About the restaurant
When you come to Opheem, you get an insight into the inner workings of my mind. We’re striving to push the boundaries with Indian flavours, but with cooking techniques from all over the world, some traditional, and some very modern. At Opheem, I’ll be using the same paints as I’ve always done, to create a very different picture, on a very, very different canvas. Why? Because to evolve and adapt is what makes us human, and cooking is what sets us apart from the animals.

An amazing evening for my husband’s birthday. There were lovely touches that did not go unnoticed. The food was excellent. We had the 5 course taster and there were the 5 courses plus many snacks beforehand and petit fours afterwards too. The food was amazing Aktaar Islam was in the kitchen when we visited and served at many tables but unfortunately not ours, which was unfortunate but his food and staff were fabulous

Far from being our first visit to Cheal's this was yet another superb dining experience. We were with friends and all four of us were absolutely delighted with the evening. We chose different items from the menu and we were all more than pleased. Staff are first class - attentive and on hand without being obtrusive. Their knowledge of the menu and the advice that they were able to give was superb. Cannot wait to return again!

Fantastic food and really friendly attentive staff make Chakana a great place to visit. We give 5 stars for food, staff and ambiance, 4 stars for value for money as it is an expensive restaurant but overall very much worth it.

About the restaurant
Set in a gorgeous Grade II-listed Georgian villa, the decor is bright and modern but respects the building’s elegance and heritage.

The food, too, respects classical tradition, but is a contemporary take on British cuisine - combining influences from around the world in dishes based on fabulous impeccably sourced seasonal ingredients.

Enjoy an aperitif in one of the elegant lounges in the older part of the building before moving on to the sleek restaurant with its blonde wood beams, exposed stone walls and bi-fold doors opening onto the garden.

The knowledge and experience of Head Chef Luke Tipping shows through in the assured, confident nature of the cooking – and he has the skill to know when to hold back. Dishes are balanced and pure, with subtle modern touches and a pleasing clarity of flavour; be sure to try the signature tapenade bread rolls and delicious soufflés.

Service is enthusiastic and brims with personality.

This was another visit on a different day to try the 2 4 1 Pizza offer. The pizzas do not disappoint unfortunately the add ons make the 2 for 1 offer obsolete. staff friendly but two of our party had to wait ages for their food and had to send one back as it hadn’t been cut. Still recommend this location Sunday lunch is particularly good
