If you are in the mood for a chaat this weekend, this is as good a place as any other chaat place in Bay Area.
The pluses are: Decent enough seating area, it could seat about 60-70 patrons at a time. The food quantity as well as quality is good. All the usual suspects of chaat menu are done quite good, and the pani puri sauces are a good approximation of the real thing. Other North Indian varieties are good too, especially the parathas are done well. My favorite is the Spinach Paratha, even our kids love it. The achaar that comes with them is tasty too, although the raita is really so so. The a la carte veggie entrees and rotis are a good next step if your appetite ranges beyond chaat items.
The minuses: The staff seems to be trained a little erratically. Some of them rush you to place your order, and when you ask them for some clarification or so, they mumble some inaudibles. Others move at a pretty cool pace, and don't pay attention to your attempts to waive them down for some paper towels or so. Also their response to 'not-spicy' is to cut out the red chilli powder, but leave the garam masala as it is. So whatever 4-5 year old you are trying to feed is guaranteed a longer wait than the rest of the patrons on the table, while they bring back second round of that order. And that too is not a sure thing if you are expecting a 0 Scoville rating. The lassis are thinner than that at the several other chaat places in Bay Area. And their rewards system is really primitive, forcing you to carry one additional piece of plastic in your wallet.
All in all, if you are getting together with you college roommates, and you don't have any kids with you, it is a decent place to go for a weekend lunch.
