★ Most overrated and overpriced place I know. Their food is not worth the money you pay. They charge the price you get in a real restaurant but the food you get you get in a fast food takeaway Posted on June 5, 2015
★★★★★ I came here last weekend. Was very surprised, it looks like a classy hotel lol. we were told to take the elevator downstairs, and greeted by staff with a walkie-talkie. highly organised. i tried the lamb chops. although a pricey starter for £9.99 they were very tasty. very generous portions served here and staff checked up on us very regularly. This branch is 10 times better than the small Ilford branch. I must say, their grilled chicken was very dry and I have tasted better at other smaller franchises. I will be coming back here soon.

★★★★★ I haven't been to the original Sahara Grill as it's a bit far out from where I live, but was excited about hearing this one was open closer.
The food was spectacular. I think it's the best steak place I've been to in the UK so far. The cut was thick and it was cooked according to my order of "medium", which is a rarity at halal steak places for me (they always overcook my order). I would highly recommend ordering the lamb chops as a starter, absolutely delicious!
The environment is quite nice, it was a little dim but relaxing. I would definitely go there again and recommend it if you're looking for a steak place in the area. Service is also very speedy which is always a bonus!
My only criticism is that there aren't any mocktails. I think some virgin mojitos, etc would be quite popular at this restaurant. Posted on January 15, 2013
