The incident on Saint James Way in Sidcup, Kent, was reported at 4.30am and is understood to have affected a three-storey building.
The ground floor restaurant was severely damaged but no injuries were reported by the London Fire Brigade, which said that 21 people had left the building before emergency services arrived on the scene.
