Island Restaurant

About Island Restaurant

It's sort of land-locked, is Island restaurant. You see, it's part of Holiday Inn Brentford Lock, a relatively new hotel on the banks of the Grand Union Canal in fast-emerging Brentford Lock. A modern restaurant leading off from a waterfront lounge, Island restaurant looks suitably smart and informal with its colourful mixture of chunky leather chairs, linen-free pale-wood tables and polished wood floors. The idea is for the predominantly corporate diners to feel at home; something the black-clad staff do their best to help with. The food helps too. Pan-Asian bestsellers include a sliced roast duck salad with a red currant sauce starter, tandoori curry, and tower roast chicken - layers of crispy white meat on a bed of crispy veg. The top tables are at the back of the restaurant, near the windows.
