Nothing wrong with the service, but the food is really so and so. Had the sirloin steak and it was average. And gluten-free seemed to be a swear word here. Ordered blue-cheese sauce and got bernaise sauce. The waiter complained to the chef and I...More

Excellent service and very good quality food. The grilled lamb tasted superb and steak was delicious. It was quiet in the restaurant but we didn’t feel this was a problem. Good choice of food and drinks very resonably priced.

This is a hidden gem in Brentford. Hard to spot that there is a restaurant upstairs - and a really good one. Excellent quality, very authentic Persian food. Pity that it is always so empty, eating there can be a little bit lonely. But food,...More

The restaurant was quiet and cold, it was a Tuesday evening after a bank holiday weekend. We ordered drinks a bowl of olives and two mains which were lamb based. The meals were excellent and the restaurant deserves to be busier.

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.
