Enjoyable Lunch

We ordered from the express lunch menu. The food was very tasty. My chicken wings starter was generous. My main dish was good, apart from the shortage of chicken. Service was excellent. We will definitely return.

Ate here as a group recently and we were all really impressed, the food was delicious and the restaurant had a great atmosphere with a DJ playing music in the corner. Portion sizes are huge! Our only gripe was when we sat we were given a special group menu (there were just 6 in our group) and when we questioned... More

A big group of us went on for a stag do and we were well looked after by the staff. All food and drink was delicious and reasonable priced given its location. I would highly recommend it.

Asian fusion food. This was by 3rd visit. Very popular so expect a noisy restaurant. In the latest visit the waitress didn't know what cocktails were on offer but those we chose were excellent all the same. Had pre-booked for dinner. Maitre d' was very friendly and sat us quickly. Food was excellent. It is a little pricey but the... More

My third visit to Saba but this time I was a little disappointed. This restaurant has a good atmosphere, buzz, live DJ lounge music (Friday night) and nice low lighting. Myself and my sister were welcomed and taken to a little 2 seater table. The service was fast, perhaps a little too fast as my sister felt under pressure to... More

I visited Saba with a group of girl friends last month on a Friday night. I went for the xao hao lo (beef and cashew) which I would highly recommend. The beef was so tasty and the flavours were just perfect. I had it with the brown and red rice which was also perfect. Dinner was followed by some fabulous... More

I don't know if the food was that good if the review is worth it in compare with other restaurants, because they are also good of quality and could also in... More

Thai food at its best in this highly praised and extremely popular city centre venue. We were a party of 4 at 9.30 p.m. on a Saturday night when the place was packed and very noisy but there was a great buzz . Service was very prompt despite the fact that there wasn't an empty seat in the house. Prices... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by two irishmen we met in a bar. They were very friendly and very very drunk. I'm sober and even handed-there's nothing bad about this restaurant food wise and service wise. A bit too pricey and way too noisy but almost each one of us has a benchmark restaurant of such nature and this... More
