Chakara's menu is a hodgepodge of dishes from several different Asian culinary traditions, which is usually not a good sign for me. Unless the restaurant has a different chef for each type of Asian cuisine, the food often has weird flavor: Thai food that tastes like Chinese food and vice versa. And indeed, that was the case at Chakara as... More

The steamed chicken Gyoza dumpling appetizer was good but came lukewarm. Unfortunately, there was no hot and sour soup on the night we were there. The edamame were... More

We are lucky to have Chakara near our house and eat there regularly. The food is always fresh and delicious. They have the best miso soup ever, rich and tasty without being too salty. We have always had good dinners whether it's dine in or take out. Staff is always friendly.
