The variety of meat, quality and service and the salad bar was adorable, but I always look forward to having the black beans (feijoada).

Great service by Vivek. The grilled pineapple was amazing. It was the highlight of the meal. Also the food was very good. Typical Brazilian steakhouse fare that you would find at Fogo de Chao or somewhere similar. They have some unique meats such as lamb, etc. I thought the salad bar was really good, and had some great items. The... More

We LOVE going to brunch at the Intercontinental hotel. Chamas is the best place even with a big group and a couple of babies. The food is amazing, and the service, especially Anu, is fantastic. We are always well taken care of from the moment we walk in, until we roll out. Brunch is an institution in Abu Dhabi, and... More

I thought it was important to highlight the exceptional service me my colleagues and I had from the manager Arif and all his team during our visit to this restaurant. The food is always fresh with an amazing selection to wet anyone's appetite. The atmosphere with the live band and dancers in a Brazalian theme is an added bonus. Highly... More

When we get together in a large group of friends, our favorite destination for dinner is always Chamas at the Intercontinental hotel in Abu Dhabi. The atmosphere is always buzzing with a live band and the Brazilian style food served straight to your table is also a wow factor. My friends are always amazed by the high quality of service...

Rcently i repeatedly visited one of my favorite restaurants at the Intercontinental in Abu Dhabi called Chamas. My guests from all over Europe and the Middle East were completely blown away by the Brazilian concept of serving hot food in rotation at the table. I would like to thank the restaurant manager Peter and his assistant Arif as well as... More

This restaurant is part of the Intercontinental and we visited one evening, you basically have your salad and sides and you have a drinks mat either green side or red - if you have green side up then the meat keeps coming - all types, all cuts - and its wonderful !! ( although I would say that it probably... More

Wow...what a fantastic experience. Went out for a meal with 5 other colleagues from work and this is my favorite restaurant in Abu Dhabi. Brazilian style, super atmosphere, great experience, food, service and the live band is a great back drop.
