Food is great, salads are good, service is amazing. It is a perfect place for meat eaters! All beef and duck cuts are served. I liked the fried cassava so much. Would love to go as soon as I can.

I have been here a number of times and always come out more than fully satiated, sometimes a wee bit too much. Chamas is a South American style meat restaurant that serves various delicious cuts of meat, directly to your table by gentlemen who carve the pieces directly onto your plate, or that you grab hold of with the supplied...

Chamas is amazing steakhouse that serve authentic brazilian food Similar to other brazilian steakhouses, the mechanism of the Traffic Light Signal applies with one side green and the other red. When you turn the coaster to green, waiters will start serving food and when you turn it to red - then waiters will stop feeding you. I feel the salad... More

Oh my god, where to start. This is my favorite restaurant, I have been to chammas plenty of times and the taste is still great. There are plenty of choices, my favorite are ribs and finishing up with pineapple, maybe having some more ribs after that :)

All the food was so delicious, but I was most impressed with the staff. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, and we had our 8 year old son with us. In my experience, most fine dining places do not cater as well to children, but that is definitely not the case at Chamas. All the staff were so... More

had dinner there twice over the past weeks, thinking the 1st time that they just had a "glitch" that night.. unfortunately that was not the case. both dinners were far below Abu Dhabi average and a far cry from the Chamas used to be some years back. in summary: if you want to have high quality meat, stay away from...

Really amazing churrascaria! Great stuff. Liked the salad bar. And the choice of meats although not so prime were sufficient and good. The best part of the meal were the grilled pineapples in the end. Highly recommended.

Another great steak and beef restaurant in Abu Dhabi! Here we have a perfect example of how to serve a Brazilian meal with flair and style. This dinnertime meal is regularly served as a "buffet", but this buffet comes to you at your table by servers wielding skewers with perfectly prepared choices of steak and chicken. All of the meat...

It's been seven years I live in Abu Dhabi with my family and Chamas is a must go restaurant at least once in every two or three months. The picanha meat is as delicious as it's in Brazil. The salad buffet has it's original Brazilian taste and style. Love the Brazilian mayonnaise and Salpicao de Frango. The Chef is one... More
