Went to Saba on a weekday for a romantic diner and were very satisfied. The menu gave us a quite good range of taste. The presentation in the plates is original. We will be back for sure!

We entered this restaurant last minute and to be fair the matre d could not have been more helpful, we didn't have a table booked and he got us one, he was happy and cheerful. A nice fella. That's where it stopped being good. We ordered off the set menu and to be honest the food was way over priced for what it was. The satay chicken was cold. Then I ordered the chicken boom. The waitress did say it was spicy but hell was it spicy. I actually couldn't eat more than 3 mouthfuls and was in pain with the spice. When the waitress collected out plates I said it was too spicy, she just shrugged her shoulders and walked off. By the way I love spicy food. WON'T BE BACK

Superb menu selection backed up by the quality of the food and the service. Sirloin steak, curry sauce and rice would not be my usual combination however it was superb and I'd highly recommend it.

I enjoyed my lunch at Saba today. The simple two course had some interesting choices and the spring rolls were fresh light and crispy, not at all greasy, the spicy noodles were tasty, generous and delightfully spicy.

Service was attentive and pleasant.

Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your lunch. The two course lunch for €13.95 is very popular and the good news is that there will be new dishes added to it Monday week when we reopen after our refurbishment. Looking forward to welcoming you back to Saba in the near future.

We visited as part of a large group. We had a lot of the group not happy with the menu and didn't enjoy the choice available.
The service was slow and many times we prompted staff to clear tables or struggled to get their attention.
The food I sampled was tasty, however others in the group were not impressed.
