Went for a drink here for the second time last night and just can’t fault it. Couldn’t help but stay for dinner again watching the yummy food come out. The customer service is perfectly pitched, knowing when to be attentive and loved the hilarious banter...More

We’ve eaten at Firefly a few times and find the food to be really delicious. The portion sizes are good and it’s really tasty and so pretty reasonably priced. Good service and great wine selection too. Definitely recommended.

Choice of tables or comfy sofas, good drinks list and really, really good Thai food (pork-free too!) Nice selection of wines though the Primitivo could be better. We had a bottle £22 plus two courses for three people 65 quid. Beat that for delicious food...More

Really nice bar with friendly staff and chilled atmosphere. Thai food is awesome and range of drinks available is great - lovely wines and quality ales. One of my favourite places to go in Balham.

I remember it being busy but not unacceptably so. Being a pensioner myself doesn't stop one's capacity to get out and have fun.
