The salad buffet was so tasty and fresh that you almost ate too much before the meat starts to arrive! Go HUNGRY as you can eat as much as you like for the set price. The iPad presentation of the wines/drinks etc a bit twee. Great tastes to the meat and he service was excellent.

Came for a birthday dinner with a group of friends. The staff is great, pleasant and attentive. The food is great from the salad bar, which is not the run of the mill salad bar, to the endless meat selects. I didn't have one bad or even average item.

For a huge restaurant with Brazilian type food service, Chima turned out to be really good. The meats were all great and tender, and the service was super. I definitely would recommend this place anytime...

We came here for dinner with a group of people and had a blast! The waitress and staff couldn't have been nicer and more attentive. The meats were excellent. We paced ourselves as the waitress suggested and even had dessert, which was also amazing. Can't wait to come back.

CAUSHION, this is an all you can eat place. And that includes salad as well as all the meat you can possibly consume. Excellent wine list, and then to the salad bar, more than what you are used to exploring but the reason one goes here is what is brought to you at your table. You have this placard which... More

This was the best salad bar ever! I know the 16 different grilled meats swirling around in the capable hands of the gaucho servers is the focus, but omg! The gorgonzola mouse & corn mouse (w sep items), were a highlight, just not something you find often. All of the veggie dishes, especially the shaved zucchini & squash with lemon... More

I have been going to Chima for several years. I like the more laid back atmosphere compared to the other Brazilian Steakhouse in town. This last time, my wife and I went with two other couple friends of ours. Our reservations were right on time even though the restaurant was crazy busy. Our server was right there when we needed...

Just back from our first visit to Chimas-Philadelphia. Was reluctant at first because we usually go to Fogo de Chao. But since it was a special dinner (as our friends are relocating to Germany in a few days), we decided to try some place "new." We were not disappointed. There was an understated elegance to it. Our wait staff (Lovely... More

My boys LOVE this place. It was an experience for them, and one they want to repeat every time we are in Philly. I would say it's a little pricey but knowing my boys eat more than enough, it is well worth the final bill. The food is amazing, the wait staff is great and the gauchos are awesome! LOVE... More
