Chima is the best Brazilian steakhouse in my opinion. I have been to Texas de Brazil and fogo and chima is the best in terms of service, meat options, salad bar, and side options. It is very expensive, closer to four dollar signs than three in my opinion. If you want to treat yourself to a wide array of great... More

We have eaten at several brazilian restauants and this one was ok. The salad bar was fine although had some unusual items on it. The side dishes were OK although my daughter really liked the potatoes. The meat like another poster mentioned, didn't have a ton of flavor. All in all we were a bit disappointed. I would recommend this... More

The BEST Brazilian steak house we ever ate at. The salad bar is top notch with the most expensive cuts of meats and cheeses. The place is pricey but worth the money! Come hungry!!

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, I thought we were in for a real treat! The salad bar was huge, but had nothing special on it. The appetizers and side dishes were bland at best. The meat was mediocre (yes, it was all you can eat, but the flavor made it easy to eat a minimum). For $52 a person,... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Florida. We spend part of the year in Ft Lauderdale and we have never been disappointed by this experience. We just had my birthday there and it was great. The atmosphere is exciting and the service is trembly attentive. My only warning is to pace yourself!!! It is a lot of food. Again, this... More

We have dined in many Brazilian steakhouses and enjoy most of them very much. Chima was one of the best we have yet experienced. Our greeting was very courteous and we were given a nice table. Our servers were quite nice and professional as well. The salad bar included several items not seen at some Brazilian steakhouses, The quality and... More

This was my first experience at a brazilian steakhouse and I loved it. My husband and I probably paid $100 for the two of us to eat here and it was worth it. The salad bar was great. You just turn your card over and they bring more meat. I had at least 5 different kinds.

This is a unique experience. Great for carnivores with huge appetites. Delicious unimaginable salad bar. All you can eat fish and salad bar $30 (for lighter appetites), all you can eat "high end" meats and salad bar $50. I suggest you give it a try, at least once.

Ive lived here now for 14 years, and this is the only place that not only is the food awesome, so is the decor, and I don't need to rave to the bathroom 5 minutes after the meal! Clean, high class, and just awesome.
