“What a great meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Ate dinner here on our guide's recommendation. It was so excellent that we came back the next night, too.

Very hip atmosphere, friendly staff and a great menu with a wide variety of excellent choices. The noise level is moderate.

They have some really wonderful options for vegetarians - you won't feel like a second class citizen eating a collection of side dishes.

“Amazing as usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

I'm so happy that every time we return here it is the same superb experience. Went out with friends, had the "fixed" menu with a sample of all starters. The food was great, the service was professional and amazing as always, we will be coming again :-)

“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Beautiful room, delicious and plenty of food. We went with the menu, which meant: 8 shared starters (yum!), you pick your own main course (mushroom risotto and butcher's sausage - ok, but nothing fantastic), 3 shared dessert (yumyumyum!) at a VERY resonable price.
I think it was 128 NIS pr. person. Great service and lovely red, israeli wine. Would recommend it to anyone!

“Excellent food and service - highly recommend in Jerusalem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

My husband and I just had a fantastic meal and experience at Chakra. My husband had the sashimi starter and the t-bone lamb (both on the special menu). I had the beef medallions with cream sauce. We also shared the french fries and the Armageddon fudge dessert. Everything was DELICIOUS. We cleared our plates with every course. The steak was perhaps the best I've tasted in the city.

It was my first visit to the restaurant, but my husband has been a few times before. He said he has excellent food every time.

The service tonight was very good too. We liked the informal atmosphere.

I would change one thing - the bathrooms could use a little tidying.

Overall, we highly recommend eating here.
