Just ok

Customer service is definitely great. However, food is not up to expectations. They put solid spices like cinnamon chunks, that it was not so nice when it’s bitten. We asked the staff why there were so many of them, they responded that it was to make food taste good maintain authenticity. Yet, there should be ways to cook

Pros: Customer service

Cons: Food taste

Huge vegan menu, great service but very pricey

I absolutely love how the team at Chakra try to make you feel really welcome, especially the little personalised “welcome” card we found on our table. They have an entire vegan menu, including vegan drinks and desserts (I cannot even describe how delicious the vegan moksha drink was. Heavenly!). Our table ordered the pani puri paddle (I opted out of the dahi puri as it contains yoghurt), which was yummy but cost $18. It seems a bit steep for 6 puris.
I got the signature vegan kofta curry dish, which cost $34. It was beautifully plated but a little bland and the kofta were dry. Quite a large serving though! Unfortunately we didn’t get to try desserts cause we were so full, but I hope to next time!

Pros: Plenty of vegan options, Lovely service

Cons: Very expensive

Great restaurant

This is a great restaurant - lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, they have a dedicated vegan section on the menu and the staff make a point to check your dietary requirements.
Only slight point I would make for possible improvement is that most of the vegan dishes seemed to be tofu based - would have liked more veg based options. But wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Amazing experience

We ordered:
🌱Stuffed Bengali Jackfruit Luchi - a fried flatbread stuffed with jackfruit tarka, masala potatoes, rich mango chutney, fried green apple and dried figs
🌱Samosa Potato Cones - carom seeds zest cone, sautéed onion, date tamarind chutney
🌱Jackfruit Tofu Meatballs in a butter sauce with garlic naan and popadum
🌱Burnt Aubergine with bhartha, roasted cashews, pomegranate, boondi raita, tomato chutney and nigella seed naan
🌱Mango Kulfi with mango purée, coconut milk, pistachio dust, freeze dried mango
🌱Vegan Brownie with Rose Icecream - brownie with chilli chocolate sauce, rose icecream, freeze-dried strawberries and gold dust
🌱Karma cocktail - an exotic saffron cocktail served in a teapot!

Dining at Chakra was such an enjoyable and memorable experience! The food was of the highest quality and the presentation of each dish was impeccable. Not only did the dishes look stunning, but they were all bursting with flavour! Diners are also served complimentary appetizers, a palate cleanser between meals, and each table has a beautiful personalized place card with a handwritten message!

Adventurous, modern Indian cuisine

Exciting modern Indian food in a glamourous setting, Chakra has a 3 part menu with vegan, vegetarian and traditional options of almost every dish.
The attentive staff present you with palate cleansers between dishes and make a point to know your dietary needs.
We had a biryani and a cashew-based malai kofta; both delicious. Chakra is not cheap, but is a really nice dining experience.

Pros: Vegan, veg, and traditional version of most dishes, Intimate setting & decor, Exciting modern 'progressive' Indian cuisine

Cons: Fairly pricey, but good value, Outdoor tables are right on busy Beaufort st.

Impeccable service and amazing food

The service here can not be spoken of highly enough- just incredible. A full vegan menu available - which is always a treat. Plenty of choice and everything was very tasty, not just your standard curry and rice on offer but a range of ‘different’ offerings

Pros: The vegan menu, The service, Delicious and different food
