Very average food, but passable if you want something more substantial than Pret, especially in Heathrow T1 where options are very limited. Offers a whole range of food choices from Asian to Mexican and everything in between, from the looks of it the typical Giraffe menu. On the plus side the service was great, the whole team were polite and... More

Even though this restaurant often has queues they move very quickly to get people seated and served. Staff are friendly and efficient and as with previous visits I never felt worried about having to rush before my flight. The little plastic giraffes they give out to kids seem to be well received. The food comes in good sized portions e.g.... More

With an hour and a half until our flight back to the US my wife and I had a simple lunch at Giraffe in Terminal 1 of Heathrow. We split a very good chicken and avocado sandwich with a side of cole slaw. The slaw was dressed with honey mustard and cider vinegar -- a wonderful combination! I had a... More

When I'm between flights I frequently have breakfast at the Giraffe. This restaurant, though a bit noisy at times, features friendly, quick service, and one of my favourite guilty indulgences, "The Brekkie Burger" consisting of a burger, cheese, bacon, sausage, a fried egg, and tomato and lettuce on a bun and accompanied by very good chips. My cardiologist would definitely... More

Food quality is ok, portions are small for the price of a food chain. Service is ok as well. Minimum service possible as place always busy. Staff is polite. Had the scrambled eggs on toast with salmon and cherry tomatoes. Very small portion. Bread was poorly toasted and only 2 cherry tomatoes. Taste was good and cooked fine. Disappointed with... More

We stopped in to have some appetizers prior to a flight...it wasn't cheap but then everything in London costs a fortune these days! My husband had some chips which he said were very good, I had pot stickers (there were only 5) and the waiter talked me into a side salad which was rather good as he said the five... More

This place is in Heathrow terminal 5 that put obvious pressure on the business along with responsibilities. Overall, good services and very nice breakfast. Impressed with selection of smoothies. Waiters can be quick bringing bills though.

The breakfast was well cooked, large and delivered promptly. Our server friendly and efficient, we did have a wait as it opened slightly late but all was good in the end. Recommended
