Having heard many good things about Chakra I was very keen to try in and did last night.

What a treat. It was packed on a Saturday night and it appeared booking was essential; the atmosphere was excellent.

The staff were great too, very attentive and good at ensuring your wine glass was kept topped up.

Of course, the real star here is the food. It's not cheap, but the quality is very good indeed. Many of the items won't be found on a traditional Indian restaurant's menu, like the Monkfish, Seabass and Scallops.

The lamb three ways was fantastic and the crab cakes absolutely amazing.

All the mains were lovely, perfectly cooked, unusual and very tasty. I asked for my Chicken Murgh Makhan to be really hot but the waiter advised that it would overpower the dish so just made it a little spicier. It was perfect! The Monkfish was very unusual, tasty without being at all spicy.

I would recommend this place to anyone.

I've gone back to Jaipur countless times over the last few years because it is consistently excellent. The menu has some standard Indian restaurant fare, but many dishes are interesting regional variations. Service is always attentive and helpful. It's a large restaurant but has a cosy feel.

My initial visit to Chakra was disappointing as it had not long opened and the service was very slow although the food was enjoyable.

It was recently recommended by some close friends who told me that they go there regularly and always enjoy the food and atmosphere.

I booked a table for two for a Sunday evening and boy what a difference from our first visit.

Although the restaurant was reasonably busy the service was very fast, friendly and attentive. The food was very well presented and extremely tasty. The starter of scallops was cooked to perfection and my wifes Wicklow salad was very well received. Main courses of chicken jalfresi and an extra hot vindaloo were cooked exactly as requested with the meat being tender but not overcooked.
The bill was reasonable and the house wines are good value. I will go back soon.

Ideal for family outings and couples.

Chakra is such a treat! I love going there. Everything about this restaurant is just perfect, the ambience, good, service, free parking. It is out of this world...and that is not an exaggeration. If you are around Greystones don't miss it!

Booked our table at Chakra for 3.30pm on Christmas Eve. It has become a tradition but I still feel I need to write this review. The staff are impeccable, so efficient and friendly, each time we come back to Chakra we feel we are coming back to old friends....The food as usual was stunning! Starters of Sea Bass and Wicklow Salad's were delicious, main course's of Chicken stuffed with smoked Pistachio in a sandalwood korma, slow cooked Chicken thighs with rose petal extract and Lamb Chops cooked to perfection...to say we found it difficult to get up from the table is an understatement! It was the perfect start to our Christmas Holiday and yes I am already thinking about next Christmas Eve!! Ho Ho Ho!!
