Great dining experience

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.

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

I have eaten at Chakara 2 x and both were good experiences. 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...

Five of us enjoyed a delicious lunch, everyone ordered something different. My favorite was the calamari. We had the lunch specials which are a good deal. I had the Tao of Tofu and it was amazing! One of the ladies in our small group had the Red Curry and commented on how it had the right amount of coconut milk... More

Dave the bartender was amazing, everything he suggested I loved. I ate a lot of food for one person because I wanted to try it out. Spicy dumplings were amazing, Mongolian beef was crazy good they make their own noodles, and finished with green tea ice cream. And maybe a couple of cocktails in between; )

I am sure for this area, this asian food must be amazing. I thought it was good. Again being from the NY metropolitan area, I have access to some of the best and most diverse choices. If you are from the upstate area, this restaurant was excellent. If you are from NYC, it is acceptable. For drinks, I order the... More
