“Good for an occasional visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

This was my first RFC visit and I did enjoy it but the prices are a bit silly ($14 for a lunch salad?) The atmosphere is very well done, if geographically confused. Young children could easily get overwhelmed by the noise and visual stimulation. Food portions were a decent size, neither gross-out big nor tiny, My daughter's shrimp kid's meal strangely came with pre-formed chicken dinosaurs in addition to the shrimp; I was rather fond of my chicken salad. All in all, It was fun to see once but am not going to hurry back. T

“Cute atmosphere, low quality food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011 via mobile

Just look from outside, the rainforest atmosphere is cute, but gets annoying before your food even comes. The food and drinks were very overprice, and it was just frozen food reheated.

A fun place for the grandkids. Plenty to watch and enjoy. The food was OK. Nothing to write home about.
