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.

But I guess, the Reviews are all "PAID Reviews". Guys, if you are really looking for good north indian taste, DO NOT go to Chakra Restrau. The food is... More

Nice Indian cuisine set in a quaint Indian restaurant. There are separate little rooms for dining. Limited car park space. The food was tasty.

This is far most the best indian food restaurant in Jb area. You should open a branch in kl as well. The north indian cuisine is mind blowing the flavour and everything is just too awesome. Would love to bring my family here again for lunch or dinner.
