Just what you'd expect, carnivore dreams

The atmosphere is typical of this genre, large open seating, moderately comfortable chairs, slightly overstated glamorous decor. The salad bar is massive with giant portobellos asparagus of surreal proportion. Intriguing salad combinations invite you to bulk up your plate, but don't be fooled... read more

Come hungry, because Chama Gaucha will afford you ample opportunity to eat extraordinary food. And it's not just the various meats they provide, it's also the tremendous and superb salad bar. They have an impressive wine list, as well. And the service is top-notch responsive.

The food is delicious and incredible!! Service is also good. But if you wish to have a conversation with friends, it's hard to listen because it is so crowded and loud. If you don't like crowds, then this is not the place for you.

What really sells for me here is the ambiance and customer service. I've been to all of the Brazilian steakhouses in SA. The foods and dishes are similar at all but what makes this different from...

As always the food is plentiful with the huge 'salad bar' in the center. I am never able to resist filling my plate with the salad run as everything looks and tastes great. The meat brought to the table is good but ranges from average to excellent. Just take small slices and focus in on what you enjoy. Tends to... More

My husband chose Chama Gaucha as a place to take me for my birthday this year and I was NOT disappointed. From the time we walked in to the time we left we had wonderful service, excellent wine and amazing food! For those who are not familiar with Brazilian steakhouses, this is quite an experience. You pay one price and... More

We've enjoyed Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse at 18318 Sonterra Place many times over the last 3 years... it exceeds everyone's expectations! Great bar service while you wait for your party to gather; front door greeters are always on the top of their game; and the updated interior is certain to please your family and friends. The variety of items on... More

The food was fantastic and the service was excellent. I couldn't eat fast enough before more food was brought to my table. Well worth the money.
