I went here on valentines day and I thought the food was so tasty and the portions are really fair I was stuffed by the end of it! We got three courses for 39.50. Only problem I had with the menu was there were only two choices of dessert, but it wasn't a huge problem because both were amazing. The... More

I have eaten here many times. Its a well known eatery and generally needs prior booking. The ambiance in the restaurant is always one of great energy and the wine selection is good. The food is very tasty but i find it too expensive for the quality of output. This is a restaurant for consistency and ambiance but you will... More

Four of us went to Saba on a Saturday night and had an excellent meal. The service was spot on, and the ambiance was just what we were looking for - good lighting, music, and a real buzz going on. The food was some of the best Thai I've had and I thought it was fantastic that a point is... More

I've read some questionable reviews on this place but I have to say that I liked it. A lot. Really nice room, good bar, great (really great) service. We had lunch (three of us) and the place was buzzing. It has a sort of a Paris/New York vibe - it's about eating: Get in, relax, enjoy. I had a pad... More

A post Xmas treat. Seated immediately and very friendly waitress served us. We ordered a mix of deep fried veg and spring rolls- none of which tasted of anything, no seasoning what so ever apart from the small side sauce. I've never eaten such bland spring rolls. For main we had 1 veg pad Thai and 2 chicken pad Thai.... More

Had dinner in Saba Clarendon Street at the end of September 2016 as part of an office function. It’s great to see the restaurant doing so well, place was packed and the atmosphere was excellent. We were a large group and this often leads to a drop in food quality but absolutely not in Saba. Food was excellent, we ate... More

My colleague and I had lunch here on the 13th Jan 2017. Before ordering our meal, we placed a drinks order of 1 Harvey Wall Banger and a glass of house red. After five minutes the waitress returned saying the bar man did not know what a Harvey Wallbanger was. Considering Saba is supposed to be a cocktail lounge/restaurant, I... More

Attended for a Christmas party. Only fault was that we were split over 2 tables (back to back) which really divided our party. Food was prompt, hot and tasty with a reasonable selection to cater for a variety of tastes on their group menu. Also we were kindly facilitated by holding a meal in the kitchen as a member of...
