Chakra to expand across London

Indian restaurant brand Chakra has announced plans to expand from its Kensington home to the London suburbs.

After a seven-year tenure, Chakra (referencing the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical balance of the body) in London Kensington has closed for refurbishment and is due to reopen on 1 June.

The site, which is spread across two floors, will expand to accommodate 70 covers.

The refurbishment proceeds new openings for the business with the first in Kingston-upon-Thames due to open later in the summer. Others are yet to be announced.

Chakra To Go, a selection of delivery kitchens located across the city, will also form a new part of the brand. The first kitchen is due to open in Wimbledon in June.

It will reopen with an entirely new look designed by Shalini Misra, along with a completely revamped menu by head chef Gulrez Iqbal.

Dishes from the Tandoor will include Adraki Jhinga (freshwater tiger prawn marinated with spicy chilli powder, crushed ginger and yogurt) and Patiala Chuza (Poussin marinated with cheddar, black pepper, yogurt, ginger and garlic).

Mains will include fish Moilee (Kerala-style sea bream fish simmered in a smooth coconut milk gravy) and Khubani Murgh (chicken breast braised in apricot and mace-flavoured onion sauce).
