Rainforest Cafe Restaurant Review

: A thunderstorm rumbles through the 400-seat dining room every 15 minutes, animatronic elephants raise their animatronic trunks and trumpet, and khaki-clad servers traverse the premises hollering Volcano! as they deliver the restaurant's signature, sparkler-topped dessert to diners. It's a real jungle in there. Opt for Rasta Pasta (grilled chicken, walnut pesto, broccoli, red peppers and spinach tossed with Alfredo sauce), the Rumble in the Jungle Turkey Wrap or the Congo catfish plate. Portions are large and prices aren't bad for a chain restaurant.
