I bought a Scotch egg at Chai today and it turned to be seriously undercooked - not fashionably runny but more call-the-ambulance uncooked yolk and undercooked meat. I have eaten this type of chorizo Scotch egg at Chai before and while it wasn't hard boiled I had no concerns about it not being safe to eat - it was delicious,... More

A lovely little retreat from a cold morning. I was greeted by the welcoming Staff and guided through the impressive selection of wonderful home made cakes and slices to accompany my lovely fresh cup of ground coffee. I decided on the chocolate mint cake and I was not disappointed; fresh, moist and very moreish. Go on, give a try!

Superb An excellent tea room that myself and my partner have visited many times before and can't stop visiting. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming with lots of great recommendations for types of loose tea. During my last visit, I had the goats cheese and caramelised onion tartlet with potato salad and my partner had Chorizo and Manchego cheese... More

This morning I had an errand to run in Mumbles and found myself up beyond Oystermouth castle, and there I saw this wonderful tea room! The word Chai caught my attention and once inside found a great tea room, a wall full of deli items and loose tea on the left, and at the counter I ordered my 'chai' tea... More

Being a bit of a speciality tea addict I was delighted to savour the vast variety of loose teas available. Service was very friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Delicious gluten free cake. Great packs available for Christmas presents. Looking forward to my next visit.

Our first visit for lunch. Pleasant staff. Food selective and limited but wholesome. Ordered a starter of olives and soda dough bread and warm tartlet and salad. Both were delivered together which was not the point. Had to ask for more dressing on the salad as very sparse. Would be good to have condiments such as this on the table... More

The older man there is so rude you really don't feel welcome. Food is nice but the atmosphere is awful.

I have been dying to try this place following the recommendation of a good friend but unfortunately there will be ice skaters in hell by time I get there. I called on Friday to book the venue for a group of 20 friends for a special occasion but on my first attempt, when I mispronounced the name of the restaurant,... More

The lady rang the establishment and asked for Cheers , an off licence based in the same village. I informed the lady that sorry but she had rung the wrong number, she said ok and I thought that the conversation had ended and therefore rung up. She rang again and then asked to book for a Tapas evening; we no... More

We arrived in Mumbles for a morning of mooching around and a stroll by the seaside. Upon arrival we saw a local market where Chai Deli had a stall. Regrettably we'd already had breakfast but we saw they had a restaurant in town and made a note of the address. After walking up an appetite on the pier and around... More

We had a fantastic meal last night, and it was a takeaway!! For a bit more money the food served here is far superior to the other options in the village. I would definitely tell our customers to try this place first, and don't forget to have plenty of cold San Miguel at hand to wash the food down :)... More
