We waited for more than 30 minutes for the starter (Nachos) and it wasn't even busy and approximately 1 hour for two main courses. The food wasn't that special and oily and extremely pricey in return. Big disappointment.Read More

We heard all of the sounds but no movement or light show going on at...Read More

Monkey gibbers, birds chirping, the sounds of rain falling and let's not forget the lush foliage, vines and ferns decorating the ceiling - are you in a rainforest? Well you might as well be as it's the Rainforest cafe! This place is awesome and not just for kids. I've wanted to come here for ages and I'm so glad that I did.

Looking around the underground beauty it's hard not to be in awe of...Read More
