I've often bypassed Saba in Clarendon Street, as I thought it looked dark and gloomy from the outside. Ventured in for lunch today and was not disappointed! Although the predominant decor colours are black or dark, a bit reminiscent of a night club(!), this is a very pleasant place to dine. The atmosphere is bright (and maybe a bit noisy)... More

From the warm welcome by the Maitre D, the efficient but not overly fussy service you are in the right mood to enjoy the food. The tempura starter is highly recommended and if your party's tastes range from a mild Pad Thai to a fiery curry you will find the complete range here. No wonder this restaurant is in the... More

We had tried so many restaurants but the service and low food has always let them down. Saba we know delivers great food and quick for a big team of 25 people who are hungry. can't recommend this place enough for team events/nights out. Great job guys!

First visit to this restaurant and based on this experience, would return and recommend. Good choice of Asian foods on offer, service attentive and efficient. Lovely contemporary décor and restful to dine in. Very central location in Clarendon Street....just behind Grafton Street. Two/Three course options on offer as well as a la carte.

I just came from a frantic meeting and thought I'd treat myself to Saba. Barbara was my server and she was amazing. She's a lovely amazing energy which helped me calm down, enjoy excellent food and beautiful wine. She's a credit to the owner. If I owned a restaurant I'd hire her in an instant.

Ate here for a girls night out. It was very busy as there had been a rugby match earlier but we were immediately seated in a booth. There was a great atmosphere and the host was attentive throughout the night. Waitress knowledgeable about the food. I ordered asparagus and oyster mushrooms, delicious and a prawn dish, very tasty and packed... More

i visited Saba recently for dinner with my Mom for her 70th birthday.. Mom was a little hesitant as she has never had a Thai meal before... The welcome was amazing and Peter the manager was so nice and made a real fuss of mom... It was a very busy night and the buzz and atmosphere was great. We both... More
