About Chai Pani:

Chai Pani is slang in India for going out for a cup of tea, a tasty bite, a snack, or “a little something.” For us, it means groundbreaking, fun, and delicious Indian street food, paired with a passion for making people happy and building connections through good food and compassionate hospitality.


Our restaurant group has received seven James Beard nominations, and Chai Pani Asheville  WON for Outstanding Restaurant in 2022. We've also received a Zagat award, recipes published in Bon Appetit, Saveur, Food & Wine, write-ups in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Local Palate, The Huffington Post, Southern Living, USA Today, and were one of Oprah's Favorite things. 


We’re proud of how far we’ve come, and looking ahead to the next part of the journey as we transition Chai Pani Asheville into a new and larger space. If this sounds like a journey you want to take with us - providing extraordinary hospitality and changing the perception of Indian cuisine in America - we're currently accepting applications for Front of House Managers at our new location!
