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
  • "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."
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!!"
    dined on 29/01/2014
  • "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"

  • "Food is really nice, the service is great, the staff very friendly and attentive. It does worth it!"
    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
  • "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."
    dined on 04/01/2014
  • "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
  • "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!"
    dined on 18/12/2013
  • "This my 3rd visit to Bem Brazil and every time I go I come away disappointed and then forget why and try again. Because I think.......... what's not to love when it's unlimited meat. But it is poor really for what you pay. The meat is way too salty and payinh £27 for a buffet is so expensive. You'd pay less than that for a good quality steak with good quality sides in one of Manchester's top restaurants. It's ok for a gimmick and something a bit different. But not for that price. It needs bringing down to the usual buffet prices people pay of around £10 - £15 for me to consider it again."
    dined on 17/12/2013
  • "We were there for my friend's birthday and the team made her feel really special - thank you so much guys!"
    dined on 17/12/2013
  • "We visited here on a Friday lunch time 6th dec. I booked this as a suprise for my partners birthday. I booked online and was amazed with the food, it was the best tasting meat that we have had. I must admit that I was very disappointed with the price! I booked online and the price list stated £16 per head. Once we had been seated an ordered drinks I was informed that it was £22.50 per head because it was a Christmas menu! At this point it was a little difficult to leave!The only thing Christmas I noticed was a bowl of sprouts! Very expensive for a Friday lunch time!"
    dined on 06/12/2013
  • "The outside presentation of the restaurant, at the end of Lever Street, does not reflect the quality, style, ambience and the warm welcome you receive once inside the restaurant. Spotlessly clean, good service and a good selection of self service compliments at the deli bar made for a very enjoyable meat feast."
    dined on 06/12/2013
  • "Great food. Drinks a bit expensive and no sparkling wines on the menu. The pudding list was a bit limited but all in all a fantastic meal, if a little expensive."
    dined on 05/12/2013
  • "Friendly staff who offered an excellent standard of service. Meats were cooked to perfection. Pineapple was beautiful. Good range of salads. Wine was expensive, but seemed to be the going rate for Manchester."
    dined on 02/12/2013
  • "I took my son as a treat before going to a show. While the meat was nice it wasn't worth the £40 per person we were charged. We arrived at 5.02pm so just indie their evening meal time. It also turned out that although it was the last weekend of November that this was their Christmas menu. I couldn't tell the difference to the normal one. The place was pretty empty and the drinks service was slow. It would have been nice to tell us before we sat down about the hefty price we were about to face."
    dined on 30/11/2013
  • "The venue was nice, the service was good and attentive, but I don' t think the meal is worth the amount of money paid. The food station in the middle, which you basically have to create some meal from didn't have a lot of choice and the food wasn't very warm. You do get a wide selection of meat to choose from but can be overwhelming and for most you can't just sit and eat meat as a meal. It was disappointing , but at least we tried. It was £27 fixed per person here, so great if your a meat junkie. otherwise, i'd pass."
    dined on 01/12/2013
  • "Food was outstanding and the service was superb. The drinks are abit pricey but was expected from a buffet place."
    dined on 01/12/2013
  • "great food and very friendly helpful staff I will be booking again soon"
    dined on 29/11/2013
  • "We were recommended by friends to try this restaurant and it did not fail to impress. Plenty of food from the buffet and great choice and good selection of meats carved at the table. It was good that you could choose how your meat was cooked when brought to the table. We were given discs to turn to red when we did not want any more meat for a while and green when we were ready for more. We seemed to get offered more regardless - but we didn't complain - great service and would definately recommend."
    dined on 24/11/2013
  • "Excellent restaurant for meat eaters! There is an unlimited supply of very good quality meat (for 24£/person) and you can be sure to leave with an extra full stomach!"
    dined on 24/11/2013
  • "I've visited Ben Brasil Northern Quarter several times. It looks a bit dowdy from the outside but inside it is comfortable and the food and service is excellent. It's a rodizio style with different kinds of meat on offer from a waiter who cuts the meat from a bbq spit at your table. Always tasty and there is as much as you want, supported by an excellent self-service buffet in the middle of the restaurant.Good value and nice atmosphere. Highly recommended."
    dined on 17/11/2013
  • "Food was over cooked and very salty. Service was very intermittent. Poor value. On the whole very disappointing."

  • "Steak was particularly nice and lets not forget the pineapple and cinnamon - very tasty"
    dined on 16/09/2013
  • "We went along with family, some of which can be picky eaters, but we need not have worried, becuase they all found something they really liked and we had a wonderful evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant."
