Hidden treasure

Mongolian beef and Dan Dan with pork were both amazing. The pork was the most tender while superbly flavored I've ever had at a restaurant. Service was excellent. Will be going back ... a lot

Pork bun heaven. Brandon $ crew top notch! Great noodle dishes and wine. I like the Mongolian beef spicy. Best Asian in FAIRPORT and neighboring towns.

A little out of the way, but easy to find, this is a gem of a restaurant. The service is friendly and attentive, the menu is tight and enticing, and the food is well balanced and flavourful. Everything feels fresh, the vegetables are crisp, and the meats perfectly cooked, but the sauces are the real stars: superbly balanced, tangy, and... More

We went there for the fried icecream, and were blown away by the food! I had initial reservations about stopping, the exterior looks a little industrial and they could use a better sign, but when we entered we were greeted immediately, and were seated in a nice clean dining area. The menu has a good variety of Asian and Eastern... More

Another find for my granddaughter and I. Chakara's is primarily Asian food. We were seated immediately, The menu is outstanding and extensive; from seafood to steak dishes. First time we had 'puff buns'. They look like big folded over marshmallows and have that consistency but not taste. Wonderful. Could not have asked for better service, friendliness, Well decorated, pleasant. If... More

I've dined in, done take out, and even had their delivery, and it's always been great food, drinks, and service. I love the noodle dishes, and can never say no to the tiger shrimp crispy rolls. The cocktails are different and delicious, and the servers are always working hard. The ingredients taste fresh and less greasy than traditional (Americanized) Asian... More

Service is excellent, menu is varied (Chinese, Thai, indian etc.) and there is a noce selcetion of cocktails and wine. the restaurant itself is a bit plain (there are flower boxes in front that remain empty in June) and the decor inside is simple, no frills. The food... More

I normally don't visit Asian-Fusion restaurants because I always feel any cuisine should be true to it's own country and origins. But I am proven wrong. I was worried due to the empty parking lot that perhaps I made the wrong decision. I was dead wrong and so glad I gave this place a chance. Don't let outside appearances discourage... More

Delicious Asian-fusion cuisine. Lots of varied dishes, and a wide range of vegetarian options (their menu specifies which dishes can be made vegan, which is many of them). The salt and pepper tofu (appetizer) is definitely my favorite. It is crispy and delicious! The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. They have a good selection of tea, beer, wine...
