A Chinese restaurant is the last restaurant I'd expect in an airport hotel, however, this one turned out to be a real find. It opened early too (5.30) which was good for us. It is a small but cozy restaurant with booths for peace and quiet but bigger tables were also available. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We... More

Cannot believe this restaurant has been going for 24 years at that hotel. Very friendly, conscientious service with attentive staff. Excellent menu, tasty food served well and a good wine selection. Shame you have to go there at the back end of terminal 4, but certainly if you're staying at the Hilton this is very much worth a visit.

Very good by the standards of most airport hotels. Not so good that you’d make a special journey there. Only open in the evenings. We took the set “Banquet” menu for two, with a selection of starters, followed by hot and sour soup, then three mains courses (prawn, chicken and beef) plus mixed veg and egg fried rice and finally...

Nothing to fault here. Great to find good quality Chinese food in an airport hotel. Food is excellent and the service very attentive and considered. Top marks.

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)

Thank Yeannie
