Saba (meaning happy meeting place) is a Thai and Vietnamese eatery and cocktail bar. It is located at 22 Upper Baggot Street in Dublin 4 on the banks of the Grand canal beside the Aviva and RDS Stadium. It is situated on a beautiful Victorian street with lots of interesting shops, cafes, restaurants and many of Dublin’s most famous historic pubs.

Don’t worry about the weather, in our Secret Garden, we have you covered rain or shine. Join us for outdoor dining underneath one of our canopies. We also have heaters for when it gets a bit chilly. It’s a funky space with beautiful Italian furniture, blended with some traditional church pews, festoon lighting and stunning graffiti artwork by Subset.

Our kitchen is open from noon until late seven days a week, so whether you fancy a light lunch, dinner with wine, cocktails or weekend brunch, we are the perfect venue. Takeaway is available from all Saba locations.

    At the time we were the only table filled in the restaurant and it took a very long time for everyone to get their drinks. Shared starters were very enjoyable but some dishes were quite tepid in temperature. The mains arrived together which was great but some dishes are much larger portions than others. Deserts were OK.

    I booked Saba initially thinking it was my usual one on Williams st. I was pleasantly surprised at this location. Daniele was our server and he was attentive, friendly, helpful and all around amazing Other staff helped out providing us with an overall amazing experience. We loved our experience at this particular location. The food was INCREDIBLE!

    Everything was lovely and delicious, from the homemade lemonade, to the prawn crackers with the peanut sauce and the delicious Red Duck Curry. My husband got the Boom stir fry and he was worried he would be suffering with the heat but he absolutely loved it and said it was around the same level of spice as an Indian madras/vindaloo. We’ll definitely come back!

    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!
