About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Since November 30th 2007 Braza Churrascaria is one of the most popular restaurants in Leichhardt.
It was the very first Brazilian restaurant to bring the true concept of churrasco to Australia. Patrons can simply sit back, relax and enjoy while passadores (meat carvers) rotate from table to table slicing different cuts of tender meat onto your plate.

If you are considering Braza than I recommend you go to darling harbour. Some of the meat we tasted was so bad it tasted off. Didn’t get offered all of the meats that are listed on their menu. Kept getting hit by the waiter as they walked past as the tables were too close. Not impressed and for the money you pay it’s not worth it at all.

Service was amazing. I’m pregnant and I can’t eat any raw meat and staff asked chef to cook it well done just for me even I didn’t ask staff it was staff’s offer which was very kind.
All staffs were friendly and we had a very nice dinner!
I will definitely come back !

We have been there 4 times and we were very happy. Last time the food was terrible. Most of the meat was raw and the blood was running. They should change chef urgently. Since it is a Brazilian restaurant you expect to see Brazilian chefs.

We have been to Braza before but service this time, you could not falter it. We arrived a little early & they seated us straight away. The food started arriving before we even got our drinks. The food was amazing and plentiful, and the dessert at the end was new and delicious. We booked for 8 pm which is a better time, no rushing you out in order to get the next table set. Braza is an awesome place for meat lovers but I notice they now have a vegetarian option. Cannot wait to go there again.

Most likely won’t be returning, we’ve gone to braza over 50 times in the past 5 years , but after this experience I don’t think we would ever go back. It’s not a cheap meal at all. Not worth spending the top dollar. I was really considering walking out and not paying.When we got the drinks they were horrible, pisco sour, se on the beach and the braza mock tail, not even strain through, they had all the leftover. waste of money, waitress wouldn’t even come with the sides that we were waiting on for half an hour, there was a large family that was just yelling and screaming, that’s fine for the restaurant but not for family that was trying to relax, their kids were coming over to my table and touching all of our stuff and waitresses wouldn’t care...
the food is delicious no doubt, but it wasn’t enjoyable.

I love coming to this place. When my local Brazilian buffet closed down in Petersham, I didn’t think I could ever find something as good. In fact - I found something even better! The sides are brought to your table, the complimentary cheese bread is tasty, the supply of meats and other foods is ongoing and they also offer to bring more servings of foods you enjoyed earlier. I definitely enjoy skipping meals on the days where I dine here, I love to try all the different dishes for maximum flavour experiences.

Have been to Braza so many times at Leichhardt but I had never thought about bringing my 6 year old son with me. We went the for dinner just mother and son and it was amazing. The staff treated him so well, asked him if he wanted the meat just like the ask the adults. And a bonus, they have a kids price for the set menu which I didn’t know about! Amazing, and always worth it !

Waste of money. It was so expensive so of course we expected great deal of food. Half the meats were not brought around and we waited 20 minutes for drink service. Asked for a lemonade and got soda water. Asked 6 times for a particular meat and we never received. Other people who came after us got their drinks first. Server dropped hot meat on my husbands leg which burnt and didn’t apologise. Absolute waste of money and it was for a birthday so pretty disappointed.

Very greasy / oily salads and vegetarian options and quite expensive for what it is. And then there is no BYO option either so you end up overpaying for an average bottle of wine. Service was great though, so thank you! Overall, Unlikely to come back.

Me and my boyfriend went on a Saturday night and because there was just the 2 of us we felt as though we were overlooked by some of the other customers who was in large groups. We would either be served last or we would just get walked past. Majority of the meats were over cooked. It’s a shame because we have been to the restaurant at darling harbour and have experienced excellent service and expected the same in Leichhardt, which unfortunately wasn’t the case.

This is a Brazilian meat restaurant. The meat is cooked very well and the waiters serving the meat were good. However, the waitress staff dealing with all other aspects of service were woeful. We had to ask FOUR times for water for the table and THREE times for a side dish. Would I go back - probably but never on a Saturday night.

The food was amazing. The lights are a big bright and there are too many tables fit in which makes moving around the restaurant to the bathrooms and leaving/arriving a little difficult, especially as the tables get full. Very good value for money.

My friend's parents were trying Brazilian food for the first time, so they decided to order a la carte instead of the "all you can eat barbecue" that the rest of us had. What we didn't expect was that the staff would treat my friend's parents, a lovely elderly couple, just like children with no selfcontrol by asking them to seat in a different table. Not to mention that the restaurant was almost empty and they could easily "monitor us to not share anything with them" if that was the stupid concern. I felt extremely disappointed and embarrased as I was the one who picked the restaurant. I have never experienced something like that in any "all you can eat" restaurant, even when I was in Brazil. There is no point in serving a delicious food if you don't manage to treat your clients with respect.
