When you call to make a reservation, make sure they will be open. We made a reservation for 11 am and when we arrived, they told us they didn't open on Sundays until 11:30 am (despite the fact that they took our information and made a formal reservation!). Then, the food and drinks weren't ready or out on the buffet table and our table until around noon, so we wasted an hour waiting for them to get themselves together. Naan only arrived around 12:30 pm. They were rude on the phone and completely unapologetic about the timing mix up. They also turned away walk-ins around 11 am when we arrived. The décor is very nice, but the food was lacking many of the normal dishes.

Don't make reservations for people at 11 am on Sundays if you're not ready to open until 11:30 am, and the food isn't ready until noon, and naan isn't ready until almost 12:30 pm. It's way too long to expect customers to wait for you. Also, chicken tikka masala is an American favorite and most people expect some lamb at an Indian buffet.

From Our Editors

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.
