    Outstanding food and drinks at a brilliant value, as always. The Sea Bream Ceviche and Artichoke Causa starters were beautifully balanced, followed by the delicious Hake Plancha and Butternut Squash Locro which both packed serious punches and were amazing pieces of comfort food to make you feel good. We're very fortunate to have this restaurant local to us, and everyone should take advantage of its presence!

    Had the most amazing meal here with my family, the staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful with advice on what to order (big up Sam and Trish), and the food is just incredible 😍 the scallop tiradito starter in particular, although every dish was outstanding! Thank you so much Chakana team, love your work 👏

    If you can get past the ego of the waiting staff you'll discover the food is underwhelming. We were all excited about the tasting menu but out of six courses really only one was worth writing home about. Perhaps the a la carte menu is better. We still had a very enjoyable time but all of us left hungry and a little disappointed.

    The sea bream cebiche was excellent, and the pig suckling was really tasty. Loved also the chocolate mousse dessert. Everything was great, the service was outstanding from start to end. All around it was a wonderful experience, thanks to all the team in Chakana for making our night out special, congratulations to the chef as well!

    Too noisy. Really struggled to hear my partner talk from across the table. Waited over an hour to get our starters. Someone brought over food that wasn't ours, and our order then apparently got lost. It was a busy Friday night but we would have liked to be informed of what was happening than just waiting and having no idea. They offered us free desert and coffee, however it was a birthday evening meal and the long wait in a noisy environment spoiled it for us. I personally would not go again.

    Everything was perfect for my son’s birthday. However there were so many bones in the red mullet fillets for 4 of us. I was nearly choked by it When we mentioned to the waitress she just said the chef had been trying hard to remove it. Fish fillet should have all their bones removed prior to cooking - basic cooking principle of any cooking Rather disappointed by it especially the waitress did not pass the feedback to the chef and just accepted it Otherwise it was a very tasty dinner

Great ambience and nice touch as it was my husbands birthday they brought in an Ice cream on a slate with a candle and happy birthday in chocolate. Will definitely go back and maybe try the alacart menu.

    Friday evening was my second visit and on both occasions this restaurant has been outstanding. From the moment we walked in we were greeted straight away and offered our table to when we left. The food was amazing, the cocktails were the best in Birmingham and the service was excellent. I can’t recommend this restaurant enough, it’s fantastic and it’s certainly my favourite, everyone should experience this restaurant.
