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.

“Not for vegetarians!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

This was our second visit to Chamas and it exceeded our expectations! If you like exquisitely prepared meat and outstanding service, this is the place. Sometimes you can feel overwhelmed and pressured by the wait staff at places like this but at Chamas, the meat was delivered to the table at a very appropriate place. Our only issue was that we were near the smoking section. Once we told our waiter, he helped us to move promptly and without issue to another location. Great food, great service. We will go again!

“unique dinner proposal”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

If you are a meat lover this is the place to go. Chamsas offers a variety of meat and provides a relaxing atmosphere. The staff is polite and fun. The only negative is that the variety of the complimentary buffet was medium but especially for the deserts, was below average.

“Green....red”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Green card on the table will keep them coming with countless of yummy skewers. Don't fill yourself from the bar, except if you want to get the mix salad in vinegar, will help you digest.
Pricey, so make sure you come on an empty stomach to really eat. Ask for the Brazilian local drink to be made in front of you. You wont regret going there, just make sure you reserve a place before you go, always full.
