A word from Bem Brasil, Northern Quarter
Churrascarias are traditional Brazilian steakhouses know throughout the South American countries offering the most succulents cuts of meat prepared by skilled artisans. The style of cooking found in Churrascarias dates back to the Brazilian cowboys, who roasted skewered cuts of meat over fire pits. This is the ethos that inspired Bem Brasil Bar & Restaurant. The team at the popular restaurant don't believe in limits, which is why it offers a unique continuous service (or Rodizio), where the meat is carved right at your table and you're able to take as much or as little as you want.

    The place is nice enough inside and the staff are good but the meat was far too salty.It made us really thirsty and really spoilt the meal for us.We won't be returning on our ne t visit to Manchester.

    A great meal. All the meat was amazing, although my eyes were bigger than my belly. I enjoyed the lamb. When I go again I will try a new approach. Although it would probably be better to go as a group than as a couple. giving more time for each meat choice. Overall a very memorable experience.

    I came here with my partner and was only slightly aware of what it was like. If i had seen the price before coming i would not have visited. While the concept and food was good the bill was a massive shock and we both felt that it was over priced, for what it was.

    My wife and I had a day out in Manchester and wanted a Brazilian steakhouse experience! We came here and we were not disappointed. The staff were incredibly friendly and catered to our every wish! The food was divine! Cuts of meat I'd not seen before and the lamb was to die for! Would recommend this experience to anybody! And £13.95? Price was unreal!! Top marks!!!!

    The whole eating experience at Bem Brazil is fantastic. The staff are friendly and informative, the food on offer is varied and cooked to perfection. There are some unusual items e.g. chicken hearts which I would not usually pick but in this restaurant was able to try and enjoyed a lot. I will definitely be visiting again and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

    Took my husband as a surprise for his 60th birthday, it was quiet on a Wednesday evening and we're were seated straight away despite being 20minutes early, the food was excellent especially the lamb and the choice on the buffet was very good, the staff were very attentive and sang happy birthday with a candle in a cake, It would be good to go in a group, the large one on the next table seemed to be having a whale of a time ! Overall a different experience if a little pricy and as I am not a big eater, I couldn't quite do it justice although my husband had a good go!

    First time to this place and went on a Tuesday so it was quite quiet. The staff were very friendly and service on drinks was fairly quick. Good selection on the buffet although not all the hot food was as 'hot' as it should have been. The waiter with the meat skewers came round regularly and the meat was tasty and juicy. Overall we had a pleasant evening.

    The meat was of good quality and great taste, however the buffet was not fancy enough for the price. The service was excellent. The restaurant definitely has to improve its ambiance, especially for the price we paid.

    Have heard only good things about this restraunt so finally decided to treat ourselves. Quite pricey but a great selection of food. The waiters bringing round the barbequed meats of which there was a large selection were pretty constant. Shame about the waitresses not being as attentive. Spent a lot of the time chatting so couldn't get their attention for quite a while when I required another drink. All in all though a nice change to our usual style meal out, very tasty buffet, fantastic meat selection and good atmosphere.

    Loved this restaurant! Great buffet, great fries, the meat was lovely and a good variety, pleasant and polite servers. We ate so much we literally couldn't eat anymore! The cocktails and beer were also excellent. They also had a great dessert menu although we couldn't manage a desert as well after the meat mountain!

    Both the cold and hot buffet are great but the real "meat" of the meal (if you'll pardon the pun) is when they bring round different meats on skewers and offer them table to table. All the meat is fantastic and it's all you can eat. It's a culinary wonder to mix a beautifully chilled pint of Brahma, with tender, succulent meat and perfectly ripe pineapple with what I suspect is a coating of brown sugar and cinnamon. It's heaven.

Only thing missing was some authentic music (although it was during the World Cup and Brazil were playing a match so the TV's we're blaring so maybe different next time!)

    I had never heard of Bem Brasil so didnt know what to expect. The food was plentiful and fresh and the meats that came around really tasty and a good range. A couple of our party went a bit overboard on the salads but I didnt has I wanted to experience all that the restraunt had to offer. I would definately go again but would not nessesarily choose it as an event meal. We went at 3.30pm for a early tea/late brunch and that is what we would do again.

    Tried Bem Brasil after having a great time in Viva Brasil Cardiff. Not disappointed, Viva Brasil had the edge, greater variety of meats, but cannot complain too much. The cocktails are really, really good. Probably had too many, but the Caipirinas are just too good to turn down. Seen othr comments about the meat being salty, and some cuts were overly seasoned, but again, it did not overly detract from the evening as a whole.

    My first time here and I will definitely be back. You can help yourself to as much salad, pasta, rice etc and then different meats are brought to and carved at your table, 17 different ones in total. Good if you like a pick of different tastes rather than one set meal. Nice relaxed atmosphere, attentive staff, good value for money, easy parking 5*****
