“Fun night, good entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

For an enjoyable night take a drive to Rodizio. They do things differently here and overall everything is consistent. Out of all the restaurants I have been to this is probably one with the best service. This is a well run establishment and they cater for all. For a vegetarian enjoy a platter with some mash. For the meat lover don't forget about the all you can eat meat called the Radizio. Don't forget there is a cover charger per person for the entertainment but it is usually worth it as there is either a comedy or music evening.

“Service & Quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

My family and friends often go to dinner at Rodizio in Bedfordview. One normally has to make a reservation but the owner/manager would always make alternative arrangement to ensure that space is created for his unexpected guests. Special effort is made in ensuring that children are well taken care of and entertained. The food has never been below 100% perfection.
We have tried several dishes but what stands out is the fillet steak which comes with a variety of sides. No matter what you choose the dish is always made and served to perfection. From the moment you enter the restaurant you are met with friendly and highly competent servers, and the manager/owner lends an even more personalised service.

“Perfect for a 'no hassle' 21st Birthday Party”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

Had my sons 21st birthday celebration here. It's a guaranteed success. You don't have to worry about organising anything, everything is taken care of. Great food, service, entertainment, and music. Definately the way to go! You can specify a drinks limit, select a set menu etc. well worth it.

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

If you planning on going to this restaurant then organise transport home in the wee hours of the morning because you just won't want to leave, the food is delicious, they carve meat at your table and it's all yummy, you put a red flag up on your table when you just cannot eat any more and the servers then stop bringing you food. The atmosphere and music is brilliant! It's a great place to go and dance and have lots of fun, go in a crowd tho, not really a couples place much more fun with a group of friends. Great for office or birthday parties.
