Chose this restaurant from the internet on our recent visit to London and cannot recommend it enough. The welcome, the food, the drink and the price were all very good but the waitress was excellent explaining the menu and making our meal and evening very enjoyable.

Cycle past here each week and love the outside so wanted to give it a try. The bar on first floor was completely empty (not even a staff member). Went up to the first floor restaurant and greeted by friendly lady. House wine was good. Had mixed starters which were mainly dippy bits. Some bits I loved, some bits not... More

I have been here a few times now, with not one dud meal among them. Food is fresh, tasty and zinging with palate inducing sensations. The service is helpful and friendly, with waiters happy to help. The prices are surprisingly good for this kind of restaurant; and the ambience soothing, informal and friendly. I pass it frequently, and it seems... More

Having recently moved into Brentford I have found many of the bars and restaurant unwelcoming and almost intimidating. Then after giving up hope I was recommended to try the Fire Station.

Loved the starters -- we ordered pretty much everything! for a large group. The main entrees were good, but had excellent Turkish food at Kervans! Nonetheless, I really appreciated the service.
