Welcome to Sahara,

Sahara is a city venue like no other.  The once famous Sahara Restaurant from over 40 years ago has been rejuvenated, creating a fantastic 3 level dining experience, reflecting Melbourne's diverse restaurant and bar culture.  Sahara impresses a Moroccan and Northern African infused dining experience, in the heart of Melbourne.

Indulge in delicious hot or cold dishes (mezze) with cocktail or wine to match.  Follow this with a choice from our main meals either to share or enjoy all to yourself, either will please.

Overlooking the bustling dynamic Swanston Street and town Library, combining an aesthetic flair for the region and a modern and slightly multicultural twist, creates a vibrant and exotic setting.  Perfect for any occasion, be it for that special someone, group or corporate lunch, dinner or function.
