My husband and I ate at this restaurant the night we stayed at the Sofitel ready to fly the following day. Wanda is an Asian restaurant located next to the bar in Sofitel. Good varied menu and reasonably priced. Good service but most importantly excellent food. Highly recommend!

Myself and friend wanted a special meal before our Premier Inn stay at Gatwick, North Terminal before a very early flight the following day and chose this restaurant, especially as we love Asian/Oriental type foods. We could not believe our luck to find such a special top notch place. All the foods whether Chinese, Thai or Malaysian etc was incredible.... More

The orange chicken and the crispy beef on lettuce were both amazing. The orange sauce was both tangy and sweet...so delicious!

I can only think that the positive reviews are from people on a high because they are going on a flight the next day . When you stay at this hotel you are trapped, there are 3 places to eat and they are all very average. We ate at this restaurant about 9 months ago and said never again ,... More

Make sure you book as early as you can, as the restaurant gets full very quickly and it will leave you eating after 9 at the best of times. Great service, polite and quick. The menu is drawn from Thia Chinese and Malay so all tastes covered. Dishes around £7/8 starters,£10/12 mains and rice etc £3.50. We chose Thia soup... More

We were stating in the Sofitel Hotel for the Night before early flight to Cancun. The Vanda was chosen for evening meal, and was thoroughly impressed. Being in an Airport Hotel, did not expect too much. However we were really impressed by the Staff & Food, would reccomend to anybody.

This restaurant gets very busy in the early evening so it is worth booking. There is an extensive oriental menu. We had one of the taster menus, very pleasing to the taste buds and enough food without being too much. Worth visiting the airport for even if you are not flying
