Chai Street Valentine’s Menu

Looking for a place to take your loved one this February that has twinkling lights, delicious drinks, and the taste of something exotic? Your friendly neighbourhood Indian Street Kitchen is offering up a special Valentine’s Day menu.

We’ll be offering a seafood starter served with a specially-made seafood Valentine’s Thali (made with love), a homemade dessert and a glass of Prosecco – for only £19.99pp.

Thalis are a great way to experience Indian street food, as the meal presents six dishes with perfectly balanced flavours from spicy to sharp, from sweet to salty.

Our Valentine’s Thali is a specially designed Seafood Thali which includes a sword fish curry, a prawn curry, a lentil dal, spiced potatoes, cooling yogurt raita and sharp lemon pickle. All served with soft fragrant basmati rice, crispy poppadum’s and a fresh mix salad.

Not a fish fan? You can swap out your Fish dishes with chicken/lamb or vegetarian alternative.

If you haven’t managed to plan your Valentine’s Day then don’t, our Valentine’s Thali offer will be running until the 28th February.

For more information, or to book, please contact us.

The Real Chai Street!

When we open any new Chai Street we do so because we have been encouraged by demand from loyal customers who have taken our food and our authenticity to their hearts.  When we launch a new Chai Street outlet we share our happiness of the occasion with our customers and we strive to meet expectations, as a leading independent chain providing an authentic Indian street food experience. Unfortunately we have discovered that another business has taken our name and is attempting to open an outlet outside of Cardiff.
