Comida

On our latest visit to this rodizio grill restaurant, the salad bar seemed small, and featured roasted courgette and peppers, good pão de queijo (cheese bread), standard farofa (roasted manioc flour), and lacklustre feijão (black bean stew). But we wanted meat, so, unperturbed, we waited for the procession of skewer-wielding waiters to come over from the open grill. Disappointment ensued: a herb-filled pork sausage was tough on the outside and dry within; chicken wrapped in bacon was passable but greasy; and chicken legs could have done with longer on the grill. The sirloin steak lacked any flavour other than its garlic marinade, and the usual rodizio pièce de résistance, picanha (rump steak), was tough and veiny. Grilled pineapple was great, but not what you would expect to pay almost £20 for. Apart from the lamb, which was flavoursome and perfectly pink, and a good bottle of Chilean house red, Comida’s star attraction was a good-fun, chatty waitress who epitomised Brazilian warmth. If it’s done right, we’re fans of the rodizio’s eat-all-you-like concept, but we’re not sure it works so well in London at these fairly budget prices (£16.90 at lunch, £21.50 in the evening).

Amazing food and excellent services. Staff treat my wife and I like family, they are always considerate in terms of offering us what we like and go out of their way to please us. The meat is cooked to our liking; the buffet is always fresh and full. I am a meat lover that has been through most of London’s churrascarias and steak houses. I’ve been eating at Comida at least twice a month for the past couple of years… What more can I say?

I've just returned from lunch with a colleague at Comida, and am baffled by the negative reviews the restaurant has attracted. This was my first visit, and the waitress took her time to explain how things worked and what I could expect. We must have had at least nine separate courses from the chef with the meat skewers, each of which was absolutely delicious. After our meal, we spent some time chatting to the waitress about how things had been for the restaurant since the New Year and then left very happy and full. I would have no reservations recommending Comida and will certainly be back soon.
