Review on Chakra

Chakra is a contemporary Indian restaurant located on the border of Notting Hill and Holland Park. This glamorous restaurant has been designed by Dezzi McCaudlands and is divided into two dining rooms, one with beautiful cream leather chesterfield banquettes, cream cushioned walls and a sparkling chandelier. The second is decked out with chocolate brown chesterfield banquettes, vintage cigar style panelling, oak Colchester flooring and a chandelier suspended from the centre glass atrium ceiling.

Heading the kitchen is Andy Varma who previously ran Vama in Chelsea and he has travelled across India to find unique and traditional artisan recipes from India's 19th century royal kitchens. His inventive dishes are designed to share, combining seven schools of cooking, each containing recipes that have evolved over centuries. From the Chula, the charcoal grill you could choose venison kakori, garlic scallops from the grill or roasted quail from the clay oven. Desserts are an enticing mix of flavours with a ginger and black pepper brulee with lime jelly and shahi tukra with berries and rabri. Dishes are artistically presented and there is a well thought out wine list to complement the dishes.
