“excellent food, but the service is below average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

i gave sabas an average rating because i find that it is a bit overpriced compared to other african restaurants that i have been too. I find that here I am jsut paying for the food, because the service is severly lacking. There are children running around all over the place and sometimes i feel like a babysitting service when i go here. a babysitting service that pays to babysit kids... odd... the food is spectacular, but as i said, the service is lacking... bigtime...

“Best Food in Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

My friends and I have gone to Saba's many times. The food is terrific and the owners are very kind and hospitable. It is pretty good for vegetarian fare and Saba will create special plates for people with dietary needs.
