Toast To Your Health

San Francisco is a food lover’s paradise. From trendy new dining concepts to mouthwatering ethnic staples, incredible restaurants are everywhere you turn in a city that gracefully accommodates allergies and dietary restrictions.

In Arabic, “saha” means “toast to your health”, and Saha, located on the ground floor of Hotel Carlton, is a fantastic place to do just that. The restaurant serves Arabic fusion cuisine made with the freshest ingredients, inspired by the original owners’  Yemenese upbringings and global travels.

The vibrant, cozy ambiance is anything but cookie-cutter. Hungry guests drink and dine while surrounded by glowing lanterns, colorful artwork, and elegant draperies while internationally inspired music drifts through the space.
