All the food was tastefully done. The Cowboys brought the food very quickly.

The one negative had to do with the virus. We had to choose the salads from about 10 feet away which was awkward

We had a great night out without the kids. We had great service, I enjoyed that they asked us if there is any meats we want to come over first. We requested the top sirloin , bacon wrapped filet And the cinnamon pineapple. We absolutely love the experience we have when we come to Chima Philadelphia.

We were nervous because of Covid restrictions but Chima handled it well! There was hand sanitizer everywhere and someone to serve you at the salad bar. Christian our server was amazing as well as the others checking on us frequently to make sure we had everything we needed. Food was excellent! Drinks on point! One of our faves for special occasions.

Had a great dinning experience. Servers came frequently with different cuts of meat. Ask for ribeye and they put some on the grill for us as that cut we had not received in this visit or our previous week’s visit. Beef ribs were great. As well as salmon and filet.

Great food, calm & cool environment! Great spacing especially with the pandemic and it’s nicer to have someone make your salad at the salad bar rather you making it yourself or someone mixing things.

Shrimp had the shells on hard to get off. My husband loved all of it. I think all the steak very salty and spicy.

The food and service is always excellent. They have creatively addressed the Covid requirements by limiting to parties of 4, tables spaces out and a salad bar where a server gets your selections for you.

It was good to get out for a change after not able to do anything for months. The tables were spaced following social distancing guidelines and the wait staff wore both masks and face shields making for the safest environment possible!

Chima never disappoints. The service and food was exceptional as always. This is my first time dining there since Covid and I wondered how they would adjust because of the buffet style salad bar. They took every precaution that most restaurants in the area have taken except for a temperature check. However, all silverware was wrapped in plastic the salad bar was covered, and instead of everyone getting their own food you just told the server what you wanted and they plated it for you. I really appreciated that. Everyone wore masks and face shields. I felt safe dining there. Other than that, as I stated, the service was just as exceptional as I remember, the food was excellent and I left satisfied! One of my favorite restaurants in Philly.

I frequent Chima's at least 3 times a year. I was so excited when I heard they were open for dine in. My only disappointment was the salad bar. Not being able to get my own food but I fully understood. Also one of my favorite dishes wasn't available the rice. I was there to celebrate my sisters one birthday and the other passed her real estate exam. I missed the hostesses giving out the coupons that they were giving out when customers were leaving. I am planning to come back next month another celebration.
