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.

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.

Great Thai food, especially the red Thai curry, friendly staff, clean bathrooms and a very relaxed atmosphere. Firefly is a cross between a pub, bar and restaurant. It also has outside seating for those who smoke. Some dogs are allowed as long as they are...More
