Chai Pani has been packed daily since its March opening. Attribute the response in part to the care that owners Meherwan and Molly Irani take with the food: The kitchen grinds its own spices and makes sauces from scratch, a rarity among typical Indian restaurants. Jump into the meal with Bombay chili cheese fries topped with incendiary lamb hash and paneer, or the whole-leaf kale pakora fried in curried chickpea batter. Move on to matchstick okra fries scented with lime, multi-dish thalis, uttapam pancakes topped with tomatoes and cheese, and glorious masala fish wraps. - See more at: http://www.atlantamagazine.com/guides/dining/Details.aspx?id=11224#sthash.t0LjFnNt.dpuf
Chai Pani literally means “tea and water”. It’s slang in India for going out for a cup of tea, a tasty bite, a snack, or “a little something.” Chai Pani can also mean a small bribe just enough to get a bite to eat. At Chai Pani, you won’t have to bribe us for excellent food and unparalleled service. We offer something for every palate and budget. Daily specials, small and large meals, and an ever growing range of both traditional and unique creations. Chai Pani website
This is going to be fun as they take no reservations. So it should be another interesting event. Please show up on time as they close at 21:00. And it could be packed.
