This is how Beverley’s newest restaurant Chamas looks as it prepares to open today.

The Brazilian diner is already proving so popular it is fully booked for the first two weeks of opening.

Chamas, which means 'fire' in Portuguese, is based in Wednesday Market on the site of the old Dine Bangla Indian restaurant, which closed in May.

Chamas is run by Turkish-born Ali Tekce, 34, who also owns neighbouring flame grill Cosmo's.

He said: “Me and my team are very excited to be opening and the feedback has been extremely good.

“We are already fully booked for the next two weeks and we already have 3,000 likes on our Facebook page.

"My background is in catering and I'm privileged to be the first person to bring Brazilian food to Beverley. This is unique to the area.

"I've spent six months travelling all over the UK to research this - to places like Manchester and London - and we've come up with this unique concept.”

With racks and racks of wines and wooden flooring, the diner has a warm feel to represent the food on offer.

Mr Tekce said: “The décor has been created to represent the red meat and red wine we offer. We are trying to create a warm and welcoming feel."

The diner offers a wide and tasty range of South American meats, which are freshly carved in front of the customer, but does also cater for vegetarians. Alcoholic drinks are available, and kids under the age of five eat for free.

Chamas has created 20 new jobs with its opening and Mr Tekce admits everyone is buzzing.

He said: “All my staff are really looking forward to opening. We have waited for this and we can’t wait to get going.

“It's taken a lot of effort and hard work but we're very proud of what we're going to do."
