Plane Food opened in Heathrow Terminal 5 in 2008, and provides diners with a delicious array of dishes ranging from Asian inspired noodles to burgers and healthy breakfasts. The innovative menu includes highlights like Plane Food's classic short rib beef burger and butter chicken curry, as well small plates like salmon teriyaki skewers and chicken wings with tamarind sauce.

Gordon Ramsay Plane Food offers travellers a unique dining experience before their onward journey out of London, and guests without the time to dine in the restaurant can take our culinary delights onboard with them, with Plane Food's 'To Go' option, a takeaway offering ensuring that those short of time can still enjoy a Gordon Ramsay dining experience 40,000 feet in the air.

If you're looking for somewhere to wait for your departure, why not take a seat at the Plane Food bar, with views over the tarmac and a great cocktail list.

The story of Plane Food

The restaurant changed the face of airport dining and upon opening was the only full service dining restaurant at Heathrow. It is also Gordon Ramsay’s first restaurant at an airport.

Gordon Ramsay said: “Plane Food has been setting the standard for airport dining since we opened at Heathrow Terminal 5 in 2008. Since day one, it's brought together the Group’s passion for high quality food, amazing flavours and service.

I'm excited for travellers of all ages to experience the new, modern Plane Food that has been inspired by influences from all around the globe, and don't be surprised to see me tucking into the glorious butter chicken before my next flight!”

Guests can experience high quality food and service in a stunning, digitally-focused restaurant.
