In the past 20 years I have spent several nights at major airport hotels, sometimes by choice and sometimes not. Most are not known for their cuisine, but Zen Oriental at Terminal 4 London Heathrow is amazing. For starters, the decor is consistent with an upscale bistro decor such as one might find in Georgetown. The service is very attentive... More

Last night we stayed at the Hilton Terminal 4 Heathrow and tried the Zen Oriental restaurant. Wow! What fantastic food and service. My husband and I both thought it was the best we had ever eaten. The Manager and staff are also due some praise as they were extremely friendly and professional. Well done to the whole team.

What a brilliant start to a holiday...we stayed at The Hilton the night before we flew to New York and ate at Zen. This was some of the most delicious Chinese good I've had. The soft shell crab and the noodles were excellent. The potstickers and the sliced chicken in black bean sauce were also fantastic. The wine we chose... More

The food was good, although the portions were a bit small for the price. I guess it goes with a Hilton Hotel inside an airport. We enjoyed our dinner and enjoyed even more the convenience of having the restaurant so close to where we were staying.

One of the great things about Chinese restaurants is they get the sociable round table thing. This place was no exception. Its more common for hotels to have really good restaurants inside but one on an airport......I couldn't have been more wrong. We had a great meal, there was plenty of food with the Hilton buffet (I think) and plenty... More

Excellent menu, great combination and swift service. Needs a slightly more extensive wine list, especially new world

The Restaurant is inside the Hilton at Termina 4. I went there during a stay at the Hilton Hotel. The Staff is very friendly and the food is really good. I had the scallops in a spicy sauce and fried rice with shrimps and pork. As a starter i had 4 pieces of Dim Sum. The quality is really good... More

We ordered a wide variety of dishes, and whilst some of them were tasty, I was quite shocked by how 'off' the others were (e.g. singapore noodles included some indian spices, chilly pepper squid was tasteless and very soggy). On the other hand, service was quite good. You may have to eat here if you're staying at the hotel, but... More

My companion and I enjoyed a lovely dinner on one evening and then and we were delighted with the service as well as the great quality of food served for a large group on the following evening.

Excellent selection on the menu, excellent food, excellent service and wine list. They can even prepare things not on the menu upon request in advance. Highly recommended.
