I haven't been to many of these Brazilian restaurants, but I am impressed with the clean environment, fresh salad bar, and the delicious assortment of meats. We tried five different meats, prepared 14 different ways! What fun. I had very small portions so that I...More

Small place. Looks clean. Waitress is very nice. Plenty of choices on the buffet. Different meat choices that were all very good. About $30 a person (including a beverage).

Come hungry, but only if you're looking for a huge amount of food at a price that's not all that cheap. This is not the place for gourmet cuisine or anything approaching it. The Brazilian buffet is rather limited and at $21.99 per person, is...More

But only if you value quantity over quality at what is probably one of the most attractive price points for an AYCE Rodizio in California. The lunch AYCE option at this place is just $21.99 and includes a decent if not expansive salad bar and...More

For what they charge, this is very good. My family enjoyed the good of course. Compare with Cleo's in San Bruno and I think Pikanhas is better. The only thing I did not like is they included the service charge in the bill and I...More

PIKANHA'S BRAZILIAN STEAK HOUSE Pikanha's Steak House proudly introduces the traditions, culture and food of southern Brazil to Bay area. We offer a variety of different cuts of beef, pork, lamb, and chicken that are slowly cooked with special grills to preserve all their natural juices and flavors. Rump cover is a part of top sirloin. Picanha is very popular at all-you-can-eat barbecue restaurants (churrascarias), called either a "rodizio" in the southeast or a "espeto corrido" in the south of the country. Although it is not completely certain, many brazilians chefs agree that the picanha cut originated in Rio Grande do Sul, the southernmost state of Brazil, famous for its churrasco. PREPARATION Picanha is usually served grilled or roasted. In the latter case, it is common to roast the whole piece on a spit and cut slices from it as thin or thick as desired, usually so that several people may share a single piece even tough they may not agree on how cooked the meat should be. Alternatively, a rump cover may be cut into slices thick enough to stand on their edge on the grill. In this case, the slices, typically seasoned only with rock salt, are usually grilled with the thick layer of fat down until most of it melts away and the remaining fat becomes crispy. Each of the sides is then grilled for about ten seconds. The slices are then cut down the middle, each thus producing two slices only half as thick. The uncooked side of the slices should then be grilled. We hope you enjoy this gastronomical adventure called "Rodizio" at Pikanha's Steak House along with the unique style and tradition of the Gauchos from the south of Brazil.
