Our family has been serving Lebanese food to Sydneysiders for now over forty years. A decade later and thousands of miles travelled (between the Arabic communities of North Africa, all the way to Mexico); we have spent a vast amount of time gaining the information to allow us to return and curate dishes that bring a wealth of regional textures and flavours to your table. In our search for a unique Arab influence; the region of Pueblo, Mexico has become one of which is close to our hearts, therefore inspiring our ‘Taco Arrabe’ range. Lebanese and Iraqi immigrants left their mark in Mexico, and we’re proud to showcase and deliver these unique flavours to our Sydney patrons. Never forgetting our

Opening up after the Sydney lockdown and the team at Sahra haven’t lost their touch. Great food, good portions, greater location and exceptional friendly staff. What more can you ask for. Recently caught up with friends and gave another great meal - the staff didn’t...rush us and food was served in a timely manner. Greet prices and great attentive service. Compliments to Johnny who looked after us last Wednesday evening. Will be back again soon !More

Sahra is one of my favorite Lebanese restaurants in Sydney, ive recently moved here and whenever i feel homesick this is the food that reminds me of home. Everything is so simple and the flavors are amazing. Love the Mezza, kebbe nayye and Samke harra.

Visiting Parramatta we found this lovely Lebanese restaurant. Excited that it was licensed we returned for dinner and the food, wine, service and music was authentic and perfect. Lots of families and groups enjoying themselves and yet we could still hear ourselves talk. Will return...if we are ever in the area again. Well done Sahra. From Julie and Craig. 😀More

Not sure on that one, sorry. Just having a look at the website I would say not.
