Saba
Saba, meaning "happy meeting place" in Thai, is a contemporary restaurant and bar serving traditional Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. The bar at Saba has a reputation to live up to as its executive chef, Taweesak Trakoolwattana, previously cooked for the King and Queen of Thailand.

The bar itself backs onto the restaurant, separated by an ebony slatted wood screen. Spun wicker light shades hang over the long bar in a contemporary space with polished concrete floors, dark wood, leather and antique mirrors. The walls are hung with striking Hanz Kemp photographs of Vietnamese scooter riders laden with provisions and pinion passengers.

Saba's drinks selection is extensive with over 20 wines by the glass, a good range of premium spirits and Asian beers such as Tiger and Singha. The cocktail menu features reassuring classics such as Old Fashioned, Sidecar, Martinez, Aviation and Mai Tai alongside numerous Saba creations, many using sherry and sake.

The food here is excellent and along with signature dishes includes favourites such as pad thai, green chicken curry and tuk tuk soup.
