Food ok service needs big improvements.

The waitress was way to familiar and unprofessional, having a smart comment to make on a few occasions, this I've... read more

Had dinner here last evening and found it very disappointing. Certainly compared to previous visits to Sabai last evening's meal was very poor. I had a starter named Tempura on the menu but the batter was closer to fish and chip shop batter than tempura. I could not in fact tell if I was picking up a prawn or a... More

We had the tasting menu for 2. Absolutely gorgeous and as I can't eat eggs they swapped the starter of dumplings for satay which was really nice. Nice relaxed atmosphere but most of all the food was delicious. There are 2 starters, 4 main course and 3 desserts. Would definitely go here again and recommend to others.

Had the pleasure of eating here last weekend on an impromptu trip to Waterford, and we wanted to grab something quick to eat when we arrived.... as we were staying in a hotel close by, we took a walk and stumbled upon this gem. I had a delicious Masaman Curry with cashew nuts and potatoes, with perfectly cooked rice! It... More
