Chai Shai Restaurant Review:

Nestled on a side road in the historic Brookside neighborhood, Chai Shai offers authentic Pakistani and Indian cuisine that's created to order. The specialty is the crispy samosa, stuffed with a choice of seasoned beef or chicken, onions and cilantro; or vegetables tucked with spiced potatoes, peas and cilantro. Although the place is known for these snack foods, the dinners are hearty and satisfying as well. The dinner menu changes often, but choices frequently include lamb daal, marinated cubes of lamb and split yellow lentils, with asafetida, fennel seeds and fresh garlic, served alongside naan, basmati rice, salad, achaar (Indian pickles) and raita. Among the many vegetarian options is standout pakora curry, spiced vegetable fritters made with chickpea flour, sliced onions, potatoes and greens blanketed in yellow curry. Adding to the appeal, the atmosphere is intimate with just a handful of tables and a small outdoor patio.
