Meat lovers paradise

The best place for meat lovers.they supposed to give around 18 different meat preparation. We had gone on a week day so they appeared not much interested. We had to keep reminding them for lamb which they got it after 2 reminders.taste of the meat dwarfs the bad service

Yes the salad bar is awesome, desserts are tempting but 16 all-you-can-eat skewers of meat are the reason to invest an evening. Don't come here for a quick meal. Take your time and eat even more! Wine list is good but of course UAE pricey.

Great concept. Salad and side dishes are on a bar and the waiters bring the various cuts of meat to your table. You have a red/green coaster you flip to have a break or to let the waiters know you want more meat. The Wagu beef was fantastic!

Came here on a weekday night and the place was not busy. We had our choice of tables to choose. If you haven't been here, the place is essentially a open buffet type of eatery.

I spent with my family 2 nights in the InterContinental Abu Dhabi. When we were there, we had our dinner in Chamas. All what can I say about it is that it is the best red meat restaurant in Abu Dhabi. It is a five-star rest for me

If you love meat this is an absolute must in Abu Dhabi. A fantastic Brazilian experience with your own 'meat waiter'. The staff are fabulous, and are always on hand to bring you whatever you want. It is not cheap, but it is worth it. It is a buffet for the soups and salads, but the meat is brought to... More
