Whilst on a weekend break to Dublin one of our taxi drivers had recommended us to try Saba. We did not book in as the thought never crossed my mind. When we got there the restaurant was fully booked but the staff generously offered us a bar seat, was the bar is very big they placed ourselves and another couple... More

The food here is really excellent. The ambience of the room is quite comfortable and the level of noise is excellent. Quite surprised and pleased they had a full bar and a significant array of beers.

This has to be my favourite restaurant in Dublin city. The quality of the service is always so efficient and friendly. The hake in banana leaf was delicious and so was the massaman curry. For the location it is very reasonably priced and the food and atmosphere is always great! The cocktails are fab as well! There is a reason... More

I've been searching for the best pad thai in Dublin and I guess I found it here in Saba! The restaurant ambiance was very nice and quiet. We also ordered chicken wings which were a sweet kind. The only thing is they kind of take time to serve your food here. I would not come here if I am really... More

This is an expensive, beautifully designed restaurant. It is dark, on multiple levels with hip furniture and a chill soundtrack. The serving staff was outstanding. The cocktails were clever and well-presented. That brings us to the food. We had a green curry without a hint of green and a phad prik sod that had no taste beyond sugar. If you... More

This honestly the first time I could not stop thinking about a meal. I had aspergus and mushrooms as a starter, which were nice. My friend duck rolls, also good but then I tried the seabass signature dish and that is to die for. Only had a dish like this once.. in Cambodia. It is awefull that the place is... More

We were ready for something other than the typical Irish food after 10 days. We were lucky to find Saba! Some of the best Thai food I've had in years.

I popped in here for dinner as I was staying in a nearby hotel. Staff were welcoming and professional and gave me a quiet table as I wanted a bit of space to work. The atmosphere was buzzy and clearly a place friends and couples used to meet up. Menu was really varied (I had a beautiful salad) and also... More

There were 6 of us and we ordered from the set menu. It was priced at €34.95 and this was for all three courses. For starters the waiter suggested we have a mixture of platters which mean't we could all try a piece of everything. Everyone enjoyed this, even if some of the squid was left over and not to...

We would highly recommend this awesome restaurant. You would be crazy not to take a trip and taste their amazing food. The staff are all really really nice and super efficient. The atmosphere is lovely and as they knew it was Anniversary they came out with complimentary desserts with ' happy anniversary' written in chocolate on the plate. It was... More
