Chai Pani is hiring Servers for our new location on The South Slope!


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 Servers at our new location! 


About this role: 
The primary focus for Servers is providing an unparalleled dining experience for guests. This includes explaining the menu, orienting customers to our food, getting to know them, being aware of the overall flow of the FOH (beyond just your section), being available to run the bill at the minute it's needed, and ensuring that customers have a wonderful experience and are thoroughly mind-blasted! Weekly compensation is based on an hourly rate, plus a generous tip-share program. 



    • Be warm, friendly, and accommodating - adjusting your style of service based on the customer's needs
    • Know the state of your tables at all times, checking in with customers often
    • Act as an advocate for the restaurant, taking appropriate opportunities to recommend and add-on a drink, an appetizer, or dessert
    • Utilize downtime in your service for filling water, pre-bussing tables, spot sweeping, rolling silver, helping run food, etc.
    • Work closely with the kitchen to provide creative solutions to guests’ needs (e.g., dietary, food-allergies, etc)
    • Be responsible for the correct registering and proper handling of all sales transactions
    • Always go the extra distance for the comfort and happiness of our customers



  • Prior experience serving in a full-service restaurant is required
  • Follow all company policies and procedures, e.g., dress code, punctuality, and professional attitude 
  • Follow all ALE and ABC protocol for alcohol service
  • Provide customers with MIND BLASTING hospitality
  • Be a reliable and supportive team player
  • Preserve and embrace company culture of compassion, integrity, generosity, and respect 


  • Medical, dental, vision, disability, dependent care FSA, and supplemental life insurance (full-time team members)
  • Company paid life insurance (full and part-time team members)
  • Tip-share program
  • Flexible work schedules
  • Paid sick days
  • Free shift meals
  • Employee discount on merch, Spicewalla products, and all of our other restaurant locations in Asheville, Charlotte & Atlanta
  • Cash advance program
  • Opportunity to apply to annual staff trip to India after 1 year of employment 

Giving back is at the heart of Chai Pani's mission. We make a difference when and where we can - from our partnership with an educational non-profit in Mumbai; to feeding the homeless with dignity in our communities; and within our own walls, offering competitive pay, schedules, and benefits that support work-life harmony. We hope you’ll join our team and be a difference-maker too.
