Description: For those of you who don't know what a Brazilian Churrascaria is, InterContinental Abu Dhabi invites you to experience Chamas Churrascaria & Bar. Think endless skewers of freshly barbecued meat and chicken served by enthusiastic and knowledgeable Passadores until you tell them to stop. Add to this a South American music performed by "Los Hidalgos", and you've got one of the liveliest atmospheres in the city. Located above Chamas restaurant is Chamas bar famed for its Caipirinha creations, bustling ladies nights and juicy meat platters.

My wife and I went to Chamas for a meal. It was excellent. The beef on offer was beautiful. The chicken was poor to be honest and there was no seafood or fish but if you like different cuts of beef then this is the place for you. It's even cooked to different likenings so one guy will have a medium rare beef and another will have a medium well beef. The salad bar is pretty good as well but for the price I would say vegetarians stay away as it's not worth it. Meat lovers paradise!

This is definitely a meat lovers paradise, while catering for vegetarians too. T.ere is a bar upstairs from the restaurant

The restaurant uses a traffic light system for the meat that is served at your table: green for 'more" and red for 'resting'.

The buffet has a good range of different types of Brazilian style salads along with soup and desserts. The meat is brought out on skewers with a wide variety of cuts and types available. You are also provided with some Brazilian style side dishes that are included as part of the per head amount you pay. Some of the meat was interesting but I found most of it to be a little tough - perhaps average quality meat rather than being overcooked.

Overall service was attentive and friendly

This hotel has, like Brazilian Restaurants do, only Buffet. It is about 40 Euro per Person and serves you salads, soups and of cause unlimited meat. They are fully licensed and serve alcohol. You can only reserve for inside seating - outside tables are given away on a first come first served policy.

I was invited to go to Chamas again but I was reluctant as I had had such a bad experience on my first time. I must say I got surprised how much its service, food and atmosphere has improved since my first visit. The salad buffet had much more options, including Salada de Maionese(the tradicional potato salad), the selection of meats was perfect and there was even a lively brazilian band. They now serve Brahma and the cheese bread(pao de queijo) was delicious!! It was nice that Alex, the restaurant chef, took his time away from the kitchen to make sure all guests were satisfied.
I now strongly recommend this restaurant.
