“Real Brazilian "Soul Food"”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

Buffet of real Brazilian food, not fancy, just good. No waiters carrying around bar-b-q here. Select your tasty desires and pay by the pound. Tasteful, but simple decor, and very friendly staff. If you want the fancy Brazilian meats, they offer that as well, at their other location in the Triad, Lebron.

“A taste of Brasil!”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

If you want to have some authentic and delicious Brazilian fare, then this is the place to come. It is very casual and the wait staff is very friendly. We love coming here when in the Greensboro area.

“Fun dining experience.”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

Enjoy a brazilian buffet in which you pay by the pound. The food is tasty and it will cost about $20-25 for two. We have been 3 times. The only thing that I would recommend is for them to switch up the items which seem to be the same every time. The people were friendly and very informative about how to dine there. The owners also own an amazing 5 star Brazilian Steak House in Greensboro called Leblon!

“Pleasant experience but meats are dry.”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

The thing that makes THIS place stand out is the warm welcoming A+ service. We were greeted when we arrived and when we left. All of the servers were sweet, informative about the food, and seemed genuinely happy to be there for you. We would almost go back just to have service this pleasant. The ambiance was enjoyable and attractive.

About the food. We have eaten here twice and have decided that this type of cuisine is not a style we like. We found the lasagna to be the best dish, tender layers of meat and sauce that melts in the mouth. However, on both visits the meats - pork, beef, and chicken - all were disappointingly dry and tough, and not edible. We expected a grilled flavor but it merely tasted baked dry. Some of the dishes appeared to have been out for awhile as they were dried up.

Also, we felt that the price is relatively expensive, but maybe not considering the method of cooking is labor intensive? The salad bar was fresh, but paying $6.59 per pound for such veggies like cucumbers and sliced canned beets is a little steep. We got a little of this and that, and our plates were $16.56 and $14.57. And we weren’t able to eat it.

“Bad service, great food”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

The waitress did not refill our drinks until a person from our table went to her and asked. She was inattentive and forgot our silverware so we picked up some from another table. In spite of these drawbacks, I would like to return. The food was fresh and delicious. The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was comfortable.
