Brentford Day Guide
When I first moved to London, I knew exactly one person, had no friends or family here and I didn’t know where to eat! The first thing everyone needs to do when they move to a new place is meet people. That’s the hard part. The second hardest part is knowing where to eat. Eating out in a new city can be an adventure, but not always an enjoyable one. It can be difficult getting the telephone number of best food delivery restaurants or knowing exactly what type of cuisine they might serve (I’m quite fussy with food).
So I’ve decided to put together an article on restaurants, pubs and cafes in Brentford that are worth a visit when you find yourself in need of, Brentford (brentford.org.uk). I've got some great news! From here on out I'm going to be keeping a list of all the restaurants, cafes and bars I think are worth trying out in Brentford. So from brunch spots, to Indian restaurants, Middle Eastern restaurants, local delis and bars, you name it here's a place to eat or drink it.
A beautiful town, and a newbie to the world of hipster cafes. Brentford is full of sights, sounds and smells. With pubs aplenty, there is always something to do; bars and clubs never far away and some excellent music venues the perfect place for everyone to have a great night out. Here in Brentford you can eat at almost every type of food. Whether you are a fan of Chinese, Italian, Indian or American food, there is no shortage of it, lots of choices.
Brentford has two areas that are well-known for their restaurants Kew Bridge and Brentford High Street. A London borough side of the River Thames southwest of Charing Cross is a rather wealthy suburb which is also well known for its restaurants and bars. We at Flavours Of Brentford give you directions to these best restaurants and bars that will excite your taste buds as well. Here are some tourist attractions in Brentford that you can visit.
The wife and I were needing a great meal while in New York. We found Kew grill on yelp and went in it was just walking distance away from our hotel. We chose the seabass for her and I had the sirloin and we both could not have been happier with our choices. We shared the sides which we couldn't finish because we wanted to save room for desert. Manager Mike is an awesome dude, really took care of us.
He asked us both what kind of drinks we wanted without us even asking him. Excellent service and excellent food. The Kew Grill provided the setting for my wife’s birthday lunch with our friends. We were greeted courteously by the maître d, who assigned us to a table in a convenient quiet corner with a view of the main dining room. He was attentive without being obtrusive. Selections from the ample a la carte menu were given time, and my wife found her starter of crab and lemongrass soup to be an explosion of flavour in her mouth.
So much so that she was debating about not having anything else. Traveled with TC (Travel Counsellors),,Booked a table on the terrace of this gorgeous restaurant. Fantastic service, the Terrace is outstanding, views breathtaking. Food was excellent,good selection of wines. Definitely go back. Dinner Saturday night at the Kew Grill. Bit busy but service was good, food delicious and wine delicious. can you tell I enjoyed my dinner? High end price on the food but worth every penny in my opinion.
I have never been to Brittany but found this restaurant enchanting and thoroughly enjoyable. It is like walking into a kitsch French movie. I felt quite transported tried to order in French but was pointed in the direction of the English menu. The menu is pretty well held together by crepes and all things Breton including the desert and they do it very well. The sorbets were as good (and strong) as those in Brittany itself.
We visited and stayed here last week. We were with a group of families with children. The food is excellent although portions could be larger. We were staying in another hotel nearby and thought we would just eat there but we were so glad we went to Chez Lindsay instead. The staff were friendly and helpful, (although it is a shame they do not speak any English). This place is charming and deserves support. Chez Lindsay is a different experience from the usual restaurant.
It's better. The owner, Lindsay Doran, and her son Jordan give you the kind of service that puts you at ease from the moment you walk in. You feel instantly relaxed in their company, surrounded by a French countryside/small town cottage style decor that makes an evening meal with children very pleasant indeed. We took our daughters to Chez Lindsay for an early evening meal. The food is Breton perfect for family eating. The service is pitched just right attentive without being invasive.
The girls felt grown-up but spoiled. They loved the crepes and sorbets. We enjoyed fish and crepes suzette. Well worth a visit if you are bored with corporate consistency. They say that all good things come to an end, sadly Chez Lindsay is no more. The end came at lunchtime today (March 18) when we arrived and were told that this was the last day. It's a sad day for Richmond as Chez Lindsay was a place to take kids, posh enough for adults but not sacrificing comfort or enjoyment.
We will miss you. Well worth the wait every table, even the outside tables was full. The food was fresh and tasty and beautifully presented. My husband had some sort of sea fish my son had drumsticks, both were delicious and not overly done or greasy. We will be coming back soon. I have used this establishment on and off for 40 years. Always good food and wine,considerable attention to detail by the staff in looking after us.
I love Mama Lan's and my wife insisted on dining there for her birthday. We were given a nice table upstairs in the restaurant and had delicious food served to us at a good pace with excellent service all round. The food was great, I'd challenge criticism of the chicken dishes as bland they were delicious to me and I've been told that traditionally Chinese food does not overload the taste buds with spices etc.
The food was superb. We were a little disappointed that the menu did not indicate that fish could be cooked on request to suit vegetarian tastes there were only two non-fish main courses, and none of the starters from which you could make up a meal. However, we asked for fresh fish to be cooked in olive oil and herbs, and it was so delicious (and plentiful) that this difficulty did not spoil the evening.
We started with the chilli con carne with rice, which was superb and the chips were also very nice. We both had steak for our main course, I had the rump and my husband had a sirloin (can't remember the names!) both were done to perfection. I asked for my Medium rare but didnt get quite what I wanted, but I wasnt complaining. The mustard sauce wasnt too overpowering either, although I usually take it off anyway.
We ordered a side order of onion rings as well. They came very nicely presented and looked edible! Actually they tasted great, so much so that I was disappointed when my husband took one off my plate. The building is situated on the main road through Acton town centre, opposite the new and improved "Face" bar. We had a table next to the window and was greeted by one of the friendly waitresses all of them were happy to chat to us.
We were also given a clean table-cloth, no tissue underneath. The waitress gave me full attention and I explained my food allergies, which she did acknowledge however, when my food arrived, it had no mention of any kind that it may contain egg or duck meat. I was a guest of Four In Hand and it is the perfect setting for a night out with friends or family. In short, this place has got the lot! As we entered there were some very nice touches such as candles throughout, low level lighting & 70's rock playing in the background.
My starter, a Masala Dosa was great crispy outside and soft inside just as I like it. It came with a nice spicy sambar which complemented the lighter taste of the dosa. The other starter of fish fingers and chips were smallish portions but satisfying nonetheless. My Rice & Curry main course was Chicken Jalfrezi which was freshly cooked to order and both my partner and I enjoyed this spicy dish thoroughly. The rice portion was generous and the curry tasted very fresh too.
In fact the menu in general was very appetising with plenty of choice. One of our party tried mussels for starters and prawns for main course which she thoroughly enjoyed commenting on how fresh they were. My choice was a goat curry, which had nice tender pieces of meat cooked in a rich and full flavoured sauce. My only complaint was that they were quite garnished with long bits of onion which was not what I ordered and took up some room on my plate.
I am told it is the owner’s wife who cooks the food in her home kitchen every day; certainly I would not have known otherwise. I would definitely recommend it to any group whether Indian or not, especially if BYOB is allowed there too, even though £1 per person corkage is low for London this place has much better than average quality food. The service was warm & welcoming from the moment we arrived. Brentford is the place of city, which is located in United Kingdom.
