Excellent food. Went for lunch. The service was one of the best. I'll go back again. This is a fusion restaurant.

Out for a Sunday afternoon drive with the folks, this place caught our eye. What a great discovery. You can't quite tell what you are stepping into from the street. Big thumbs up for the atmosphere and the fresh-tasting food. Lunch deals for $9. Crazy good. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. Among the 5 of us, we had 4... More

Of the three people who took care of us variously over the course of the evening. one was mainland Chinese, one was Taiwanese and one Korean. When the menu refers to the fare as "Pan-Asian," they're serious about it. We started with Crispy Rolls" filled with fresh ingredients well prepared—and actually crispy—while we enjoyed the evening's delightful Argentine Malbec and... More

This is going to be a tough review to write, because I entered this restaurant expecting to write a '5' review, especially reading everyone else's report of the place. It was even tougher since our waitress is a favorite "food person" of mine, (Britanny, of local bagel restaurant). But the truth is that I was underwhelmed by our meal, so... More

We've been to Chakara many times before, and they never disappoint. Staying consistently good is often a challenge for a restaurant. Started dinner with pork belly sliders and fiery wontons. Great flavors, spicy but not too hot. I try something different every time we go. Which is a tough choice, with cuisines from Korean to Indian to Thai. Tonight's entree... More

Stopped here for first time and was impressed. Very friendly staff, and our dinners were delicious...basil tofu had wonderfully large fresh basil leaves. Also had a half price flight of warm saki.

I had never been to Chakara although have passed it by many times. It's in a strip mall and it's hard to tell what it might be like on the inside. Although the decor is nothing much to speak of, the menu options for both food and drink are unique and the quality is excellent. I started with the miso... More

This is very good restaurant is located in the middle of nowhere in Fairport NY. The service, menu choices and atmosphere are excellent. I love the appetizers and light dishes. It is the best Asian cuisine restaurant in the area.

Enjoyed a light but tasty supper, good gyoza, subtly spiced mains, overall very good value. The food is the star, decor not so much...
