Chakra explores the interplay between Thai and Indian culinary traditions that has produced a gastronomic symphony which delights the senses and reflects the historical connections between these two regions.Lesser known in the world of Thai cuisine are the dishes with direct Indian influence that began to emerge within the culture centuries ago. While Indian influence in Thailand began during the 3rd century B.C. with the arrival of Buddhism, the apex of culinary influence occurred starting in the late 13th century during the Sukhothai period. During that time the spice trade flourished and the Thai royal court hosted Indian expertise of multiple disciplines including the culinary arts. Our Thai curry dishes at Chakra are iterations on recipes that were developed during that time period hundreds of years ago. We invite you to enjoy the warm melody of spices our dishes offer, in our tranquil dining atmosphere featuring meditative music and warm, melo lighting.
