Square Meal Review of Chakra ?

Although the odd doubter reckons that there are ‘much better Indians at much better value', few can claim quite this level of opulence. One half of Chakra's fancy dining room is dressed like a Mayfair club – all gleaming white banquettes and chandeliers – while the other is stately chocolate brown. The cooking takes its cue from the subcontinent's royal kitchens, and delivers sizzling kebabs with distinctive regional flavours, from Nawabi-style venison to a lamb special from Lahore. Curries – especially the Jalandhar chicken – get the spice levels spot on, while the clay oven knocks out terrific tandoori-roasted meats. Classy cocktails and sharp service provide the back-up, but be warned that prices are in line with the lavish interiors and affluent location.

    sliceoffme :: Chakra,Notting Hill – a review

    Chakra at Notting Hill- a fine dining Indian restaurant with pristine white interiors – padded white leather walls,grand seating and grand chandeliers that could mimic the dining room of a rather swank Indian palace that has had a modern makeover of sorts – was where Fiona and me were invited for lunch a few days ago. It was a lovely bright afternoon and the light was just right for food photography, so Fiona and me with our cameras on the ready started off our gastronomic adventure with these colourful and refreshing cocktails served with complimentary mini poppadoms and delicious chutney...

  2. Many a cow sacrificed itself to kit out Chakra in Notting Hill. Whilst there is an expected absence of beef on the menu, there is a strong bovine presence; leather covered tables, sunken cream leather chairs and dimpled leather banquets, padded leather walls - there’s potential to moonlight as a sectioning ward. The space does initially feel like someone went wild at the everlasting DFS sales. The off-white colour scheme is one most restaurateurs would run a mile from, particularly for a cuisine with staining powers that would render even the most concentrated dose of Vanish as redundant. But along with the shimmering chandeliers, classy cocktails, well-drilled waiting staff, and clientele that boasts a few celebrities, it packages very nicely as an up-market and lavish dining destination set in an affluent part of town...
