Lovely meal. We had tickets to a show and arrived late. They were able to accommodate and serve us quickly. The waiters were friendly and knowledgeable. The food was delicious and the portions very generous. We took a lot home and it served as dinner the next night too.

Food and atmosphere were amazinging, but in an near empty restraunt it would have been nice to space people out rather than have everyone squshed into one section of the restraunt.

The whole dining experience was excellent from the time of entering to leaving. The food couldn’t have been fresher and tastier. Service was excellent in that all requests were met with timeliness. The view of the river set a relaxing scene. We were not rushed out and enjoyed the stay.

Lovely food, very friendly and helpful staff. Beware that there is a belly dancer who is very good but the music is extremely loud so no conversation while she is dancing.

Your option for noise kevel doesn't actually allow me to say it was too noisy.

I enjoy the traditional dancing, but did the volume have to be so loud you can't talk to the person next to you?

First impression was stylish and welcoming. I love the location like a hidden Gem!
The Food was delicious!! I recommend ordering the Banquet. It takes your taste buds on a complete journey through an exotic taste of Middle Eastern Cuisine!

Very Happy with the ambience, but was not happy with the Buffet, as we were not aware of the food server, I was expecting more for 2 ppl buffet, felt like we dint had the main course, It would have been better if I had chosen the items for the Dinner instead of a Buffet. 150 for 2 Buffets was not very satisfying, but ok for a dinner at nice place

Food is very nice. I ordered a cocktail which I did not like after a couple of sips. They were happy to take it away and drop it off the bill. And great customer service.

My husband and I celebrated Valentine's Day at Sahra by the river. We were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance, service and of course the food. We had the banquet for 2 and we didn't know how we could finish everything. Would recommend this place to family and friends. Thank you for making our evening a special one.

The food was great, the service excellent, but the noise was awful. I know you have little control over screaming children but they really were very poorly behaved and not controlled by parents in any way. Being seated close to a large table who were celebrating also made hearing my dining companions very difficult indeed. Thank heavens the good was a good as it was!
