Cozy and delicious!!!

I've been eating at Chakara for years. It's the perfect spot for interesting Asian fusion dishes. Always delicious, cozy atmosphere and a fantastic sake menu. There's are even sake flights for those who have never had it- or for those with a bit more adventurous spirit. My husband and I think of... read more

I stopped in for a quick lunch and was not disappointed. The service was fast, friendly and efficient (water glass always full, several quick checks to see if I need anything). The food arrived quickly and just the right temperature for each of the three courses. I tried the cheddar egg drop soup and was delighted by its subtle cheese... More

We have been going to Chakara for little over a year now on a regular basis and the food is consistently fantastic. Service is also excellent as well. The Dan Dan Noodles are to die for!

Went with friends on a Saturday night. Got there early and sat at the bar. It was nice but not a "bar destination" type place. They did have some rare Japanese whisky to try which was fun. Dinner in the dining room was very pleasant and our server rocked. The appetizers were delicious all around and the main course came... More

The reviews were right. The food was excellent and so was the service. I have driven by this place multiple times and didn't realize I was passing by such a well reviewed restaurant. Between the the four of us, we had 4 different drinks from the bar, 2 appetizers and 3 entrees and everything was delicious- not a single complaint!... More

We ate there years ago and thought it was okay, but too expensive. Tried it again a couple months ago and it was wonderful. A bit expensive, but the portions are huge. We go there every time we are in Perinton, which isn't often enough.

There are a few Asian Fusion restaurants in the greater Rochester area; Chakara may be the best. The menu is deep with chicken, beef, pork, seafood and veggie options and the sauces are all created carefully and you can choose the level of spice you desire (the hotter the better!). We have been a few times with both family and... More

We went to Chakara last month on a whim when the place we'd planned on going to was closed. We were so pleased and surprised, and a little bit ashamed that we'd waited so long to try the place, it was obvious we were missing out. They had wonderful, tender steamed dumplings, and a delicious take on Singapore noodles. The... More
