Chai Pani

Indian in Asheville

Literally ‘tea and water,’ chai pani refers more generally to inexpensive snacks. Hence the ever-changing array of irresistible street food at this popular, no-reservations downtown restaurant. Fill up on crunchy bhel puri (chickpea noodles and puffed rice) or live it larger with a lamb burger, fish roll, or chicken or vegetarian thali (a full meal on a metal tray).
