Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Quick meal after days shopping. Ordered crispy chilli chicken with noodles but unfortunatley dish tasted terrible. Low quality meat, overpriced, sauce was extremely sweet and meat was bland. Poor chipper quality food at premium price. Avoid.

We love the food, we normally take 3 to 4 startes to share as we find the mains too expensive, but this time there was a special menu for 40 euro 2 course with a cocktail. Finally value for money! However, the service is crap...just like most restaurants in ireland. If you want to make more money, stay contacted with your customers. Are they enjoying the food, do they need more drinks, even if the glasses are still full or half full maybe they don't like it..... sell sell! When starter is done the rip the plate away ASAP, but when main is done nobody looks at you. We were actually up for a dessert, but no-one came, we couldn't get eye contact and it wasn't busy at all. It was so disappointing. I really wanted a coffee, but we got annoyed and left without paying tip. The business missed out on another 40 euros plus the waiter missed out on tip. How much does the business miss in the long run?More

This is a first class Thai vietnamese restaurant with a very varied menu at a slightly upmarket price. That said you get what you pay for and in this case it was well worth the money. There as ricj range of starters and mains with...all variations provided from vegan and vegirtsrio to fish chicken and beef. The menu includes a full bar of beers spirits wines and cocktails. Excellant table service from an attentive and courteous waitress. It's well worth a visitMore

VERY basic overprice thai food! Kids chicken crispy bites main course was very dry and hard to eat (so it was left behind/ not eaten, in full), The curries below basic, my green prawns curry was equivalent of a cheap take a way, eatable but...nothing special, considering that this main dish is priced at 27 eur, I would have expected something better!. I was expecting Dublin standard but is certainly miles from it except for the prices, Unfortunately I cannot recommend.More

We a family of five with young adults and parents stopped in here for a meal on a busy Thursday evening. We did not have a reservation but they took a reservation for an hour’s time and we looked around the lovely Christmassy Kildare Village....They phoned us when the table was ready. We had the chicken wings to start, two portions between us and that was plenty. They were delicious! Then we all had a variety of main courses which were all Thai - curry, noodles etc.. and all done to perfection. We had drinks, hot chocolate and desert and it was all fabulous. There was a great buzz in the place and the service was excellent. I have given 4 stars because it was expensive and then they added on a 12% gratuity which I think defeats the purpose. Apparently you can ask for it to be taken off the bill but that would be a bit of a pain and the service was so good I would have given a tip anyway. But to have it just added onto the bill defeats the purpose of a gratuity. Overall it was really good and everyone really enjoyed it.More

Incredibly rude manager greeted us upon arrival, practically barked at us for being 5 minutes late, didn’t even say hello. We should have left at that point as he was extremely rude and didn’t even greet us with a hello. The food that followed was...barely edible. The starters were cold and dry, they tasted like they had sat there for hours. We weren’t offered any water for the table, the service was very poor. The chicken in our main meal tasted off, the dish was very greasy and neither of us could eat our meal. We weren’t offered to look at the dessert menu nor tea or coffee. Incredibly overpriced, €90 for two starters and two mains that were genuinely not edible. Will never go to this restaurant again even though it’s on our doorstep.More

Went to Saba for a late lunch this afternoon, it was really busy but the staff were very polite and seated us within 5mins. When we asked about specific dietary requirements they were really helpful and guided us though the menu. The food was delicious...and very fresh. Martha was our waitress and she was great, very friendly and helpful. She even organised to have some take away food organised for us to collect when we were leaving to give to my parents. Great experience overallMore

Horrible experience. Ordered kids meal sweet and sour for my son. 5 pieces of chicken arrived with a bowl of rice. Questioned why it was so small as this was resembling a baby bowl. The manager towered over my son whilst arguing me. My son...is 8. He said as a good will gesture he would add more chicken and said it in a patronising tone. Not apologetic and added no one else has complained ( therefore I’m the problem). I ended up having to leave to avoid from crying. Horrible manager.More

I made a booking in person at 1.30pm for 45 minutes later when I made the booking I had my newborn baby in his pram which the girl at the desk could visibly see . We came back at 2.05pm to see if our table...was ready only to be rudely greeted by a lady in a red top who didn’t even say hello instead she greeted us with “ you didn’t mention the buggy on booking “. I explained I didn’t need to as I made the booking in person and the girl who took the booking was at the desk she stayed silent . I have never had such bad customer service on entering a restaurant. The food was lovely but I don’t feel welcome to come back after that extremely disappointing experience .More
