Second time at Chima. This one was as good as the first. Great, pleasant wait staff; very professional, timely, listened well. Food was fantastic and the meats kept coming as often as we liked. Would definitely recommend for a terrific restaurant experience.

All of the staff were very nice. Food was pretty good but not sure if it was worth the price. The roasted pineapple was our favorite.
