“Excellent! Delicious Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

I've been to many Brazillian restaurants here in the US but this one tops them all. Service here is impeccable and they are super friendly. The waiters come and ask you what you are looking for and they go out of their way to get you the meat. I think we asked for the pineapple many times and the waiter went and got it really quickly for us. People were saying this place is better than Carnival and while I've never been to there I think this place could top it. I saved $30 each way in a taxi since I stayed close to this location. It was walking distance for me and I didn't feel unsafe here. They do have a security check outside though so that was kind of nice. Got to try crocodile meat too so that was neat. Food was delicious.

We got lucky too since we didn't have a reservation but still got seated right away. Just try to go early and you'll be fine.

Total with beer for two people was $52 USD. That is pretty cheap considering Brazillian here in Los Angeles is about $30+ and that is without beer.

“THE place for meat lovers....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

If you love meat, then this is the place for you,They just don't stop coming out of the kitchen every few seconds with skewers of barbecued meats. As long as you are displaying the "green" side on your table, they will stop by and offer you whatever they have. Huge variety of meats including crocodile! The salad bar in itself is more than sufficient for a meal, but thi is not the idea of going to this place. They also have grilled seafood such as jumbo prawns and red snapper. The grilled pineapple with cinnamon is a nice way to finish the meal. Mke sure you are REALLY hungry when you go there!

“Similar to Carnivore restaurant, good for meat lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

Pretty good food, although the menu can be a little misleading, as when we visited there was no Crocodile or Prawns to be had. Still the food is pretty good, very similar to the renowned Carnivore barbeque pits, but in this instance all self contained in a good sized restaurant.
Staff circle the room and will keep plying you with a selection of grilled meats until you give in and turn over the beer mat to supposedly signify No More, however they will not always check and still try and feed you some more.
If you do go for this menu, enjoy the meats and don't go mad on the buffet salad bar as it will just fill you up quicker. The spiced and grilled pineapple dessert is very tasty however.

“Meaty heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Service is amazingly fast, mouth watering hot sizzling cuts each time (fresh off the grill). The Brazilian costumes are add a nice touch. Been here about 5 times in the last two years and never been disappointed.
