“Loads of meat but OK for vegatarians as well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

We went on a Saturday lunchtime before the theatre never having been to Islington before. It is really well located on Upper Street, not too crowded, and a simply enormous buffet combined with unlimited and tasty meat brought on skewers and carved at the table.
My wife though just had the vegetarian choice and was very happy - plenty of choice plus an aubergine dish cooked separately and brought to our table.
The food was tasty and plentiful, service polite and good - do not eat much before you go here. £19 a head for the buffet was fair as you won't need to eat again for a while. Would go again.

“Great for carnivores”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Went here for a family dinner the other Sunday and really enjoyed the experience. The meat is extremely plentiful, excellent quality and a huge range from ribs, sausages, chicken hearts, various cuts of beef, lamb and chicken. The meat is brought to the table every few minutes until you have indicated by reversing a coaster that you have had enough. The self serve salads and hot dishes are also extremely good and there is garlic bread, cheese bread etc. you will not leave here hungry!

Service was friendly and attentive and will definitely visit again.

“Great for all you can eat meat!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Place is nice and friendly, staff are attentive. Salad choice is limited but decent. Hot food was rice, beans, and pasta type dishes, I didn't try any of the hot food though as I wanted to save room only for meat. Meat was good and always coming every few minutes to the table, choices were beef and pork ribs, gammon, lamb, chicken and pork sausages, chicken wings and heart, sirloin, flank, and other types of beef cuts. Overall a pleasant lunch for a reasonable price.

“Great experience on quite days”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014 via mobile

I visit my local Rodizio Rico in Angel often. I ve found that the overall experience varies upon the day of visit.

Quite days like Monday-Wednesday it's great overall. I mean the meats are well cooked, not rushed and the overall service is tentative and personal. Last Monday we had a quirky server I ve seen for the 1st time that added that extra bit.

In busy days I try to avoid it. Servers are overwhelmed and there seems to be no structure from floor managers. Also the meats are churned outside and uncooked inside, making them chewy.
