I'm so sorry that you had a bad experience, Badgermog. I only went for NY Eve and it was great. Hopefully you just went on an off night? But yeah for an expensive restaurant, you never should have an off night...

I went last year (Shoreditch), ate only raw and thoroughly enjoyed it. Considering that I hate most vegetables (particularly green ones - yuck!) this is high praise indeed.

I didn't think much to their cocktails, but then I am a cocktail snob. It's nice that they've put some effort in (making their own infusions etc), but the 2 I tried just weren't pleasant.

I went to Saf on Saturday so I thought I'd report in here. It was really busy the whole time we were there. They didn’t have a couple of items on the menu but they told us straightaway and had a couple of extra dishes.

We’d both said at the beginning we’d try and order all raw and we did. The drinks were all outstanding. Matthew had a dessert wine at the end which was one of the nicest things we’ve ever drunk and I have already ordered some off the internet. I had a dessert cocktail which had cinnamon brandy, maple syrup, espresso and whipped cream/froth, so it was a cross between a brandy, a dessert and a coffee, and my other cocktail was great too, but I am not a cocktail expert.

The food was hmmm. Neither of the starters were brilliant. I had the cashew cheese with sage pesto. I was really excited to try it but it was a funny texture, a bit like putty.
Matthew’s mushroom ceviche was tiny and there was far more salad than mushrooms. Mains were better – Matthew got the pad thai which was a special and really talked up by the waiter, and it was the best dish of the evening. I had the mushroom croquettes. I loved them when I started eating but by the end they were a bit much. I think there may have been a lot of shiitakes in them and they aren't my favourite thing.

Matthew had a rhubarb cheesecake which I liked OK but he adored.

The waiter asked us if we'd like him to explain each dish and we said yes - I didn't think it was over the top though, just the right amount of info to find out what everything was.

I would go back but wouldn’t rush back.

Bottom line: I want to get drinks at Saf.
