Squaremeal Review of Chakra Holland Street ?

Having built up an army of fans in Notting Hill, Chakra has uprooted and reopened in Kensington’s quaint Holland Street. It’s a deft move, replacing the former bling interiors with this pretty, muted corner site vacated by the Terrace restaurant. The setting is ideal for sophisticated Indian cooking that takes inspiration from the subcontinent’s royal kitchens. For starters, we enjoyed gently spiced parsnip galouti – supposedly first created for a toothless king – with purple sprouting broccoli and leek chutney, but it was upstaged by silky balls of deep-fried avocado with tangy tamarind chutney. To follow, black cod with samphire smacked of gentle smokiness from the clay oven, and showed how far beyond the average curry house that this kitchen pushes itself. Shots of mango sauce with a mango kulfi provided a playful finish to the meal. There are plans afoot to make the most of Chakra’s charming street-side terrace in summer.

    The Hedonist :: The Hedonist Chakra

    There are certain parts of London that continue to surprise me. Away from the retail bustle of Kensington High St there is an unexpectedly idiosyncratic posh urban village of smart flats, houses and mews and tucked away amongst the restrained elegance is Chakra, a prizewinning Indian restaurant. Chakra won Best Indian Restaurant of the Year 2014 at the Asian Business Awards, Top 11 Best Indian Restaurants in the UK 2013 – Tatler Restaurant Guide and the Best New Indian Restaurant in London 2012 -at the British Curry Awards, so clearly has some form.

    The Swindian :: The Swindian Chakra Holland Street

    Ever since I moved to Camden from Maida Vale, I have spent less and less time in West London. Nevertheless, I still love the Notting Hill area, with its beautiful houses, bustling high street, and memories of a soppy 90s film, so I was glad to return. And what better excuse than to try a new restaurant?
    Chakra on Holland Street is a recently relocated fine dining Indian restaurant, and its tiny interior boasts some impressive flavours.
