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

I've been to this restaurant a couple of months ago and I enjoyed the experience. However, last night was a disaster. My food was at least 45min late, drinks came after reminding the waiting staff twice and I didn't get to see my dessert. It was as if I went to a different restaurant. I will probably not go back...

Staying in The Quays

Neighborhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
