After a bit of a hike to the mid levels ( or take the escalators if you're feeling laws hearty) Sahara makes for a relaxing and rewarding destination. Decor is convincing and apt and the food is great. All the usual middle eastern favourites are here and all are well cooked and presented. I've had many a lunch here and... More

Passed this restaurant in Soho many times before but had never tried it. Decided to give it a shot. Ordered the Egyptian Platter and the Lamb Tagine, which were surprisingly delicious. Good Moroccan atmosphere with friendly staff. Very good dining experience. Will definitely return to try out other dishes.

Had the meat platter for two - absolutely amazing! Also tried the truffle hummus with pita that was great as well! Shisha very well done! Service and environment in the restaurant were perfect! Must visit!

Good Lebanese meze restaurant. Very tasty bread and humus, made me very happy. And the feta cheese was really good. Also the local beer was very tasty. People who wanted could smoke water pipe inside the restaurant, so be award if you don't like smoke from water pipe. Staff is also friendly.

Having lived in Hong Kong for over 20 years and being fortunate enough to eat out regularly finding a restaurant which is customer service orientated, consistently good with fabulous food is a rarity and Sahara never fails to disappoint. Sahara is lovely for a dinner for two, as a family or good as a group but i would recommend going... More

Whether travelling through Hong Kong or reside in Hong Kong, this is a fantastic place to go for good food, good drinks, good fun, good atmosphere. Price is great and service is always excellent. Many repeat diners as the place is consistently great.

Dody & Hero (The owners) Are simply the best! I have visited their establishment many many times and I've always enjoyed having shisha there every single time.

A great place, but rather small inside, to enjoy moroccan cuisine. Very friendly staff and great assist in what to select. Even offered local moroccan wine, more fun and local than good. Might want to stick to other beverages... We had a bunch of starters and shared a number of entrees. Perfect way to enjoy the meal and the company... More

During our visit to Hong Kong, my friends and I were craving for some really good shisha. We had tried several places in the area but all their shishas were bad. At last, we found this Moroccan treasure where the shisha is prepared properly, up to the arabic standards. Their food is also very good and staff friendly. If you... More

The decor of Moroccan lamps drew me in, along with the promise of a seafood tagine. Wines by the glass are a little restricted and I think they could include some of the Middle Eastern ones for people to try as some are very good. A dish of olives arrived immediately and my choice of the "Sahara special" cocktail proved... More

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
