Exceptional food, tasty sides, staff are wonderful. One of the best steak restaurants I have ever eaten at. You can really taste the quality. Really good wine list. Will go back again without hesitation

I went to this restaurant due to a work matter. I had a 3 course lunch and I was very impressed. It was very fresh and the taste was a delight. Would definitely recommend to try. If a little nervous on price.......you get what you pay...love it.

This restaurant is one of a few 'fancy' places in a good location near the brisbane river in a precinct of bars and restaurants. The restaurants in this precinct are some of the highest class in brisbane. Cha Cha Char didnt disappoint and both my partner and I had a delicious meal. Both had steaks (it prides itself on high...

Visited during Exhibition week. The restaurant was busy and seriously understaffed. Our main arrived over 2 hours after we arrived in the restaurant and 40 minutes after they told us it was 10 minutes away. The steak was good, but one of the steaks was more gristle than steak. Poor performance.

An institution in Brisbane if you want to have a steak lunch or dinner with some business thrown in . The steaks are great , and the wine list is impressive , but now there are so many fine steak dining places in Brisbane , that if it want to keep up it needs to be better.

Me and my friends went on a raining day, the place was not crowded. It took them 45min to cook and serve the meal, I admit steaks take longer time to cook, but I mean, this is slow. We were not too bothered because the service was good in general and the waiter came and apologized for the long wait.... More

The service was slow, and we had to send our steak three times to be cooked the way we ordered. Nothing special or exciting except for the lamb brain entree which was a new taste to me and I liked it. I do not recommend having a stake here!

This place was good but super expensive. It had a great noisy atmosphere especially for a week night. Entrees varied from $20 to $30 Mains were $40 on average Steaks started at $30 but went way up in price to the $90 mark. $50 was probably average. Too expensive for me for a piece of meat, so I had duck... More

Cha Cha Char Wine Bar & Grill is a stylish, contemporary restaurant specialising in high quality, cooked-to-perfection steaks.On our menu you'll find plenty of information - the breed, paddock address, age (12 months to 30 months and older), size (200g to 600g), accompaniments and diet (grass fed/grain fed) as well as snapshots of rare, medium rare, medium and well done steaks to help diners with their preferences.It's harder than you think to get a great steak onto a plate - there are so many variables. Restaurateur John Kilroy is a nationally recognised beef judge and is constantly showcasing products to the hospitality industry where discussions range from the breed of cattle, feed type and age of the carcass. His wide recognition throughout the beef industry means that we receive first class products on a consistent basis, year round. John sources the beef direct from producers and suppliers and ages it for five weeks, giving diners a chance to taste different breeds, brands and regions. That's why it's Brisbane's signature steak restaurant!
