We had a rare extended family dinner with old folks and very young. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The food is very special, we enjoyed the fine preparation, subtle to sparkling flavors, and nourishing experience. I visited twice when they were in San Fran (and loved it very much) and it seems like they may have found a good home in Berkeley.
Saha is a welcome addition to the east bay dining scene; it is a small plate middle eastern themed restaurant and we have yet to have anything that we did not think was really tasty. The menu changes to reflect the seasons. For our party of six we ordered four prix fixe and it was quite enough food and we got to share 12 items...desserts were quite satisfactory too. We are glad we can walk there...
As always, the food was excellent. This restaurant offers such inventive dishes. We have never been disappointed or thought the food missed the mark. From appetizer to dessert, every bite is full of wonderful flavor combinations.
This is becoming one of our co-to restaurants. Very unique flavors, well presented. Fine complementary wines. A real gem.
Food was fresh and delicious. But service was too slow. It took forever to get the food as well as the check.
The food is mostly really excellent. It's an adult place with a nice atmosphere, lively bar, and quiet enough to talk. The lamb meatballs are fantastic; the salads very good; and other dishes creatively spiced and interesting. There are vegan and vegetarian options.
We thorougly enjoyed our first visit to Saha. Lovely environment, food and service. There were dishes to suit everyone in our party's tastes and preferences. It is well worth a visit. We'll be back--often!
Great flavors and not your typical middle eastern dishes. We will return often.
Even though I am not vegan, I was surprised by the many vegetarian and vegan offerings. The chicken liver salad was delish and so was the cauliflower. The lamb was tender and charbroiled so the flavor was very good.
I'll be back!
Indifferent service but excellent food.
The chef at Saha pays attention to every detail and clearly takes pride in his dishes. This has become a favorite date night destination and I’m always impressed.
The server was great about recommending wine to pair with each dish. All in all everything was wonderful.
One of my favorite restaurants! Food is original and fresh. There’s always a new delicious dish to try. This was my third time there, and I want to keep going back to try everything on the menu.
Fun restaurant with unusual but good food. Arabic fusion is pretty unique to me. I really enjoyed the ambiance & food.
I had eaten at Saha once before , and so I knew what to expect. This time I ordered three dishes I hadn't tasted before, which were delicious, and two white wines I hadn't tried before. The alto adige was outstanding and the French wine very pleasant. It says in three different places on the web page that a $35 prix fixe is available three days a week, but apparently it is only so on Tuesday. I like the fact that there is a lot of variety and many interesting flavors.
Wonderful, food and flavors blend exquisitely. One of the best unknown restaurants in the Bay Area. Mohammed the owner/chef is humble, kind and loves creating flavors that people can enjoy!
Service was inattentive— lots of mistakes and forgetfulness. Food was uneven. Seafood was over cooked and salad was overdressed, but lamb was well-seasoned. Certainly the menu itself promises delicious options, but the reality didn’t live up to the promise.
Big portions, nice spices. Fixed price 3 courses (select one of each category) is a bargain at $40 for vegetarian, $45 for meat/fish dishes.
Probably my favorite restaurant in Berkeley.
One of my new favorite spots. Good for a single at the bar, or with large groups. Perfect food, very succulent and fresh-tasting. Friendly staff and good service. Really a local gem, with unusual and healthy dishes.
Very nice middle eastern cuisine
The chicken liver appetizer was excellent and the kaafa dessert also terrific
The wine recommendation was also good ( white grecchiotto)
The food at Saha is uniformly excellent. The night we went the restaurant was a bit chilly, but it was compensated by the warm and attentive service.
The interesting menu, good for both vegetarians and omnivores, as well as the good reviews, brought us in. But we won’t be going back. Drinks (cocktails) are tiny and not very good, food was mediocre and pricey. Meatballs overdone and dry, curry boring. The stuffed avocado was the highlight. Service was poor (required apologies). One wrong dish delivered, which we did not bother to correct, as our server seemed so stressed. Oh well.
The flavors were outstanding. Highly recommend the Lobster Knaffe and the Duck entree. Portions felt too small for the price. Staff seemed to be visibly overwhelmed, actually lightly jogging between the tables and the kitchen. Almost witnessed to servers collide while holding wine. Cocktails didn't make it to the table until partway through the second course. First time eating at Saha, so not sure if that's standard or they were incidentally understaffed.
Excellent food. On the pricey side for a vegetarian entree. My companion loved her lamb dish. The salmon baklava appetizer with olive tapenade was very tasty!
Overall very good food.
Service was a bit slow and seemed to forget us more than once.
The service was terrible with many mistakes in the order and much time between dishes. The restaurant was very load. It was tough to have a conversation with the person sitting across from me. They were out of two appetizers and one of the main dishes at ca. 7:30 PM on a Saturday night. The prices are crazy high for what you get.
Service really lacked, prices were quite high and no price difference between the meat or vegetarian prix fix. The mushroom philosophy dough appetizer was incredible and the sauces in general were quite tasty and complex, but overall, I wouldn't go back.
Food is very, very good, even though several dishes served did not match the menu description. Service was spotty. They need to work on consistency. Wine list disappointing: a bunch of overpriced one-off vintners--few that the average wine drinker will recognize--forced us to make some educated guesses that resulted in some barely drinkable selections.
Took my husband for Valentines Day. He had the price fixe menu and I had a third and a fourth course. One cocktail and no dessert and the bill was $140. For that price you have to hit it out of the ballpark food wise. The food just wasn’t at that level for us.
We went for the prix fixe option and were not disappointed. The food was over the top fabulous with sweet salty bitter sour and umami all dancing on our tongues. A great meal and a taste journey to boot!
Food was very good, but my duck arrived at room temperature. Waitress took it back and returned it a few minutes later. It was less warm than before. she took it back again. This time it was OK but not really hot enough. I got tired of returning it. Tasted very good. My wife's branzino was very good also and it was hot.
Service was great. Waitress brought me an extra glass of wine on the house.
would definitely try again as the food was very good with unusual but harmonious flavors. I'd try several small plates and and a main course to share.
We are familiar with middle eastern and north african food, and thought that the dishes we had were "watered down" crowd pleasers. Also too oily for some, dry for others.
I LOVED Saha when it opened, for its well-spiced cuisine, excellent wine list and sophisticated ambiance. But the food and service quality has gone down in the past months. At my last visit, our table of 6 ordered the 3-course prix fixe. The octopus salad was bland and mushy and the lobster knaffi was thick and starchy, the seafood tagine was bland. Portions were copious but taste and texture left a lot to be desired. The laham sougar was still delicious, as were the scallops. The duck was too sweet for my taste. I think that the restaurant is going for value and quantity right now (perhaps the realities of a student town has caught up to them?) and sacrificing on taste and elegance.
As for the service, there were only 3 tables full, and our waiter kept forgetting utensils- we needed to ask for knives several times, it was hard to get his attention for an additional bottle of wine. It's unfortunate, since I was a real fan when the restaurant opened. I hope they get back their mojo but will take a break for now.
Yemeni/Meditarrenean cuisine at its finest; Elegant, creative, sumptuous, authentic, unpretentious - everything a dish should be. A gem in Berkeley not to be missed. Hope to see you there!
Love the food here, especially the ginger fish in coconut milk, which is not on the menu, but they will make for you.
Creative yummy food that never disappoints. Friendly service. Unpretentious. Moderately priced, although one can decrease the cost of the final bill by bringing in your own wine and paying the corkage fee.
Birthday was fabulous with unique food variations and natural flavors; not overly seasoned and portions were just right.
Delicious food. The quality and attention to detail is high. My husband and I went for the amazing mediterranean food but were happy to find out that they had classic brunch fare as well - eggs, pancakes and french toast. All delicious and served with very fresh fruit on the side. We were all really pleased with our meals.
Good food (the octopus was delicious), rich menu, great cocktails!
Fabulous food great experience. Will definitely be back
