I enjoyed my time at Chima. It was low key on a Tuesday. They made me feel special on my bday and took pics and printed them. The salad bar was amazing and the rib eye made me super happy. Great tiramisu too.

We came for our anniversary. The hostesses were kind; our server was enthusiastic and attentive. The food was delicious. Thank you for the complimentary dessert. We appreciate all the staff did to make our celebration memorable. A couple we recommended Chima to should be coming this weekend.

Chima was amazing. The service was okay. It was our first experience there so we weren't quite sure what to expect or even how the menu worked. The first waiter we had was kind of rude, and didn't really take the time to explain it to us. However, our second waiter was phenomenal and really carried the weight of the other. Overall, the food was outstanding. We will definitely be going again1

We have been dining at Chima (in Philadelphia and other cities) for about 9 years. One of our favorite meat, lamb chops, had been changed to one-bone cut (vs. 2), therefore the meat was thinner and a bit overcooked. The beef rib is still the best!

The wine list can be better, at least with more choices, especially for ones by the glass.

Food was really good & some of the best Rodizio we’ve had but service was poor. The actual waiters were nice but we went on a Friday night at 8:30ish & it took forever to just order our cocktails & get our drinks. Also there were long gaps between getting the different meats coming around so at times we were waiting close to 10 mins before getting another piece of meat come by.

This was my first time at Chima's. My friend has been recommending it over Fogo de Chao. I liked that they had more options and a well put together/creative salad bar. My mom and I went during restaurant week and updated to the full menu. Everything was delicious.

I’ve been to a few Brazilian steakhouses and I always find myself coming back to Chima. Unlike other places, it is not overpacked where you’re sitting on top of the next table. Amazing salad spread and amazing cuts of meats. The ambience is just perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle of life!
