Very disappointing! The food here is inedible and unenjoyable. Paid $52 for one main, 1 dessert and 1 drink for a dish that was cooked with no love. The meat was was tough and hard to chew and the ingredients used are cheap substitutes (for example they don't use real saffron on the rice). I have had many Persian dishes... More

I went there to have dinner with my boyfriend. He was excited about tasting persian food...big fail! We ordered hummus, sultani kebab and shandiz. Long time later the waiter came with the hummus. Worst hummus ever! Too much tahini and too much oil, accompanied whith only 4 little pieces of bread. Then we got the main courses: everything was cold.... More

We ordered the hummus, chicken kebab and lamb kebab. Food was slightly above average. The chicken was welll cooked. The lamb was a little tough for my liking. Customer service definitely needs to improve. After serving our food, the two staff did not even turned around to find out if we needed anything else, even though we were the only... More

It's very rare to find a real Mediterranean restaurant in Singapore where you can enjoy their great dishes and Sahara restaurant is the right place. I missed eating byrek with yogurt, a traditional Balkan dish and luckily i found in this restaurant. Their chef is originally from Balkan and he is expert in cooking Mediterranean and Balkan food. The environment... More

All Balkan visitors go there because the boss is from bosnia and herzegovina and he has in offer "cevapcici" and they are great. And he will probabley give you discount if you say that you are from Balkan area.

Went to this restaurant with my Persian friend who came to Singapore for a few days. Big, big, big mistake. 1. Bad service- there were only the two of us and another table with 2 women. The waiters hardly paid us any attention. 2. Bad food- falafel were cold and tasted dry and hard (and the portion is very small).... More

If you wish to have authentic high quality mediterranean food this lovely testaurant must be on your list. Fabulous food and attentive service. We were told that there had been a recent change in the menu and indeed it seemed that there were so many dishes from the mediterranean region and there was something for everyone. There were many dishes... More

They serve cold food. It's taste horrible and this place should be avoided like the plague. Save your money - avoid food poisoning.
