Saba is one of my Dublin favourites. Excellent service. Delicious food. And last but not least lovely cocktails. The atmosphere is always good. The only issue was how promptly the food was served. It was great because we were hungry and it came out immediately, but this leads you to believe the food is not as fresh as it seems.... More

Recently visited this restaurant was nice , thought it would be a lot nicer ended up getting one of their wok dishes found it wasn't presented very well and there was way too much sauce with it, it really lacked something my partner went for a steak which he found ok, The other downside we found was the heat in...

I had a Thai vegetarian item for my dinner in this restaurant. The taste was good. If you want to change your taste, its a good place to go.

Without being too critical, Saba's reputation seems to (me) be not fully deserved. Perhaps thats due to the fact there not being much competition for the elegant asian/thai food in the local. The service was a little confusing at times... someone would take our order and another person would come by again and ask if our order was taken. There... More

If you're looking for an Asian restaurant in the city, this is the place. The restaurant is very nice and cozy, being at the same time elegant. Friendly staff and a lot of different options on the menu to select from. Allergenes are marked, easy to pick your food from the menu. Can recommend!

Most restaurants in this area seem to have much the same things on the menu so this was a very welcome change. It is a little expensive for Asian food but the quality is excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal with a glass of good wine. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and good service. The bottom line is... More

Visited here on a Monday night and the place was buzzing. Really good food, I had noodles with Duck which were great, not at all greasy and portion size was just enough. Friendly staff although multiple staff coming to take orders which was a little confusing. Highly recommend!

Had our first meal in Saba at the end of July and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect, the food, the service and general ambience were outstanding. Despite it being a mid week visit the restaurant was almost full and thus a great atmosphere was created. Hope to return soon.

Just a great restaurant. They have some world class bartenders, which are a show unto themselves. We tried to book a table and couldn't so we just showed up hoping they'd squeeze us in. The host found a window to put us in, and we were set. I ordered the BOOM, which was incredible. Not for the faint of heart,... More
