very slow service, – I went on Sunday evening , not too many people in the restaurant, ordered the food and had to wait 45 minutes till the food arrive, the food is okay
My FAVORITE PLACE – I have been to this location on a number of occasions during lunch which I would recommend to everyone. Last night I went for dinner and it was fantastic. I could see why Michael Jackson loved this restaurant. The price is fair for the quality. I will be a regular customer and I hope I can inspire some people to give this place a visit.
Good Food – I went there for a sunday brunch. The place looks nice with a serene environment. I tried all of thier dishes and they tasted good. They have 4 desserts on the buffet menu and all of them were delicious. I know it is located in Beverly Hills, but $25 for a sunday brunch is I think a bit steep.
first time I had indian food – This is the first time I had indian meal. I went with a friend of mine she said it is not your typical indian food it was considered fusion indian. It was really good. I had some indian cheese in dish with green peppers.
Exceptionally Great !!!!!!!!!!!!! – My husband took me to Chakra (Beverly Hills) to celebrate my Birthday . Trust me they made it as memorable as it could be!!! As we entered, we loved the upscale ambience, not something you find in the Indian restaurants in US. We went for tasting by chef which included a 5 course meal after the chef (Mel Oza) came and talked to us about our likes and dislikes making us feel as special guests of honor. Each course was presented with utmost style and tasted heavenly just like it looked. We being vegetarians, find the usual restaurants serving the same old boring menu which anyway I can cook better at home. But chef Mel's awesome 5 course meal still has us raving about it in every gathering and first place that comes to our mind whenever someone asks for a great Indian restaurant. We were entertained for almost couple of hours with everyone's personal attention and finally were surprised with a sweet little cake to make the whole experience all the more special. If you are looking for a wonderful experience for you b'day, anniversary of valentines day, believe me, don't even think about any other place, Chakra (Beverly Hills)
is the place....and forget the price.... its worth whatever you spend there....all you remember is the wonderful experience once you leave....
The person who has given a single rating must be out of his mind...We are through and through desi food lovers and were amazed by the heavenly tasting fusion....
Absolutely Incredible In Every Way – This is my first review ever. I had to do it though because we just had the greatest dining experience. My boyfriend took me to Chakra for my birthday. First of all it was incredibly romantic. They have little couch booths where you can have a cozy nook. The table was lit with candles and covered in rose petals. We had the most amazing server Soel who took care of our every need. I really can't say enough about the service. We truly felt like the most important people there.
As for the food....INCREDIBLE!!! I love Indian food, and everything we had was fabulous. We had vegetable samosas, tandoori chicken, chicken briyani, and an eggplant dish. Everything was beautifully prepared and simply delicious. The portions are perfectly sized. I can't recommend this restaurant enough. Check it out you won't be disappointed. Also would be a great place to have a party.
Impressive Hospitality,Creative Dishes – We reached there at 9:45 pm,after having a hard time finding the place.They were about to close,but offered to let us come in and said they'll take us.They never rushed us to order,kept checking on us through the course of the meal.We did not order dessert,but they gave us a complimentary dessert from the chef,who made it for us and left,since it was too late..
All in all,good experience,I definitely recommend Paneer Pave there..stay away from the appetizers!
Best restaurant! – This is the place to go,
I went to Chakra a coulple of days ago with my boyfriend and wow i was amazed!
the food and the service was superb and the ambience incredible i will definetly go there for years to come!! oh by the way for those who dont know what to do on Valentine's Day
They are having an event so call and RSVP, I already did! and looking forward to it!
Tasting Menu is Divine – a cousin of mine had a book signing and wine tasting here which spilled over into dinner for the stragglers. She asked the chef to arrange a tasting menu for us (his choice) and I had one of the most memorable meals of my life. The plates came individually, not family style like traditional Indian food, and there were 5 courses, including shrimp, fish and lamb. One person was taking notes and photos of each dish as it arrived and I wish I had too becasue I couldn't tell you the preparations but the flavors were sublime, so many different tastes unfolding on the tongue and all the different wines we had only enhanced the food.
I don't know what the regular food is like but don't go here expecting traditional Indian food. Bring a sense of adventure and your wallet. The meal set us back $80/p.p. (inc. tax+tip; excl. wine) but definitely worth it for a special occasion. Everyone raved about it.
Please Avoid visiting......if you r really a food lover....!!! – Definitely not for desi food lovers, way toooooo expensive and food taste is just ordinary........limited choice...............
