I was born in Malaysia but moved to Ireland at a very young age. All memories of holidays back to Malaysia seem to be of food. My uncle recommended that I should try Saga, as I enjoy eating out. Came here with Dad on a Tuesday evening. The place doesn't look inviting from the outside but I had been told that the food is good, so long as the food is good I'm happy. Greeted with a lovely smile we were sat and menu's brought promptly by the waitress. The restaurant was quiet with only one other table, but picked up a table of 1 and a table of 7 during our meal. All the customers, with the exception of the table of one (Irish) were all Malaysian. Always a good sign when ethnic people are eating the food, means something must be right! The restaurant is quite small in size and decorated with Malaysian art (kites) on the walls. Nothing fancy here like.
To drink Dad ordered one Air Bandung (milk and rose cordial syrup) and one Mango Lassi (mango, sugar and yoghurt) as I hadn't a clue and he'd know best. The menu on offer is simple and authentic. To start we shared a portion of Satay Chicken Skewers which came garnished with red onion, cucumber, Ketupat (a Malay rice cake) and the spicy peanut sauce. Fast and nice. For mains Dad ordered the Nasi Lemak with extra pieces of Prawn Sambal, while I opted for the Beef Rendang. Although mine was nice, I preferred the Nasi Lemak. Overhearing other customers ordering, (not that hard as it was quiet) everyone seemed to go for the Nasi Lemak, it is after all Malaysia's national dish. I enjoyed the food and it's going to be the closest thing to authentic in Ireland (well apart from Dad's cooking!). Dinner for two cost just over €30. We left happy and would come back again.
