PRESS

CHAI PANI has been widely reviewed and praised over the years at our Asheville location (The New York Times, GQ Magazine, Food & Wine Magazine, Fox News, New York Magazine to name a few), but we are truly humbled by the sheer quantity of articles, reviews and praise being heaped on Chai Pani Decatur. Before the doors opened, journalists, reviewers, foodies, and bloggers of every stripe were ready to put us to the test. Thank you, thank you, and thank you for the warm welcome.
