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.

26th January 2017-Dinner. We had to book - it gets busy. Prompt and professional service. Food mainly really good. Starters: crispy squid with chilli and mayo, and butterfly prawns with sweet chilli sauce - both delicious. Mains: Lemon chicken - ok, chicken rather dry; and XO Prawn - delicious. Egg rice decent, as were the extra veg we ordered. With... More

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

We booked a table for 6:30 but went in at 6 because we wanted an early night prior to early departure. Good welcome, nice table pretty good service and excellent food. Not cheap but a memorable meal. I happily recommend this restaurant which is branded Vanda's. Well almost certainly return. Recommended

We have been to this restaurant many times over the years and seen a few changes since the days of Ken Hom. The new refurbishment of Vanda gives a more sophisticated ambiance and the food was very good and far less bland than it has been on some previous occasions. We ordered the Tasting Board which allows three main choices... More

Had lunch here, we were one of the two occupied tables and to start off the waiter was pretty unkeen on us disturbing his quiet service but seemed to perk up once he realised we don't do rude. Quite a good selection on offer with with a small taster menu and à la carte. There is also a set menu... More

Another great meal here. We booked a table for 7.30 pm because it can get quite busy. Service is efficient. Lots of options to choose from on the menu. Good quality tasty oriental dishes. Good wine list at reasonable prices. Will always eat here when we stay at the Sofitel.

Thought the menu looked good but was disappointed with the food. Sent the first dish back as was inedible. Very average spring rolls and could cook noodles better myself.
