The top 5 Brazilian restaurants in Toronto

Brazilian restaurants in Toronto are home to some of the tastiest meat around. Any AYCE is good, but for meat lovers, Brazilian rodizio is straight up heaven. If the word churrascaria makes you hungry, these spots are for you. 

Here are my picks for the top Brazilian restaurants in Toronto. 

Samba Brazil Eatery

The main specialty at this restaurant with locations on St. Clair West and near Yonge & Dundas is a wide range of pastels, rectangular deep-fried thin crust filled pies, though they also offer a range of sandwiches and burgers.

Rio 40

This St. Clair West mainstay has been a longtime favourite for thick cuts of Brazilian steak. It's upscale-meets-casual here, perfect for the family since the portions are huge for the amount you pay.

Sabor Brasil

A Corso Italia staple, the menu here is the perfect selection of classics, with items like juicy picanha with rice and linguica: Brazilian sausage. It's super cozy, leaning toward old school, but you know it's good because Brazilian people actually eat here.

Uai Pizzeria

The St. Clair West restaurant serves Brazilian takes on pizza. Burgers, skewers and traditional lunches can also be found on the menu.

Brasileirissimo Steak House

Get your steak covered in everything from onions to cheese at this restaurant located on Dundas West. If steak isn't your thing they have a whole slew of other grilled offerings available on the menu.
