Should you find yourself at Heathrow with some time on your hands and a pit in your stomach, there are few choices for a sit-down meal, at least at Terminal 5. That said, it's well worth your while to have that meal at Giraffe. It has a huge selection from a world-wide menu, "A Fresh View of the World." We... More

This was a first ever visit to T5 and we settled for here to feed a party of mainly kids and six adults, as the last reviewer said it is more expensive than a Boots meal deal but then it's a much better experience. What really impressed us was that the serving staff asked if we wished to use their... More

More expensive than a Boots meal deal it's true, but it's also usefully cheaper than the run-of-the-mill bars and many other restaurants in T5. Freshly cooked food, acceptable wine and very friendly staff (without being suffocating) make for a pleasant meal. Efficient without rushing you, and speedy with the bill when you need to leave. Recommended.

A very popular restaurant that had a queue waiting to be seated - a good sign! Hadn't to wait too long, staff were so friendly and helpful. My first choice of food was all sold out - so disappointed, but next best was fine!

Had a layover in Heathrow flying from Ottawa to Lisbon. I think we both had salads. Fresh lettuce. Tasted great after the usual AC snack. The service was quick and friendly.

This is the second time this has happened to me with this establishment in T1. I queue for 5 minutes with menu in hand waiting for a table, and then get shown to a table. I know what I want to order. On the table top they have a sheet printed professing to have your order with you in 15... More

Giraffe used to be great. I stopped by for my favourite falafel burger. Awful. Cold chips too. Portion size now tiny and very uninspiring. Tesco own it now and this is very clear. They have ruined it. I won't be back.

I went to the one in Terminal 1 and it was quite disappointing. I had the Giraffe breakfast burger and the buns were cheap and nasty the inside ingredients was alright. However the service was nice, friendly and quick. Restaurant appearance is quite appealing and has a nice atmosphere. If only the food was better the place would have been... More

When you have 40 minutes before your flight boards on a Friday afternoon, what you really need is a healthy bite to eat, served with a smile and no hassle. This was exactly our experience at Giraffe T1 recently. Something for everyone, polite, attentive staff and everything served promptly and with good eye appeal. I had a salad, hubby had... More
