Loved the food here and the accommodation for gluten free and coeliac is great!! Loved the deep fried sweet potatoe and the accommodations with the main courses. The noodles are delicious. Great venue and space. Really enjoyable.

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

Great drinks too! Be sure to reserve early to get in to this place. Booked it a month in advance and had to go a... More

Sat at the bar, knowledgeable, attentive and charming waitress recommended a beautiful white wine (old age precludes me remembering what it was!!) 4 starters were perfect - beef in betel leaves, amazingly spiced, tender,with a super dipping sauce - smoked trout on more betel leaves,...
