“Excellent Excellent!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Chima is the best Brazilian Steak house in South Florida! The food, the flavors, the service and the salad bar are over the top! They are a price fixe restaurant...and worth every penny! Don't worry if you are not a big meat eater...the salad bar stands alone!!

“the best of the Brazilian”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

it is the most expensive of the Brazilian meat restaurants with the gauchos roaming with their skewers of meat but it is the best ... their salad table is a work of luxury and art. Only a notch below and at half the price I also enjoy Area Code 55 further south on Biscayne & 167th.

“Perfect night out”
Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

Great atmosphere with great food.
Starting with wine list, little appetizers and expansive and diverse salad bar. Then they brought skewers of meat around and you get to pick and choose, which is typical Brazilian steakhouse but the quali is very high. Delicious! Highly recommend for small parties, business, etc.

“Nice food but too long wait for table”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Food was great and served fast but a pity they made us wait 1.5 hours for our reserved table.
We reserved a table for 20.15. Got there a bit late at 20.35 (rain and dense traffic) and did not get our table until 22.15.
Once we sat down the food was served very fast.

“If you are fond of grilled meat this is the place”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

What a great experience. Thanks to the recommandation of our waitress we did not have a lot from the salad bar - wasn't easy though this salad bar really is outstanding with all the appetizers and salads, all fresh - so there would be enough room for all the meat. So called Gouchos are just waiting for you to turn that little "yes/no" button for more meat. 16 different meats are available, from filet mignon to chicken and fish, all seasoned in a different and extremely tasty way. I really wonder how they do it since you can have your meat from Pittsburgh rare to well done all from the same piece of meat. My personal favourites were the sausage, lamb chops and the filet. Service was great, ambiente is really nice, great place to go with friends, family, for business or what ever the occasion. Loved it and wil definitely be back.
