    Absolutely superb evening at Chakana. We ordered the vegan tasting menu which was INCREDIBLE. We especially enjoyed the Cevichocho. The flavours were sublime. Every dish was unique and flavoursome. Really, really great food. We drank a mix of wine and cocktails, all of which were great. Special shout out to Erin who served our table and delivered EXCEPTIONAL service. Her knowledge of the dishes was impeccable and she's clearly also learnt about facts about Peru and the food influences that made it not just a dining but also an educational experience. All of the staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive. The restaurant was clean, warm and well presented. We'll definitely go back and would highly recommend to others!

    Fabulous food but service was extremely slow- the staff were great and very polite but there was obviously some kind of problem in the kitchen last (Saturday) night. Although an apology was given it might have been nice to offer another round of drinks, for example. We were seated at 8pm and it was 10.05pm before our main courses appeared. The food, when it arrived, was excellent, however.

    Our first experience of Peruvian food was an absolutely wonderful experience. We had chosen the tasting menu and each dish was full of wonderful tastes, colours and super ingredients. We also chose the cocktail (which was an extra to the tasting menu) and it didn’t disappoint. The staff were attentive without being intrusive and made us feel very welcome. Totally recommend.

    We had visited this restaurant before with our adult daughters and had been very pleased with the food. Our recent visit was less satisfactory. I had the carrot saltadito. Obviously I expected carrots, tomatoes and onions (although not very caramelised) as described but I did think that there would be something which justified the price of £22.

    2 Valentine's Day tasting menus with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails. The chefs at Chakana cook up phenomenal food. The front of the house is attentive and make the experience perfect. Cocktails are delicious. If you have a chance to go, please do.

    Main dish for 24£-suckling pig was not freshly cooked.The potatoes were dry,the Yorkshire pudding was hard and the meat on top was dried out so it was difficult to cut with a knife.You need to warn that this main dish has been in the kitchen since morning or since yesterday and make a discount.Overpriced.I won’t go again.

    Have heard great things about Chakana and was not disappointed. The service was impeccable by the whole team, who were very accommodating. Julia in particular was a delight, her hospitality was amazing and faultless. The bread was unbelievable and set the tone for the rest of our meal. The drinks were also both beautiful and carefully crafted. Our starters were both decadent and moreish - we went with the recommended pairing of hot crab causa and sea bream ceviche. The flavours were amazing. For mains we had various Sunday roast options and the potatoes stew. All incredibly tasty, so many great flavour combinations and really great portion sizes. The sauces, spices and tenderness of the meat dishes were amazing and the stew was warming and rich. Our desserts were also fantastic. Although the only dish we felt wasn’t on par with the rest was the milk cake. Aside from that a perfect end to an afternoon of incredible food. Highly recommend for food, atmosphere and service.

    An explosion of flavors and colourful dishes, mixed with a tropical atmosphere. The staff was very knowledgeable about each dish, and the owner went above & beyond to make us comfortable. I'll definitely go back. Perfect for a romantic date, dinner with friends or if you fancy to explore a different cousine.

    Chakana was absolutely lovely. The food was delicious, so unique and original, and you get A LOT of it too. I left absolutely full to the brim. The service was fantastic too - very attentive without feeling overbearing. I didn’t enjoy the first cocktail I ordered (personal taste) and the lovely waitress changed it free of charge, without me even saying anything. Really can’t wait to come back!

    Waited over an hour for our mains to come out. My portion (hake) was small but that was expected and it was good quality, my partners octopus was the size of a starter, there were only 2 very small tentacles and 2 small potato pieces. The 2 small pieces of octopus he did receive weren’t even edible as they were rubbery and hard to chew. We have eaten here before and had a great experience, the staff are very helpful but it was a shame that we left disappointed this time.

    This food is delicious. The flavours are amazingly zingy and fresh. I’m not a great lover of chilli, but the chillies in this food were flavoursome, and although there was heat, it didn’t burn. The colours in the food are just terrific, it’s definitely a feast for the eyes and great camera candy. Hats off to the chefs. We originally came here because of Jay Rayner’s recommendation, but have returned, and just as happy as first time. We had the tasting menu this time, which is a super way of trying the many flavours and types of dish. Who’d have thought it - pork with chocolate sauce? Wow. Also very pleased with the wine, price reasonable for a city centre restaurant. Meal for 4 came to £400.

    Nice food and service. Busy and a bit noisy due to a group of men behind us, main course wasn’t hot, and our waitress comped us a brandy each, so can’t complain.
