Excellent night at Chakana to celebrate 200 years of Peruvian independence! Great food & drinks. Excellent service. Tonight they did a more traditional menu from their usual contemporary menu. Which was (as a Peruvian) another reason we went on this day. But the usual menu is also excellent. Been to this restaurant several times & will definitely come again.

Chakana came up to scratch once again!
Great, interesting and colourful food, and charming service.
As an added bonus, we didn't know that our table for 6 was to be seated in the private room - the vault of the Lloyds Bank that occupied the premises in the past! Very interesting, as many of the original features have been preserved.

Stylish restaurant and chance to discover exciting Peruvian food. Dishes were visually stunning with delicious combinations of flavours.
Although we didn’t go for cocktails as the wine list was excellent- some fabulous looking ones were being mixed. An interesting night out.

Amazing scope of tastes that made our eyes pop. We’ve been before and each time it is such a taste awakening. The Salmon Tiradito was the show stopper this time.
Service was excellent.

First time I’ve eaten in since early 2020, and it continued to fulfil the high expectations it set. Food is truly different, really well presented and really tasty. Portion sizes are really generous, which definitely doesn’t detract from the quality. Staff were really helpful with the food and cocktail choices.

Such a lovely surprise of a restaurant. Fantastic food full of flavour, beautifully presented and so delicious.

Super friendly service and took time to explain the dishes, styles and flavour profiles.
Decor is subtle but classy, lively ambience but not loud…just enough to improve the experience.
Lastly the cocktails….oh man yes! Amazing!
We’ll be back and in greater numbers!

Chakana are doing incredible things and staking their claim as one of the country’s gems, not just Birmingham’s. The food is outstanding, and every course maintains the same exceptional standards. Service is passionate, personable, helpful, and attentive. Chakana is an absolute must visit.

Warm and friendly service. Comfortable and spacious table for our group of 6. Food very good and enjoyed by all - if we had any feedback it would be that we found dishes slightly too salty, but it will not stop us returning.

This restaurant is a real hidden gem. Open for only 2years it has been hit by the pandemic but is now clearly up and running again. Owned by Robert Ortiz, the Michelin starred Peruvian chef, of Lima in London, and a local Brummie it offers intriguing and elegant Peruvian cuisine, in a relaxed environment with friendly but discreet service. Our choices of both cocktails and starters had delicate background heat from a Peruvian mix called Tiger's Milk which was flavoursome and delicate in a way that sharpened the palate to new flavours from other Peruvian ingredients. Brilliant. Portions were of a good size so three courses was just right. But you must try the beef carpaccio snack - so different. Give this place a try. You won't be disappointed.

Good food very pleasant servers.

Had the tasting menu. There was a 20-30 min delay between the two main course. Nobody explained why just said sorry for the delay.

Probably eat again but not in a hurry.
