At Chamas, the USP is a simple one. Keep the little green card on your table face-up and men with gigantic sticks of meat will continue to carve their glistening wares on to your plate. Flip it over and they’ll stop. It’s a slightly gimmicky experience, and not for the easily distracted – with spits of rib-eye beef and lamb chops wafting by every five seconds, you may find yourself guilty of drifting in and out of conversations mid-sentence. Certain cuts will even require you to assist your server with your personal tongs, so just pray your companions have the patience for a disjointed dinner. In terms of what’s on offer, there’s everything from chicken wings (tangy, tender and, in our opinion, the best in the city) to juicy, marinated chunks of sirloin steak, spare ribs and a succulent smoked beef that’s so good it’s been known to reduce grown men to tears of joy. Meat aside, the self-service salad bar is also extremely well stocked, fresh and varied. All in all, it’s a testosterone-charged treat.
