About 100 firefighters are battling a blaze that spread through two Notting Hill restaurants this morning.
Emergency services were called to the ground floor and basement sites in Westbourne Grove shortly before 7am this morning. About 16 people had left the property before crews arrived and there were no reports of injuries.
The ground floor of the site is home to Persian restaurant Sadof. It's understood a second restaurant occupied the basement.
Station manager Keith Carmichael said: "This is a difficult fire to fight due to there being a partial ceiling collapse which is reducing access to the seat of the fire.
"Firefighters are working hard to bring the blaze under control. While operations continue we'd ask for people to avoid the area if possible."
