Saba certainly did not disappoint on the food front. A wonderful menu, friendly service and a great buzzing atmosphere all the perfect ingredients for a good meal out. The only minor disappointment was that the coffees we ordered for after desert never arrived. However they weren't included on the bill so no problem. We will certainly return for the excellent food.

Dear Ellulje,

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed our food, service and atmosphere. It's seems you nearly had the perfect night out! I don't know why your coffees were not served, there is no reason for that, but apologies. It could have been rectified quickly on the night, its a pity you didn't ask your server. Thank you for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to Saba in the near future.

Best regards,

Paul.

I've eaten in Saba now a few times with my girlfriends and every time I have been here it's been a great evening. The service is great and very friendly, if not a little quick at times. I don't like the feeling that I am being rushed through a meal. LOVE the cocktails for afters :)

Hi Mari,

Thanks for your review. We are delighted that you have had a great evening on your recent visits. Thankfully, the service was 'great and friendly' and you love the cocktails. Next time you come in just mention to your server that you want to take time over your meal and they will ensure that you do not feel rushed. The majority of our food is cooked quickly on a high flame wok, hence it can be fast. Also, with so many theatres and music venues around Saba, customers often are in a rush to get to a gig. It's never a problem though if you are not in a rush. Thanks again for your review.

Looking forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Cadden.

This is a well located Thai restaurant in the city centre serving great food and tasty cocktails. Perfect for a date or, indeed, a group dinner. They do a good value two course lunch. There's usually always a lively atmosphere about the place for dinner. Their hake in banana leaf is a must try, definitely my favourite, combine it with a pornstar martini and you're away!

Went here for a quick lunch with family and opted for 'EXPRESS LUNCH MENU'for Eur 13.95 per person.
It was the nicest and freshest thai food i have tasted in the recent time.
The service was with a smile and prompt which made our experience very enjoyable.
We decided that we will be back soon to try out their dinner menu as well.
Good work. keep it up.
