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.

“red, green, red, green.... red, red, RED!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

I will keep returning to Chamas, especially with groups of friends, as the atmosphere is great and food just keeps coming. The routine of buffet starter, while your special "beer mat" style token is set to red, is a nice relaxing way to begin the evening. Then when you're ready, turn the mat over, and it shows green... the meat waiters arrive, and unload perfect cuts of whatever meat you fancy onto your plate... and you just keep eating, and they keep coming. Finally you have anough piled up for a week, and decide maybe you should turn the mat back to red for a while. Then you see a gorgeous piece of steak coming around and you flick it to green... yum! Finally when you're about to explode you decide maybe you should just keep the mat showing red.... you're tempted by another piece... but no... stop... just leave it on red and survive another day.
"dessert sir??".... what!!!! are you crazy :)

“Don't trying to complain”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Tables being cleared around us. No consideration for those still eating.
No dessert course left so we were offered ice cream.
Tried tospeak to manager with little sucsess.
Tried to pay bill, made comment about the service and were laughed at.
At which point the staff lost control.
Service average.When asking for a drink they bring the bill.
Food was good. Selection of meats was good.
Would not recommend.
