I have never been to a Brazilian Steak House before so didn't know what to expect. It is a great concept if you are a huge meat lover and if you can eat a lot. It is quite expensive if you are not a big eater. The food was really good though. Several choices of meats are brought on big... More

We ate here with a group of 4 after going to The Flying Dutchman at The Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. It is only a short walk. The salad bar is very large so be careful not to over indulge unless you want to have the salad bar with salmon and swordfish as your main meal. Otherwise meat is what you... More

I looked this brazilian steakhouse restaurant since it offered a barbecue exactly the one as you will find when going to Brazil! The location is situated in a really good neighborhood, close to everything!

Went to Chima with friends and coworkers Saturday night after our trade show. Staff and service was friendly but the food wasnt what I expected from a Brazilian Steakhouse. Many of the cuts were a little tough or dry. Ordered coffee after dinner and it was at best lukewarm. Overall not a great experience especially for the price. Will not... More

Make sure you're hungry when you arrive. Your meal begins with a trip to the food bar, where you can choose from a VERY wide assortment of goodies to go with your meal (salad, sauteed mushrooms, brie cheese, soup, etc.) but take it easy. You could easily fill up at the food bar, but DON'T! The real fun - and... More

This is a great restaurant for young men who can eat a lot of meat. It replicates a Brazilian Churrascuria but they need to serve more of the pao de quejo. We should not have to ask and then only be given one piece per person. The salad bar is good but the price for the all you can eat... More

We love this place. It is our favorite date night restaurant. It is almost as good as the rodizio down at Myrtle Beach but it is close. Their salad bar is superior but otherwise they are close.

We love Chima! If you like meat, you'll love it here. Great for those watching their carbs! Also, they have a huge salad bar of different types of food from the Brazilian culture. Very unique and beautifully presented. The staff is beyond friendly and accommodating. They made our visit very special. The meats are scrumptious, especially the Parmesan crusted pork,... More
