The best Chinese restaurant in Heathrow airport

Very cosy atmosphere and friendly service. Food is very good but used to be better. Has a popular choice of the usual Chinese dishes as well as a few Thai ones thrown in and also well prepared

Love the crispy duck, but have tried other items and all were good. Good service and prices are not unreasonable for a restaurant in an airport hotel

After many good dinners here over a number of years ,this recent visit was so disappointing . We ordered the set menu for a change,as we were tired and didn't want to trawl through the extensive a la carte menu. The waiter said, the "lazy menu" and that proved to be a portent . It proved to be the poorest... More

We were staying overnight before an early flight to LA and had little choice other than to dine here as the alternative Italian option was full with passengers from a cancelled flight. Ordered spring rolls, crispy chilli beef, Malaysian beef satay and egg fried rice. All were delicious - especially the crispy beef. We were sat on the corner booth... More

What a lively surprise. I wanted to go out for Indian but it was an hour drive each way to where I wanted to go. My wife talked me into staying at the hotel and trying this place. Boy am I glad we did. I had the hot and sour soup to start. It was one of the best I... More

This has got to be some of the very best Chinese food that I have ever eaten outside of the far east. A starter of vegetable spring rolls, followed by crispy beef, chicken with cashew nuts and prawns with bamboo shoots. Also some good noodles. All washed down with a bottle of wine, was a great way to spend an... More

This Resturant is within the Hilton Hotel at T4, Heathrow airport. The food is amazing! It's probably the best Chinese food I've had. We only had four dishes and some spring rolls, but it was all presented beautifully, it was hot and really tasty. Mmmmmm! The staff were so friendly and willing to chat. The only downside was it was... More

... But this place deserves it. It is tucked away in the most unlikely of places, i.e. the lobby of the Hilton Hotel attached to Heathrow Terminal 4. I ordered seafood broth soup, sea bass braised with coriander and chili, wok-fried Chinese seasonal greens and steamed rice. Each dish was perfectly prepared and presented using proper ingredients, with the underlying... More

Eat here on a recent stay at the Hilton T4 and my wife and I were gobsmacked that there was a restaurant of this quality on site. The atmosphere, service and food were all exceptional. We ordered lots and we ate every crum. Even the usually average mixed starters plate was amazing here. Even though it was busy, there was... More

The food was just what I needed after a long flight, the food served was hot and tasty. Staff were friendly and happy to be serving you. All the food leaving the kitchen looked very nice.
