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.
