This place is said to have turned non-chai people into some serious chai-lovers. This beverage shop in Airoli is famous for chai and bun maska, but you’ll see this tiny placed packed all day as tandoori-chai lovers drop by to enjoy a sip of this elixir as they take a break at work.

The House of Misal
The House of Misal in Dadar is another hot spot for tandoori chai lovers. In fact, finishing a light lunch or even breakfast with a hot cup of tandoori chai comes highly recommended by patrons who throng to this restaurant for meals of missal and tandoori chai.

Chai Pe Charcha
Served in a kulhad, the tea has a distinct smoky flavour that will have you ordering the second (maybe even a third!) cup. Pair it up with some bun maska, and you’re good to go. We recommend a visit to this restaurant in Vikhroli for a super early breakfast before heading out for the day.

If you’re in the mood for North Indian comfort food around Malad, Dilli Tandoor comes highly recommended. While the food has won a set of loyalists, it’s the tandoori chai that we’re obsessed with. Their special tandoori chai is served in a kulhad, and if you ask us, we’d recommend heading here on an evening to enjoy a light tea-break.

If you’re in the mood for some smoky flavoured tea in Thane, head to Assal Tandoori Chai which is located in the bylanes of Talao Pali.

But if you ask us, this tea works at any given time of the day!
