Great atmosphere for date night. The ambiance was disturbed by a crying baby and a parent walking around the restaurant in an attempt to console the baby😖. Anyway...the food was very good in taste and appearance. If you love meat this is the place to go. The salad bar was left lots to be desired. But overall a very enjoyable... More

This was our first time at a Brazilian steakhouse. They have a wonderful salad bar. I tried a bit of everything. The meats that were served were cooked well and very tasty. But there wasn't much seasoning used. Maybe the because they offer many sauces and condiments. My favorites were the bacon wrapped chicken and the fried banana. The service... More

My family goes to Chima every year for my birthday, and it lives up to the occasion. If you are a carnivore, you will love this place. It has beef, pork, fish, and bacon-wrapped everything. The salad bar is also impeccable. Food is served Brazilian style with various waiters carrying around whole racks of meat, just waiting to slap a... More

A superb meal and attentive service. A salad bar that is amazing. The meats are incredible and flavorful. You need to tell them that you want more but can't eat another bite!

Many of my friends think that a visit to Chima Brazilian Steakhouse is something to do once in a blue moon. Because, frankly, it is one of the most plentiful meals you'll ever experience--from the never-ending servings of Rodizio and the huge salad bar with far more than just salad. One price for all the food you can fit...of course,... More

My favorite meat is the beef rib you must ask for it first, you will want more. It is juicy and it is so flavorful and melts in your month. the salmon is awesome also, do not worry if you do not eat meat. the salad bar is a world of its own. The servers will bring you the meat... More

This is our second visit to Chima, both for my husband's birthdays. We live in SC but traveled to Charlotte specifically for this treat. The selection is great, and the food is amazing from the salad bar, to the meats, to the dessert. Try everything! It's definitely pricey, so go with an empty stomach and enjoy.

My husband and I visited Chima tonight for happy hour. We had been for dinner before but had wanted to try their half-off happy hour special. We ordered one of everything "from the grille".
