Chaayos a Tea chain launched in Delhi, soon came to Mumbai. Before the launch, they sent me trial packets of chai, and invited me for the launch, which I tried, but could not attend, but promised them to try out a couple of weeks later.

Landed up there with friends to take a break from the regular coffee cafe.

Whilst everyone else decided to try out different options, I stuck to the regular tried and tested Kadak Masala Chai with less milk. Took some time for it to be made, but was quite good. The milk measurement needs to be better, given that they use the cold milk.

The chilli chai, black tea and all were quite good, nothing that really impressed me.

Snacks – Bun maska vada, bun maska, bun maska bhujia, bun maska kheema were tried and all were super except the bhujia.

Service needs streamlining a bit; as does the perfect order taking.

Definitely a place to chill for a couple of hours with friends chatting; but not somewhere one can settle and carry out some work in peace.
