Saba is a Clarendon Street situated restaurant whose Thai and Vietnamese cuisine has consistently stunned the critics to the point of awards being dispensed. Named for the Thai term for ‘happy meeting place’, Saba deftly lives up to its name with a Thai beef and ginger grass salad and selection of noodle dishes formidable. Meanwhile, eastern favourites like Xao Hao Lu and Phad Prik Sod find delicious accompaniment of meat, or tofu as the vegetarian option. So successful is Saba’s formula, that they have opened up a second branch in Baggot Street.
Those in search of internationally renowned dishes like Thai green curry won’t be let down; in the curry department the restaurant impresses and innovates with its own take on the ‘caveman’ curry a favourite. To drink, Saba’s series of cocktails and non-alcoholic ‘mocktails’ go down a treat, while wine, sake and beer is likewise present. All this tastiness is enjoyed in the venue’s relaxing ambiance – warm paper lanterns and purple textures beautifully contrast the dark tables. Whether you’re departing onward to Temple Bar, or slinking back to your hotel for a satiated sleep, this eatery’s excellent location a smidgeon from Trinity College won’t disappoint.
