this is a brazian restaraunt . You have red/green coasters that indicate to the passadors that you want feeding.Good selection of meats, salads and sides. We drank caiparinhas and the barman gave demos on how they are made. There was a samba band playing when we went , adding to a great atmosphere

We had been planning for a while to visit this restaurant as it has a really good reputation. The venue itself is beautiful with a live band and a very pleasant atmosphere. The servers were polite and initially attentive. It must be know that restaurant service, based on our experience, all but shut down after 10pm which really surprised us.... More

I went there after a friend informed that it is somewhat on the lines of the famous "Carnivore" restaurant in Nairobi, Kenya. What a let down! Very poor choice of meats. Almost non-existent marination. Way over-priced. They should straight away slash cost by 50%. The red wine we ordered was some abso cheapo type. And priced at champagne level. Avoid... More

Chamas is one of my family's favorites. We enjoy different cuts of well seasoned grilled beef, duck, chicken, sausage and the best Grilled pineapple with a pinch of cinnamon and brown sugar. All food is delicious and well cooked. Salad bar is OK nothing special, would recommend ceviche only. Desert not up to scratch too but for meat lovers we... More

Chamas is a Brazilian steakhouse where the meat keeps coming. Great for larger groups to dine together as you don't wait for formal service. A good variety of meats on offer including Wagyu. So long as your red/green disc is green side up, the staff will offer you meat. Turn the disk to red if you need a break. Reasonably-priced,... More

The only mistake you can make at Chamas is to eat any pasta, bread or rice. This place is all about the meat and that should be the star of the show. The salad bar is tempting and perhaps worth one visit. The meat is served on spits, carved in front of you. However if you are a Brazilian, or... More

A bit pricy, yet you get plenty of non-stop high quality meat dishes and salad choices. Tummy and budget can't afford too often, yet it is a great place to splurge and enjoy very nice entertainment as well.

Loved it and did it over and over. I indulged on their 15 types of meat and could not stop ordering almost every flavor of Caipirinha. The price is expensive .. I think it was around 380 with unlimited Caipirinha but only around 280 without / check on their latest prices though. But it is worth it once in a... More
