We very much enjoyed a meal for 8 of us before a flight the next day. The food is excellent, authentic asian cuisine. The usual favourites of crispy duck, gyozo dumplings, thai crab cakes, ribs, thai green curries etc are all on the menu.
If you move away from what looks like a very reasonable set menu at £38 you can start getting into toppy territory if you go a la carte are hungry and over order!! Service was excellent except for the waiter tipping soy sauce all over my clean trousers, for which i received a deep apology and a beer, but no dry cleaning offer. These things happen.
all in all an excellent meal if a tiny bit on the expensive side

We love this restaurant and when staying over at the airport we always head over to the Oriental. The food is always fantastic, and there is such a lot of choice, even when staying at South Terminal we would get ourselves over to the North Terminal to ensure a wonderful meal and a great start to a holiday.

Do not eat here! Complete waste of money and time. Nothing to tantalise your tastebuds.

Very rude staff with low standards. As vegetarians they were not accommodating at all.

Serving Coke which was flat and having returned the product. We were offered another from a newly opened 1.75l Coke bottle. As they don't know I work from Coca Cola, they were shocked to hear my remarks about their quality. Being in the Sofitel hotel you would think they would raise their game. Then they said they can give us a 330ml Coke from a glass bottle but with an additional surcharge.... seriously is that normal?!?!?!?!

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME HERE!

Now called Vanda's, this Oriental restaurant is superb. Always go for an evening meal here when stopping at the Sofitel Hotel! Never had a dissapointing meal, always hot, very tasty and looks good on the plate!

One of the best restaurants around and highly recommended!

This is a nice restaurant in the Sofitel Hotel. The food was exceptionally good with nice size portions (not too much, but not too little either). Waiting staff attentive and friendly. The soft shell crab is a must for a starter. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food. I Would visit again if stay at the hotel in the future.
