If you think the meals, service or filthy kitchen is all bad and you are all commenting that the Restaurant was shut down because of their filthy Restaurant etc. (front page news of The Bendigo Advertiser, Saba House Restaurant closed - rats in kitchen); you should see what they do to the houses they own and the houses they rent...

I was there a week ago, and they were closed pending entry of a new management. Will try if they open when I visit Bendigo again. Cannot give any rating for the moment.

Our whole family loves this restaurant. The staff are always so friendly, the food is delicious. We go at least once a month, and I have used it often as a catch up place with friends. It's cheap, but the quality of the food is excellent. My hint - when ordering, ask the owner for his recommendation. He has never... More

First of all the positives.1 Open Kitchen 2. Stainless Steel 3. Clean Negatives: Most dishes are very average. We ordered take away Nasi Goreng last week among other dishes. The Nasi was just fried rice with 2 prawns in it.... Reward the good, Punish the Bad. Verdict: Bad

Being a Malaysian who now calls Bendigo home, I rarely frequent Chinese restaurants as I find them not authentic enough, mostly. (I'm still getting used to Caucasian waiting staff in an Asian establishment...) However, Sabah House is one of my favourite restaurants in Bendigo, and we frequent it semi-regularly. The food can be a little oily, but the taste is... More

really enjoyed this restaurant, went based on reading other people's reviews and we were not disappointed. We got the nasi goreng and butter prawns, really flavourful. Atmosphere was pretty average, staff were not particularly attentive but it was ok. We couldn't eat all the butter prawns as we had so much other food, and the cook looked over the counter... More

When the dish I ordered arrived I was astounded by the size of the serving - I ate alone but the dish could easily have served two. The proprietor was most charming and could not have been more helpful. Great food, beautifully cooked in a family-friendly atmosphere - would recommend this restaurant any time.
