BRAZA CHURRASCARIA - DARLING HARBOUR
Sydney, NSW

It's time to get hot with Braza Brazilian BBQ House. Bop to upbeat Latin music whilst sampling Brazil's national spirit cachaca and then head to the dining room to start on a smorgasbord of premium meat infused with spicy Latin flavours and traditional Brazilian side dishes. You'll notice stoppers on your table - they look like salt shakers. Turn the green side up when you want the wait staff to keep coming with meat skewers. Show the red when you're full up!

DETAILS
Braza is one of the most typical Brazilian restaurants you will find in Australia, designed to bring the Brazilian Beach environment close to you. All meats and side dishes are carefully prepared to bring you the perfect real Brazilian Barbecue experience. The Bar, inspired by one of the most popular places in Rio de Janeiro (Lapa) takes its name, Braza Lapa Bar, which is an attraction not to be missed - presenting the first Cacha├ža Bar in Australia (Original Brazilian Spirit made of Sugar Cane), a selection of more than 80 types of beers and up to 160 types of wines - everything followed by a delicious Bar menu, which was made to match perfectly with this variety of drinks. It's a good option for those, who are just walking around Darling Harbour and are simply after a relaxing time.
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
If you're expecting a carnivorous meat fest, Braza Churrascaria is not your restaurant. Sophisticated and suave, this Brazilian restaurant takes the quintessential South American barbecue to elegant heights. Located in Darling Quarter, the restaurant's mood is upbeat, its ambience casually elegant and friendly, its decor warmly minimalist. Since this is definitely not the kind of dining to rush through, if you're planning to eat before an event at the nearby Sydney Entertainment Centre, reserve a table early. Better yet, see the show tomorrow and make Braza Churrascaria the centrepiece of your evening's entertainment.

If you're keen to get your iron levels up, opt for the traditional churrasco where diners can sample a range of wood fire and charcoal rotisserie grilled meats for $47; including a range of side dishes. Here, waiters rove the floor, each with a metre-long skewer or a big plate holding a succulent seafood offering. Flip the little wooden totem at the edge of your table to its green side, and they stop at your table and carve as you neatly pluck off the pieces with a pair of tongs. They don't stop coming (chicken hearts, beef rib, pork belly, lamb leg, cheese, pineapple) until you turn your indicator back to red. The traditional churrasco is great for groups, especially with live entertainment on Saturday nights. However for those who would prefer something less meat-focused, Braza also offers a more-than-pleasing a la carte menu. An entree of spit-roasted BBQ prawns sits atop of confit garlic mash with a fresh gremolata while hiramasa kingfish carpaccio takes a Brazilian twist with the addition of wild chilli. A generous fillet of barramundi is served with an Asian-inspired broth of king brown mushrooms, coriander and soy and the pork ribs are finger-licking tasty. For large groups, families or a romantic dinner-for-two, Braza Churrascaria has a little something for everyone.

Very disappointed with the lack of flexibility on the evening menu with only the all you can eat option on offer.
