We had vouchers which gave us the all you can eat BBQ at a greatly reduced price. It consists of about 8 different meat dishes that are brought to your table one at a time, some side dishes which can be topped up on request and cheese balls to start. All the food was fine but you need to like your meat and salt! The staff were friendly, the restaurant is cosy and the dancer was impressive! Quite a good list of cocktails.

Very Interesting restaurant, we went with friends none of us had visited Boa Brazilian BBQ before. We were welcomed by friendly staff waiting at the door to show us our seats. Once we were seated lovely waiter greeted us & explained menu. We all picked all you can eat which all food was cooked beautifully, side dishes were also delicious. Only complaint I have it is not enough time to really enjoy food & company. They have two sittings 6pm & 8pm, by the time you sit down have menu explained half hour has gone. That gives you an hour of eating before dancing girl comes out – which is very entertaining! Then your bill arrives and it is time to go, would highly recommend they extend time so people can enjoy time at their restaurant. Over all we enjoyed the experience.

Spend dining evening on Sunday session first time as we had introductory food vouchers,
As mention before restaurant run two session different then normally used “all you can eat”
Waiters walk with food sticks at timely pace and fill up yours plate and you need ask to pick additional meat pieces.
Its small place there drink bar taking more then quarter of restaurant.
Prices are on average but I’ll think twice for paying full price drink list are extend with same good cocktails but again its not mach to BBQ.
Cons to interior you cant see the chef cooking yours BBQ everything done at the rear of restaurant and this would be the positive for real Brazilian BBQ.
Waiters are very polite and helpful and short show take yours eyes from bill appearing on yours table at the end off 2 hr session.
Dancer are lovely with real Brazilian temperament. As am saying its “Dine with Happy ending”

I went to Boa on Saturday night with my boyfriend and his Mum, who are Brazilian. We arrived late for our booking and were lucky enough that the staff found a table for us and the couple after us who had just become engaged.
After being seated, the chef came out and asked if we had been there before. Because we hadn't, he then explained the whole menu to us. I really appreciated this being the only non Brazilian in the group! He then took our drink and food orders (no paper and pen necessary!)
When the food arrived it looked and tasted delicious! I was told by my dinIng companions that it tasted just as it should and we were all very impressed.
Overall I would say it has a really relaxed vibe and the staff love to make sure you enjoy your dining experience. We will definitely be back!

We booked a table on Friday night for my Mum's birthday. Luckly we booked the 6pm sitting time, therefore we didn't have to wait to for the table. It took about half and hour before the meats and side dishes came out.
We have never tried Boa Brazilian BBQ before, but from talking to Brazilian colleagues, the meats are slow cook with charcoal; therefore the meat doesn't need much marinate and should be nice and tender. BUT WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. The first meat that bought out was the sausages and the were dry and overcook that it is dry and salty. The meat came out at a steady rate, but they were all very salty and the lamp, beef or even the special barizilian BBQ were salty and tough. I do not think the meats were slow cook with charcoal.
We did try all type of BBQ meat and hopping there were one that would not be so salty; but there is not one meat that is free of salt. There were only 4 different types of salads available; but not even good.
To sum up, I would not recommend the restaurant to our friends and would not go back there again. Also, bring your cash if you plan to try them out because their eftpos didn't even work.
