Saba means “happy meeting place” in Thai. We offer traditional Thai and Vietnamese dishes at reasonable prices in a setting described as "colonial meets contemporary". Saba Baggot Street brunch is available on Saturdays and Sundays from 11.30am until 4pm.

Tao, our executive chef, has created the perfect brunch menu with a twist for Saba Baggot Street and wants to give our customers an Asian alternative to the normal omelette and eggs benedict.

Saba is renowned for our delicious food, fantastic atmosphere and award winning cocktails that will tantalise your tastebuds. Sanook![Enjoy!]

We were visiting from the US and found this place on OpenTable. Our review is a mixed bag. Ambiance was very nice - very busy and "trendy". Our waiter took our drink order and I asked if we could order an appetizer to start and he said "Can we just get your drinks before we order your food?" We obliged and then ordered our appetizers along with our meals only to be served everything together. I mistakenly ordered my meal (my fault) with a mild spice level and it was very bland. All the other dishes were very tasty. Our waiter disappeared for the last 20 minutes of the evening. We would have ordered another round of drinks but by the time another waiter finally checked in on us, we decided to pass. Good ambiance, some good dishes, the cocktails were tasty - service was poor, felt a bit rushed...mixed bag.

Always liked Saba in town so v pleased they opened on Baggot St. I sometimes also use their take away and it arrives hot and delicious. I like the lay out of Baggot st and fact it’s not too large. Staff are friendly And service is good. Overall it’s a good venue for casual dining with Friends. Always return!

We got a warm welcome, our table for seven was ready and we had delicious food served immediately when ready. There is an excellent selection on the menu. Our children love the food here too and have lots of choice and generous portions. We eat here regularly and are never disappointed.

The Saba was an excellent restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience there. Some of the service was a bit slow but we put that down to a fairly full Restaurant. We would certainly eat there again on our next stay in Dublin

I made a booking for a large party and there was a problem with the online confirmation. The staff were quick to remedy and sorted us all out without much ado. The food as always was fantastic. A real gem.

Only slightly unfavourable comment is that the service was rushed and the courses came too quickly. It was not a busy night and many tables were empty. However, overall I would recommend Saba to friends and I will return.

Terrific, authentic food. Take their chili-pepper indicators for level of spiciness as marked!

Suuuuper tasty dinner! Only reason why not a 5-star-review is that our cocktails arrived after our dinner, but when we got them they were wonderful!

Love this restaurant and no complaints but on Wednesday night our food was only lukewarm. Coffees the same. They couldn’t try more often to get rid of us, even though we were in the last sitting and the tables weren’t needed for new customers.
Atmosphere and service excellent as always

Sam is absolutely amazing!!!

From the first call (I booked the wrong day and time), he was absolutely awesome. He had the table we requested, and could not do more for us.

Would recommend every time!!!

Great food, with plenty of choice, good value cocktails only €7 up to 7pm. Good selection of gluten free options and also a paleo caveman meal which was delicious.
Service is good but not pushy and the restaurant has lovely decor.
Highly recommended.

enjoyed meal, waitress very friendly & efficient.
however the seating at the tables on the floor is very cramped, the tables are too close together. Other peoples conversations can be very very load & also you are more conscious of your own private conversations as other people can hear.

Lovely meal with another couple who were visiting Dublin. The waitress was really friendly and helpful. She helped choose a lovely bottle of wine and let me taste a few which I appreciate. We had the squid and spring rolls to share as a starter they were absolutely delicious. Main courses were also good, portions were fractionally too big in my opinion as we left a little behind so we could have shared three between us. Overall a great experience and our guests loved it.

We're big fans of Saba. Food always of good quality....love that we can see the relative calorie values if we're feeling virtuous! Invariably friendly and efficient service adds to the positive experience.
