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

Made the right decision to dine at sahara. Great food indeed. The menu has a wide range of persian and mediterranean dishes. We tried kebab kobideeh and pizza salami. Kebab is outsdanding and could really taste the beautiful difference of the chargrilled meat. The pizza defenitely one of the best pizzas we have eaten in Singapore so far. Period. It... 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...

We failed to plan our meal for the evening, and after 2 weeks of oriental food, we thought it might be nice to try a different cuisine. Under pressure from the kids to eat something, we made a hasty decision to eat here. Big mistake that sadly will leave a poor impression of Singapore dining. Food was of very low... More

I went to this restaurant expecting to have some "authentic" Persian food as they declared, but the food was by no means similar to Persian food. The food did not taste fresh. It was cold as if it was left over from before. We had ordered drinks but the waiter forgot to bring it even after we reminded him! Poor... More

I have been craving for a kebab koobideh and decided to visit this place because of the location. Authentic Persian cuisine was exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately only the location was not a let down... The food was terrible. Not only lukewarm but also the koobideh had nothing to do with Persian food... it was not even Turkish,... More

One of the last places in Singapore to get Shisha. Location on Boat Quay is very pleasant. Can be a bit expensive, but hey it's Singapore. Staff are friendly and the food is good. Well worth a visit

I kind of like the view by the riverside where the skyline of Singapore is right before me. Had a decent dinner and a hookah. Service was slow and that's my only complain. The charcoal was changed only once after 90min. But it was fine. I'll visit again, just no hookah, only drinks and food.

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.
