SquareMeal Review of Chakra Holland Street



Having built up a solid following in Notting Hill Gate, Chakra has uprooted and moved to Kensington’s quaint Holland Street. For us, it’s a deft move, ditching their former bling-filled premises in favour of the pretty, muted corner site vacated by the Terrace restaurant. It creates the ideal setting for some rather sophisticated Indian cooking that takes its cue from the subcontinent’s royal kitchens. Our gently spiced parsnip galouti (supposedly first created for a toothless king) with purple sprouting broccoli and leek chutney was good, but upstaged by silky balls of deep-fried avocado with a tangy tamarind chutney. After that, a dish of black cod with samphire smacked of gentle smokiness from the clay oven and showed how far the kitchen pushes itself, while mango kulfi with shots of mango sauce provided a playful finish. An online delivery service should please the locals, and plans are afoot to make the most of the charming streetside terrace.

Chic, glam dining room in muted tones, hung with chandeliers which makes for a special feel when you walk in. The six course tasting menu, which was preceeded with a delicious, aromatic lychee cocktail (though I was offered a wine or beer alternative) had a good selection of dishes. Of the first courses, the chicken, lamb and fish on the meat and seafood platter (2 pieces of each) were really tender and well spiced. The mains were served with rice and naan bread with the star being the Jalandhar Chicken which was tasty and had a slight chilli kick to it. The bengal fish curry was also good, but was just overshadowed by the chicken. A sorbet and mango kulfi finished the menu in much needed light way. The service was sleek and attentive thoughout with the only chink being that our waitress wasn’t familiar with the wine list, so we went with an old familiar in the end rather than trying something different.

I have visit this restaurant with my parents those are Indian food fan than I am as often I find Indian meals can have a lot of ghee in them however this was not the case at Chakra so I would happily go back, We had ordered for a mixed platter of chicken, kebab and a tempura coated fish they were the best I have ever had, the staff was very friendly!! The drinks selection was so good as were the cocktails and the decor of the restaurant is beautiful, it was an amazing experience at Chakra!

I've visited Chakra before 3 weeks ago during the weekend and I want to to say that the Food quality was excellent and the service was too good…if you want to eat Indian with a special atmosphere then this is a good place to enjoy with Indian food and tasty dishes in London.
