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. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
