I was that guy that ordered food 3 minutes before the restaurant closed, I was absolutely impressed and pleased with what Sahara's delivered to me. I got the dinner special. It came with a large serving of moist marinated chicken, rice pilaf and veggies. In addition to all of that, they included a delicious loaf of what I assume to be some kind of turkish bread and hummus. Both were great, especially the bread. ”
