They have delicious varieties of Indian dishes but I feel that it is suitable for those who love hot & spicy food. Though I feel that the dishes are rather spicy, I still love it.......

This is our fist visit to this establishment. I was somewhat apprehensive after reading some recent reviews, however my concerns were unfounded. Service was very good, attentive but without being overbearing. Food by Malaysian standards was exceptional, it was a treat to eat boneless chicken curry! Everything we ordered was delivered in a timely manner, all freshly prepared. All dishes... More

Chakra is an Indian restaurant, which is a converted house, several rooms have 2/3 tables in each, very easy for staff to forget you. When there we were a party of 3, the other table in room then had 4 people and I couldn't hear my self think, all I could hear was other table conversation, also felt quite claustrophobic.... More

This is one of the best North Indian restaurants in Malaysia. Everything that we ordered was excellent. We went there for the second day too. Great variety for vegetarians. If you are in JB, and looking for Indian food, this is the place. It is also not very expensive, so value for money.

Nice indian restaurant with easygoing vibes. Vegetarian food was very good and service what we got friendly. This is not cheap place but not too expensive either. I would recommend this place if you wanna just stress free, relax place with tammy indian homemade food.

Chakra was great back in the day. Nowadays, food preparation does take a while, and the dishes are no longer as tasty. I would recommend 7 Spices at Danga Bay if you are looking for good Indian food.
