We went there as a couple and although the atmosphere was great and the servers friendly the service was slow and the food was average. Go there if you have kids but if you are a couple go somewhere else.

Took forever to get the check. We had a burger and fries and a Cobb salad plus two kids meals(which we had free coupons for) and our bill was... More

Every time in the Houston area we NEED to stop at the rainforest. Staff service food entertainment is wonderful. Like going on a mini vacation.

Great place for kids birthdays and other celebrations. My little one was excited to see moving animals. Adults will enjoy their food. They provide delicious shrimps of all sorts.

We have taken several small children and it is fun to watch their faces when the animals start making sounds. We visit the Rainforest in the Katy Mills mall at least once a month, and one of our...

I think that the concept is great but the animals were way too loud. My daughter kept getting scared and covering her ears. They just need to turn it down a little. The food was great and the service was good.
