Best brazilian I have had! Better than all the others in LA, Las Vegas.... The drinks and the meat combo of this place make it truly special. And do not forget to try the passion fruit chocolate dessert... one of a kind... Have yet to find it at other brazilian restaurants in the US! I long to go back here!

Made reservations here based on other reviews and, while it was "fine," my family was waiting to be impressed. Food was okay though most meats were quite fatty and we had to ask for them to be cut in a leaner fashion. The dining room facilitator did a good job and provided good service. Restaurant decor is nice but salad... More

Was there Saturday night, very nice place, salad bar was very good, the rest is just an average Brazilian rodizio place, very very expensive. went there with a lot of expectations recommended by a friend, but no major difference with other rodizios. Service was very good.

The staff is attentive and ready to serve you as soon as they see that your dish is near empty. The buffet area is just amazing and their location is perfect. Highly recommend.

Chima Brazilian Steakhouse offers an amazing variety at their salad bar with a wide selection of vegetables, fresh fruit, cheeses, and cured meats, but the star of the restaurant is their variety of meats. Servers walk the restaurant carrying large cuts of beef, pork, chicken, lamb, and fish to satisfy even the biggest appetite. Drinks are a little on the... More

Wonderful with a professional and courteous wait staff. My first visit to a "Brazilian steakhouse" and it did not disappoint! The salad bar provided many options and colors of fresh produce and soups/ sauces that are seldom seen in restaurants.Tasty meat options and was thrilled to see lamb offered ... a favorite of yours truly. A "must visit" for all... More

This was my first time eating at Chima. Not being much of a meat eater I stayed with the salad bar which had lots of options from smoked salmon to gorgonzola mousse. Others in my party enjoyed the all you can eat selections of meats. I was with a large group and we were easily accommodated. There was live music... More

We come to Chima's Brazilian steakhouse when we want a romantic dinner. The food is really good, but the service and the live music are what brings us back. The singers are usually Brazilians and the have a very soft, jazzy voice. The outside loungers are nice, and they will bring you snacks and drinks out there while you are... More

Went for a friend's birthday last month. I have been to other Brazilian steakhouses and I have had better than Chima. The restaurant was beautiful, but the price I paid for the food I was not happy about that. My phone was over $80 for dinner and one drink.
