We always love Chima. We’ve tried so many other Brazilian Steakhouses and it always leaves us longing for Chima. The flavor of the meats and the quality keeps us coming back. Service is typically on point-once in a while there’s an issue but they always correct it. By far our favorite restaurant!

Meat lovers dream. Ample food. Salad bar and sides were good as well. If you do any drinking, it is a $100+ meal. Go hungry.

Good food and drinks are to be found at this nice Steakhouse at the edges of Western Center City Philadelphia. There is good live music in their lounge area on selected evenings, and their Salad Bar has some really great items included on it .

Excellent evening with friends! Awesome food great wine and great service. The spices they cook with set them above all the other Brazilian steakhouse we have tried in Philadelphia. It was nice to go to a restaurant and be able to hear the discussions without having to yell.

This was our pick for our monthly dinner; three couples trying our best to stay connected. The food was delicious. My husband and I agree that we would return just for that delicious salad bar - SO many yummy choices. My personal favorite of the dinner selections was the ribeye ... so much flavor, but the lamb was a close runner up. My husband said the salmon as perfectly cooked. Others at the table raved about the shrimp (although none of us really liked the fact that the shells were still on). There were so many delicious cuts of beef. Our server (Mike) was fabulous ... attentive and helpful. The only downside of the experience was the “entertainment” at the bar ... these were obviously not professionals but they were all quite loud, meaning we could hear them all through dinner. It was painful to listen to. One more compliment - coffee was delicious. Valet service was very prompt and friendly. We will return.

Chima has gone so downhill it is ridiculous. After hardly receiving any meat after an hour the server tries to get you to go. They kept bringing the same meats over with no variety. We got the salmon 7x despite not taking it at all and only the buttered filet once no to mention how many we did not receive. Apparently you’re supposed to leave after an hour because they just stopped coming to our table at a point. The table next to us had the same issue. The meat also lacks flavor it once had. Very under seasoned. No variety. If you want to pay premium rates for a flank steak, salmon and jalapeño steak this is for you other wise take your wallet anywhere else. Long time customer will NOT return.

Flank Steak was very good. Other steak okay some had gristle. The four of us did not care for mashed potatoes, fried plantains and bananas. Two ordered drink and it was not worth the price $15, felt it was a drink when you are on the beach in the summer.
Asparagus from bar lack flavor.

I thought Chima’s menu options changed a little, it’s the same as the last time I was there. It’s ok, n I didn’t know the shrimp was seasonal. I love the Shrimp, vegetables, and pineapples. The shrimp wasn’t there. It’s too expensive to not get what you want. I probably wont go back.

The food was delicious. Christian was very nice and made sure we had what we needed. I believe the manager that night was Mauro who was also very kind. The food came out quickly and everything was more than delicious
