Local favourite The Old Fire Station hides three floors of relaxed modern dining and drinking behind its imposing red-brick Victorian exterior in central Brentford. Serving the best fresh, and home-made Persian cuisine, the restaurant has a convivial buzz, with brown leather sofas, a fish tank and a mixology cocktail bar. We cater to vegetarians also.

Nice restaurant with very good starters. We found the main dishes a bit dry as we prefer gravy based dishes rather than just marinaded. Very helpful staff with our children. We were the only diners in on Friday early evening but was quite nice.

Dear neelypeely, Thank you very much for your feedback. Persian mains come in 2 main forms: grilled (marinated) & stews (lots of sauce). The grilled dishes may be accompanied by a side of yoghurt & a dash of lemon, but traditionally they're served without any form of gravy. Our stews, on the other hand, have lots of sauce and pack...

The downside with this restaurant is that you have to go through a very noisy bar to access it. We walked around the building looking for the entrance but discovered you have to go into a crowded bar and up a spiral staircase strung with fairy lights! The night we went there was also a very loud party in the... More

Lovely food, reasonably priced and great service. We were in the area to watch the six Nations rugby, just stumbled across the restaurant and we're freaky glad we did. Recommended!

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
