Recently attended with a party, and we were all impressed at the quality of the meats and attention to proper cooking. The lamb chops were the best I've ever had, and the salad bar was voluminous and tasty. I will certainly return.

We love eating here. We have eaten at many Brazilian restaurants across this country and we find this location one of the best. The flavor is perfect - not too salty, just right. The staff is wonderful. The salad bar selections are incredible. The desserts are delicious as well. One of our favorite spots in Charlotte.

This was my second visit to Chima, but it certainly won't be my last!! I asked my husband to take me there for my birthday, because I had visited the restaurant before and loved it! Believe me, I wasn't disappointed, because the second time was just as good as the first. The hostess seated us with our Yes/No chips when... More

Everything was great and the food was good. I felt they waited a little long in time before they brought the Go/Stop buttons to our table to begin the meat service. Perhaps they wanted us to eat a little more off the salad bar first. But after I asked they promptly brought them. The servers were friendly and attentive. They... More

I had heard so much hype. A group of 5 of us had dinner there. We were all disappointed. Tons of meat but nothing tasted good. Almost gamey and over cooked. Think Golden Corral but priced like Ruth's Chris. The salad bar was better than the meats. I think you can order the salad bar as a meal for $35.

My husband and I got engaged here back in 2009. The servers helped him plan the surprise. Every year since, we celebrate our anniversary with awesome food, great service, and and elegant atmosphere! If you are a meat lover, this is the place for you!

My in-laws treated my husband and I to this restaurant for his birthday. We were both very excited because we had heard a lot about this place. Well there was a 30 wait so we sat at a cocktail table, my husband had to get up and order us drinks from the bar because no one came around to take... More

We have ate at Chima Brazilian Steakhouse about 12 times in the last 3 years. I'm telling you it is the ultimate dining experience. The salad bar alone is great, but don't eat to much because all the selections of meats are unbelievable. The beef ribs will melt in your mouth. Ok now I've made myself hungry again. See you... More

This was one of the best places I have tasted in a long time but $50 per person? No way! We can't eat that much to make it worth the money but the food was superb! So if you want to splurge which is allowed every now and then then this place has the food, ambiance, and service. Sorry, I... More
