11 reviews of Rodizio Rico in English
Other reviewers have mentioned a band, but I dont remember one or any music at all!
We requested that we buy our own drinks from the bar, because its unfair to divide the bill up & expect those not drinking to pay for others that do. After much discussion with the server & the manager, they said we couldnt on health & safety reasons! They said it was too packed in there to have people walk to the bar & back. This is despite the fact that you have to walk to & from the buffet with plates of food & the servers are carrying around 1m skewers with enormous carving knives!
The buffet was ok. A fair selection of salads, rices & fried things, but the 'hot' side was only luke warm. The meats coming around on the skewers were tasty, but some were rather chewy, despite them being rare-medium. I did see well done meats come around too, but these must have been like leather.
The 'ribs' were brought around on plates & were bone free. They were however just clumps of fat & sinew with very little meat. Rather tasteless too.
I had a cocktail (£7) which was less than half full & the rest was ice. This soon turned into a massive block at the top of the drink- not very good value.
Overall the food was ok, but I wouldnt be rushing back.
This place is a meat-eaters dream come true. You just take a plate and add some bits from the all you can eat buffet and then sit down at your table. Then just wait for the meat to start coming. about 5 – 10 waiters will walk around the restaurant and carve meat for you at the table.
Once you are full from the meat and buffet just turn the little coaster on your table from green to red and they will stop coming to your table.
This is a great experience and is something very different to just ordering in a normal restaurant.
The price is good at about £22 per head for all you can eat.
The restaurant is based in the O2 and is huge inside with an upstairs too.
The food while constant,was of average quality. The live band was loud and spent the evening shouting across the table to my partner to have a conversation. The waiters were friendly and accomodating. I will not be going out of my way to eat there again. Its ok. Nothing great.

Arrived around 14:30 on a Friday. 4 aduklts and 2 children under 2.
Food: The grilled meat was cooked only on the outside (first slice you get) and any subsequent slices were more or less raw. All meats were rediculously chewy and my plate was mostly filled with bit I gave up on or were just completely raw. We complained to the manager and he only charged us for the vegetarian options instead. We left hungry. And at over £60 (after reduction) it was a rip off.
Service: We had to complain about the non-existing service. And once we complained, we got first slices on all the meat, but couldn’t help notice they would then move on to the next unfortunate customer, who would get the next raw slice (being too polite to say no I guess). They ignored the coloured cards we had as well).
We then had to fork out a gratuity charge of 10% which I thought was rediculous for having to flag people down all the time and getting the manager called… and for 4 adults?!! The whole point of this restaurant is the guys keep coming to your table, why am I paying for this service again??
Atmosphere: A bunch of TVs here and there playing south american concert music… hardly an atmosphere.
Value: Waste of time and rip off. I read similar bad reviews before I went but thought I would give them the benefit of the doubt and (wrongly) assumed people were there on an “off” day. I was wrong. I would give them -1 stars but the manager did try to rectify the issue. Unfortunately it seems to be common occurance.
Verdict: Don’t bother, I have been to a few of these abroad, hence insisting I try one here regardless of reviews… this one is a fail.
I love this place! It's situated in the O2, and I always make a beeline for it before a gig.
Being a bit of a carnivore, the concept of unlimited good quality meat was always going to draw me to a restaurant. The basic idea is that you visit the buffet to stock up on salad, bread (try the little cheesy bread nuggets, melt in the mouth!) and rice. You are then give a card with a red and green side. Place the card with the green side facing up to let the waiters know you're hungry, and the red side up to tell them you're full.
You'll then have a variety of waiters offering you sirloin steak, cumberland sausage, chicken wings, fish and many different varieties. They carve the meat off for you at the table.
It's around £22.50 each, about the same price as most buffets. Delicious, excellent service and a great way to keep everyone in the family happy!
I went there with a friend on a late Saturday afternoon and we ate continuously for 1.5 hours. The food (mostly meat for us) was that good. :)
It wasn't busy and they did a good job of making sure that our plates were never empty.
I was introduced to Rodizio Rico by my Brazilian friend. We actualy went to the Islington. It was a veritable feast indeed. You have a choice of seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes. An enormous salad bar and delicious nugget shaped balls of warm garlic bread. The waiters attend to you at your table bring various grilled meats straight to your plate, including tender Brazilian steak. I went there two years for my birthday and a had a wonderful eating experience. My cousin and his two friends - one from Sweden and one from New York were stuffed. I f you have any room left, I would encoourage you to try a Brazilian dessert. They are indeed special.
Everything about this restaurant is superb. The food, variety, the service, its location, the athmosphere. The place is so clean and elegant and the staff is ever so friendly.
Everybody I have taken there loved it!
Took the family (11 people) out for a meal at the weekend, and was recommended this place by my boss.
30 mins before we got there the restaurant called me to check we were still attending.
Went in and was seated straight away, it was very busy.
The salad bar was massive and well stocked. The place was very clean and the staff friendly
And for the food, the food is amazing, could not believe the selection, I ate more that day than ever before in my life.
Only gripe would be that the tables are a bit close together, but that’s I guess just cause they are so popular.
I first visited the Rodizio Rico located in Angel, and although I enjoyed the experience, it does not compare to the newly open one located in Greenwich.
It is a Brazilian style restaurant and is full of Brazilian flare. There is a salad buffet, which also contains hot dishes. However, various types of meat are served by waiters off giant skewers. the meat is mouth-watering and the style of this restaurant allows you to try a variety of meats…
Please, for your own good, do not miss this experience, and indulge for once the right way! If you have visited the restaurant, you will know exactly what I mean, BUT, if you have not, then what are you waiting for?
