“Good food. Price is just”
Reviewed 15 June 2013 via mobile

There is not a wonderful restaurant, but the the price is normal and the food is very good. The place itself is hidden, I confess I took same time to find it. The restaurant is located beside of a bank and could be difficult to find it if you don't live at the city.

“An Excellent Hideaway for Lunch”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

This review is for the Avenida Iguacu venue. The atmosphere is spectacular with the birds they raise there. If you happen to go at lunch, it's very possible that you'll see the nearby birds fly to the restaurant's garden. It's a very pleasant scenery specially on sunny days.
The meat is always above average however they do occasionally suffer in chilly days with undercooked meat. A pleasant surprise was a suggestion for an appetizer with a fish from Amazon, very tasty and consistent as read meat.
In the overall it's one of my favorite places for business lunch if the other party prefers meat à la carte.

“Good service, expensive, realmente não valeu o que pagamos.”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

We went happy hour to Shopping Estação at Saanga Grill on Monday April 15 at 6:30pm, we were 5 people total, we ordered 4 chopps, buy 1 get 1, we order Aipim com bacon, french fries and carne de onça. Total of R$81,00 super expensive, i guess we paid for their leasing, because nonetheless it is very expensive to be inside a shopping center

“Bad service, expensive and meat is nothing special.”
Reviewed 22 May 2012 via mobile

I love meat and I do not care if I need to spend some coins for a good piece of beef.
Now, with an extended pedigree, we arrive to this restaurant that was cold and quite empty (monday).
We arrive by taxi but with a flyier saying that they pick you up end drive you back to your hotel. Because someone drove us there, we just ask for the return drive. They refuse to do it inventing diverse excuses (dependin to who you ask). True is that once there, they do not need to care for you, we were somehow, captivated customers.

Well, we stay anyway.
First thing that looks unusual,mthe price of the meat is by 100 grams. You also can choose between Premium, Super Premium and Kobe qulity.
We went for the Super Premium (which was stated to be, in "average", 400 grams).
The meat was hard, fatty and Not really tasty.

When they bring the bill, they charge the oieces of meat by 500grams each. Come on! This was not a 500 grams piece, sure.

I call the manager to explain all my complaints but, he did not care. He just argued that 400 grams the piece is just an average number. Well, in three pieces you may spect to have on piece closer to 400 grams, isn't? He did not care, we were just tourist that most probably will not back (by sure) so, why to take care for us? Instead, the policy there is just to take from tourist as much as they can.

Caipirinhas were crap as well.

“Excellent meat, horrible service”
Reviewed 16 April 2012

I've been to Saanga Grill at ' Shopping Estação' (Estacao Mall) and I have to admit the meat is one of the best we tried.
The salad buffet is very simple and if you go after 2pm, forget it. You'll only have some left overs.
The service is horrible. You have to call the waiters all the time otherwise they wont come to you. Last time we went, we sit ourselves and nobody came within 10 minutes so we just left.
Other 3 times we've been there it also took forever to get our drinks.
The meat is delicious, it comes with chimichurri sauce on the side.
Too bad the service makes us not go there ever again. I even sent them an email but no one ever contacted me.
