We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. Not being all that familiar with Indian street food, we asked our waiter to bring out a selection of two or three things he'd recommend we try. We were not disappointed! He did a great job in the selection and his service was fantastic...

Chai Pani is one of those places that simply requires many visits, because the menu is so appealing that you have to go back many times to try everything. I got a lunch special - red curry, which was plentiful, spicy and delicious. My lunch partner got the Tandori fish wrap and she raved about it. While I have heard that the fries are to die for, we got the side salad, because of the cilantro-lime-cumin dressing and it was great. The price is right; the spice is right - PLEASE go to this place!

Before chai Pani came to town the Asheville lunch scene was sadly lacking in inexpensive quick options. Chai Pani led the way in providing an interesting, quick lunch for a very reasonable price. Yay Chai Pani!

I always get the sloppy jai's. Their version of sloppy joe's. So good! I also never eat french fries, but, can't resist theirs. Perfectly thin and crispy. My husband is also a fan of their okra fries. Def. a good place to hit up!
