Special Occasion Worthy!

We were a group of 23 and the table they set up was almost as large as their salad bar! I could rave for quite a while about their H-U-G-E salad bar. And there's a side bar next to the salad bar that has soup, bread and I can't even remember what because there was so much other food. Okay,... read more

Husband was dying to go here for while now. Finally made it out here today. I am not impressed and neither is he. Let me say that the waiters are great, super attentive and were on top of everything. The cheesy bread and the meat croquets were pretty good and that's where we went downhill. The salad bar is a... More

Excellent meal. The best salad bar ever. The way you taste and enjoy steaks you like. If you need a place for special occasion, this is it. The huge group can enjoy the atmophere, the tables are big, and still this is very pleasant place to be.

Came here for dinner during Restaurant Week, so I'm not sure if the massive dining room is always this crowded and loud. There were several children yelling and running around throughout the restaurant, so the environment is far from quiet. To start off, the salad bar is amazing. They've got a great variety of foods, and everything I got was... More

This is our by far our favorite churrascaria. Love the meat and fish selection here. And the salad bar is one of the best I've been to. Nice atmosphere. Always great service. Went once in the summer, and the entire restaurant was hot. Manager came out and checked on everyone, made sure they were doing ok in the heat, and... More

This is the only Brazilian Churrasco cuisine restaurant that I know of in this area. There are other branches in Charlotte, Ft. Lauderdale, and Philly. It's a huge restaurant quite near the Tyson's Corner mall complexes. Dress is semi-formal to formal and a reservation is needed, even though we ate there on a week day. Some diners arrived in regular... More

The restaurant is located right across from the Marriot which makes it very convenient for those staying there. The food was good but I've gone to better Brazilian steakhouses in the area. It could use a little bit more of a variety for the side dishes. I'm not sure if it was because our group was big but it was... More

Great place for dinner with friends or family. The food is great and the wide selection of meats and the salad bar has a great healthy spread. Each person is given a ticket, the Orange side of the ticket start your service with steady flow of different selection of meats and the black side stop the flow of meats and... More

The service was very good. I had a friendly and attentive young man. One of the best Churrascarias I have enjoyed. The mats were all very tasty and perfectly cooked. Very nice wine selection. Salad bar was beautiful. Would have given five stars if it weren't for the irresponsible parents with small children running wild. One of them even hit... More

We made the reservation two days before Thanksgiving. When we arrived Chima, the hostess told us to wait since they are experiencing high volume. After waiting for 15 minutes and no calls, we went back to see the hostess and by apologizing she was able to find us a table right away. The manager came apologizing again but nothing to... More
