We have gone for dinner here twice in the last few months. The food was quite delicious and pleased everyone. Sauces are very tasty. My wife had the mushroom tart as an appetizer and steak as entree. She loved both, very flavourful. I had fish both times and they were good, though last time I had monk fish, which was... More

We were the only ones eating outside on a real hot day. It took 20 minutes for us to get our order in. The fish was greasy and my grand daughters chicken fingers were over cooked. once our food did come no one came to check back with us. In fact we had to go inside and even ask for... More

Located in a nondescript bldg at the London airport, Katana cafe has amazing views of the main airport runway, where guests can watch planes as they land and take off. The menu can be described as upscale with an inventive flare featuring fresh ingredients. For starters I ordered the mushroom tart, excellent and filling, then the red snapper with fresh... More

My partner and I went for a rare night out based on recommendations of friends. He ordered the Artisan Cheese tray which had no Artisan Cheese on it. The mains were delicious but higher priced than we expected based on portion size.

My wife and I were here for our anniversary. She has been there for lunch but this was our first dinner. Service was great, food was incredible and the amaretto cheese cake was superb.

We took our in-laws out for breakfast, at one of our favourite spots, the Katana Kafe. It's in a great (and little known) location, looking out onto the runways of the London, (Ontario) International Airport. This visit we arrived 15 minutes after it opened, and maybe the kitchen wasn't fully up and running, but it took just over 30 minutes... More

Good food -- great location & atmosphere. Very cook watching the planes come in and go out, especially during the summer months on the Patio. Be sure to make a reservation for lunch, as its not a large place, and fills up most days.

This was an unexpected delight! I travel extensively and routinely eat in restaurants around the world. The meal we had was easily on par with the best that I have experienced. I would highly recommend Kahana to friends and business colleagues without reservation! Marvelous food with great flavours!

A little more awkward to find but this is a restaurant with character. Small venue with a unique view. Would recommend reservations to avoid disappointment. Food is very well prepared and presentation is great. Staff is friendly and helpful. We went as a group of four and not one of us was disappointed! Would certainly consider going again.

Fantastic place to go for lunch, seems to be very popular so make a reservation so you are not disappointed if you just want to show up. Specials are awesome and the service is fast and friendly ..... The Thai soup is delicious ......
