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. The restaurant manger Arif and his team are very attentive and provide above and beyond in their service to... More

Marked and steady decline in the level of service and food with each new visit An obvious Stinginess in the amount of food provided with intentional and shameless disregard for the customers requests I would not advise to visit him anymore

Second visit to this restaurant. Great for meat eaters. You help yourself to a buffet (no meat) and then when you are ready for meat you turn your coaster from the red side to the green side and servers will bring the meat to you. Beautiful, tender beef, lamb, chicken, duck, sausages and pineapple. I would recommend you try it... More

The perfect place to eat meat! Fix price for an all you can eat meat experience. All is regulated by green and red cards on your table. As long you keep the green up... You have to eat! Quality is on the high side. Good buffet for side dishes, wine will keep the bill up, but if you can manage... More

Wonderful if you like your meat! Great setting and a wonderful selection of meats here and you can keep on eating so good value if you are a big eater, expensive If you aren't. I would recommend this for guys and also for big groups. I am not sure I would say this was the number one restaurant for couples,... More

A pretty authentic Brazilian churasceria with very good atmosphere and average service. Have eaten here several times over recent years and prices have increased quite a lot, perhaps reflecting it's popularity. The meat and salad bar are still very good, but watch out for the prices of drinks. The cheapest bottle of water is almost USD20 which is a rip... More

We had high hopes of this restaurant having eaten at similar places elsewhere. When we arrived the place was almost full and buzzing. We were quite early but our request for a table was accepted without any fuss, and in fact we changed tables as the first wasn't very good. The atmosphere was frenetic, with service from the meat servers... More

I booked a table for 1 at the Friday brunch. I asked for a table outside when arriving and was offered an excellent large table, with views of the marina. The weather was a balmy 24 degrees, so sitting out was lovely. The brunch is split between this and the yacht club and there was plenty of food choices and... More

Chamas is located at the Intercontinental Hotel not far from the Emirates palace. This is the 3rd time I go there, in fact I go ounce a year and this restaurant is still a reference. Only one menu: the Brazilian Churrascarias (a kind of sword on which the meat pieces are piled and grilled). There is a buffet for entries... More

Nice interiors, dark, cozy, very Brazilian!We are meat lovers so we are fans of Churrascarias around Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paolo, and Salvador bahia, everytime we go to Brazil. This place captures the colors of Samba through its wide selection of grilled meats, salads, and not to mention the chandeliers! You'll get what you paid for, ambience, great food and... More
