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.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "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!"
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "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."

  • "Not the cheapest place but, as a treat I highly recommend! Food and service are completely faultless! We will definitely visit again! 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!)"

  • "Good food, if a bit on the expensive side. Service really quite slow unfortunately, had to ask 3 different people for a jug of water!"
    dined on 23/06/2014
  • "The food was great and plentiful. The service was also good with someone always bringing a fresh cut of meat. the variety of the meat was first class and I finished by eating chicken hearts. Nice"

  • "We were three friends, we had a nice dinner, great food, very friendly staff, we celebrated the birthday of Raffaela, an unforgettable evening"

  • "As always Bem Brasil was excellent. You really do feel looked after from the moment you step through the doors. The food is superb as was the service throughout. And the fact it is, of course, all you can eat means there is zero chance of leaving hungry. "

  • "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."
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "Literally everything was great and you try like 15 different things from steak to pineapple, to gammon, back to lasagne, over to beef....you get the idea They will literally bring food faster than you can eat it."
    dined on 18/05/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 04/05/2014
  • "We were seated quickly and the servers were very efficient. The food was really tasty and kept on coming, from lamb to steak and even cinnamon pineapple. The choice extensive and well cooked. The salad bar was always topped up and fresh. Would definitely recommend Bem Brasil "

  • "Took hubby am two friends for a treat they loved it an we ate too much "
    dined on 26/04/2014
  • "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*****"

  • "We went as a group of 4 people to the Bem Brazil, Northern Quarters on Easter Sunday and the atmosphere was casual as there were not too many people in the restaurant. The service was friendly although they forgot several times our order for drinks. However this was not too disturbing too much. The food was very delicious, especially the meat was very nice. The grilled meat seasoned with garlic or chilli was our favorite. I would also recommend to taste the different caipirinha they offer. Every single one we ordered was very delicious."

  • "The meal I had at bem brazil was first class I will definitely be dinning at bem brazil again and I will be recommending it to family and friends."

  • "Came to Bem Brazil for motherday. Had to ask for the free champagne stated on the mothersday offer, this should have been offered. Found it difficult to order drinks we had to go to the bar most times. Food is excellent and lots of things to choose from. Had a great evening. Would go again and recommend to others."

  • "Visited for my Som's birthday & it was very relaxing. Thank you"
    dined on 16/03/2014
  • "Both Manchester restaurants were fully booked on the Saturday night so we booked for Sunday lunchtime. Still an amazing choice of meats as well as the salad bar and other hot dishes. My son has an amazing appetite but he had to concede after the 12th visit by the waiter! Amazing value for money and highly recommended. My only disappointment is there are no Bem Brazil restaurants in Bristol!!"
    dined on 16/03/2014
  • "Visited Bem Brasil at Deansgate but this was my first trip to the one at the Northern quarter. Food as always is very good although my only gripe was that we had to wait until the very end of our meal to get any of the garlic steak/fillet. I think they over looked us a couple of times because we were a table of 2 and in the corner. This isnt always a bad thing though as it gave us more time to talk without continually being interrupted. Service from the staff is always polite and curteous and they seem genuinely interested. I really liked the feel of this restaraunt compared to Deansgate as it was alot more intimate with a great party feel!"
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "We wanted to try Bem Brasil as we thought it sounded like a novel dining experience. I have been to Bufalo Grill when I was in brasil and really enjoyed it ! Bem Brasil have very good service and the atmosphere was good along with the welcome. Our biggest criticism would be the price, dining at 5pm we paid the full price and works out expensive when it's basically one course. I would recommend booking an earlier time in the day as the menu is half price and represents better value."

  • "On my 1st visit i found the food was out of this world Amazing friendly staff excelent service 5 star all round Cant wait to go again"

  • "Outstanding service made my daughters birthday speacial staff really went out of their way at the end to all sing happy birthday."
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "Seriously no laxk of meat in this place! The food was delicious and the servers brought thr meat around often. Your plate wasn't left empty for long. The waitresses did take a while to come around for more drinks and longer for the bill but it wasn't horrible. Also, we went during the super Saturday deal which made the meal only £13.95. An absolute bargain! Looking forward to our next trip there for sure."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "I have already been to a Bem Brasil on business ( the Liverpool one). I enjoyed it so much I decided to take the whole family at the next opportunity but was very disappointed. The difference was that my previous trip was on a very busy evening and as a result the bbq meat was very fresh and succulent. This time I went on a quiet Sunday lunch time and the meat was very dry and over cooked - I got the impression that it was the rewarmed meat from the previous evening. I would thus recommend you go in the evening (and pay a bit extra) and the meat will be freshly cooked"
    dined on 16/02/2014
  • "Very attentive friendly staff who respond to request. They made a birthday celebration nice by adding balloons and confetti to the table with an offer of bringing out a piece of cake with a candle in it! Amazing food very tasty lots to try will definitely return!!"

  • "Food is really nice, the service is great, the staff very friendly and attentive. It does worth it!"
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "It was my first time at Bem Brasil and I was very impressed. The food was amazing but I would just say that some of the food on the buffet could of been a bit warmer. All the meat was very tasty and you never had to wait long for some meat as the waiter's were constantly coming round. Very impressed. All the staff were very friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was very nice. I can't wait to go again and might actually take my mum this weekend"
    dined on 25/01/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our whole experience at Bem Brasil. The ambience is lovely with live music, the service impeccable and the food delicious. With one glass of wine and two soft drinks the bill came to over £100 for three people so a bit pricey but all round it was a special experience. No regrets."
    dined on 21/01/2014
  • "The welcome was warm and the food and service were excellent. The staff seemed happy to help at all times. The restaurant was not even half full however and it affected the ambience. On a Saturday evening we wanted to be in a busy bustling restaurant. I also felt quite cold throughout. The cleanliness could be improved. By all means this wasn't a problem, and it wouldn't stop me from dining here in the future but I did notice one or two bits of food on the floor around our table. Would definitely go back. I think it's excellent value and good quality. Just hope the atmosphere is a little better next time."
    dined on 11/01/2014
  • "Went to bem brasil on a Thursday night. When the meat was coming out they was running out on the table before us so we ended up getting full off the help your self sides which is definitely not worth £26. Been bem brasil before at lunch and service was brill and was about £14. Won't be returning as I felt ripped off at paying £26 for abit of salad, chips and a small piece of steak and cheese!!"
    dined on 09/01/2014
  • "I love Bem Brasil, always good! Meat was overdone this time for my liking and even when we asked for it rare we was told they had to cut from the outside! A bit of a let down compared to all the other times I've visited! Highly recommended for meat lovers!"
    dined on 06/01/2014
  • "This is not the first time and most certainly will not be the last time we eat at this fantastic restaurant. Had a great night with family and friends.Thanks for a great night once again."
    dined on 04/01/2014
  • "We are regulars to the northern quarter bem Brasil the staff are fantastic, friendly, helpful and great with our little boy, the choice if food is great and the pineapple is to die for, never had a bad thing to day about the place and for the amount of food toy get the price is very reasonable."

  • "After wanting to go to BB for a while I finally booked a table for new yrs eve 2013. It was £45 per person which was a bit expensive but it was New Year's Eve so I didn't mind. The best way to describe BB is like a brasilan style carvery where instead of the usual uk roast dinner options you get to choose from a seemingly endless choice of excellent quality meats, cooked in various styles and brought to your table. There was a large spread of sides which you could go to any time and as long as your card was on green for 'go', the waiters would keep bring you different cuts of meat. Would highly recommend to others, just make sure you've not got anything strenuous planned afterwards! Thanks for a great night!"
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "Excellent value for money. The quality of the meat is very good with good alternative salad and vegetables."
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "After being recommended Bem Brasil by friends, we eventually decided to try it for ourselves. We were not disappointed. A fabulous selection of meats and buffet food throughout the two hours we were there. We were never made to feel like we were being rushed either which is what I thought would happen. I think on our next visit though we will have to deprive ourselves of food at least 24 hours before in order to sample all the delicious food!! Excellent place!"
    dined on 28/12/2013
  • "We arrived early on a cold and wet night, to eat before a concert in Manchester and were greeted with friendly smiles. It was a little quiet as it was early, but filled up later on. Buffet was well stocked with a great choice and then the skewers of meat started arriving. Great quality cuts, with the skirt and rump steak standing out, plus the lovely pineapple giving a nice taste change. The chocolate fountain to end the meal is a nice idea. Great value and service. We will be back!"
