I don't eat here very often just because I'm not huge into Indian food, but when I do, it's always delicious! The staff is friendly and the food is really good, and the atmosphere...

A Taste of India 10/22/2005

Chaat Cafe serves a very extensive menu of different authentic Indian dishes that it would take many visits just to try everything. Quite honestly, I can't fully appreciate Indian cuisine because many of the curries end up tasting too similar for me. It all does taste very good though. My only complaint about Chaat Cafe is that portions seems small for what you pay. Perhaps it's not meant to be scarfed down but with so many wonderful flavors it's like a party in my mouth! I would suggest a dish but I can't think of anything that particularly stood out - go ahead and pick anything on the menu because you can't really go wrong. more

Cute Little Place, reminiscent of India 9/16/2005

I went to this place with my friend during when I was very interested in the Indian culture. She had told me that chaat is very light, small foods much like dimsum. She brought me here to Chaat Cafe to show me how good chaat was, and indeed Chaat Cafe was indeed delicious. Because Chaat is small "finger" food, the prices of chaat are not much, so the prices here at Chaat Cafe were very reasonable. Many of the items were good, especially their puris. Try their puris with a little mint-chutney and tamarind sauce-- and you'll be set. The location is very central on University Ave. in Berkeley. From the outside, it looks very urban but inside, it is cute with little Indian decorations which made me feel like I was in a chaat house in India! The atmosphere is great here, and I recommend this place! more

Solid Food, Within Student Budget 8/15/2005

I would have to place Chaat Cafe near the top of Indian places close to campus. A clean, pleasant place with too much seating (every time I've gone at least) and friendly staff (of one or two). I am not an expert on Indian food, but I do know that it offers plenty of the typical choices to keep me happy, and if you go with someone in the know on Chaat, you'll likely find something to love. The prices are a dollar or two above Naan N' Curry, but in return it offers an unobtrusive atmosphere and you don't smell like smoke afterward. They have forgotten to bring part of an order once or twice, but it is not a big problem and easily remedied. I highly recommend it for a pleasant dinner when craving Indian food. more
