Rainforest cafe (London) Reviews
Description:20 Shaftesbury Avenue, Piccadilly Circus. Phone: +44 171 434 3111.
Newest Review: ... little outdated in coming years. Every 30 minutes there is a simulated thunderstorm which involves flashing 'lightning', loud 'thunder' sounds and simulated 'rain' (you don't get wet though) which is good fun. We also spotted a real fish tank full of tropical fish and a fountain. There is no background music, just the sounds of the rainforest, which I really like as it makes the experience ... more

Rainforest Cafe is an Amazon rainforest themed restaurant. There are 32 Rainforest Cafe's worldwide (most of them in the US) but only 2 in Europe and 1 of those is in the UK. I have visited Rainforest Cafe's in Paris and in Florida in recent years. I had great experiences at both so finally decided to try out the London Rainforest Cafe last year. The Rainforest Cafe can be found on Shaftesbury Avenue, right next to Piccadilly Circus. It's on a main road and a few doors down from Ripley's Believe It Or Not. The nearest tube station is Piccadilly Circus. There is a big Rainforest Cafe sign at the front of the restaurant as well as a life-size crocodile in the ... Read the complete review

Rainforest Café is a restaurant which wants to be a jungle film set located in central London, just behind the Trocadero and a mere 2 minutes walk from Picadilly tube station. It's the kind of place that as a boring adult I'd usually avoid, but as a friend had decided to hold her birthday there I felt obligied to temporarily suspend all my preconceptions and prejudices. On arrival you enter through a Disney store-type shop selling a variety of stuffed animals and other gifts that doubles the restaurant's entrance before descending down a set of stairs to the darker, damper climes of the restaurant. Immediately you feel in a slightly different world, with a ... Read the complete review

If you've got kids, forget TGI Fridays and the like and take them to this wonderful themed restaurant in the heart of Central London, located to the back of the Trocadero Centre, its within 2 minutes walk of Piccadilly and Leicester Square tubes and is accessible by all manner of buses on Shaftesbury Avenue., Meals are served from midday to 10pm on Monday to Thursday and Noon to 7.30pm on Friday and Saturdays. We took some little family members here and they loved it, the place is themed around an imaginary rainforest so there are animatronic wildlife, waterfalls and strange jungle noises throughout the meal. Staff are excellent and build the ... Read the complete review

Wonderful place for kids and families. It is fairly easy to find not too far from Piccadilly Circus tube station. I booked a table a few days ahead of our trip and we were seen to our table within 15 mins. It is well worth a visit from families visiting London. The 9 and 10 year old with me loved everything about it from the shop that you enter and exit through to the bar where they sat on tall stools painted in animal prints. The tables were a good size with comfortable chairs. The food was in my opinion cheap but this was beacuse it was Kids Week and the children ate free because we were going to a show! The meals were well prepared and there was a reasonable ... Read the complete review

When I bought my boyfriend tickets to a west end show we thought wed ,make a night of it! Id previously heard of the rainforest cafe and was eager to experience it myself! Although we are 18 and 20 respectively, my boyfriend and I are kids at heart!The rainforest cafe fed this enthusiasm to be kids whenever we choose! On entry there is a large toyshop full of every species of stuffed animal you could imagine! There was so much I wanted to take home! The Safari man told us the wait was 45mins so we played some air hockey and won loads of tickets in trocadero! By now my belly was rumbling! We were taken down into the restaurant to get a ...
