    The ambience of the restaurant was great - well lit, and lots of happy diners around. We went on a Saturday evening. We ordered drinks, appetizers and main but we didn't have time to get desserts because we were asked to leave --- it is a little bit embarrassing when you are with friends visiting Ireland and celebrating a special occasion. The food was fresh and professionally cooked by a good chef (I would say). I would have wished that the staff would remind customers when there is like 30minutes left so that we would know what to do next. Or the staff should have given us a warning that there is this strict time limit on our table and that we have to eat and drink really fast to make it to desserts. Overall, it was a fair experience. You just have to make sure to order quickly and eat/drink as fast as you can.

    Lovely evening but food was a little disappointing this time. Veg spring rolls were a bit cold inside 2 of them, and would have preferred veg in main to be a little more cooked - onions were practically raw. Service was great. Overall good value. My friend was in a bit of a breeze with the air conditioning too. Hard to please us all!

    Everything was very good, excellent service. The only thing I would say is the level of spice. We asked if it could be adjusted, the waitress said no problem. Mine was supposed to be 4* instead of 5. I like spicy food but it was very very spicy! My friend’s meal was 1*. Her meal was even spicier than mine. So I would just recommend you explain the level of spice better so it doesn’t ruin the meal Apart from that it was perfect!

    First time in Saba since they moved to Sth William Street building and the place looks great. Anna the Manager was exceptional - it was a long awaited catch up with friends and she put us on a table outside at our request and allowed us to stay there for 4 hours, which was super as allowed us to enjoy our meal at a slower pace. Food was delicious as always, service was fantastic, will definitely be back soon.

    Very nice ambience, good food, only unpleasant note was that we paid at the table and on our way out they walked in front of us to stop us and asked: "Have you paid?". We thought they could have handled that way better or at least asked in a less abrupt way!

    Had dinner last night Thursday at 6pm. Food was delicious, service could have been better, weren't asked about our meal, brought no dessert menu. Also, way too much crushed ice in the cocktails. Atmosphere lovely and food was great though.

    Arrived at Saba and was seated straight away after booking on Open table. Service was excellent. Waiters were lovely and helpful. Food was amazing and so tasty. I would recommend the Crispy Chilli Chicken and Phas Nam Prik Pao with beef. Portions sizes are perfect too.
