Whenever I land at Heathrow Airport outside of London, England, I try really hard to figure a way to eat at Zen restaurant in the lobby of the Hilton at Terminal 4. The service is amazingly attentive without being cloying and the food always perfectly cooked. It's not as inexpensive as many Chinese restaurants but it's very fair....a good value.... More

I really enjoyed my meal here. I was looking for some food having just checked in to the hotel on the eve of a long flight. The restaurant was well presented and the service good. The food was excellent and a cut above the Chinese food I have eaten recently locally. It was a good start to my trip.

Nice restaurant, unfortunately I got the last free table, not in the best position. The food is very good, and the service is good too. Little bit overpriced, but ok for the quality you have

My wife and I had not booked, sadly the restaurant was full but the menu encouraged us to wait. Within a short time a table was available, not ideal in the middle of the room, but soon after the staff took the initiative in moving us to a corner booth.. Genuine dim sum, an excellent crispy beef,all dishes of the... More

The two standouts here is the service - the staff are very welcoming, attentive and quick, the food is also of a excellent standard especially when you consider this is a hotel restaurant, it certainly out trumps most Asian restaurants I've been to previously anywhere in the world. It is quite pricey, but it's reflected in the overall package you... More

Good spread of appetizers and main courses. Variety for children as well. Taste is average and ingredients fresh. Portions are not big so ask for guidance if order is sufficient. Suited for south Asian palate (if i am allowed to generalize)

I eat here every time I stay at the Terminal 4 Hilton and always look forward to the experience. On this occasion, I was quickly shown to my table and promptly waited upon by friendly staff. I started off with the Thai spare ribs, which were excellent, if not a little messy to eat! I then continued with the Shredded... More

Nice restaurant, food selection is ok but not more than that to Chinese food lovers. Decor and presentation are great, staff is great and good service. Food was testy but very expensive.

When staying overnight at the Hilton Terminal 4 we always look forward to a Chinese meal at Zen, which over the years has been brilliant. As a Saturday night, not too many diners. The menu was the same as always and we initially asked for our Australian Chardonnay to be put in an ice bucket, as normally not cold enough... More
