Fodor's Expert Review Chai Pani

$ Downtown Asheville Indian Fodor's Choice

Chai Pani serves "Indian street food" from the chef-owner (and James Beard Best Southeast Chef nominee) Meherwan Irani's hometown of Mumbai in a pleasant, small space, with photos of India on the walls. Enjoy snacks like bhel puri or kale or chicken pakoras (fritters). Most appetizers are only $5 to $10. MG Road Bar and Lounge, under the same management, is located beneath Chai Pani, but the entrance is around the corner at 19 Wall Street.
