Nice Ambience and Wine list , Exotic Offering

The place welcomes you with its soft interior and you get mouth watering menu choose from. Nice list of wines to add. Some of the menu is exotic and will appeal to many diners. Low music and you can talk your heart out! Enjoy!

Lovely Thai food and beauty cocktails. 5 star spicy is very spicy so be careful while u select. Fish starter is lovely with banana leaf and Thai green curry is just the best. Prawn crackers are served wit lovely satay and sweet chili. Nice touch. Perfect for solo, romantic or friends meals. 5 star

What a great experience! We visited this restaurant on our last night on a hen weekend in Dublin. I had booked it a month or so in advance. To begin with the service was excellent, the waiter went out of his way with helping us decide on dishes and wine. He even directed us out of the restaurant when we... More

I had the Hake in banana leaves with extra veg - spicy, delicious and fragrant - in fact so much food I didn't need the rice. My friend had Swordfish and veg - again great. Good cocktails and wine selection. €120 for us both - great value for Dublin

Really good food and generous portions. We were a large business group and had the £34.95 a head menu. Variety of starters and you chose your own main course. Superb squid, tempura vegetables, chicken wings and tasty chicken satay skewers. The pad Thai prawn main course was excellent. Friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely visit again.

Visited her with friends of mine for a girls night out. Have to say the atmosphere was fab. We had a great night and the food was lovely. We ordered off a set menu and could not believe the portion sizes. Would definitely go again. Staff were first class also. Great night out!

Had a meal here last week. The biggest plus was the service. The waiter was really helpful and attentive throughout the meal. Its a busy spot so would need reserving. The food was of a high quality. There is not a huge selection but all that we ate was excellent. There is a great bar for cocktails and wine. It... More

My husband and I started our night out with dinner in Saba on Friday night. Our booking was for 7pm and already the place was buzzing. We asked for a recommendation for a cocktail and Karim suggested the Garrigue, named after his hometown in France. It was truly sublime... good enough to have a second. For starter I had the...
