“Wonderful seasonings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This was my first visit to Chima, but not my husband's. He kept warning me not to get full from the salad bar, because I wouldn't have room for the meal. The salad bar isn't a typical salad bar, but I wasn't that impressed with it. The flank steak was so good. I had a little steak and chicken. I became full very quickly. If you have high blood pressure or cholesterol then you should skip this place. We had a voucher that I purchased about a month ago which was $25 each or the meal. If it's a little pricey for you do a search on Living Social or Charlotte Today's website for deals. They also are participating in Charlotte Restaurant week so there was a special today. We payed for the special and are saving our voucher for another time. Valet parking was a big help.

“Go hungry!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Had a wonderful birthday dinner, but it would be nice at anytime. Great hot food and variety. Steaks are of great quality and flavor. Go hungry. A piece here, a piece there and you will get full. Lovely staff and atmosphere. Will go back!

“Great change”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Went to this restaurant on a recommendation. I heard great things about it and wanted to try it for myself. You have to be a meat lover. You get to eat all you want of about 16 different types of meat- bacon wrapped chicken, Parmesan chicken, steaks, and lamb. It was a change from the normal. Service was great from start to finish. They has a variety of items on the salad bar from seafood salad to homemade mozzarella balls. It is one that you should try. Please note that it is pricey but worth the experience.
