“Fast service, good for kids”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

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. the large beef hot dog and chips on the kids menu. I though the adult burger could have been a little more meaty so I should have maybe stuck to my usual stir fry or salad. Overall I thin they provide reasonable prices by airport standards.

“Great Lunch in a Huge Airport”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

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 small Brit beer that matched the lunch perfectly. I wish all airports had such a good choice for lunch or a snack.

“Terminal 5 Giraffe - A good place for breakfast between flights”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

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 not approve of this very tasty sandwich.

“Giraffe Heathrow terminal 5”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

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 the portion size in relation to the cost.
