The food was just fair. I liked the atmosphere there, but the price for the food is a little bit too expensive. It is just not worth the price for me.

I don't like food here. Only the atmosphere and the way to decorate the restaurant are nice. So, I visited here for taking a selfie. The staffs are quite nice. The price is unreasonable for the taste.

Poor food, brutally slow service... there are other negatives but who cares. You will almost certainly regret having come here to eat. Good location and thus plenty of other better restaurants right around the corner.

I should have known this was not going to be a good experience when I saw the menu listing Thai food, burgers, smoothies, etc - and only 2 pages of Middle Eastern food. I don't go to an ostensibly 'Middle Eastern' restaurant to order a...More

One of the most interesting restaurants in the most exiting area of Chiang Mai, Sahara offers a varied range of cuisine set in a beautiful Moroccan style environment. From popular western foods to exotic middle eastern dishes to a wide variety of local Thai flavours, high quality dining at very affordable price is on offer. A second floor rooftop bar with a relaxing open air lounge features a Bedouin style tent roof. Upstairs you will also find private hookah smoking rooms serving a variety of fruit flavoured shisha tobacco. Playing the latest lounge music, this setting mixes perfectly with our large range of cocktails and imported Belgian and German beers. Our well stocked wine cellar holds a wide range of fine wines from around the world. We're open daily Sunday to Thursday 11.00 to midnight and Friday to Saturday 11.00 to 01.00 am.
