Four of us visited Rio this week during a heat wave. It is a huge upstairs restaurant with a tiny enterance, just off Parramatta's Restaurant Alley - Church Street. Surprisingly, it did not seem to be run by Brazilian's. The price at just under $40 a head was excellent. There was no entertainment -ok and the air conditioning was struggling.... More

I was having high expectations of this place, what a let down it was. The staff were so rude, they cared more about getting paid then actually looking after their customers. The food was average, though for an all you can eat, they did not offer you much, they just gave you a couple of tiny pieces and did not... More

Went to this restaraunt with a group for a Christmas Party. We were crammed in like sardines. It was noisy so conversation was hopeless. The drag queen needs to find some sort of personality. Posing for photo's with nothing to say is embarrasing. The meal consisted of meat meat and more meat. Very little variety and only one small salad... More

We booked Rio's for an office Christmas party and to say we were disappointed would be a huge understatement. Firstly, the food was sub-par. I've been to many Brazilian BBQ restaurants and this was horrible. On the night we attended the restaurant they were very busy with other Christmas parties. However, it was clear they had tried to use the... More

The food was incredibly quick and was tasty for a table served buffet meal. Drinks service was an odd setup and reduced the overall pleasure involved in the experience. It was very loud inside and hard to have a conversation over the noise at times. Fine if you are having a party, not so good for a catch-up sit down... More

Went there last night for a work Xmas party. Food was dreadful. Limp salad which consisted of 2 olives, a piece of feta, a tiny wedge of tomato and some lettuce from a bag. Then the meat came along. A slice of sausage, some garlic beef and lamb. All fatty. Then the chicken came out. The stench was dreadful. No... More

Dancers were terrible no Brazilan in there dancing moves. The lady taking your money as you walk in before you sit down is not friendly at all she does not give you a nice welcome felling at all. Wont be going there again and wont refer this place to anyone. The waiter that helped us was very good at least

Wow... is all i can start with. So we got to the restaurant and they wanted to make us pay $59.00 per person. When we said oh thats a bit much and were about to leave they said oh ok we will do it for $49. Reluctantly, we agreed, only to find a flyer at our table which CLEARLY stated... More

I went to a lunch session so no belly dancers but for what you pay at a lunch session it's totally worth the visit. The sides came out first and wow my mouth exploded with incredible flavours - the potato salad with the spicy sauce or the basil sauce was a party in my mouth. Then came the cheddar cheese... More
