One of the more striking places to eat in Prague is this café on the corner of Námestí Míru, Sahara is run by an Italian brother and sister team, who have worked hard to create their dream project. The space reflects their attention to detail, and is immediately impressive. Tall windows and calm, sandy colours draw you in off the street and once inside you’re enveloped by a wealth of exotic elements, from Buddhist statues and masks to perfect Asian seating areas and vigorous palms.
rnThe main café gives way to a seemingly endless labyrinth of similarly immaculate spaces suitable for lunches or dinners, including a quiet garden area in summertime. The dinner menu offers a vague selection of Indian tandoori and Middle Eastern dishes, alongside Italo-Mediterranean fare.
rnA wood oven heats up a number of entrées, and a meticulously selected wine collection can definitely keep up with the heat. While not perfect, the food here is above-average and is bound to improve over time. Prices for meals can get expensive, but so charming is the space and so pleasant the service that you probably won’t mind.
