I stopped in for a quick lunch and was not disappointed. The service was fast, friendly and efficient (water glass always full, several quick checks to see if I need anything). The food arrived quickly and just the right temperature for each of the three courses. I tried the cheddar egg drop soup and was delighted by its subtle cheese flavor. The fried pork roll had a dark brown crispy outside and was packed with meat, not grass or other fillers -- it may have been the best fried roll I’ve ever had! It was so good, I got some extras to go. It was served with a red sauce that perfectly enhanced the flavor. Yummy. The man course was Mongolian beef, which was nicely flavored with just the right amount of scallions and onions. It comes with spinach noodles or you can ask for other noodles or rice. The beef was very tasty and so tender it cut easily with a fork. The menu is limited, but they prepare vegan and gluten free dishes and do "special requests" -- that is, they will mix and match to your request if possible.

Free wi-fi. Ample parking (if the lot is full the restaurant is probably too). There are two eating areas; a dining area with about a dozen 4-tops and two larger tables and a bar (full) area with a little additional seating.

A definite keeper.

We have been going to Chakara for little over a year now on a regular basis and the food is consistently fantastic. Service is also excellent as well. The Dan Dan Noodles are to die for!

Went with friends on a Saturday night. Got there early and sat at the bar. It was nice but not a "bar destination" type place. They did have some rare Japanese whisky to try which was fun.
Dinner in the dining room was very pleasant and our server rocked. The appetizers were delicious all around and the main course came out fresh without us feeling rushed.
The cocktails were fair - not a highlight for sure but they were "different".
Overall a great experience and we will go back. We are just a little concerned since it was a Saturday night and the place was less than 1/2 full. So - go - enjoy - spend money - so it will be there when we go back!

The reviews were right. The food was excellent and so was the service. I have driven by this place multiple times and didn't realize I was passing by such a well reviewed restaurant.
Between the the four of us, we had 4 different drinks from the bar, 2 appetizers and 3 entrees and everything was delicious- not a single complaint! The veggies were crisp, the sauces were not too sweet or salty and the meat and seafood was tender.
Don't just drive by- give it a try.
