The latest incarnation of the carnivore’s favourite, Rodizio Brazil’s new churrascaria-style Brazilian restaurant takes up new premises along Battersea Rise on the other side of Clapham Common from its big brother restaurant. Offering the same mix of mouth-watering grilled meat dishes, wine bar and nightclub atmosphere, Rodizio Brazil mark II is set to carve an even bigger slice out of London’s steakhouse scene.
ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE! BOOKED A 4 PEOPLE TABLE FOR SATURDAY NIGHT,ARRIVE TO THE PLACE TO FIND OUT THIS SO CALLED RESTAURANT IS MINUSCULE,IT LOOKS LIKE A EX-CAFE PLACE. BEEN TO RODIZIO RICO (O2)AND RODIZIO IN ROMFORD WHICH WERE GREAT BUT THIS IS A JOKE. DIRTY FLOOR,A GREASY BUFFET WITH FEW ITEMS ON IT. IN TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE,WE WERE SLAPPED WITH A £1.80/PER PERSON SERVICE CHARGE FEE. THAT IS ILLEGAL TO CHARGE UNLESS WE INFORM THE CUSTOMERS PRIOR. DRINKS ARE HUGELY EXPENSIVE,A LITTLE MOJITO IS £7.50 STAY WELL AWAY UNLESS YOU WANT TO CRY AFTER!!!
The staff were friendly and courteous, there was a great range of foods, from salads to meat stews and the offer of meat from skewers was unrelenting - great if you like alot of meat.
You are not going to go hungry. The food does come out quickly and would recommend the lamb and gammon. Top tip: don't fill yourself up at the buffet bar (although the stews are nice)
Those familiar with Rodizio Brazil’s Clapham restaurant will be familiar with how things happen at this Brazilian steakhouse favourite. The same holds at the Battersea Rise restaurant. A proper Brazilian cultural event, London has long enjoyed the Brazilian rodizio mode of dining, where wait staff known as passadors circulate among the tables, watching for the small red and green discs that diners use to indicate whether they want service. If the disc is turned green side up, this means you’re ready for another round of freshly carved, barbecued meats.
Choose from over prime 15 cuts of your favoured beast, all carefully grilled over a traditional churrascaria barbecue: chicken and bacon, chicken hearts, chilli chicken and herbed chicken legs, beef rump and cap of rump, sirloin and flank steaks, pork loin with parmesan and pork ribs, legs of lamb and sausage. You might not believe it, but vegetarian options are available at Rodizio Brazil’s Battersea Rise restaurant, too, with plenty of non-meaty but just as authentic Brazilian dishes on offer. For those who’ve enough room in their bellies for a little salsa (the dancing, we mean), Thursday night through to Saturday night sees Rodizio Brazil transforms into a nightclub, plying a danceable trade between Latin America and London.
