Very friendly staff and good knowledge of their menu. Nice to see the boss going round to chat to customers and checking on them.
Restaurant did not inform or put up notice that it was undergoing renovations. Noisy Reno works ongoing just beside the outdoor dining area while interior was a mess with the reno works. Food quality is still good though while Service staff tried his best in giving decent service.
Aubergine was nice but the lamb stew not very good. I was the only customer at lunchtime. Does not seem to be a popular eating place.
How’s this for a great story: football legend Esad Sejdic (who played for Serbia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and is famed for scoring the first hat trick for the Singapore league) is the founder of the original Sahara Bar & Restaurant at Clarke Quay. Over a decade later, the venture has since moved to Boat Quay to offer a relaxed Turkish and Mediterranean restaurant experience along the Singapore River. As a tribute to Sejdic’s heritage, there are also many Balkan specialties on the menu – and a shot of rakija comes highly recommended to wash down dishes like cevvapcici and burek. Visit Sahara Bar & Restaurant in Boat Quay and we promise you and your friends will be remembering the warm hospitality and delicious eats for a long time to come.
