Chai Galli near CMRIT college is a great place in Brookfield to try different varieties of Chai. It was a pleasant evening, typical weekend evening with shopping, movie, dinner etc., and it was on our way to Phoenix Marketcity we made a pit stop at Chai Galli. Before getting off the bike, our intension was just to try chai (ginger) and some North Indian snacks. However, few minutes with the menu and we ended up ordering a mid-day meal.
Chai Galli Review
Being a restaurant which focusses mainly on serving different varieties of tea, the theme is of course related to chai. Starting with the restaurant name board, a logo which resembles a carriage carrying tea glass, perfectly put, which is put outside fixed to a group of casuarina polls. Inside was no difference, the hanging lights were made of tea glass holders lit with small lights.
There were aluminum tea kettles and milk cans on hanging here and there, depicting Indian tea shop (chai ki dukaan) culture.
The old movie posters, like they used to put in front of chai shops, doodles related to local slangs, a false roofing made of casuarina polls – great work. Overall, Chai Galli looked as if it was a quintessential tea shop from the 90’s.
The chairs and tables were colorful. What made me surprised about chairs is the plastic webbed chairs. I thought it went extinct over the time. Where did they got that model from? I used to have one of it at my home. Used to jump on it when I was a kid, good old memories.
Even the wash basins in wash rooms were in the shape of tea kettle. Here is a look at the same;
We started off with Adrak Chai Pot, which was served in a nice ceramic kettle. It was a ginger-flavored tea and the quantity was more than enough for two people. The best part is, they serve a small packet of Parle-G biscuit along with tea. That came in like a nice little surprise and I couldn’t resist clicking this picture.
Then we had the Falafel, the ultimate middle eastern vegetarian delicacy. Honestly, we didn’t go through the description while ordering and it was when the dish got served we were like surprised. The dish was listed under sandwiches so obviously; the something should cover both ends of falafel. In this case, they have used pita bread to cover the falafel. There was beetroot and lettuce salad as sides, Hummus as dip.
Then we had Pizza, the Italian Flag with red tomato spread; there is also green pesto spread as an option. It was delicious and mouth-watering. They had onions, tomatoes, bell peppers as toppings and was more like a cheese burst pizza with thin-crust base.
It was a wonderful evening well spent at Chai Galli. The service is amazing, the food was delicious, the chai menu is fabulous, the ambiance which takes you back to the old memory lanes of yours and the pricing was reasonable too. An absolute value for money deal. What else do you need for a perfect evening. I would love to go back again and is more than happy to recommend this place to anyone.
