Food pipe is just next to heart. If food pipe is having acidity due to bad food habits and smoking then it will appear like heart pain. He needs to take bland soft cool diet like more yoghurt, lassi, banana. He needs to stop eating junk food and must eat fresh fruits and vegetables and drink lots of water. He can take PPIs like Omeprazole under medical supervision for relief. He needs to quit smoking and drinking alcohol if he is smoker and drinks. If ECG, ECHO TMT are normal then less likely heart disease.
