The UK’s Sahara Grill Has Opened Its Doors in Dubai, and It’s Here to Stay

Via Sahara Grill


The UK-based restaurant chain Sahara Grill has opened its doors in the heart of the glamorous city of Dubai, and we couldn’t be more happy. The restaurant is known  for serving the first halal steak in England, making it historic in a way.

As you enter the place you are welcomed by a magnificent setting, a delightful marriage of antique cut stones and the luxuries of modernity. It won’t matter where you get seated because you’ll have a wonderful view of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel.


We all know that feeling when you’re being led to your seat by the waiter, only to glide by that dream table. None of that will happen there. I gazed across the room longingly at the light spot at a counter that overlooked a modern open kitchen-bar and backed onto a lively Soho street. Luckily, the food at Sahara Grill was interesting enough to distract me from such injustice.

The menu offers a wide variety of absolutely delicious starters. I, of course, had to start with the lamb chops, as I heard a lot about it and it’s considered their signature dish, accompanied by a set of impeccably-made sauces. The chops tasted like heaven marinated with a bit of devilish spice that made my taste buds celebrate.

I couldn’t help myself not to try more of their starters, so I also ordered the Mexican Fajita with rich oriental hummus on the side. They were exquisite to say the least. The main course consisted of rice with grilled salmon topped with Sahara cream, which thrilled me. It all was followed by a delicious cheesecake served for dessert.

All the products were fresh and the dishes had the warmth of home-made food with a touch of class. The chefs take great care in selecting the best quality ingredients. When I spoke to the owners, they told me that the restaurant caters for all tastes by maintaining the highest standards of quality food sourcing, finest preparation and outstanding dishes of the region, which are, surprisingly, affordable for anyone. Their main purpose was to get everyone to know what it’s like to taste a five-star dish without selling your kidneys.

Moreover, the service accompanies the high quality of the cooking. You can get a smile and a warm welcome when you enter the restaurant by a hostess and be led to your table by another friendly yet professional waiter that introduces himself and asks about your day (because we all need to know that there is someone out there who cares, haha).


Thankfully, the owners, middle-aged charming men, are always around willing to exchange some kind words with all their clients and make sure everything is intact, which is an indication that this place is not going anywhere. I highly recommend going to Sahara Grill restaurant. An experience you won’t regret or forget.
