We wanted to grab something to eat before our flight. Giraffe are promoting that they aim to serve you your food within 15 mins... After waiting 1/2 hour for our burger we questioned this 15 mins especially as other people were being served before us! Our waitress Alicia was brilliant - very friendly and apologetic. The problem was coming from... More

Food was okay, but smaller potions than I would have expected for the price. But the service? The serving staff are more interesting in engaging with their co-workers than with customers. It was a shame I had to interrupt their busy conversations and socialising to order food and pay the bill!!

I had breakfast a month ago with my wife. We were looking forward to a traditional British breakfast with eggs, bangers, tomatoes and potatoes. Couldn't find it on the menu unless you ordered each item "à la carte" which would have cost you a mint! We settled for mediocre scrambled eggs that came with out of the can baked beans... More

this is a good airport food stop, they understand we have a flight to catch. Stopped in for breakfast on a Sunday morning and they were busy. I was sat quickly, waited on quickly, and the food is good. The waitress even was understanding when I made an error with the credit card machine. Overall the atmosphere is nice and... More

The burger was gray and had the texture of a piece of rubber. It was completely tasteless and unseasoned, served on a stale bun. A smear of BBQ sauce cost an extra $2.50. Whoever is responsible for this place should be ashamed of him/herself. No restaurant - including an airport restaurant - should serve disgusting food like this. Stay away.

I come here several times a months for work and always come back to this place as it has so much more atmosphere than any other bar. Staff is foreign and friendly withou exceptions. Music is nice and not too loud. Dishes are interesting and nutritious and there is plenty of choice for any time of the day. Service is... More

"Giraffe" could be re-named "Cattle" and probably realize a little more truth in advertising. The wait staff was pleasant enough but seemed to suffer from a lack of training. (Three table in our vicinity had to request the check more than once - a little distressing when itineraries demand punctuality in an airport.) No refills were offered on our drinks...... More

Ate here prior to boarding a flight where no food would be served. Unfortunately LHR T1 is like my local Bournemouth regional airport so little choice in terms of shops or restaurants. We shared a starter, had 2 burger mains and 2 drinks and the bill was between GBP 30 - 40. I felt robbed for what was a bad... More

Wide variety on the menu. Large portions on my table and the tables I observed around me. Not gourmet food, but better than most in airport terminals. Would be my choice for my next Terminal 5 layover. (If I had time after passing the abominably slow security lines at this airport).
