Brazilian steakhouses are not difficult to find and you can generally say that they are good, but I haven't been to one better than Chima to this day. Everything is awesome! But the place is always so crowded that the atmosphere is a little too loud for my liking; however, the food ia worth the sacrifice.

You know that you are in the right place as soon as your car pulls up to the valet. There are warm greetings and then a pleasant stroll under the immense Banyan trees to the entrance. More greetings from the host, then you are seated and ready to immerse yourself in the experience. A wonderful top shelf salad bar with... More

The service was exceptional with many attentive friendly staff. Sommelier was knowledgeable and helpful. It has an extensive wine cellar. There are many good quality choices for the salad bar. The many types of meat presented were all fresh, hot and tasty. It was overall an amazing experience well worth the cost. We'll definitely return to this restaurant next time... More
