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.

On an impromptu jaunt for dinner, The Old FireStation here in Brentford proved to be a good option, certainly the best in the locale... From fab. cocktails in the Bar downstairs through to the excellent service in the restaurant, great stuff !

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

Excellent food, pleasant surroundings. The waitress was excellent, very friendly, especially helpful with the children. Would love to go again. Very convenient if you're staying at the nearby Premier Inn.

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
