Such a shame that a good concept is spoilt by basically poor cooking. Aubergine was undercooked, flavourless and topped with large unseeded chilli rings. Both if us had curry. Mine had all the tofu, my partners all the pineapple. Disappointing. Small touches like photocopied menus being dirty and tatty do not give good impression.

My first time in a vegan restaurant and I must say that I'm impressed. From the start the service was great, very attentive and whenever I asked for something they didn't have a problem with it. My aloe vera juice was very good, and my morrocan shawarma Wrap was very tasty. The wrap came with a salad and coleslaw and I must say that I had to take the other half of my wrap to take away because I was very much satisfied. This is to show that the value you pay is excellent when it comes to how much you're getting- very pleased! Not all healthy food costs more than junk food ;) And to end my visit to Saf, I had the lime mousse tart which was delicious, my first raw dessert did not disappoint me at all! Overall I'm pretty pleased with the service and the food, definitely going back to try something else.

Restaurant is above Whole Foods and not enclosed so somewhat noisy.
Food is excellent. ..buckwheat noodles were very delicious as was the Fighter juice with carrot and ginger.
Service for us was not an issue.

We went back to SAF at their Kensington location. This time, we really enjoyed our food. We tried the wraps which were excellent and the "cheese" made of cashew nuts. The service was friendly and efficient. A very good experience.

My partner is a duly committed raw vegan who has dragged me to Saf for years (starting back when they had the restaurant off Old St). We both have to concede that management have really let the High St Kensington shop really decline. The food and cocktails still have their moments of brilliance but the service is consistently a disaster.
We go back as it is unique in what it offers but it rarely lives up to the hype sadly. Hopefully they will get their act together
