Went to Chak 89 for wedding dinner, location is good as lots of asian peoples down the road. On arrival the place is quite deceiving as it looks like some kind of hidden back street casino. Has convienient parking for hosts who arrive early but not for an extended party of 300. Banqueting hall is quite pleasant and inviting.
Staff are very good, warm and friendly will go out of their way to meet your request when it comes to dinner service.
Food is good but not excellent, samosa filling and the aloo tikkis are a but grey and not very fresh looking, bursting with flavours of wholes spices which get stuck between your teeth. It is of the same standard as the local tooting resturants down the road but with a premium price. Serving dishes are very ordinary pyrex bowls. For the price, they could step it up a bit. Overall it was ok, for a wedding I would rate it as 4-5 out of 10, it makes a good upgrade for our asians who are still evolving and getting out of the school hall wedding with dinner served in it’s cateen.
Event manger is a bit ruthless as for the typical asian wedding where no one bothers to send an RSVP, half the people don’t turn up yet all the food is paid for and chak89 are reluctant to give that food away that has been paid for. Menu could definitely do with improving.
