Chai Pani Restaurant Review

: Chai Pani’s menu draws inspiration from Indian street fare, ranging from well-done thali to such inventive dishes as lamb "Sloppy Joes," here called "Sloppy Jai," a flavorful lamb hash piled in a good bun. The thali may be vegetarian or non-vegetarian, and will vary daily both as to content and price. Plates are easily shared, so bring friends and graze through a variety of tastes --- don’t miss the fried okra. Heat levels are moderate, so if your preference is more toward the scorch, let the kitchen know. Gluten-free options are indicated. Beer and a decent wine list provide good quaff choices. At lunch, step up to the register and place your order, which then will be delivered to your table. At dinner, full service rules.
