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

Why in the name of God was I even eating at this place? Could have done Fish and Chips right across the lobby. This place has all the flair and variety of a neighborhood take out or mall kiosk. Service was average, food the same. Don't bother...

Thought we would try this restaurant, nice friendly staff but the table we had, we had to squeeze into seats, once in, not much chance of getting out! Food was good but nothing special, had better food elsewhere, would not eat there again.

This is some of the best upscale Chinese food I have had. The service was great and all of the dishes were tasty. The server gave good recommendations. It is a bit on the pricey side, but it is worth a go if you are in the Heathrow area or staying at the hotel. Walking distance from Terminal 4, not... More

Excellent meal at Zen served by happy smiling staff. The meal we choose consisted of several courses & were the right portion sizes without being too filling. The drinks were a little on the expensive side.

Although this restaurant is extremely convenient and the food pretty good I think the prices are extortionate for what you get. And hot food served on cold plates - really? Admittedly I was there on a Sunday evening but I think the excuse that there were no apples or bananas left to make toffee apples/bananas was a bit feeble for... More
