Very close to our hotel (just outside the back entrance). Good quality food at a reaosnable price and ideal after a long day travelling and working. Staff were attentive and cheerful and the portions just right.

Had late lunch with my 17 yrs old daughter before heading for shopping. Great food, reasonable price and very satisfied with service. Heard about negative feedbacks on waiting time - not true at all. The non-alcoholic cocktails are divine! Being Asian, this restaurant has passed my standards. Almost authentic taste as if you eat them at the streets of Ho Chin Minh/Bangkok. Reasonable price of the right amount of servings. Beautiful restaurant, great food but I can say the great service made our dining experience enjoyable and memorable. Well done to Saba! Keep it up!

Visited at the weekend for an evening meal, was quite busy, but nice atmosphere. Service was prompt but a little cold/detached, not much effort. May have been because the restaurant was full but still disappointing. Selection was interesting, good range of choice. Food was good, not amazing given Saba's reputation, but still good for Thai/Vietnamese Cuisine in Ireland. Prices were on the high side for what was on offer, drinks were definitely overpriced. Overall the experience was okay, pleasant but not exceptional.

went here on a Saturday night and when we rang to book were told we could only have a seat at the bar. No problem.

When we got there we actually had a bar table and we were more than happy. The service was really good and our waitress was very friendly. Also it was day after Halloween so all he staff were dressed up and it definitely gave it a good feel, although our waitresses makeup boils did make me double take - gave my wife a good laugh!!!

The food was above average and we really enjoyed it, it wasn't earth shattering but service was quick and it was more than good enough given how busy they were and we had no complaints.

We had two really excellent Irish coffees to finish and left more than happy, biggest plus for me was the atmosphere was very buzzy, very professional and certainly gave the impression of being very well managed.

I would definitely go back...
