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.

    Completely ignored by waiting staff after they cleared the table from the main course , nobody asked if we wanted more drinks, coffee, deserts and we sat for a hour then I had to request numerous times to get the bill, then the card payment machine- awfully The worse thing was that their was a human hair in my curry, didn’t want to make a fuss in front of my friends as I had suggested the place and booked the table. I don’t think I would return

    Table of 3. I ordered veg spring rolls and plant based pad thai, both okay but dull. My guests ordered hoisin duck spring rolls followed by hake wrapped in banana leaves and crispy chilli chicken. Again the hoisin duck rolls were dull. The crispy chilli chicken was not crispy at all. The only good dish was the hake and this was fantastic. Service couldn't be faulted. Very clean facilities.

    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.
