Meat lovers, come hither. A friend took me and another friend to this amazing restaurant on a recent trip to Abu Dhabi. We could not have asked for a better welcome to the city. Chamas is a Brazilian BBQ or 'churrascaria'. As this was a Thursday evening, the place was packed and the wait was around 1 hour for a... More

I had been here once before and decided to go again with some friends as the food was good. One of our party had received a painful burn on his leg and was wearing shorts as he could not wear trousers - the manager at the restaurant was not sympathetic to this (he could even see the wound!) and said...

The offer was confusing and it did not work for us. Staff were very nice. Plates were cold so the Meat, Rice and Chips soon got cold and with people perhaps eating huge amounts of meat, some fresh vegetables on the side would have been good and acted as a balance to all that protein. Salad Bar, it was ok,... More

Took a few colleagues for Friday brunch, the choice of food in both the Chamas and Yacht club was excellant. Our table was outside and we were provide with first class service from the waiter MD Osman. I would also like to give special thanks to Peter the Restuarant Manager. If you want a good brunch then this is the... More

This review is a little late, but I ate there a couple years ago (2012) for a friends birthday celebration. Loved the food, and the atmosphere was fun with a group of girls. Salad bar was huge, and the meats were cooked to perfection.

This is the ultimate meat lovers restaurant. Not to say their salads were not good, they were excellent, so was the desert, but the meat! and the service was superb, they kept bringing sizzling tender meat and serving it right on our plate. Well worth going.

Big variety of meats (of course no pork included..), Nice salad bar and very good caipirinha! The food is too much so go very hungry. Service is attentive and polite. Prices are on the high side but it's worth it (try to go with the 2 for 1 coupons, so to save).

For a first-time diner at CHAMAS, especially someone like me who only eats fish, chicken and occasionally, pork, the whole experience can be quite daunting and provocative at the same time. As soon as we sat down, the parade of meat started - chicken, beef, pork, lamb, name it! - and each meat had a distinct mouthwatering smell it was... More

The place is nicely located at a small marina and nicely set-up. The staff is very friendly, polite and helpful and the food is excellent. It seems appropriate to do a reservation as it was quite busy.

I've maybe been to Chamas over 10 times in the years spent there in UAE and never been let down with the group gatherings that attended with me. It's definitely better than the Dubai branch for what people say. It's a great place for big groups of and even if you're a couple. The best times to reserve is for... More
