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.
Highly recommend. The food was delicious and the service was great. Only (minor) criticism is that they are unable to serve regular coffee/tea after 9:30pm (or 9pm) but they do still serve Turkish coffee/tea. All guests were happy with their meals. Will definitely be returning.
Really good food will definitely come back again. Happy happy
Went there with the family for Father’s Day. It was a great almosphere. Delicious food. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Would definitely recommend for large groups.
