Cha Cha, who cooked for Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, died in 1996, but his recipes live on and are prepared with equal ability by his son Kovit. The tandoori chicken is locally famous, but the daily specials, precisely explained by the staff, are usually too intriguing to pass up. The breads and the mango lassi (yogurt drinks) are delicious. The northern Indian cuisine includes garlic naan and cheese naan, served with various dishes—the mutton tandoori is particularly good. The typical Indian-themed decor sets the scene for this oldie but goodie. A branch on Convent Soi in Silom serves similar food in a more spacious dining area.
