“Pleasantly surprised at how good the meal was!”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

I had not been to Chima in the last 4 years. My last experience with clients had not been the best, and I had found the meats rather flat in taste. However, when we tried the restaurant with my brother and sister-in-law this week, I was most pleasantly surprised at how much it had changed and how good everything was. I remember the salads had been rather pre-packaged tasting last time with little or no imagination. This time, the tastes were superior but most importantly each plate was visually displayed well and tasted as if they were freshly prepared in the kitchen just a few minutes ago! Then we turned our chips to orange and started receiving the meats... one after the other, they came and we tasted a little of every one of them and found not even one disappointing cut or preparation. I don't know what they do to their lamb, but it is definitely out of this world with aromas of rosemary and it melts in your mouth... well done Chima, I will recommend this restaurant to all who want to have a total immersion in great meat eating!

“Great service, a bit pricey”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

The meats were tasty, a little bit too "done" for me, I am more a "rare" meat lover. The place looked great, service was very good, salad buffet offered plenty of choices. Plus they offer valet parking for 5 USD.

It wasn´t really cheap, we paid for the all meats+salad & chicken+fish+salad, glass of red wine and a bottle of water, 110 USD...

“Great Churrascaria!”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

The ambience and service are great. It is not cheap but the meat is very good and "a volonte" like the ones in Brazil. The salad bar is great as well the meat selection. Make sure you are ungry once you go there and do not eat too much from the salad bar, leave space for the meats! They go well with a good red wine. They have a good selection of wines. You can go also for a drink and appetizers, if is the case seat outside or at the bar.

“Lots and lots of food”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Wonderful appetizers in the bar...we often skip the dinner part and just go for a martini (or two!) and a couple of appetizers.
