Review on Saba

'Colonial meets contemporary' at this lively ethnic newcomer with a name that translates as 'happy meeting place'. It's the brainchild of Paul Cadden, who was the driving force behind Diep Le Shaker and Diep Noodle Bar elsewhere in the city. He has fitted out Saba with vibrant colour schemes, antique mirrors, polished concrete floors and a menu that offers a mix of authentic Thai and Vietnamese cooking.

The focus is on rich authentic flavours and fresh healthy ingredients, many of which are imported direct from the Far East (betel leaves, banana flowers and red rice, for example). Dishes span everything from Vietnam's emblematic 'pho' soups to punchy Thai noodles in various forms. In between, look for 'village potstickers' (steamed vegetable dumplings with soy vinaigrette), hake cooked in banana leaves with red curry sauce, 'bς' (fillet of beef marinated in Chang beer with cracked black pepper, baby carrots and turnips) and 'cua lot' (soft-shell crab with bird's-eye chillies, galangal and Kaffir lime leaves). To drink, there are Thai and Vietnamese beers, plus some well-chosen wines to match the spiciness of the food.
