“Our very favorite restaurant in Jerusalem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

Having not been in Jerusalem for thirty years, I was shocked at how advanced the cuisine became. Chakra was a wonderful experience from the delicious food and friendly service to the atmosphere. We sat in the patio off the park. It was divine. We had the degustation and it was a tremendous amount of quality food. They did everything well. The tuna tartar and tge liver pate were yummy. The sea bream was fresh and perfectly cooked. The shrimp was excellent. The dessert platter was also wonderful.
We went back again for the lamb another night. It was fabulous.
Do not miss the tahini ice cream.

“Still my favorite in Jerusalem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014

Enjoyed dinner here a few years ago and returned for a second try. Dining here was so enjoyable- still my favorite restaurant in Jerusalem. Definitely has a Tel Aviv vibe with a hip ambience. Music is great. Comfortable setting and seating, even at the bar. Service was prompt and professional. The food is inventive, well prepared and presented. Drinks are great and the wine list, though brief, has decent and reasonable choices. A perk of sitting at the bar is the shots that are given out, rather freely. I can highly recommend.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Food so so..Service way off. Worst martini I ever had. Very unimaginative. Not sure why this place is so popular.

“A Great Birthday Celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Highly recommended by Trip Advisor this restaurant was very difficult to find. It seems that they are at number 41 and there are two number 41’s and a 43 in between. Persevere as we did and you will not be disappointed. Unless you go early, make reservations. It is a bit expensive but order the Chef’s Sampler for two. You will not be disappointed. The food just keeps coming culminating with a very small T-bone steak (they made it rare, too) on top of a delicious fillet mignon. This was my wife’s birthday so they even put two candles on the dessert tray. We don’t usually eat dessert but who could resist this marvelous assortment they put in front of us. There was just so much delicious food that all I can say is you must try it for yourself. By the way, they will substitute or add anything you want on the menu. We ate for a solid 1.5 hours while they just kept bringing it out.
