A small restaurant in a very quite street near Notting Hill. Be aware that the address is correct BUT the tripadvisor map is all wrong: put the address in google map and you'll reach the place. The food is indian in origin but different: less spicy and more delicate than the usual, yet retaining all the taste. Good work, chef!... More

Chakra was the perfect spot for a wonderful summer lunch. I had been a fan of their old digs at Notting Hill Gate as well, and the new location did not disappoint. A great selection of appetizers and entrees with a wonderful summer menu, and a nice shaded spot outdoors under the umbrella. Service was quick, quality of the food... More

I love the twist on Indian favorites. The presentation of each meal and the intimate restaurant which is great for date night. The food choices were so good that this restaurant was given a full review on my blog - "amazing food and travel".

Service pleasant. Location al fresco, fun, pretty and serene. Puddly under foot but puddles hidden by fake grass after rain. Food interesting, Salty, fried and oily, and high priced. Desserts well presented, but ultimately not that satisfying.

It’s always nice to have friends who know about the latest restaurant openings and better still if they can take you to them as well!   So imagine how pleased I was when a friend who had been a regular at Chakra restaurant – at the time this modern Indian was based in Notting Hill Gate and now moved to...

Had dinner at Chakra last week. I love their new location which makes a little more hidden and romantic. Beautiful lighting and interior. Very attention staff that don't mind explaining every dish to someone who is new to Indian food (it was the first time my friend had Indian food). The food arrives so beautifully presented that you don't know... More

Fabulous food. Looking for vegi dishes the menu seemed a little limited, but we were not disappointed with our choice. The food was outstanding. Great service from the attentive team. Lots of little touches that make it a dining experience not just a curry! We will be back!
