Book a table
We ate here about a month ago having eaten in other similar styled restaurants abroad.
Firstly, the selection of meats was very disappointing. Approx half the number of meats that other restaurants in London claim to serve (we've not been there yet) and certainly a lot less than what we've had in the US and Spain.
Someone mentioned (in their review) that deserts were included - NO they are not ... these, like drinks, are extra - at least, that's what our waiter told us!
Service was pretty slow ... It was more a case of asking the waiters to stop at your table as they passed by rather than their looking out for your red/green token. In fact, we had to wait a little over 15 mins just to order drinks (we were one of only three tables in the restaurant at the time).
So, neither the service nor the meat selection were great and the buffet section was very disappointing.
I went there a week ago on Saturday 22nd May and had a terrible experience with this restaurant. When I arrived late to join the rest of my party, I was ignored by the waitress. I had to ask for a drink which was about 15 mins after my arrival and even though I had my disc indicating that I would still like to be served the bbq meats, the waiter ignored me and continued serving other tables instead. I will definitely not return to this restaurant but will be going to Fogos in Ealing, it is out of my way but the reviews on Tripadvisor indicate that it will be worth it.
Went there 3 years ago and enjoyed the experience first time. However, it is noisy but lots of fun. Staff are working like mad trying to please all but it can be stressful, so best to have a lot of patience. Waiters come round with long spit-roast sheeshes with bbq'd items of meat or veg and there is a buffet of other things to add to the meal. If I recall, there is a charge for dessert and drinks. Best to go with groups and with kids who are mad as they'd feel at home.
We booked a table for four to celebrate a birthday. When we arrived, no table had been reserved for us. Instead we were offered seats at a long, communal table in the middle of the restaurant. There were two tables for six which were unoccupied and had not been reserved but the staff would not allow us to sit at them. We said we were unhappy - very politely - but the manager wasn't remotely interested. We therefore ate somewhere else (a very good Lebanese down the road). A pity because -celebrating another birthday two years ago - we'd enjoyed ourselves. We're all very fond of Brazil having lived or travelled there for a number of years but we won't be going to Rodizio Rico again.
I went 3 years ago with a friend from work. I enjoyed every minute of it. The choice of meats was to die for. I will be going again very soon. Anyone going for the first time, go with a open mind and just relax and have fun. Please remmber compared to other resturants its really worth the price.
A very enjoyable evening. The restaurant was full and noisy, everybody was having a good time. The food is excellent and buffet style with the meats being continually brought to your table on "swordlike" skewers. Eat as much or as little as you want - there is the one price with desserts and coffee extra. An ideal venue for a celebration but dont go there looking for a quiet dinner for 2 !! There is seating on the ground and basement levels. On the ground floor you can see the meats being cooked which is pleasant to watch. Wine list was good and there were Brazilian drinks available both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. The restaurant is very popular so booking is a really good idea.
