The flavor of the chicken tikka masala was very good. They were able to tone downt he spice for me without the curry seeming like it was less flavorful. Also the portions are generous for the price.

I've been here once. They have good snacks. The samosa's and chat are good. If you want to have a proper meal, then this is not the place. They also have gelato there which is very good. you also get a few indian packed snacks.

Delicious and simple indian food. Chaat, wraps and simmered dishes all for under 8-10 bucks. Lots of food, and spicy the way it should be.

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 is casual. You can go there by yourself and sit to the side on a stool with your laptop (they have WIFi) or come with a few people and get a booth. It's a nice place for people trying out Indian for the first time, or people who like to have it everday since it's so reasonable!

Pros: food, WiFi, service

Cons: small--can get crowded

This restaurant is like finding gold!! The food is sooo good, and its dirt cheap. The restaurant is all self serve and so you don't need to tip anyone which is always a plus. The restaurant is not a junky self serve restaurant but is actually really tastyfully and the customer service is good. There is a bit of a parking issue that takes time getting use to. The staff is really nice, and they dress very casual. They have lots of different choices from wraps, to samosa and lots of different entree with choice of naan and rice. If your looking for something really quick, good taste, and extremeley cheap this is a must try.

PROS: Clean, good staff, cheap!
CONS: Parking is hard to find!

Chaat Cafe is becoming my favorite lunch destination. It's best to wait until noon to go as the high schoolers have moved on by then. The wraps make a delicious, filling lunch and most are priced between $5-$6. If the spice is too heavy try a mango lassi which helps cool the palate. The staff is fast and friendly.

Chaat is the best lunch spot in berkeley. You can find a number of great low-priced options. The delicious tandoori wraps seem to be their claim to fame, but the daily specials are my recommendation. They make a different special everyday including some curries and some tandoori dishes. The tandoori salmon on fridays is to die for and only $7.99 for a full lunch including rice, garlic naan and a small side of dal.

Very good Indian food. Casual setting with helpful and friendly staff. The stuffed naans are terrific. Strawberry Lassi (smoothie) is good. Been to three locations and they were all good.

I highly recommend the chicken wrap! It is absolutely delicious. The curries are good too! Great when you want top-rate indian food at inexpensive prices.

Great Food and friendly staff make this place a great find. Berkeley has become so congested with indian restaurants, many of them very bad, but this one is a gem. The wraps are fantastic and the naan in general is the best I've had. I've tried all the famous Indian restaurants in the bay area Vic's, Breads of INdia, Naan n'curry, ajanta, Cafe Raj, but Chaat Cafe has the best overall experience and is consistently good!

We love this place!!! We have taken many friends here and
the food is consistently good and the service always friendly
and efficient. The menu isn't as extensive as other Indian
restaurants but we (or friends) have tried almost everything
on the menu. There are daily lunch/dinner specials with
a vegetarian choice and a non-vegetarian choice.
There are about 10-12 different chaat (appetizers) from
pakora,samosas, mini poori. The veggie wrap is
excellent. (There are meat wraps as well) There are several different naan breads to choose from including onion, garlic and pesto. They have tasty daal soup. The food is mild
to medium spicy (the way I like it) I'm not sure if the
hot,spicy fan would find this food exciting enough. The biggest problem we have encountered is ordering so many
dishes that we run out of room on the ample size tables!

Editorial from

Chaat Indian snacks are what Americans might call small plates, good for grazing. Chicken and lamb snacks are from the tandoor, while Indian breads and spicy vegetable melanges, including little lentil dumplings, are all savory treats.
