At Rigaer Straße in the alternative neighborhood of Berlin-Friedrichshain you will find the restaurant Chai Ji, which offers traditional Indian food at a reasonable price. If you like Indian food you can look forward to many traditional Indian dishes with exotic spices. It is noteworthy that all spices are imported directly from India. The popular Tandoori dishes are prepared in the original clay oven. Guests won’t miss any of the typical Indian dishes on the menu. There is also a broad selection of vegetarian dishes – and you can also eat vegan upon request.
As far as decoration is concerned, the restaurant is definitively typical for the so-called "Nordkiez" of Friedrichshain – Chai Ji fits well into the low key neighborhood. Old buildings, occupied houses - this is what the area is known for and at Chai Ji less is definitely more. The painted walls do not shine in the typical color brilliance but seem rather faded. This does not detract from the good reputation of the gastronomy. Both the service staff and the casual style of the restaurant leave a pleasant overall impression.
From afternoon on the restaurant is well visited. Locals and tourists alike can be found in the restaurant. There is a business lunch from 11:30 am to 4:00 pm with a selected menu and unbeatable prices as the main courses are served with a soup, fresh salad and various sauces.
Another special feature that should not be ignored is that the Chai Ji cooks for the Berlin homeless once a month.
