Asian shelter from icey winter thunderstorms

Went to have Asian lunch when we could not bare the unstoppable raining throughout Dubin city. The menu quite straightforward and clear about food allergies and diets so it is easy to pick something suitable for every body - gluten-free, vegetarian, dairy-free, paleo, low-carb, etc. I'm following... read more

Mains chosen were hake, swordfish, paleo, and massaman curry. We sat down to eat at 4ish when the place was empty however on leaving at 6, it had... More

Visited Saba last night with colleagues from work. Food excellent particularly the Calamari and Trout starters. Cocktails recommended. We were slightly rushed at the end to vacate our table for the next sitting which was understandable given a Friday night

I have eaten here numerous times and each time I have been impressed. Great selection on the menu and the cocktails are delicious. Great for a girls night out or group but works well too for couples. Service is always great...I can't recommend it enough.

Booked for 13 on a busy Friday night. Service was superb and good food. Great choice of starters and main course even though it was a limited group menu. Only 2 choices of dessert although when we asked for ice cream, that was no problem. We were a little squashed around 1 long table but all in all it was... More

We were extremely lucky to get a table straight on arrival around 8pm. The rest of the restaurant was very busy and the restaurant had a great ambience to the place. The food was spectacular and the menu is laid out really well with offerings for vegetarians, vegans, paleos and others with no dietary requirements. I had the massaman curry... More
