Have not eaten at this restaurant for a couple of years, but it's still good. Service was attentive and friendly. The food was good. Two slight reservations that prevent me making this a 5 star evaluation: the steaks were ordered as medium, medium rare and rare and they were all cooked about the same, the rare wasn't rare enough and...

Stylish restaurant, amazing food and great service. And " Striploin Mayura Station Signature Wagyu Beef " was excellent ! Very high fat marbling 12+ Grain fed 600+ days, so rich, so tasty, so tender just like a real Japanese Wagyu beef in Japan ... Wow factor ! Very small size 150g and $110 ! But this is all about quality.... More

Traditionally a steak restaurant I have found the alternatives excellent. My spatchcock with oyster Szechwan sauce was absolutely delicious. Service was great & the guys really enjoyed the steaks.

Great food; every main and every entree was just superb. Three of us dined here together and not one of us was not impressed by the meals we ordered. Decently broad menu and good drinks on offer too. Exceptionally friendly and attentive service. Bit on the pricey side but worth it.

My wife and I made our first long awaited visit to Cha Cha Char on Saturday and one we've been looking forward to for months, that had been delayed because of work and family commitments. The service was excellent and our waiter knowledgeable where the menu and wine list were concerned and who couldn't be more attentive to our needs.... More

A modern steakhouse, that has large windows. It feels a bit bright and the glass, stone and tile, give the space a bit of a cold feeling. My meal was good. Steak was a bit too peppery for my taste, but the cut was good. I really enjoyed the mashed potatoes. The wine selection is excellent. The service had a... More

What a fabulous evening. Firstly- you cannot falter location. The riverside is incredible. Secondly- the service was impeccable. Then the food... good heavens. As a table of 6, we shared a lot and I can recommend almost everything. I had the wague spring rolls starter, but also tasted the squid and ceviche. For main, I had the spiced rubbed steak... More

This is an restaurant for meat lovers. Lunch with partner, two courses each, both excellent. Fantastic wine list, ranging from mid range to fantastically expensive. We had a lovely merlot. Nice table near window. Friendly service, pacing spot on. One negative this time was no dessert or coffee offered but would do again regardless.

Description
Cha Cha Char Wine Bar & Grill is a stylish, contemporary restaurant specialising in high quality, cooked-to-perfection steaks.On our menu you'll find plenty of information - the breed, paddock address, age (12 months to 30 months and older), size (200g to 600g), accompaniments and diet (grass fed/grain fed) as well as snapshots of rare, medium rare, medium and well done steaks to help diners with their preferences.It's harder than you think to get a great steak onto a plate - there are so many variables. Restaurateur John Kilroy is a nationally recognised beef judge and is constantly showcasing products to the hospitality industry where discussions range from the breed of cattle, feed type and age of the carcass. His wide recognition throughout the beef industry means that we receive first class products on a consistent basis, year round. John sources the beef direct from producers and suppliers and ages it for five weeks, giving diners a chance to taste different breeds, brands and regions. That's why it's Brisbane's signature steak restaurant!
