My husband and I, both vegans, went out of our way to visit this restaurant at the London Whole Foods and looked forward to a nice upscale vegan meal. If this is one of London's best vegan restaurants, as it had been touted, I feel sorry for Londoners. The food was overpriced and bland. One should not need to use... More

From the moment I walked through the door the atmosphere was engaging. Saf manages to be both vibrant and chilled, elegant yet comfortable! Definitely a place I could relax and enjoy a great evening with friends. The staff are engaging and encouraging, taking the time to suggest courses or cocktails and the choices are interesting indeed. As a hardened meat... More

Im not sure what everyones talking about I had a great dining experience. Every bite was something so new to the palate. Its fine cuisine its not suposed to be big pub portions. Yes the service wasn't as fast as pub food but who cares I saw the chef out in the garden picking out some of the edible flowers... More

We visited the Shoreditch restaurant as a couple on a Friday night with a prior reservation. It is a tad on the expensive side however you cannot ignore the quality and obvious preparation and dedication that goes into each dish. Service The guys behind the bar were exceptionally friendly and welcoming and mixed a mean cocktail. All other staff were... More

I visited Saf Shoreditch and loved every minute of it, the restaurant is beautifull and the service was excellent, so relaxed a great atmosphere for eating. The presentation of the food was outstanding and the flavour reflected this. THE COCKAILS ARE AMAZING. All the staff seemed to really enjoy working together and that is great for a restaurant like this.... More

We were looking forward to visiting Saf again but were very disappointed. Service is extremely slow, portions are tiny for the expensive prices you pay and the menu and food are nowhere near as good as they once were. Not sure we'd go again.

In a crowded market restaurants need to stand out, to offer something special or valuable. Being a vegan restaurant is probably enough provided your food is good, bat at Saf they try to go further. The whole place tells you it's trying to be a Michelin restaurant, but it really is never going to achieve that status. We were met... More

I went to Saf on Saturday night with a large group, for a friend's birthday. First impressions were good - the room is lovely, and felt very high end, good finishes lighting etc. We were seated for about 30 minutes before we were asked if we wanted to order drinks - and that was after was flagged down the waitress....

I had heard so much about Saf, that I was looking forward to the experience. The service was extremely slow despite our reservation. The food was good but not the best I have eaten. Portions are small, therefore not such good value for money.

This is a friendly restaurant with helpful staff and a great room. The food is tasty and zingy although the portions are on the small side. Attentive staff were let down by a slow kitchen. And this was with only 5 other tables occupied. I'd go back again, but I would put a bit more pressure on the kitchen next... More
