“loud but fun.”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Food was surprising good, for such a themed location, jungle animals, vines, waterfall, etc. It was very noisy, not the place to go for quite conversation.

“A funny little place”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We couldn't help but to stop in at this pretty trendy cafe inside the Arizona Mills Mall. They have a gift shop with some mechanical talking animals and a tree that sings.Don't forget about the cool looking aquariums! As you get to the cafe part it's a bit dark but it has glowing stars in the sky and more mechanical animals (the Apes). The price for food is a bit pricey but over all it was fun.

“Kind of dirty”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

This mall location needs a face lift. Looks like the plants/decor hasn't been dusted for years. That was a disappointment. Otherwise, typical Rain Forest Cafe.

“Great Theme Decor + Excellent service”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We set off to the mall after the graduation ceremony at ASU, Tempe to do some shopping and ended up having lunch at this weird place. Really nice jungle theme and the services were excellent considering the crowded nature of the place that particular day. Children will really love this place, because they seem to pay more attention to them. Cuisine was American and excellent; just what we ordered and on time too. "The Rainforest Cafe in Tempe is really a forest with wild animals in a very friendly atmosphere".

“It's a Jungle Out There!”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

While shopping at the mall we discovered this place. We were looking for a sit-down restaurant, not fast food. It was quite interesting and different. Food was good and the atmosphere neat, lot's to look at (and hear). We do not have any kids but if you do they will love it!
