I arranged a surprise 50th birthday party here for about 60 people. I have nothing but praise for the service and support I received. Irena was both helpful and efficient, she made the function room look perfect, and tailored everything to my needs. Everything ran super smoothly, all the guests thoroughly enjoyed the experience and I completely recommend this venue... More

I attended a football match at Brentford and this restaurant was 5 minutes walk from Griffin Park. The building was a 'cool' renovated fire station and a chilled atmosphere was evident immediately upon entering the bar which occupies the entire ground floor. The bartender was friendly and it was 2 for 1 cocktails so it would be rude not to.... More

I don't know why, but I just really like this place. I've been there as a punter and my company used it for a corporate event last year and it's just a cool place. It's a shame it's not in a busier area, as it deserves to be packed.

We visited during a brief stay at Travelodge Kew Bridge, a 10 minute walk away. We enjoyed a delightful dinner & having never eaten Persian food before we went with the waitress's recommendations, a mixed meze starter followed by a meat platter with rice & salad, Persian ice cream & tea for dessert. Reasonable price, approx £30pp inc drinks &... More

What a delightful find. We enjoyed some very different food, infused with pistachios, pomegranates and herbs. Persian flatbread with tarragon, feta cheese, radishes, spring onions and walnuts made a fantastic pre-starter as recommended by the waitress, followed by an unusual smoky aubergine. Our main courses were mixed kebabs and chicken stew and then baklava and tea finished the meal. Our... More
