“average indian food in a less than thrilling location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

u go to this place if u want mediocre cheap indian food that comes in a combo plate. you can get chicken with rice, naan, and cucumber salad for around $10. the location is on the corner of mlk, not the best, but if u are desperate for indian food without wanting to pay a lot go here

“excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

The food was all excellent and the portions very generous. I could not eat everything. The chicken tikka plate was delicious and is enough food for two people! The food is all freshly prepared and even if you are unsure you like Indian cuisine, give this place a try - you will like it!

“Great value for a great Indian meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2011

My taste buds were singing by the time I finished my dinner at Chaat Cafe. This is a no frills Indian restaurant. You order at the counter and the food then gets delivered at your table but the quality and taste of the food is comparable to any fine dining Indian establishment. We started our meal with a samosa chaat. It's basically a samosa cut up in quarters with a delicious chaat sauce and garbanzo beans. For our entree we had chicken tandoori and catfish curry. Both dishes were servers with basmati rice, naan bread, lentil daal and succulent al dente peas. You can easily have a fantastic savory Indian dinner for under $15. A true value for delicious food!

“Flavorful, tasty indian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2011

Good menu with mix of vegi and meat. Chose a saag and aachari, both tasting quite authentic and flavorsome. Cheap and portions are large. Would definitely return to sample more of menu.
