Plane Food is a superb stop to grab a nice bite and a good wine prior to your flight. The picnics are also very nice -- well packaged and presented, great flavour. A little pricey and the atmosphere is somewhat uncomfortable.

We always go and eat here if we are in terminal 5. We get a really good tasty meal before we fly. They also provide a packed meal to take on the plane if you wish. Service always very good. Staff most efficient and polite. Great place to wait for your plane. Can't really fault it.

I was traveling on a work trip on the weekend and transiting via London Heathrow Terminal 5. I wanted a crisp salad before a 10-hour flight and the Caesar salad with chicken was great. The freshly baked rolls were warm and comforting. My colleague enjoyed his burger and we both got ourselves a side of fries (these are not served... More

I had a 3 hour layover at Londons Heathrow Without an airline boardroom membership, I decided to kill an hour at Gordon's upscale airport restaurant. I was quickly seated. Served quickly and politely. I enjoyed lentil soup, the short rib burger, chips and a couple beers. The food, although modest on portions size and slightly expensive was very good. I... More

If this is the standard of Gordon Ramsay's food elsewhere then I never want to go to a Gordon Ramsay restaurant. He should be ashamed to have his name associated with this very poor restaurant. I am surprised and upset at how poor this restauarant was.

We specifically asked the Maitre-D if it would be possible to eat in an hour since that was the time we had until we had to show at our gate and they assured it should not be a problem. Unfortunately, it took over half an hour to get the first course which made it impossible to enjoy the 2nd course... More

Service was unobtrusive, but efficient. Ran into Wallace Shawn (Vizinni, the Sicilian, from the Princess Bride, among many other memorable roles), and he was treated ... just like us. The food was amazing, selection was good. We had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and a fruit dish, the salmon was excellent, the scrambled eggs were perfect, and the fruit was... More

After reading other reviews. Against my better judgement. We decided to give this a go. ..forget it. Simple order two steaks one with chips and one with salad. The waiter pointed to the menu. No mixed salad on there. After much debate he agreed to do the mixed salad. Which appeared with just lettuce. The two steaks turned up.one was... More

Obviously, being in the T5 departures lounge as it is, this is a place for a bite when you are "passing through". Some nice thoughts. An express 2 and 3 course meal with associated length of time to eat. Plane picnics. Nice ideas though clearly also clever marketing. I orders the short rib burger and that is exactly what I...
