We had dinner before a musical show and I am glad they were open at 4:00PM. The salad bar is the best in Charlotte. The meat choices are great, but my favorites are the lamb shops and the fille mignon wrapped in bacon. Only if they could reduce the salt in their grilled meats I would go there more tahn... More

We took part in the Veteran's Day special at Chima, as it's about the only time we can justify going because of the price. When Chima originally opened, we remember paying $39.50 per person...which is high, but was reasonable for a nice night out. They are now charging $55 per person for the Rodizio... Even with a buy one get... More

ThIs is probably my favorite restaurant. I'm a big meat eater. Unfortunately if it isn't Restaurant week, we leave with over $100 tab. So this is our spot for special occasions.

One of the best salad bars with unique items. Very large wine selection. When you finish salad bar selection and turn over a small table token, severs bring 16 meat and fish selections for you to sample right at the table. Process moves right along and we were in and out in under an hour. Not really conducive to long... More

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!
