We visited Saba for lunch last weekend. I was really looking forward to it as I’ve been a few times before and always enjoyed it in the past. I've been a big fan until now. Unfortunately my past experiences didn't live up to expectations. I ordered from the special lunch menu which I thought was good value. I ordered Wan... More

We came into Saba by chance on our first night in Dublin and it was so wonderful we had to go back a couple of days later on our last night in Dublin. The taste of that Red Curry is still in my mouth... The service is absolutely perfect. We have felt like we were the most important guests in... More

We had our first meal in Ireland at this Thai restaurant. Our choice of Saba was definitely good. The interior décor is warm and comfortable. One would appreciate the many large size framed pictures depicting all unique forms of transportations of the South East Asia countries. The Thai chicken wings appetizer was very tender and juicy. Other dishes such as... More

There are really not enough superlatives to describe the Saba. Some of the best asian food combined with a relaxed atmosphere and excellent service make the Saba a must for everyone in dublin. Greetings from Switzerland.

Each time I go I love it more and more. Best Thai/Vietnamese food in Dublin by a mile. Staff are great, and some pretty girls working there too, that are knowledgeable and friendly. To be honest, I find it hard to go anywhere else as it is so good and not to pricey. The Boom curry is very hot but... More
