"We are so not dressed for this" Upon walking into Saba dressed in hiking clothes, we were not expecting to be sat but luckily the staff did not blink an eye at our wardrobe. We ordered the Xao Hao Lo (Wok 1) one with beef and one with tofu. The dish comes with a side of rice- plenty! and the... More

Visited place on several occasions before and I'm returning customer for the food and atmosphere. Food remained good quality and cocktails are very good to enjoy. Service I did not enjoy at all. You are being rushed from the minute you enter, no chance to actually look even at the menus. It's like waiters were instructed to push customers for... More

We were welcomed into the restaurant on. busy Saturday night and given a holding seat at the bar and served some lovely cocktails. When a table became available, we were seated and eating within 15 minutes and the food, atmosphere, music and service were world class. What a super operation, great staff and we left appreciatively after a great dining... More

Terrible! Don't go here unless you fancy VERY overpriced Asian streetfood, and a TERRIBLE pretend-to-be-DJ. Definitely the worst.

Had one of the best cooked steaks I've ever eaten here today. I eat here regularly and it's consistently excellent.

Saba was our first meal in Dublin and it did not disappoint. We left Killarney that morning and drove to Cliffs of Moher before dropping off our rental car at the airport and taking the bus into town to our hotel. When we arrived around 8pm on a Thursday, we were hungry, dressed a bit casually and did not have... More

Booked a table for 6.30 on a Friday evening. Arrived to a friendly welcome. Orders were quickly taken and we were really surprised at how quick the food arrived. Everyone enjoyed their meal. No pressure to move after the meal. Restaurant was very busy but service was of a high standard. Toilets were clean with hand lotion provided. Prices were... More
