SquareMeal Review of Chit Chaat Chai

Bronze Award

This buzzy little neighbourhood joint specialises in Indian street food (chaat) and follows on from a successful food stall and pop-up run by founder Tania Rahman, who ditched her corporate day job to open this permanent site. We’re glad she did: her food offers up authentic flavours, vibrant spices and plenty of finger-licking treats. We kicked off with sticky Hakka wings in a rich, slightly sweet sauce, and crunchy puri; crisp little shells stuffed with spicy chickpeas and topped with tamarind, yogurt and pomegranate. They were followed by Bombay bhel (potatoes, puffed rice, onions and chutneys) piled onto warm roti, and richly-spiced lamb keema scooped up with sweet pau buns for a comfort-food classic. Elsewhere, the menu takes in samosas, biryani and creamy tarka daahl. For dessert, choose between cool cardamom kulfi or warm syrup-drenched doughnuts. Drinks meanwhile include Goa beer, fruity lassis and well-made cocktails such as the Potion of Tagore, a gin-laced mix with lime, ginger and coriander.

Nice authentic Indian Food -- will highly recommend it. Price is on the high side but quality and service proves its worth.
