About Sahara By the Park
Having been there for over 15 years now, Sahara By The Park is more than a quality Turkish restaurant for many Burwood locals. For some it’s more like a neighbourhood hangout, with a vibrant atmosphere and prime spot for social gatherings right by Burwood Park in the shopping centre, so it’s often used as a convenient meeting point. Most of all, though, some people find they can’t go too long now without getting their fix of Omer and Ayfer Evran’s authentic Turkish food, which cannot even be compared to the standard kebab sadly familiar around Sydney. Here on Burwood Road, Sahara By The Park gives Turkish food its just desserts (and of course some super sweet desserts for you, too) across an amazing menu of grilled meats, fresh pides, vegetarian choices (the eggplant steamboat tempts carnivores too) and the creamiest, tastiest hummus and baba ghanoush in the area.

Love, love, love Sahara By the Park. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere great and the staff are always friendly. I highly recommend the Iskender, and the mixed grill is a great meal to share between two. We have never had a bad meal here, and that, coupled with the wonderful service, is what keeps us coming back.
Great service and food was well presented and prepared. All dishes had rich fresh tastes and good variety of choices was available to suit all tastes. Excellent service and attention during the meal.
Visited Sahara and ordered the mixed grill and 3 mezze plates. The food was lovely, fresh and well presented. The service and waitresses were lovely and very attentive. Would highly recommend
Food was great and excellent service. Staff are very welcoming and good value for money. We had banquet and walked away extremely satisfied.Will go again!
Excellent food, and friendly staff. The only drawback was the online booking system which did not notify the restaurant of our booking. Fortunately the staff did not turn us away and found us a table (albeit on the street, which was noisy), they did the best the could. It was a total failure of their website booking. I would give full stars if Sahara was bookable through Dimmi.
We were disappointed eating in restaurant as have had take away prior to going to movies and is the best yuo can get. We ordered the meat platter which was cold, burnt through and tough.Busy night for mothhers day and we believe it was cooked in the main kitchen not on hot rock grill.The spinach and cheese pide was excellent hot and the spinach and cheese delicious. Platter badly chipped annd drink had to be retuurned as mixer flat andd glass chipped.Service excellent and drink exchanged.Friendly staff always.We did not complain about meat platter which we should have done as sure iit would have been rectified.
Service was good in the beginning when Restaurant was busy but unfortunately dropped off a little when it got quiet, all of a sudden we didn't get attended to anymore. I have eaten at the Restaurant many times before but this time I got a bit worried as half of the Staff members do not have any knowledge at all about GF Diet requirements. Hospitality staff should be more knowledgeable these days and make an effort to be informed. I was told Cream and Rice had Gluten, as a Coeliac I know it hasn't. Food was excellent as always!
Food and service was amazing. There is nothing to fault here. We ordered the banquet and it was great value for money. Our waitress also gave us a good idea of the amount of food we were ordering so that we did not over order.
Great food, plenty of it and good service too. Lots to choose from on the menu but any of the banquets will provide a good variety and selection. Will def be back.
The food is really authentic. It reminded my dad of the memory in Iraq thirty years ago. The pipe is a must try, and the lamb cutlet skewers is fantastic, though the eye steak was so so.
Despite being Thursday night, and busy, the staff were polite, attentive and helpful. The food was great, if a little more than we could eat, and great value for money.
We've had a wonderful and memorable time at Sahara by the Burwood park . Great services with smiles and delicious meals as well as atmosphere. It was delightful .
Lovely service & great food. Very accomodating to us Mums with two prams but not the best choice if you are breastfeeding or looking for baby friendly place but still nice nonetheless!
The restaurant don't not offer complimentary bread and we also had to ask the waiter twice for everything (like extra plates, extra sauce, etc). But it was still a good experience because the food and ambiance was great.
Food are delicious Service is excellent Friendly staff The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere Plenty of option at the menu Great value for money
The restaurany had Great atmosphere and they served great food. Service was also good. The shesh lamb was perfect. It was a great experience overall.
Good restaurant: Great food, big serves, small tables! It's good value for the money. The service is really good as well. The staff are helpful and smiling! Thanks Sahara😊
Great food but service could be more friendly. e.g. Informing what desserts are included with the banquet menu. A smile from the waitress could also trigger a higher score.
Excellent food but service a bit hit and miss. Younger wait staff not as attentive as the experienced ones. Some dishes didn't arrive until we asked about them.
Food was absolutely delicious, particularly the prawns and chargrill. Service from hostess who seated us was warm and wonderful. However waiter didn't cleared the plates from dinner for ages (1hr+?) and had to be prompted.
The restaurant was well presented, the service was good and the selection food and taste was excellent. The only issue being the seating was a little crowded.
Very good, great service from the staff. Food was excellent we will be heading in again for the experience. Easy to find parking during to week.
Food and service were excellent. We had option 2 banquet and it was a nice variety of food. Very popular restaurant. Try the apple tea
Service was slow & it want that busy. Food was great. Authentic Turkish food. Could have larger serves of rice on platter. Pleasing decor. Will go again.
There was no Efes beer! was alittle crammed.. should play more turkish music. waitress dropped a few things. food was ok but could be better
The food quality has dropped, and the customer service was very poor. The meat was not tender, and was cold which was very dis satisfying.
foods great, less space , services well, good for friends and family
