Chima is not only a place to try good food, but is an experience in itself. At the beginning I thought it was slightly pricey, but when I tried it I felt it was totally fair the pay this amount in exchange of what you try. They have a fantastic open buffet of side dishes, salads, and appetizers, and the... More

A late evening dinner that met our expectations. After a brief wait we were seated in the middle of the resteraunt. We made specific meat request to our server to efficiently enjoy the meal. The meats were flavorful and served at the requested temperature and the salad bar was great.

There is an issue with the valet parking that created some confusion, they are located on the side street not on N Tryon like the other restaurants on this street. When I asked the attendant to take our car he told me that they are not permitted to accept any vehicles on Tryon. The adjacent street has heavy traffic and... More

Hi Steven! Thank you for letting us know about your experience. The valet parking service is a private company called Preferred Parking. It used to be located on Tryon, but it caused a lot of traffic, so by city ordinance they had to move to 4th street. Sorry about your wait - On NYE the city of Charlotte closed some... More

We arrived early so we went to the upstairs bar. Caipirinha orders are prefaced with "do you want house or top shelf Cachaça"? - Overpriced but good. Hostess is cute but lacks maturity to handle front desk duties. Salad bar was fresh and good. Table service was good and meat-cutters were attentive. Not quite the variety of meats and salads...

A beautiful restaurant for meat lovers. The Brazilian way of serving meats in a great variety. Have your meats served the way you want it grilled, your size and at your frequency. A healthy and very big salad/vegetable bar makes the whole meal complete.

During a recent business conference, a large group of us dined here for dinner. I really did not know what to expect as I have never been to a restaurant of this kind. I enjoyed my meal very much and the service was excellent. There were a variety of selections of meats to choose from. I will recommend this restaurant... More

Had a dinner party if 9. Food was too quality and there was plenty of it. Average $60 per person but more than worth it.

We took our son and daughter here for his 21st birthday. It was our second time dining here, but our children's first. If they could, this would be dinner every night. Excellent service, great food, no rush to eat, or even to pay the check. Waiter mentioned eating some cantaloupe when you feel the "meat sweats"! LOL it worked! Best... More
