Hand-carved Cambodian bas-relief sculptures line Chakra's palatial, softly lit space, accenting silk-tented bungalows, teak flooring, and a low-lit stone water wall that oscillates between the colors of the seven chakras. Amid this earthy, intricate decor, Executive Chef Thomas Ciszak crafts eclectic fare with a simple philosophy, which he related in a New Jersey Monthly article: “I don’t get stuck in cuisine labels. ... I want to focus on what people love to eat. I just want it to taste great.” He likely honed that philosophy during his long and acclaimed career that's even taken him to the White House kitchen.

He delivers on his culinary ideas with a seasonal menu of sophisticated yet accessible dishes, which may include selections such as a parma ham sushi roll, rack of lamb, or a hot dog masquerading in a top hat. His meals pair seamlessly with the bar’s specialty cocktails, as well as with selections from an extensive wine list, which Gayot included on its Top 10 Wine Lists in Northern New Jersey. For a sweet finale, the chef concocts a dessert menu that is chock full of gourmet, sugary delights such as homemade Tahitian vanilla ice cream or chicory iced coffee paired with fresh-baked donuts and police-siren sound effects.

Chakra.. a must go! amazing on all levels....I have been to a wedding there and dinner a few times and was completely happy...

everything about the restaurant was wonderful...the food, the service and the atmosphere!

We enjoyed the burrata, tomatoes and watermelon appetizer. My steak was closer to rare than the medium requested. My wife's salmon was done to absolute perfection. We had fries and asparagus sides. Good service. Lovely ambiance. Just pricey for what you get.
