Darse una vuelta por los cinco continentes a través del paladar sin salir del centro de Barcelona es una tentadora propuesta. Y te la ofrece Chaka Khan. Un guiño a la mezcla de culturas que es el barrio donde está ubicado, el Raval, con platos que miran a otras latitudes. Asia, Sudamérica, Oriente Medio y África son los puntos gastronómicos cardinales de este local que propone diversión más allá del plato. El ambiente, aquí, también cuenta, y mucho.

Chaka Khan tiene dos plantas, cada una con su nombre. Chaka está a pie de calle. Es amplia y luminosa, con una barra donde se exhiben tapas con recetas de todo el mundo. Un lugar donde picar algo de manera distendida acompañando los bocados de cervezas o cócteles. Arriba está Khan, más íntimo, con la cocina abierta de donde salen los platos. Las especias y los aromas de lugares tan remotos como Ecuador, Mozambique, Laos. Corea, India, Jamaica, Marruecos, Irán… inundan este espacio decorado con exotismo y elegancia.

INSIDER tip

El restaurante recuerda a Chaka Khan, la reina del funk (‘Ain't nobody’, ‘I'm every woman’) y cada fin de semana se celebran sesiones de DJ a ritmo disco, funky, world music, afro, house y electro.

    We were quite early for dinner (19:00) and clearly it was too early for Barcelona. We were the only people in the restaurant, even though there were plenty of reserved notices on tables. That made the atmosphere a bit on the awkward side. The food though was delicious - can't fault them on that. One of my husband's tapas, the confit duck, was dry, the smoked aubergine dip was a delight and the bunny chow was fabulous. It's not a cheap night out, but it certainly is worth it for something a little different.

    The restaurant was amazing from the service to the food. The unique flavors of the food were satisfying and exotic. We had the sangria then the server recommended a signature drink that tasted like a blend between a Moscow mule mixed with coconut milk and spices. We opted for the larger chef’s menu and it did not disappoint. I ultimately ordered one of the tapas again because it was so tasty although I was beyond full. We also sat near the kitchen and the chefs were so talented. The teamwork displayed us portrayed in the food. They also volunteered to answer any questions we had. Would return again!!

    The food was great, the wine was good and the service up until the point of payment was fantastic. We specifically asked for the first menu option, which was on the front page of the menu. We were then given the bill and were charged incorrectly for the second menu, which was €15 extra per person (€30 total). We advised that we did ask for the first menu and given there was 1 dish difference, we were not to know that we had been given the incorrect menu. In this instance, I would expect that the restaurant apologise for the misunderstanding, and charge the customer what they asked for and what they expected to pay for. The waiter went off to explain the situation to his manager, for him to continue to charge us the full amount. As a compensation as we left disgruntled, the waiter offered us a free shot on the house. Unfortunately this was not satisfactory.

    We were lucky to have the seats in front of the kitchen. Seeing the work there was alone worth the bill ????

    Best restaurant we’ve eaten at in the 3 cities we’ve visited in Spain! Sit at the chef’s counter and have one of the tasting menus. It’s well worth it! Julieta and Javi were the best servers taking us through this international food journey!

    Great food and a really fun experience, got to try all sorts of different food that tasted really good. The only downside to the restaurant was that it was really expensive.

    Amazing meal, compared to most European service it was incredible, cocktails were delicious, downstairs dining room had a cool vibe, most importantly was everything on the menu was incredible we tried almost every small plate on the menu. I'm a well versed food eater and I can say with certainty if you have an open palette you will love love love this place. Not expensive compared to American fine dining standards, can't speak on typical prices for the region. Destination Restaurant.

    The welcoming/eclectic interior and lively background music set the tone for the evening. Food was refreshingly different and innovative.
