Ravi and Sunitha Koneru don't much care for limitations. Not in their food, their decor, or their vision. When designing the menu for Chakra Cuisine they saw the entirety of India as a source of inspiration, from the tandoori of the North and the curries of the South to the street food of Bombay and the recipes of their native Hyderbad. And then they looked even further. What they found were ingredients such as banana leaves, scallops, and caramelized pineapples—ingredients rarely used in Indian cuisine that expertly matched the flavor profiles they dreamed up. The result is a blend of traditional and modern, where classic dishes such as chicken tikka masala segue into spicy reinventions, including a vegetable masala quiche.
The dining space is likewise a mix of old and new. Indian accents anchor the sleek, contemporary aesthetic of the dining room and private lounge, while colors drawn from the dishes themselves combine to create a cohesive backdrop. Red and gold dominate the interior, but brighter colors surround the bar, notably inside its seven specialty martinis. As for the outdoor patios, their tables center around a circular fire pit, whose flames tempt guests to sit amid the mandarin-orange trees and tell scary stories about hitchhikers with samosas for hands.
The food is very good with both traditional Indian dishes (curries, tandoori, nan, saag paneer, etc.) and interesting fusion dishes as well.Paul H., Yelp, 5/20/13
The food is excellent - seems a little healthier than traditional Indian food; yet still has many of the classic dishes.Amy S., Yelp, 7/2/13
“Come hungry. You get a complete meal with some good champagne. I am not familiar with Indian food, but it was delicious! ”
“Labeling all items on the buffet table. Some were identified but others were not. This is confusing for people not familiar with Indian cuisine.”
“Great brunch, great service, and very clean and beautiful restrooms.”
