I've been twice in this place already and it is all because the steak is excellent!! My only advice is to go really hungry or having small breaks through your dinner, however all through and through the service and ambience is great, the salad buffet is vast and fresh. Being latino, one must feel grateful to have places with this... More

If you are a meat lover this is a must. But beware, for best value starve yourself in the day as the meat just keeps on coming until you say stop.

Went for dinner tonight with a couple of my friends. Had made reservations yesterday where I was asked if I had any special requests to which I informed them I needed a baby chair and that it was my husbands birthday so if they could do a small slice of cake or something as a gesture. Upon arriving we were... More

Chamas in Abu Dhabi has a lot positive things to say about: the meat wich is their specialty is just so good that you will hardly experience better quality in your life. Service is nice as waiters walk around tables and slice the meats in front of each guest. So on the food level I would say that my experience... More

Been here a couple of times and the food has always been delicious. Chamas is much more upmarket than your average churrascaria and this is reflected in the price. They have a good wine list but as you'd expect, very expensive. This would be a great place to come with friends or on a date. Bear in mind it's easy... More

During our stay at the Intercontinental hotel in Abu Dhabi, we were fortunate enough to decide to dine at Chamas . Not only were the food and drinks delicious, the Brazilian band and dancers entertaining, the service we received from our waiter Vivek Soni was above and beyond our expectations. Nothing was too much trouble. He was a great conversationist,... More

I was very disappointed in the quality of food as well as the entire layout for the Brunch Buffet served at this restaurant in Abu Dhabi. Having had an absolutely marvelous experience with a buffet at Nahaam in Jumeirah in Ethad Towers; this brunch was absolutely lousy, sorry no better words to say. If in Abu Dhabi and looking for...

Readers -- here's a suggestion gleamed from many years of being married: Don't go out to restaurants ON Valentine's Day, February 14th. Go days before or days after the date, and you will have a much cheaper and more enjoyable time. Restaurants raise their prices on the date and reservations are very hard to come by on short notice.
