Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Rose wine I ordered was a perfect accompaniment to my stir fry. Seating was out door due to the new covid regulations but it was a beautiful September evening. A thoroughly pleasant experience over all.

Regulars who always enjoy Saba. Slightly disappointed with the prawn sweet and sour, noticeably less prawns in the dish and the kids chicken sweet and sour the same. Hopefully a once off as we come here 3/4 times a month when in town and always enjoy it. Lovely service and clean.

Ive always loved Saba for it's buzzy atmosphere so was eager to see what it was like during Covid times! It didn't disappoint. The staff are great - one of the guys (usually makes the over the phone bookings) is so lovely and sound and helpful. The food was great, staff friendly (all in facemarks), and the set up of the restaurant (with dividers) was brilliant - you have lots of space and don't even really notice all the dividers between tables. The cocktails are still excellent, and I love that the bar staff are always happy to tailor your cocktail to your request. The food was good too (portion size is perfect, not too big or too small, and you could definitely eat a starter & main!)

Overall great work Saba - made us feel like we were on a proper night out.

Food as ever is great and staff friendly and efficient. All nicely laid out with separation and screens between tables. Staff wearing masks. So all very safe.
We were located under a speaker and at start was just right with music in background and easy to converse, but 10 minutes in the background music level was notched up significantly. We asked the waiter if the sound could be brought down a notch and in fairness she did 30 seconds later. That lasted for 2 mins however before cranked up again. This time we asked to be relocated and thankfully no problem as there was one or two tables available. Did notice that music level increased again over our visit as final tables filled.
Saba you have a great offering, thats enjoyed by people who want to meet, chat and enjoy dinner together. Dont over do the music, keep it in the background.

We had a fabulous night at Saba last Saturday. So accommodating and when we had to move our numbers last minute, the team could not have been more prompt.
Food, ambiance and service were outstanding. We were concerned about Government measures around Covid and felt very safe and that the SABA team listened.
Thank you Thomas, Anna, William and team at SABA!

I had the Chang Rai noodle dish with the chicken wings and black pepper squid to start. The food was delicious. Nice balance of fresh ingredients. I'd definitely go back. Great buzz on a Thursday night.

We were seated and had menus and no one acknowledged us for 30 mins so we left. There were plenty of people on the floor but no one bothered to look around them. They were only focused on the big party tables or bigger groups. Not great at all.

Friendly staff. Food was good but pricey. We shared a king prawn salad which was good and hake wrapped in banana leaf. The hake was cooked perfectly however it was very heavily flavoured with star anise though there was no mention on the menu of star anise. Had it said so on the menu I wouldn’t have ordered it so that was disappointing. Obviously a very popular spot but very noisy.
