Overhyped & Overpriced. Nice decor but way to pricy. Good views of the river & garden. Menu is not very elaborate.

Came here with a group of friends and kids to get refreshments and light snacks after a day of walking around in various gardens in Srinagar. The "outside" seating area is rather small and cozy but offered a good view overlooking a canal. Decor was...pleasant with what appeared to be hand-painted patterns on the wall. Menu has a wide selection of moderately priced appetizers, pizza, entrees and beverages. I had the Iced coffee with a scoop of ice cream and a chicken pizza (both very good). Other members of my party had crepes, kahwa, chai and assorted snacks and were satisfied with their orders. Service was relatively good (compared to the average here). Although not spectacular, this place is place offers a refreshing respite after a day of exploring the lake and gardens of Srinagar.More

Nothing special about the food. The owner is a rude narcissistic person with no experience about hospitality.

I walked into Chai Jaai, a cafe with a quaint old world charm which it retains through its interiors as well as crockery. I was alone but I spent a good two hours sipping Selim Hill Spring Darjeeling Green Tea. The tea was served in...a colourful porcelain tea set accompanied by a timer which had 2 settings of light, medium and strong. I ordered a Kashmiri bread called Sheermal which was available salty as well sweet. If you have time then you should just sit by the window and watch the people sailing or walking on the bund. Kahwa was being served in majestic metal Samovars. Until now I hadn’t tasted Kahwa, the Kashmiri tea, I had heard so much about.More
