A few nights ago we went to Sahara, a wonderful Mediterranean restaurant located in New Brunswick, NJ. This is one of our favorite ethnic BYOB restaurants. It is also reasonably priced for the generous amount of food that you are served. We have always received a very warm hello upon entering, and have had very friendly and efficient service. That night was no exception. It was a beautiful warm sunny evening and the entire atmosphere made you feel like you were actually dining in the Mediterranean. The long windows were open, allowing a nice gentle breeze into the restaurant and there were people dining outside.  We did choose the inside dining room however, near the windows. That way, we had the best of both worlds.

Our very warm and cordial server for the evening was Jocelyn. She was full of life, down to earth and made us feel welcome. We were able to chat with her and we felt like friends by the end of the evening. We also saw one of our other favorite servers, Fernando who used to work at another restaurant. He came up to us and gave us a very warm welcome and chatted with us as well.
We always go all the way when we go to Sahara and just balance out the next day.  This has always been our proven philosphy for weight control. Our appetizer was the hummus. Their hummus is always creamy and smooth, and topped with olive oil and paprika.  We savor every bit of this delicasy with the triangles of pita bread that they serve it with. The taste is always scrumptious!  We’ve also ordered the fried calamari with is phenomenal and served with a house tomato sauce. We also take the liberty of dipping the calamari into the hummus.  Wow!
Our regular dinner selection that we cannot bring ourselves to stray from, is the Sahara Combination Kebab for 4 people…yes, for 4 people. You must remember that we have huge appetites. This dinner comes with 4 soups. Their soup is a really delicious spicy red lentil soup, amazingly smooth and light. They are always happy to pack 2 of the soups to go for us and we enjoy two in the restaurant.
When the dinner platter is brought to the table, our eyes always light up. It is an assortment of several meats; beef, lamb and chicken in different forms. When the big platter is set onto the table, its fun to determine the order in which we are going to eat them.  We usually eat the shaved lamb first and work our way up to the chunks of meat. The taste of all of them is unreal. It is truly a challenge deciding which are our favorites.
We always choose the rice to accompany the meat platter. Long green roasted peppers are served with the rice and really add some fire and fantastic flavor to the delicately flavored rice and amazingly seasoned meats. I enjoy dipping the meats into the tahini sauce that they bring with the meal.
We highly recommend Sahara Restaurant. We have always had a great experience there and leave feeling pleasantly full. That night was exceptionally nice thanks to Jocelyn. We even brought some of the meat and rice home and enjoyed them the next day with the soup. We look forward to enjoying Sahara again real soon.
