My company HQ is in JB. For many company functions, we had Chakra catered food and I found them to be delicious.

My only regret was that I have never visited Chakra restaurant and experienced a meal there. In a recent customer visit where they requested for Indian cuisine, I finally got to fulfill my wish.

Having said all the above, the food and overall experience were a bit underwhelming during this recent visit. The food serving was slow. And the food quality was a tiny bit off from their usual high standards - hence I still award the review 4-star.

Among the many dishes we had, I only like the palak paneer and a shredded crab meat patties (new to me).

The naans r so soft and tasty. All the dishes we had were good. Maybe the lamb dish and goat Beriyani were overpriced. I have given it a 5 star as the food taste was fabulous. The ambience of the place is quaint. It’s an old Chetty house repurposed as a restaurant. The tandoori chicken was very tasty. Order 1/2 chicken st least. They were very accommodating. I will definitely come here again when I visit Johor in the future. Highly recommend to anyone who likes authentic indian food. Price is not cheap but still bearable.

Honestly blown away by this incredible family run restaurant. The best Indian food we’ve ever had by far! Fresh ingredients, generous and friendly owner and staff and everything was PERFECT. The butter chicken was too die for! Such a memorable and special evening.

Great choice. Everyone loved it. Had planned to sit inside but changed our minds as the indoor settings was too boring and mouldy smelling. Eating out was great and food was great. The tandooris are great and the breads were delicious. Be careful if you order wine as it will come to you warm. They do not refrigerate their wines. Also do not take Amex or Apple Pay. Otherwise great service.

Had 1 of the amazing briyani here and was given 50% discount as it was Women's Day. Which i find was good gesture for this restaurant.
Just find the place a bit unique as they place 3 table's in each rooms as this restaurant is in a house actually.
