Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 Announces New Restaurant, Spa
July 25, 2011
LONDON - Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 will be home to a renowned chef’s first restaurant outside central London and a luxury spa. Located just over a mile from Heathrow Terminal 5, just off the M25, the hotel is an ideal stopover for business and leisure travellers who want a luxurious and convenient airport hotel.
The hotel will be home to the first restaurant outside central London from chef, Cyrus Todiwala. Mr. Todiwala's Kitchen will offer the exciting and innovative pan-Indian cuisine that Todiwala is known for in his landmark city venue, Café Spice Namasté. The restaurant will also feature a chef’s table offering tasting menus and a chance to watch Chef Cyrus himself at work.
Menu highlights include:
- Papaeta Purr Eedu - A Parsee specialty of cumin and ginger flavoured sliced potato, topped with a whole egg and steamed.
- Dhaansaak – At Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen this dish will bear little resemblance to its namesake served elsewhere, using sliced shin on-the-bone meat and served with brown onion rice, kachumber (an onion salad) and a meat kebab.
- Vindalho De Carne De Porco – A true vindaloo as opposed to the mind-blowingly hot gravy that’s normally served in its place. This dish uses belly and shoulder of organic rare British Lop pork cooked in a rich, hot, slightly sweet and sour gravy.
Chef Cyrus says; “We want to bring the cuisine and culinary culture we’ve cultivated so successfully in East London to the other side of the capital, so that new guests can enjoy the same levels of good food and service for which Café Spice Namasté is famous. Over the years our loyal customers have encouraged and challenged us to push the gastronomic boundaries, keep the creativity flowing and, above all, maintain exceptional standards. Because of their enthusiasm and confidence in us, we have continually met the challenge and we plan to bring more of the same exciting cuisine to guests at Mr Todiwala's Kitchen.”
The hotel’s main restaurant, The Gallery, will specialise in seasonal and local produce, which will be available throughout the day and will be both freshly prepared and cooked to order.
Guests can also experience a luxury spa complete with a hydrotherapy pool and eight treatment rooms. The Imagine Spa offers hotel and day guests the flexibility of booking time rather than treatments which means that each individual is recommended the most appropriate therapy for their needs once they arrive. The luxurious treatment menu includes relaxing aromatherapy baths, a wide range of facials, massages and seaweed wraps, all using the latest spa products. A gym equipped with treadmills, cross trainers and weight machines will also be available to hotel guests 24-hours a day.
With 350 spacious rooms each fitted with a 37” integrated flat screen HD television, Hilton Serenity beds, deluxe bathrooms, a generous workspace and complimentary Wi-Fi access throughout the building, Hilton London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 is set to herald a new era in airport hotels.
