KATANA KAFÉ & GRILL: Unique Views & Fabulous Food

Katana Kafé & Grill
Written by Local Flavour

Come for the planes. Fall in love with the food. Located within the Diamond Flight Centre, the Katana patio runs beside the London International Airport runway. This is the ONLY place to eat fabulous food and drink lovely libations while watching 90,000 pounds of aluminum, steel and titanium come and go.

The Scene

The decor recently refreshed and upgraded, is sleek with a contemporary vibe and aeronautical theme. Bright and airy, the tarmac-side patio and large windows allow for viewing flights. There is not a bad seat in the house! Reservations are recommended.
