Once you’ve fought your way through the
cuddly merchandise inside the door, dining at the Rainforest Cafe entails descending into faux undergrowth, past lurking life-size gorillas and giant butterflies with trippy, flapping wings. There’s a long, American-themed menu of salads, BBQ favourites, chilli, noodles and ‘rasta pasta’, alongside a range of cocktails, beers and wines. It’s a huge place, with plentiful staff
who are good on allergies and excellent with tempestuous toddlers (children’s dishes include spaghetti with tomato sauce, dairy-free penne bolognese, meatballs, pizzas and proper jelly and ice cream). With thunder-and-lightning special effects and the occasional monkey cry from overhead, this is brilliant fun for families, office parties and anyone looking for something a bit different.
