Located at Dataran Jelatek in Setiawangsa, Saba Restaurant exists as Middle Eastern restaurant known for their explicit culinary knowledge in serving Yemeni food. They are quite the specialist at what they do and the proof that their dishes are top-notch lies in the fact that they have been receiving customers from all over, regular and new, since the very day they open.
The restaurant operates in a shop that has two floors and an outdoor seating so patrons could sit wherever they prefer. The restaurant has another branch in Cyberjaya that has enjoyed a similar limelight as this branch in Kuala Lumpur. The interior is well designed to have plenty of natural light and airiness with simple yet comfortable furniture. Saba are known to have throngs of customers during peak hours so the layout is fundamentally designed to ensure Saba is able to hold quite the crowd at any one time.
Putting forth the best of Yemeni cuisine one can expect to find dishes like Mandy Chicken or Lamb, Kabsah Chicken or Lamb, as well as some Western inspired dishes. Saba have been highly praised for their taste and being able to be consistent about it. The dish that seemed to be getting the rave is the Mandy which is essentially either chicken or lamb cooked with a tonne of different spices. The flavourful marriage of spices coupled with the succulent well-cooked meat propelled Saba to great culinary recognition. More often that not, this dish is served on a bed of high quality long grain Arab rice, gravy and condiments in a separate bowl. Other must-try includes Shawarma, Mixed Grill and the Hummus that deserved a special mention.
