About Chiya Chai Cafe

Boasting one of the most expansive chai programs in the entire world,Chicago’s Chiya Chai offers an array of Chai ranging from classic to the exotic with spices sourced directly from Nepal and nearby regions. Backed by two husband and wife teams, Chiya Chai originated from the owner’s deep family history of tea merchants, who were one of the first to export Nepalese tea to the outside world.

In addition to over 150 possible combinations of chai, the café and eatery offers made from scratch Nepalese and Indian influenced fare including savory pies, dumplings and curries, as well as a bespoke cocktail program specially designed to showcase a variety of aromatic and exotic spices in combination with tea and other ingredients.

Goat curry great. Other dishes average. Bread sub par. A little overpriced relative to quality/service.

Half the "bone in goat curry" was bone. Dangerous and difficult to eat. Restaurant offered a price adjustment for the meal though. Spicy shrimp was very good

The best restaurant in Logan Square. Delicious Indian/Nepalese food - freshly made, not greasy. Good for lunch, dinner, organic coffee, array of teas, and a large selection of Chai options. The place is immaculate, the owner cares about his customers, the staff helpful and accommodating. You can actually have a conversation without screeching to be heard. Highly recommend this restaurant.
