“"What is Asian Fusion?" you ask? Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Referred to Chakara by a friend for its delicious offerings and good service. Not really knowing what to expect from Asian Fusion, we gave it a try. My, oh my, what a wonderful food experience. The best of typically not combined items intentionally put together for a unique taste experience. A bottle of cold sake along with the appetizer special, which was pork belly sliders on difficult-to-describe bread along with peanut dipping sauce, followed by pork crispy rolls which were substantially stuffed, then fiery won tons - all wonderfully tasty with great favors We then shared the Mongolian Beef entree, which came on spinach pasta, and stuffed cupcakes for dessert. All very sizeable portions, and we were very full. For all we had, very reasonable pricing. Their location is a bit off the beaten path, but very well worth the effort. We look forward to our next delicious experience.

“Every dish made to order”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I have eaten here three times and cannot praise the wait-staff and the chef to highly.
There is always a fair portion on your plate and the soups are excellent!
The tastes area nice change from standard Asian fare.

The prices are quite reasonable and I will keep going back for more!

“In a word, superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We have gone to Chakara three times in the past 3 or 4 weeks. The food is to die for, and the service is beyond impeccable. Our waiter each time was Andrew, and he is the consummate definition of an attentive, polite and courteous (but unobtrusive) server. As an example, he remembered my dislike for peanuts between visits to the restaurant. We have been there with 2 other couples, three times, so that is twelve meals, all different, and all superb. I remarked to my dinner mates this time that it's difficult to make 12 meals to perfection, but they have done so. The atmosphere is engaging and authentic at the same time, very classy and relaxing at the same time, etc. etc. A 10 out of 10.

“Wonderful food & service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We tried Chakara for the first time a couple of weeks ago and were really impressed with the food. It includes creative versions of many different Asian dishes, with fresh ingredients and wonderful tastes. We returned this past week and had another great experience. The service was also excellent. We had the same waiter, Andrew, for both visits. He gave us very good advice on menu choices and taught me a lot about saki. The restaurant is open until 10 on weekdays and 10:30 on Fridays and Saturdays, which works really well for us. We'll return soon to introduce friends to this place.

“Nice twist on the traditional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

"Asian fusion" is appropriate, Indian, Thai, chinese, Japanese, Koren. Not a huge selection but excellent flavor and presentation on all dishes. We have eaten here several times, brought some friends, they were very impressed. Love the Vietnamese coffee and fried green tea ice cream.
