Rainforest Cafe

About Rainforest Cafe

The Rainforest Café, near Piccadilly Circus, epitomizes the words "kid friendly". Recreating the sights and sounds of the Amazon rainforest, the restaurant is awash with special effects such as thunder, lightening, tropical rain showers and cascading waterfalls. Both kids and adults alike will find plenty on the menu to please, with many organic children’s choices as well. Favourites for adults include the tender pork ribs with Rainforest BBQ sauce as well as the savage steak sandwhich, while younger visitors seem to rave over the organic ham with cheesy pasta.
