“Expensive and expected a little better”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Its expensive and all you can eat like at these places but I really expected little better food. It wasn't bad but not any better than I can make a home. I felt like a lot of the food was over cooked or charred.
Not worth it in my opinion.

“Chima in Charlotte. Good Experience.”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

My husband and I chose to go to Chima to celebrate our wedding anniversary because we wanted something different. It was to celebrate a memorable day in our life and we wanted to be with our family and friends. We had heard good things about this place so we decided to try it, and we were not disappointed; in fact, it was a good gastronomic experience, maybe not the best one of our lives but still pretty good. First, everyone ordered some cocktails. All of them were delicious. Then, the waitress brought some tasty, crusty, and freshly baked bread, which was very good according to my husband. I enjoyed the salad, every vegetable was fresh. Finally, the main courses. The meat was very well cooked, soft and tender. However, the taste was not what we imagine it will be, just good enough. Still it may be worth a second visit.

“Best Brazilian BBQ we've been to”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

This is without a doubt the best Brazilian BBQ we have been to, they have a very large selection of meats and all were cooked perfect. First one that we've been to that will actually ask how you want it, med rare, med, well etc. the place is 2 stories, we were placed on the 2nd floor they call there private room and were worried we would be forgotten about. Well that wasn't the case at all, as soon as we turned that thing over to give me meat it was a parade of meat to my plate, we actually had to temporarily turn it to stop as our plates were getting full. Highly recommend

“Repeat customers”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

My husband and I are repeat customers here. Friendly service. Carnivore's heaven. They quickly learned that he preferred his meat rare. I usually stick with the salad bar items, myself. Pricey for just that but still a great selection of items although perhaps not as much as Texas de Brazil. Free valet parking service which is helpful downtown.
