A little more awkward to find but this is a restaurant with character. Small venue with a unique view. Would recommend reservations to avoid disappointment. Food is very well prepared and presentation is great. Staff is friendly and helpful. We went as a group of four and not one of us was disappointed! Would certainly consider going again.

Fantastic place to go for lunch, seems to be very popular so make a reservation so you are not disappointed if you just want to show up. Specials are awesome and the service is fast and friendly ..... The Thai soup is delicious ......

Nestled away and hidden near the London Intl Airport this restaurant is by far one of the most pleasant places to relax and enjoy excellent food with the most polite staff I've had the pleasure to be served by. The atmosphere is truly enjoyable with such a intimate setting. Love this place and I would recommend it to anyone. I... More

We have a cottage in the area, so we go to the Katana Kafe about once a month. We enjoy an occasional weekend breakfast, some summer lunches on the patio next to the London Airport landing strips, and some beautiful classy dinners there when entertaining company. Friendly service, and classy air travel inspired décor. Great to be able to have... More

The Katana Kafe is at the London Airport. The aircraft go by your window after they've landed, on their way to the terminal. The restaurant itself is decorated with an aircraft motif, and the whole place is dedicated to pilots and their aircraft. And to great food. Order anything here and you'll enjoy it. Try the Cuban sandwich. Or maybe... More

went there a few weeks ago the food was good but a little over priced, service was very slow it is under staff(management issue) nice view of airport runway if that is what you like. Yes I would go again Sunday seems to be the less expensive menu

Have been here a few times while in town. Food is always fantastic, portion are perfect and the price is quite reasonable. Always the same pleasant lady, serving on her own, but never seems harried or rushed, despite the large number of diners.

Others In our party had chicken and strip loin which were good. I ordered seafood risotto. Risotto was good, can't say the same for seafood. Didn't find any crab, calamari was so tough, felt like rubber. Mussels may have been good but they were buried in puddle of sauce that tasted and looked like cheese wiz. Bad after taste as... More
