  • $65/person, seriously! i’d rather go to chima all you can get brazil steak for $50.

    • +100%. Their steaks are so awesome that I don’t even care if it’s called Chima, Japam or even Vietmam.

  • Their multi-course duck dinner a couple months ago was amazing and worth every penny. I’m sorry I’ll have to miss this one.

  • Awesome! Except it sold out yesterday, according to their twitter feed.

  • well that’s no love lost… those were the worst, most undercooked noodles and tasteless broth i’ve ever had. and we were starving after a 3 hour wait (even though we had a reservation on a tuesday night) and then the service was awful to boot. it’s too bad we brought a korean friend who was in town cuz he got up and left it was so bad! i wouldn’t pay $10 for that crap.. $65 is laughable!

    • Sounds suspect, they don’t take reservations except for very rare, special events like this one.

      I’ve only eaten there once but I loved it and was surprised that I thought it lived up the hype.

  • that price point is absurd.
