Great food and service at Chima in Philadelphia. Only reason I didn't give 5 star was the price. I understand it this experience doesn't come cheap, but this is a little higher than expected. I will say Chima seemed to provide more beef compared to Fogo de Chao. Fogo tends to give discounts but makes sure you get plenty of cheaper meats like sausage and chicken. Chima really delivered the food and the service was very attentive.

Worst dinning experience I’ve ever had me and my friends would never go back there again and quite frankly wish we could get a refund

Very nice place. Hip atmosphere. The salad bar was good. The meat could have been better. Overall not a bad time. I prefer Fogo de Chao.

Excellent food and service. Best salad bar I’ve seen at a restaurant, even though you may want to skip it just too save room for all the steak! Have been to Chima several times, and have never left disappointed. The special is a great deal, barely more than you would pay at a regular restaurant but here you get endless high quality steak and meats brought to your table and sliced right there for you! The full menu is definitely worth it though, with a larger selection of delicious meats and comes with dessert too! Highly recommend!

Waitress was not attentive at all. She never provided any summer options, just assumed we wanted full meal. Spent alot for eating very little. Was not impressed and most likely will not go back

As far as the food. It was delicious. The only reason for less than 5 stars for food was that both chicken options offered were overbooked/dry as was the filet mignon. Everything else was great.

While the the food was good and all. I was not happy with the service. I forgot my glasses at the restaurant and when I went back for them the next day, they were quick to say that they didn't find any glasses when I was 100% sure I left them there. The manager took my phone number saying they would call if they find them or not but I never heard back from them. They were just in a rush to dismiss me without any help.
