About Chaakoo City Centre

The original Bomba Cafes, otherwise known as Irani Cafes, were originally opened by the Persian & Irani immigrants to India in the 19th Century. The Irani Cafes were very popular for Irani Chai Tea & a melting pot menu of classic Iranian grill dishes & classic Bombay dishes alike. They were adorned by students, taxi drivers, prostitutes and lawyers akin, as the world passed by outside. In the 1950s, there were 350 Irani Cafes & today, only 25. At Chaakoo we have strived to keep the feel & experience as similar as possible, with a little added extra. Enjoy us whether you pop in for a Chai, Bombay Slinger or Chaatinar. THERE ARE NO RULES!

lamb madras was too salty,a lamb/rice dish recommended by waiter was almost all rice and was worst choice we selected. It felt like a conveyor belt as we were sat in front of an endless queue of people waiting to be seated and the 90 mins. window to complete the meal just added to the conveyor belt experience. Not the place for a romantic meal for two.

Really lovely setting, staff are efficient and friendly. The food is delicious, with larger than expected proportions, and value for money. I would definitely recommend (and have been doing so) to friends.

Although it's smaller portions and staff do advise you to maybe order 3 choices. I would have been happy with the 2. The food was excellent.

Been numerous times. 2nd time I’ve had to ask for my food to be heated up. Last time this happened I was assured that Chaakoo aimed to serve food warm??? Surely it’s a simple task for kitchen staff to do this. Recently the quality of the naan has slipped. Under cooked and doughy.

We were new to Chaakoo so didn’t fully have a handle of the model. Sever explained food wouldn’t come all at once but didn’t clarify that we needed to order in several stages to avoid that. Result being that some food was cold by the time we could get to eating it She was lovely and she was helpful but suggest training need in terms of explaining the concept is warranted. We will be back though as lesson learned and food super .

First visit to Chaakoo and it did not disappoint. Food was fabulous and waiter took time to talk us through the menu and advise how many dishes we should order. Food arrived quickly but the quality of the food was excellent. It was lovely to be able to try a few smaller dishes.

Had a lovely visit. The decor added to the atmosphere. Food was fresh and super tasty. Love the Portion sizes... can try a few dishes and not bagged up. Cocktails are amazing - especially perfumes if Persia. Staff very friendly too.

Very good experience however the Table too small for Tapas . The draught from the front door impacted the experience and the front tables seem more like a pub environment rather than a modern restaurant. I would still recommend to friends as Tapas format is great and food was good .
