Cyrus Todiwala Heathrow Restaurant
Cyrus Todiwala OBE, chef owner of Café Spice Namaste in London, is to open a new restaurant at Hilton’s latest luxury hotel, opening at Heathrow Terminal 5 in August.
Just one mile from Terminal 5, the hotel restaurant, Mr. Todiwala’s Kitchen, will have 75 covers and is expected to serve an upmarket Indian menu similar to that at Café Spice, but with a Parsee twist.
The chef, who is renowned for his work training chefs, has said that Hilton Worldwide approached him to open a signature restaurant at the property in a bid to add value to the hotel.
Indian hotel restaurants appear to be an increasing trend among UK airport hotels. However, in contrast to the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Heathrow Airport – which has announced plans for incorporating a branch of fine-dining Indian restaurant Eriki, a relatively unknown restaurant with a small following in Swiss Cottage – the Hilton has opted to use a notable chef.
