Chai Pani literally means "tea and water." It's slang in India for going out for a cup of tea, a snack, or "a little something." In downtown Asheville, Chai Pani stands for innovative, fun and delicious Indian Street Food.
From chaat (crunchy, spicy, sweet, tangy, brightly flavored Indian street snacks) to daily thali specials (home-style cooked meals), mango lassi and nimbu pani, Chai Pani serves mind-blasting Indian cuisine 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.
The New York Times recommended us for our “fresh, cilantro-strewn takes on Indian street food,” GQ Magazine lauded our “Indian street food with a twang”, and New York Magazine called us "a star in downtown's dining scene." And Fox News.com called Chai Pani the "hit of their Asheville trip."
