Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

So good we ate there twice in one weekend! Relaxed in a bright and cheerful setting right in the centre of Bakewell. The chickpea curry was totally delicious, well flavoured and nice thick sauce. The poke bowl was spicy hot, delicious and the kofta were...tasty. Plenty of side salads with both, and a cup of mint tea to wash it down. What a great addition to Bakewell!More

Since me and my four-legged friend are inseparable I am always on the look out for a combination of dog friendly/vegan good food places and Chakra fits the bill. Tasty food with an Indian twist and VEGAN options- dog allowed. Yay! So happy. I carry...a little blanket with me and they are happy for her to sit in the window on her blanket -( bear in mind she is a small, non- shedding well behaved dog!)More

I've been here a number of times, most recently for a birthday lunch. It's a simple menu that doesn't change much but that's OK because everything is delicious. I've taken a number of friends and everyone leaves very happy. Friendly and helpful staff, delicious food...and fabulous hot and cold drinks beautifully presented.More

Was disappointed with the drinks. Refreshing drink ordered, which was described as a fruit flavour with soda, but it was just a syrup topped up with Sprite rather than soda water. Couldn't stir it due to so much ice (and, therefore, very little drink) and...some frozen fruit. The straw got so soggy very quickly that it couldn't be used. Extremely expensive for what I actually received.More

Visiting the area and we noticed The Chakra Lounge just off the busy shopping area, it seemed pretty busy so we gave it a go and were so glad we did! The interior is colourful and fun, just like the food. Friendly service with an...interesting, tempting vegetarian menu - it was difficult to decide exactly what to chose, there’s also ‘big plate’ or ‘small plate’ options. The food was delicious and reasonably priced, the cakes and smoothies looked really tempting too!More

Popped in here on a day trip to Bakewell. Great tasting freshly prepared Indian themed food. It is not a curry house so don’t expect a chicken madras. We had the smashed avocado sangam, Indian currywurst and samosa chat. All of it very tasty and...good value.More
