Went with my wife and our best friends for supper during London-liscous, and our expectations were more then fulfilled from what was our first visit to Katana. Our server (Heather I believe) was very friendly, funny and outgoing. Our food was perfectly timed between courses, with each course tasting wonderful and being plated with simple (but beautiful) bistro flair. Mussels... More

My husband and I tried Katana during Londonlicious. The service was delightful, portions were generous, food was superb. Started with flavourful PEI mussels and delicious Caesar salad, then had perfectly seasoned and grilled ribeye steaks. Even the frites were incredibly tasty. We were too full for dessert, so our server suggested we take it home. Can't wait to try the... More

London's best kept secret ~ this little gem is hidden near the airport and not an obvious find, but is consistently the BEST in London. Make sure you call ahead for lunchtime reservations. Watch the airport traffic on a nice day ~ enjoy the BEST Caesar Salad in the world!

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.
