What we're all about!

Our food speaks for itself

Fresh Thai and Vietnamese herbs, vegetables and fruit arrive on a weekly basis from Bangkok to Saba - sourced from co-op farmers to ensure fair prices for farmers. All the beef, chicken and seafood is sourced locally in Ireland and the tea, coffee and sugar is organic and fair trade. Saba also loves to push to test our diners palates with an array of unusual ingredients like the intense betal leaf herb, banana flower and nutritious red Thai rice.
