Excellent Tasting Food

I really hate to not give Chakra an "Excellent" rating but I would not be honest if I did based upon my experience there last night. Last night the service to our party was soooooooo very slow. Even two locals who were with us that dine here frequently said that the service was way too slow last... read more

This restaurant is so good we ended up walking here (a fair distance) three times. The first time we couldn't find it (!). If approaching from the main road you see what appears to be the windows of a now defunct restaurant. We stupidly didn't walk around the side and gave up. The second night we had called through and... More

This place is packed. Beautiful space. The food was excellent. It is rare that when you order fish, it arrives hot. Usually fish arrives warm. At Chakra, it was very hot. Excellent meal. We were there on a Friday night (start of the Sabbath) and it was absolutely jammed with people. Great restaurant.

This place lives up to Ottolenghi's recommendation. Elegant food with beautiful ingredients that with out trying too hard was amazing. It has a great young atmosphere and is in a nice garden setting off the main road.

We sought out Chakra based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was rather difficult to locate it since there are no obvious signs from King George St and asking locals didn't help. But I am so glad we found it. Our waitress (Michal) was wonderful & helpful. They rather broad selection of seafood and meat entree. We started with delicious bread... More

Well-prepared Mediterranean menu. Fish, chopped liver, salads were all tasty and well presented. Dining area relatively quiet. Reservations recommended .Kitchen was a bit slow to deliver our main courses.

Good service, good food. I wasnt thrilled by the Apetizer which was a choped liver mash sor of. The main course was delicious though, shrimp and calamari risotto (definetely reccomended) outside sitting is nice with a beautiful Park view nice full bar as well. The Wine was overrated though, bats-hlomo sauvignon blanc, overpriced to the quality in my opinion.

In a country that has many excellent restaurants and food in general - chakra stands out as one of the very best in the whole country. The food is fantastic - literally everything on the menu is amazing. If you are hungry and don't mind paying a bit more - The chefs tasters meal is an experience that is worth... More

Top class standard on the taster menu, accompanied by excellent Israeli craft beer and attentive service. Highly recommended.
