“Pricey and very basic food, excellent service though.”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

After reading some reviews and noting a high percentage of satisfied diners, we chose Flame grill for our 16thwedding anniversary dinner.
There were plenty of waiters, they were very pleasant and service was brisk.
The food though was very basic; slices of grilled lamb, beef, pork, sliced off a spit at the table. It was okay but kind of boring, same for the salad and vegetables. The people at a nearby table must have eaten twice what we did, I couldn't eat another mouthful and although I didn't make a pig of myself felt bloated and sick from all the meat.
I don't feel I had value for money with, the amount I ate and the quality of the food.
In conclusion, if you love meat, basic grilled; lamb, chorizo sausages, pork, beef, chicken hearts, chicken, seafood stew and aren't a keen vegetable eater you'll love it. If however you want something special, something that you can't easily cook yourself, then this isn't it.

“Great place for meat eaters”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

If you're hungry and in the mood for a lot of meat, then this is the place for you. You get a reasonable selection of grilled meats (although less than I've seen at other churrascarias). It's unusual in that they come out in a set order and you have to ask specifically if you want seconds, but the system works pretty well. The meats are well-cooked, although a couple are on the saltier side. Service is fast and friendly. There's an early bird special that makes it more affordable.
