Birthday celebration for my daughter

More than ten years ago my wife and I visited this venue for a Christmas function with my employer at the time. My daughter was coming from the UK so I decided to try Rodizio again. My booking was handled very efficiently. The evening was excellent and we ate more than enough; we all took the... read more

From making a reservation via the telephone to the warm welcome we received on the evening, the ambience, the food, the friendly service and the highlight being the comedy session with top SA comedians. It was a great evening and I would recommend it for experience dining. The taste of the food could be improved and they should really keep... More

It's been over a decade since my last visit. But the basic concept remains the same; lots of meat, served on long skewers; combined with cocktails, music and dancing. Just bring the guests and you're sure to have a fun evening. Ideal experience for the carnivore, less so for vegetarians or pescatarians, although there are palatable options. Try to go... More

We went to the Fourways branch and it was absolutely lovely. The service was excellent , the food was great , the entertainment was superb, the music and atmosphere was most enjoyable. Loved every minute of the evening. It was carnival night and the costumes were breathtaking.

I visited this Brazilian eatery in Bedfordview for dinner. I opted for the house speciality – Meat Rodizio. I love my meat and I really enjoyed the cuts of meat on offer - but I cannot eat too much of it. I was there on a Wednesday evening so there was no dancing at the venue but there was quite... More

We went there having heard of their Rodizio meat special, which I ordered but wasn't too please about it. The meat was prepared nicely, but the service was slow, so I ended up waiting for the next cut of meat to arrive. (Even though the restaurant wasn't even that busy) The ribs had almost no meat on it though, but... More

It's a great party place with a great show and dancing afterwards. One of the few places you can still go and dance the night away. The food is acceptable and the service is great.

We had a birthday function and it was good. we chose the traditional meal with all the cuts of meat. I don't think I had value for money at all, the meat was fry and the guys didn't come often with the cuts.. There was this couple that danced for everyone which was nice, when I got the bill I...
