Chakra, Inglewood

As we step into the Inglewood dining room, adorned with elegant Indian lanterns and opulent shades of red and gold, we’re warmly greeted. It’s my son’s birthday, and he’s made a fuss of by the waitstaff (I mentioned the celebration in our booking). A birthday card is on the table for him, which is a lovely touch. Chakra has embraced technology by using tablet menus, allowing customers to effortlessly send their orders to the kitchen with a simple touch. If you are familiar with using tablets or smartphones, you’ll find this system very user-friendly. If you prefer to order the old-fashioned way, paper menus are also available. This also makes ordering drinks a breeze, eliminating the need to wave over a waiter. You can easily split the bill this way too.

The Food

On Chakra’s menu, there are an array of Indian options, ranging from modern creations to timeless favorites such as butter chicken, chicken tikka masala, lamb korma, and a spicy vindaloo. Those with adventurous taste buds are bound to find something deliciously unique too. We shared the food amongst three adults, my son deciding to go it alone with his Butter Chicken favourite. We start with a sweet mango lassi.

For entree, we relished the butter chicken kulcha, a curry stuffed leavened bread with basil yoghurt, beetroot garlic chutney, and kasundi.

For our main course, our selection included a Masala Beef Empiler. An impressive signature dish with layers of turmeric pulao, masala beef, khachumber salad, fenugreek boondi, plus toasted almonds, pistachios.

The Kerela chicken curry, uses double marinated Lilydale chicken in Kerela spices, fresh tomatoes, tamarind, coconut cream,
turmeric, curry leaves, aromatic lemon rice, beetroot cabbage slaw. It went down a treat!

We also enjoyed a lamb curry, sauteed veg and of course, a butter chicken.

On the side, of course were naan bread, papadums and steamed rice. There’s a variety of nann encompassing the classic style, a crispy and fluffy variant, stuffed and even a gluten-free option. We’d recommend the more-ishly cheesy nann, served on an ornate shovel!

Of course, Chakra also boasts an enticing selection of Indian desserts. Sadly, we had no room left for these, but my son was delighted with a complimentary rice dessert that was brought out with a candle and a festive rendition of “Happy Birthday”. He donned a fun birthday turban and it made his night really memorable.

With its exceptional cuisine, efficient and welcoming service, plus a diverse menu catering to vegetarians, vegans, and those with gluten intolerances, Chakra Inglewood truly stands out as a scrumptious Indian restaurant. We’ve been a few times now, and will certainly be back for more. It’s a wonderful spot for a celebration, that comes highly recommended.
