This cafe is a must visit for all the tea lovers. It's lovely place with beautiful ambiance and different choices of tea. Having a combo parantha makes it more tasty.

Thanks to a dear friend of mine I happened to step into Chai Jaai for a cup of tea. Well the cafe if so beautiful and inviting that ended up spending around half a day reading a book and admiring the place.

If you love Tea and only tea, then this is the place for you! It has pretty decors but poor quality food. Limited options to eat You can visit during the sunset to enjoy the view from their pretty windows.
