What can I say, it was properly good food. The service was a little abrupt and sometimes a bout rushed bu they were very very busy, we popped in on the off chance without booking and managed to squeeze us in so that may be the reason. Despite all of this the food was fantastic

We were kind of pubbed out, so we decided on Thai when we walked by SABA and smelled the food. It was crowded and we didn't have reservations, but the host quickly fit us in. We thought that the menu was limited, but we asked the server to make our food really, really spicy with fresh cut chilies. That can... More

In Saba back in February I ordered a main course to be informed five minutes later that it was no longer available, this happened to me a total of four times that night! The manager was so embarrassed she gave me a €50 free voucher. My wife and I recently returned and had a pleasant meal. The service was very... More

As a crowd of girls hitting the town we dropped in here to see if we could get a table at short notice. Thankfully they accomodated us with a great table. We had a mixed platter to start with and then we all had our mains. The food was fabulous. My only problem I had with this restaurant was seeing... More

I loved the food, we both had noodle dishes and they were scrumptious. The restaurant was extremely busy and loud, I could hardly hear myself think, I felt like a sardine in a tin sandwiched between packed tables. I spent the whole time shouting at my friend!. I do prefer a quieter atmosphere so I'm not sure I will be... More

Busy Friday evening and we headed in without a reservation. The place was buzzing but we got a high table for two against the back wall beside the bar. Our waitress was Rachel and she was great. We ordered our main courses from the Wok, a chicken dish and a vegetable one. Slight hick up on the wine as the... More

We got take out from here and the chicken in the dishes was dry. I guess some chicken IS dry, but we were disappointed anyway! This place came recommended and there were tons of people in the cool restaurant itself. Alas, not a favorite.

Went here with group of friends for drinks on Tuesday night. Sat at the bar & ordered wine & cocktails. Lizzie looked after us very very well from start to finish. She is brilliant at her job. Other staff member are nice & friendly too. Place is trendy & cool. Can't wait to go back.

Had lunch here with my husband and some friends. Their menu is extensive and unlike some restaurants their set menu of lunch specials had a lot of choice and was exceptional value at about 13 euro per head. This is great value for Dublin prices. The food was great, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We weren't rushed and... More
