How was it?
Last Friday night I dined with D* and TestHero at Sahara in Burwood. There are two sections to the restaurant. In the first entrance there is a small walkway where people can purchase takeaway. The second entrance is the restaurant section where there are two rows of tables and chairs, lounges, mirrors and drapes. I've dined at Sahara a number of times and I've always been very satisfied with the food. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. They do have entertainment on some nights, in the form of a belly dancer, but tonight we did not see any (I was not too fussed about that).
We decided to order some homemade dips which came with garlic herb pide bread (warm and crispy = fantastic!). We also ordered a vegetable casserole and a mixed grilled meat platter. Unfortunately, there was a bit of a situation where TestHero was unsure of whether he was going to be able to make it for our feast, so we decided to cancel the casserole. Luckily, the waitress was very understanding and helpful with that.

- the food
- easy parking (in Burwood Westfields)
- missing out on our casserole (thanks TestHero)
A pleasant evening with D* and TestHero (despite his late arrival and the subsequent tension - hello, awkward. haha). The grilled meats and bread with dips are always good and a good feed in Burwood.

D* and I finished off our night by watching 17 Again and having magnums for dessert. So good ;)
