The sprinkler and alarm were activated immediately and it was put out swiftly.
But Dartford watch manager Vince Lewis said the restaurant may not open today because of water damage.
He said : "Thankfully the sprinklers did their job  and released a lot of water quickly, otherwise it could have been a lot worse and harder to deal with."
Crews from Dartford, Thames-side and Swanscombe attended.
