The restaurant is nicely decorated clean, welcoming and comfortable. The staff and management were friendly, courteous and engaging.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first visit toThis was my first visit to a restaurant of this type. I'd heard great things about Chamas, and I wasn't disappointed. The food was delicious: the "salad bar" was actually not a salad bar in the traditional sense; it was loaded with delicacies like large cooked shrimp, wonderful cheeses, black beans and pork, crab ravioli, and more. You could definitely make a meal out of that alone. But then came the meat...a man brings huge skewers with all different kinds: pork tenderloin, chicken wrapped in bacon, ribeye, lamb etc. All perfectly cooked and seasoned! The waitstaff were extremely attentive without being intrusive. Make sure you eat light for at least the whole day of your dinner there...it's a heavy, big meal.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCome Hungry.Great service. High-end "all you can eat" for meat lovers. Endless table carving service of s huge assortment of skewered meats presented by Brazian costumed gauchos. Very exclusive salad bar.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food & great atmosphere.Its all you can eat meat. What more needs to be said? That being said, I was disappointed that the fillet was medium instead of rare. Evil thing to do to such a good cut of meat. The sirloin and garlic steak were wonderful though and the lamb was perfect. I would have rated the service down a bit for this trip as they seemed to be understaffed and it took a great deal of effort to get water refilled but they really were great when I had problems w/the wine getting me a pinot that was tasty.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOne would be hard-strechedOne would be hard-streched to find a better restaurant in Durham. Once we set foot inside the door, we were welcomed by an incredibly friendly and service-oriented staff. The food was nothing short of absolutely brilliant and the service held the same high standard throughout the entire evening. The staff was very attentive, polite and also took time to converse with us, which added to the feeling of genuine friendliness.
Just a simple piece of advice: Make your reservation N-O-W!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
