Not what I expected and not worth the price we paid for three people. I read in other reviews that there were over 10 different types of meat. We were only offered about 3 meat options, ribs, chicken wrapped in bacon, chicken wings and sausage. The chicken wings were way over cooked plus no meat, they might of been left... More

For what they charge, this is very good. My family enjoyed the good of course. Compare with Cleo's in San Bruno and I think Pikanhas is better. The only thing I did not like is they included the service charge in the bill and I did not notice until after I looked at the receipt when we left. I gave... More

We had never been to a brazilian steak house before, but our friends have raved about them in the past. So we got a group together and went to the closest one, Pikanhas. Getting seated happened fairly quickly. The ambiance was casual and moderately quiet, the decor was colorful but the layout was a little odd in my opinion; maybe... More

Located in quaint Pt. Richmond in close proximity to Chevron. I had the rodizio lunch which is quite expensive but all the meats were delicious. The sausage & picanha were my favorites. Variety of things at the salad bar but not to my taste for a stand-alone meal. The grilled, cinnamon dusted pineapple was a pleasurable end to the feast... More

Service was good but a little slow. The food other than the meats carved at your table were so-so. The Brazilian specialty lunch was a little pricey.

We went in November of last year. The restaurant is small but big on personality and great food. I loved how the place had a warm laid back feel.The meats were cooked to perfection and there was various side dishes to choose from. The service was amazing. I was blown away by their grilled pineapple. It was so good and... More

The worst service ever. The ladies were very rude and the food was ok. We were held hostage in the restaurant because I wanted to pay my bill...although the server knew what I ordered and agreed that I included the right amount tip and tax...they refused to process the bill because they wanted the whole group to pay. I had... More

A great approach to a very good meal. This venue is very clean, great presentation on the salad bar with fresh products. On the Radizio lunch they come by your table with fresh cooked meats and you are able to sample varies types of meats, chicken. Although they were cooked a little well done for my taste, they were hot... More

The restaurant has limited seating and reservation is needed. The place was cozy and clean. They have a good variety of food to pick from. But of course I came here for the steak. They did not disappoint with the steaks. The staff seemed like they were waiting for us to finish our steak so they can come around and... More

Ok a vegetarian has no business at a Brazilian Steak House, right? LOL But let me tell you the buffet was pretty good and they served me plantains frequently. The plantains were just like the ones my grandma used to make for me. Can I tell you how emotional I was?!? Ok, I won't. But, you get my point. My... More

Description
PIKANHA'S BRAZILIAN STEAK HOUSE

Pikanha's Steak House proudly introduces the traditions, culture and food of southern Brazil to Bay area. We offer a variety of different cuts of beef, pork, lamb, and chicken that are slowly cooked with special grills to preserve all their natural juices and flavors.

Rump cover is a part of top sirloin. Picanha is very popular at all-you-can-eat barbecue restaurants (churrascarias), called either a "rodizio" in the southeast or a "espeto corrido" in the south of the country. Although it is not completely certain, many brazilians chefs agree that the picanha cut originated in Rio Grande do Sul, the southernmost state of Brazil, famous for its churrasco.

PREPARATION

Picanha is usually served grilled or roasted. In the latter case, it is common to roast the whole piece on a spit and cut slices from it as thin or thick as desired, usually so that several people may share a single piece even tough they may not agree on how cooked the meat should be. Alternatively, a rump cover may be cut into slices thick enough to stand on their edge on the grill. In this case, the slices, typically seasoned only with rock salt, are usually grilled with the thick layer of fat down until most of it melts away and the remaining fat becomes crispy.

Each of the sides is then grilled for about ten seconds. The slices are then cut down the middle, each thus producing two slices only half as thick. The uncooked side of the slices should then be grilled. We hope you enjoy this gastronomical adventure called "Rodizio" at Pikanha's Steak House along with the unique style and tradition of the Gauchos from the south of Brazil.
