5 Innovative Indian Dishes You Need to Try at Chakra on Holland Street

Posted on 22nd April 2016

Set in the heart of Kensington, beautiful boutique interiors and impeccable service set Chakra on Holland Street apart. But the Chakra experience wouldn’t mean anything if it didn’t come with our authentic, original take on Indian cuisine. Luckily, our chefs have that covered. Here are just five of our innovative modern Indian dishes.


To Start


Crispy Avocado Spheres


Melt-in-the middle spheres of fresh avocado are brought to life with a crunchy crust. Aromatic curry leaves and sour tamarind give this dish a subtle modern twist.


Our guests say: Silky balls of deep-fried avocado with tangy tamarind chutney. (x)



Spice Crusted Tiger Shrimp


This is a starter that’s bound to leave you wanting more. Succulent tiger shrimp with a crispy, spicy crust are balanced perfectly with a cool fresh ginger and garlic yoghurt.


Our guests say: The spice crusted tiger shrimp and green chilli garlic yoghurt is unforgettable. (x)


To Follow


Black Cod


A true Chakra classic, black cod is roasted in our authentic Tandoor oven. Delicate, moist and infused with a rich, smoky flavour, the sunshine of saffron and vibrant samphire transform this dish into something truly special.


Our guests say: Black cod with samphire smacked of gentle smokiness from the clay oven, and showed how far beyond the average curry house that this kitchen pushes itself. (x)



Chicken Masala


A tongue-in-cheek nod to the roots of Indian cuisine in Britain, our grilled chicken with tomato and cream masala is full of good humour. Nutty coriander adds a warmth that lights up the plate.


Our guests say: Most amazing Chicken Masala… If this dish was a man we’d be getting married. (x)


To Finish


Chocolate Soil


The perfect finish to a spiced, exotic meal, our chocolate soil is a delight to the senses. Beautiful, unique and subtle, it’s a world of tastes and textures inside a small bowl.


Our guests say: You have to try the chocolate soil, mint, chocolate stones and ice-cream for desert. It’s a pudding that is full of surprises and melts the taste buds. (x)
