We went to New Saffrani for my girlfriends birthday dinner, we had purchased KGB vouchers. To arrange a booking we rang them and made them aware we had vouchers and booked a time slot on the same day. The service was excellent and the food is amazing, we had such good fun laughing and enjoying our meal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant when you come to Edinburgh.

I purchased a voucher from KGB. I phoned up the restaurant three weeks in advance to enable me to book a table on a Saturday night at a decent time and stated I had a voucher. My boyfriend and I turned up on the correct day and time of booking. There were a few empty tables I noticed when we walked in so were wondering which table would be ours as the restaurant is quite small and very warm. I was greeted by the Manager and was told that no booking had been entered under my name. I was very confused and embarrassed as when I argued my case, I was practically accused of lying about making the booking. I was told that I could get a table but would not be allowed to use my voucher???? So basically they wanted me to pay full price for a meal, that I had already purchased through a voucher. I was not accepting of this. I feel I was treated terribly and would never try this restaurant again or recommend it to anyone!
