Take it from a local, Chai Pani is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta. Prices are reasonable, staff is always so friendly, but the food ... oh the food! I recommend ordering several items and sharing them with your table. Okra fries are a MUST. They are light, crispy, salty and delicious. We also love the samosa chaat and... More

On a THU night we tried: Sev potato dahi puri (SPDP), Tandoori fish wrap, and chicken thali. This place is considered a street food (Chaat) eatery. As such it is correct: the SPDP is right on, crispy packs of tasty treats. The fish wrap was the worse of the 3 dishes -- grassy tilapia fillet in a nondescript mixture of... More

My family and I ate here while on vacation. This was the first time that my daughters had Indian food. When we got there,there was about a 10 minute wait,and the different smells of the dishes made me hungrier. At first our sever was a little rude, we asked a few questions about a few of the dishes, she became... More

If you are in the Decatur, GA area, do yourself a favor and visit Chai Pani, the best Indian restaurant I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Just a little over a year old, Chai Pani has excellent food; a warm, friendly and knowledgeable staff; and great prices. This is the sister restaurant to the original Chai Pani in... More

My husband and I had a night out with no kids. We love Indian food, so we thought we would try out this new restaurant. We shared a samosa chaat, the fried okra, and the thali -- it was delicious, especially the samosa and thali. The tastes and spices were very complex. A little expensive, and very loud.

This is an excellent Indian restaurant. My daughters loved the okra fries. I had the tandoori fish wrap. The fish was plentiful and very flavorful with the cilantro and other spices. It had a slight kick to it which I enjoyed. Also the restaurant accommodates you by serving any of the wraps on a bed of rice instead. The meals... More

Trip down the familiar alleyway, the smells and sounds remind me of places in India. This place has the vibe of an Indian tea house ( my Japanese friends hold on ). It's the quintessential hang out place familiarly described in vernacular by most Indians as " time pass ". The kale chips are to " live for " ,... More

Must try the Bombay Chili Cheese Fries! Also the Non-Veg Thali with Butter Chicken was SO good. Tried the Tandoori Chicken salad - amazing! Definitely going back.

Visited this restaurant with family for dinner and am pleased with the authentic Indian dhaba type atmosphere while maintaining Hygiene and great taste of the dishes . There is a recreational game 'Carrom Board' put in the waiting area which I felt is a novel idea ! The price per head is reasonable and service courteous . Recommend to all... More
