We came to celebrate my birthday with my husband and son, the service was amazing, the non-stop flow of meat cuts, and the variety of appetizers and salad buffet! The Cuban band was full of energy. The Samba dancer were the cherry on top for that evening. So vibrant, they invited ppl to dance it was very energetic and wonderful... More

At first minute that we arrive the service was very nice. Once we sit at the table and we order the drinks service decrease dramatically, 30 minutes to get another drink, long waiting time for the bbq. Sorry to say but the place looks unbelievable nice but the service was just unacceptable for the 275 AED.

We ate here as part of the all inclusive package so my expectations weren't high but I was blown away by this meal. I haven't tried the Brazilian grill type restaurant, although my friends have recommended it, as my wife is vegetarian so it's not usually suitable. The waiter arranged for her meal to be brought from the Circo restaruant... More

Yet another excellent evening at Chamas, on this occasion looked after very well by Purna. Leave plenty of room for the outstanding selection of meat that just keeps coming, unless you turn your table mat over to red. Thanks again.

This used to be one of my favourite restaurants in Abu Dhabi. I would come here at least twice a month with family and friends. However, during my last couple of visits the salad bar has changed (no more make your own Cesar or big seafood varieties) AND they removed the desert buffet and placed a small menu instead. This...

This is still a good establishment with all competition coming up. They are still offering good music and environment. The choice of meat may be losing its luster. They could use some creativity in picking high end meat.

We pre booked our table via internet A very good Brazilian meat feast. 4 different types of meat (Beef, chicken, lamb & duck) & 16 different cuts. In our opinion the steak was by far best as you would expect. There is a large salad bar you can help yourself to. 3 side dishes served at start - not the... More

Our overall experience of this restaurant was disappointing. Uninspiring bland salad bar with unfilled dishes and boring sickly looking desert bar. Service was average and the whole restaurant looks like it needs a major renovation not what you would expect from an Intercontinental Hotel. Also on the day we went there was no band playing so the atmosphere was rubbish.... More
