Cardiff’s popular Indian street food restaurant Chai St, by Mint and Mustard, is expanding at a new central Cardiff location after the success of their Canton outlet.

The restaurant on Cowbridge Road East has seen queues of diners waiting to get a taste of Chai St’s high quality Indian street snacks, and with demand continuing to grow a new outlet has now opened at 15 High Street in Cardiff centre.

The new location will continue our original vision for Chai Street – taking the Mint and Mustard philosophy of fresh, healthy and delicious Indian food re-defined for contemporary tastes and applying it to the exciting street foods of India to create the perfect food-on-the-go experience.

We’ve given the restaurant a new look to reflect our mission to re-create all the best aspects of Indian street food in Cardiff. The city food stalls of India are more than just a place to grab a quick bite – they are lively places to meet, chat and relax and are an integral part of Indian city life: the Indian equivalent of a New York coffee shop!

We’ve selected some of the best and most exciting street food dishes from across India to deliver all the flavours of its famous city food refined to an exceptional standard, in a contemporary, chilled-out and friendly environment.

Chai St co-owner Ajit Kandoran said: “We’re delighted to be opening in the heart of Cardiff. It’s a busy, lively and exciting place, just right for a real Indian street food experience.

“We’ve been delighted with the demand for Chai St. Our Canton restaurant is an intimate, cosy space and having a larger, more central premises will allow more people to experience the exciting street food of India”.
