All in all I've looked forward to coming back to Chakra since working in Johor in 2013. Like last time the food was great. The first time I went there this trip the only thing that wasn't 100% was the onion Bhaji that was a little chewy and oily. Other than that the food was really good and service... read more

Are you in the Johor Bahru area and looking for some dishes that use the rich and heated spices that are traditional to north and south Indian food? Then Chakra is place you want to go! They have daily north and south Indian specials plus a large menu with vegetarian, fish and meat dishes. The restaurant is large and can... More

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.
