Explore Downtown Asheville Restaurants – Chai Pani
If you have never tried Indian street Food then you should. My favorite snack food in Asheville is the Matchstick Okra Fries (seasonal) (g/v).
Julienned “okra fries” tossed with lime, salt & seasoning. Okra like you’ve never had it – one of our signature dishes. Yes, Okra Fries! mouth watering yet? It should be.
Meherwan & Molly Irani are the Chai Pani owners.This wonderful brain child of thiers is one of the most unique places to have lunch at in Asheville. Meherwan is the executive chef & chief chaiwalla and the visionary behind the concept & menu. Molly directs the front of the house and is the creative & artistic force that brought the concept to a vibrant reality.
