While you may not be able to experience the flaming brilliance of Fireroom at home, you can still enjoy their one-of-a-kind dishes in lockdown. Their Bedfordview branch is offering the full Fireroom menu for delivery, including their signature sushi, poke bowls, dim sum, pizzas, pastas and an assortment of fine wines! Fireroom has opted to deliver using their own staff rather than employ a third party service. This not only keeps their staff in a job, but ensures the strictest hygiene standards are kept from their kitchen to your doorstep. Orders will be open between 11:30 - 17:00 daily, so make sure to place yours in good time.
