Check out why you should give it a go this weekend . . .”

“Food was superb. Ambiance was equally superb.”

“There were four of us. We each got something different and shared. Everything was scrumptious… interesting menu items. The mixed drink were citrus infused with herbs… loved it!” Trip Advisor

“Great food great service.”

“This Thai place was tasteful and lively without being too noisy. The food was fresh and delicious. Service was really top notch. Loved the curry monk fish served with rice. Place was booked but host kindly squeezed us in when our hotel called trying to get us reservation for the next night. Definitely check out if in Dublin if want something other than typical Irish fare. You will not be disappointed.” Trip Advisor

“Fab food!”

“Visited this restaurant for the second time and it was fabulous. The food is authentic and delicious. I had pepper squid and monkfish curry, both were yummy. I also had one of their cocktails which was delicious and their wine was lovely too, better than the last time I visited where I thought it wasn’t the nicest wine I ever tasted. I would certainly go back again, the squid is one of the best I ever tasted!” Trip Advisor

“I want more!!”

“My fiancé keeps going to SABA for work occasions and kept going on about how great the food is, I finally got to taste for myself and he wasn’t lying!” Trip Advisor

“We had a very tasty chicken satay for starter. I had the Prad Prik Sod with duck which was marked as 3 stars of hotness out of 5. It was a really nice medium to hot spicy level but you could still taste all the flavours! The fella had Phuket noodles which he has ordered a number of times before and he really enjoyed it this time too.” Trip Advisor

“The restaurant was very busy but our waitress was extremely attentive and friendly.” Trip Advisor

SABA: The Cookbook

“I liked their food so much that we also bought the SABA cookbook (all proceeds go to Our Lady’s transplant unit). l have been flicking through the book this morning and there are so many dishes I want to make!! Trip Advisor

“You can tell immediately when you open this beautiful book that everyone in SABA’s kitchen is Thai—the recipes are fresh and authentic, I want to try them all!” Darina Allen, Ballymaloe House

“A true insight into a great authentic Thai/Vietnamese restaurant through photography and recipes. A little bible for Asian cooking.” Derry Clarke, L’Ecrivan

“In this gorgeous cookbook, the dishes are explained with brilliant style and simplicity. I for one will be cooking from it for a long time to come.” Paul Flynn, The Tannery

“Apart from having tasty recipes that are easy to follow, this is an informative book. Wonderful photographs and insights into Asian life make it a good read as well as a reference book.”
Paolo Tullio

“SABA: The Cookbook is so beautiful you could leave it on your coffee table — if you could trust your visitors!!”
Lucinda O’Sullivan, Sunday Independent

SABA Cookery Classes

“Got a taste for Thai? Learn to cook (and eat) like you’re on the streets of Bangkok! Read all about Yolandas Zaw from day at SABA Cookery course on the following link”
Yolanda Zaw,

“I love great food but admittedly never really get too “adventurous” in the kitchen for the dread of how much time and effort goes into delicious dishes. Always a fan of SABA though, I took the cookery course with Chef Tao earlier this year to see could I learn a few skills to up my game. Dishes are delicious and so easy to create that even I can make them, the real Thai way of cooking at home is healthy, fun and fabulously delectable. Be warned though, everyone will want to come round to yours for dinner once they know you’ve spent the day with Chef Tao.”
Rebecca O’ Byrne, Haute So Fabulous

“If you are a novice cook, or are interested in learning more about Thai cooking, the cooking day at SABA is the perfect start. I learned so much about the ingredients used in some of my favourite dishes, and I felt I could easily give them a try at home.”
Lorna Claire Weightman, Social & Personal, Style Isle

“Without doubt, SABA serves up the best Thai food in Dublin and probably Ireland! Going there for a meal is such a treat. The delicate balance of flavours and spices is so well judged and the cocktails are amazing! It really is the perfect place for a girly night out. Plus, I would highly recommend the Thai cooking course with Chef Tao. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable day and a food lover’s dream. Chef Tao truly is a master of Asian cuisine. His passion and knowledge for authentic flavours is nothing short of encyclopaedic and as a consequence, I learnt more about Thai cooking, ingredients and flavours in one afternoon with him, than I had from a lifetime of cookbooks.”
Niamh O’ Reilly, Beautycouture

“I’ve recommended the day to anyone who’s at all interested in Thai food, it’s the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Even if you’re no good in the kitchen and don’t have any intention of becoming the next best Thai chef, you’ll still enjoy the day sampling all the delicious food. I loved Taweesak’s passion for what he does and his ability to impart his wisdom in a no nonsense way. The trip to the Asian food market was really helpful too and the cookbook has been well used at home! Word of warning: save space for the lunch at the end!”
