Excellent salad bar, even though it appeared to be richer a few years back. The meat is always fantastic and juicy. excellent variety. You will find the one you want.

This is a great Brazilian style steakhouse. The atmosphere / decor impressed me. Great place to go with business partners or clients. Very professional staff from valet to hostess to servers so 4.5 The food was almost perfect, the seasoned. Steak and other meats were not as good as the buffet salad and breads

We went for my husband's birthday. We don't have a bad thing to say. They have so much food. They have a salad bar with so many things besides salad- beans & rice, a soup. All of the meats are very good. They try to accommodate how you like the meat cooked. The entire staff was very attentive and very... More

It was my birthday and I had gone their for my first time. At first, I saw the outdoor patio and was overwhelmed with how beautiful it was. Large trees covered with lights, a large outdoor patio, and you can see the deli where they had prepared the meat. The decor inside was absolutely beautiful and very clean. The bathrooms... More

This Brazilian "churrascaria" has one of the very best salad bars you'll ever see. There are so many choices your head will spin. There are all types of cold salads, shrimp, fabulous asparagus, smoked salmon.... I could go on and on. There was a Gorgonzola "mousse" that was absolutely outstanding. The meats, however, were another story. They weren't bad, but... More

I loved the outdoor patio here! So walking up to the restaurant just feels really "cool" and I was excited about it. We had a good table..Some of the tables are shared booths and a little close so ask for a table near windows. The salad bar was good but if you've been to a Brazilian steakhouse before, I thought...

This was the first time my wife and I have ate at a Brazilian steak house. I went there expecting the worst but hoping for the best. In other words, as long as it was in the 4 star range id be fine with it. I don't understand the concept of the whole thing?? We had two waitresses and like... More

Always such a pleasure to dine here. As a meat lover, you simply cannot go wrong with Chima. We visit Lauderdale 4-5 times a year and Chima is always on the itinerary... always! If you live for meat, you simply must come. Pro tip: the wife loves swordfish, and they have it, but you need to ask your server. They... More
