I just wanted to express my appreciation in writing for the hospitality you showed recently.

I am extremely impressed with your conference facility at CHAK89. The venue is beautifully set out with a comfortable atmosphere that would grace any special occasion. Clearly no expense has been spared as everything is of a very high class indeed.

As for the food - I'm very keen on Asian cuisine, and what your chef prepared, and the way it was presented, was of the highest quality I've ever tasted. Please pass on my thanks to your kitchen staff and particularly to the manager who was very kind and friendly.

Thanks again

Being from the Midlands I have been fortunate enough to enjoy some excellent Indian food in many superb Indian restaurants and I must say that my recent experience at Chak 89 definitely rates up there with the best of them.

Excellent Food, Excellent Service, Reasonable pricing and very relaxed surroundings made it a superb, memorable evening for our group.

I'm looking forward to my next visit already.

Kind Regards,

Chak 89 attention to detail and your pre-planning is second to none. You have shown great innovative and professionalism and to cater for 1000 people is not easy. We at City Pavillion are very proud to have CHAK89 as one of our official caterers and wish them every success in your new venture.

Kind Regards

I would like to thank you all for contributing towards the fantastic experience me and my colleagues had a lovely time at your restaurant.

We were all impressed with the beautiful layout and warm environment. The food ordered was superb and the bar facility was a bonus for the staff who drink.

Most of the restaurants where we as a large number have been to lack good service and speed efficiency bringing out the food, but this was certainly not the case at CHAK89! Starting from the cleanliness of the restaurant to the warm welcoming from the uniformed staff who offered great hospitality, just made the experience even more worth while.

We will all be back very soon and recommend this to all those who appreciate the ultimate Indian cuisine.

Kind Regards

I am writing as I was moved to comment the excellent reception laid on for us at our recent conference.

From the marvelous food to the wide selection of drink to the excellent service of all the staff on the night, your team and facilities really helped to make 2009's get together a special event.

Best of luck to you all. We hope to see you again next year.

Best regards,

I would like to thank you all for a terrific dining experience you presented to my colleagues and I on 31/07/09.

My visit to CHAK89 was organised by my colleagues as a farewell do and I must say they couldn't have given me a better send off!

The staff were friendly and polite and the service was prompt. We were welcomed gracefully at the door, and waiters were very attentive, polite and willing to advise and recommend dishes in a very courteous manner. The efficiency of the staff was ‘second to none'.

I have never been a huge fan of Indian food but CHAK89 changed my views on this, I was pleasantly surprised to learn the range and quality of authentic food and drink on offer at this highly rated establishment. The food was fresh, and full of flavour - hats off to the chef! Food was well presented and served hot which I find is a rarity nowadays. The ambience and the well designed interior was a bonus too!

This was my first visit to CHAK89, and I have to say that overall the experience was outstanding, if you haven't been so already I would strongly recommend you venture to CHAK89 for a sophisticated, enjoyable evening, I will do again very soon!

Thank you once again for such a pleasurable evening.

Kind regards

I am writing to you in reference to my recent visit to your restaurant CHAK89. I wanted to thank you for the delicious food and excellent service provided by your staff. Your Punjabi dishes like Tawa Chicken and Grilled Tilapia were absolutely brilliant. Their flavours were very well balanced. The staff were highly knowledgeable and recommended me dishes according to my taste.

The drinks were served at right temperature and they had excellent knowledge on their whiskies.

The overall experience was superb and I hope to repeat the experience in the near future.

Kind regards

Many thanks for your assistance in arranging, at very short notice, the meeting at CHAK89 Mitcham. The food was excellent and the day ran without a fault. We use many venues across London and found CHAK89 to be very friendly and hospitable to all requests and we did come up with a few random ones.

Many thanks again and look forward to future meetings at CHAK89 and as a guest for the conferences we attend for the National Federation of News Agents.

Yours Sincerely

I would like to send a quick note to you to thank you for the excellent service we received when visiting your restaurant recently.

All of my party had an excellent meal, the food was superb and the staff very attentive.

I very much look forward to coming again soon.

Yours faithfully

Just a brief note to thank you for your time recently and the excellent food after our meeting.

I must say the improvement made to the CHAK89 restaurant (and the banqueting suite) is fantastic. Much brighter and modern feel to it, and of course the food was excellent. As you know I am an Indian food fanatic and it is hard to get "real" Indian food at my local restaurants, so I am grateful when I eat what I feel is authentic food (Can you open a restaurant in Enfield please?).

I look forward to eating at again soon.

Yours sincerely

Just a quick note to thank you for the hospitality you extended to myself and my Carlsberg colleagues during our meeting in the restaurant.

The setting was great, the food extremely good and the service was faultless, all of which combined made for a very pleasant experience.

Once again thank you to both you and your staff.

Yours Sincerely

I would like to thank you for a fantastic evening our company had last week at your amazing club CHAK89.

We had the best of evenings, the food was out of this world, the service was beyond belief and the atmosphere was electric, we could not ask for more.

We will certainly be returning for our next meeting.

Once again many thanks for a superb evening.

Thanks to everyone at CHAK89 for the delicious and marvelous food you served to my guests. I have been to many prestigious events and this was by far the best.

This venue is the best in London and I was very impressed with the service and decor and the entertainment.

Many thanks

I had the most amazing dinner on Friday night for me and the sales team at my work - was accommodating for a large table at late notice.

On arrival we received a really friendly welcome! The menu was extensive to say the least and the food when it arrived was absolutely amazing; Fresh and with a good zing!!

Not a scrap was left on anyone's plates! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to any friends or family and will certainly be going back again myself!!!

May I take this opportunity to thank all the staff and the management of CHAK89 for a lovely evening of celebrations on the happy occasion of Mehndi Party.

My daughter wanted a Mehndi evening in style with an Arabic Theme. The management of CHAK89 really made a brilliant effort to ensure the food, decor and the surroundings all live up to our expectations.

The floor was laid out with nice colourful mattresses that remind one of Morrocco. The Shiha on display gave a feeling of an Arabic theme and so did the food. The service on the day was excellent and the bar was good too. We had a memorable evening which our family shall always treasure.

I would recommend CHAK89 to all organising such functions in the future.

Thanks once again

Mr Deepak

General Manager, Dhamecha Cash & Carry

My wife and I wish to thank you and your team for the 1st class service provided for our daughters wedding last Saturday. Many of our guests commented how much they have enjoyed themselves at your venue. The food was delicious and the atmosphere enchanting.

Once again we thank you for making our beloved daughter's wedding a memory to treasure. We will not hesitate to recommend your services to our friends and family.

Yours sincerely

I just thought I would write you a short note to say what a great time I had at your restaurant. It was not just the company but the surroundings and especially the excellent food which was "to die for". I could not explain it in any other way.

I would certainly recommend it to my friends and colleagues and you will certainly see me at CHAK89 again, hopefully in the near future.

Kind Regards

Thank you for the wonderful food and service that you provided yesterday. The banqueting hall was fantastic and great lighting. I fully recommend your venue to anyone. I've been to the venues in the west end and this by far was the best.

Kind Regards

David Sunter

Business Development Manager, Rubicon Drinks Ltd UK

I just wanted to say a big "Thank You" to you and your team for a fantastic evening we had at CHAK89. From start to finish the entire team including you were very helpful and made the evening very special for our customers. The dinner menu was delicious and we have had many comments on the quality and selection. The warmth and extended welcome from you waiting staff was excellent and my "hats" off to making my guests very comfortable.

I am sure we will be in touch in the very near future to use your banqueting hall again!!

Once again please express my sincere gratitude to your entire staff.

With best regards

With so many good Indian restaurants in and around London, it is hard to pinpoint a specific favourite. It only took a brief business meeting at the CHAK89 for me to decide I wanted to come back for a meal and experience the food. Don't let the fact that the restaurant isn't based in the centre of London put you off, it's stunning interior wouldn't look out of place in the West End and neither would the food.

Topping off the experience is a super wine list, which I am proud to say Gallo is a part of. Although I am not a Rose drinker, our Gallo Family Vineyards White Zinfandel was a perfect complement to my Murgh Jalfrezi. It only took one visit for the CHAK89 to become a favourite of mine and I am sure upon visiting, it will become a favourite of yours too.

Firstly, I would like to thank you for your support and gratitude for allowing us to use Chak 89 Restaurant for our committee meetings.

Anyway, the reason I am writing to you is that one of our members recently hired your Banqueting facilities for his daughter's wedding and I was the organiser for the event.

May I take this opportunity to congratulate you all for giving us a warm welcome and excellent service that we have not experienced anywhere else in London? I mean the staff were all working with smiling faces and were readily available for whatever are needs were.

May I also congratulate you and the superb menu the chefs had cooked up for the event, it was praised by everyone for its taste and freshness not forgetting the efficiency on the way it was served after all feeding 480 guests is not easy.

Anyway once again I would like to thank you for your excellent support and superb service and I can assure you that CHAK89 will be the only venue to be hired for all our events and will be recommended as the number one choice for events within the Charotaria Leuva Patidar Samaj and other communities.

Kind regards

Mr Y V Patel

Chairman, Charotaria Leuva Patidar Samaj
