Our food consists of thoughtfully prepared recipes that will take you on a culinary journey along the ancient Silk route.


As evening descends upon the vibrant city of Vancouver, Chai Lounge comes to life like the courts of the eastern Raja's. Imagine a warm, dreamy and visually arresting venue where global sounds cascade the room over the din of lively conversations. Spicy scents waft from the kitchen followed by an abundance of delicious trans-himalayan cuisine.


Chai Lounge is our landmark location. There is no place like it in Vancouver,and visitors from near and far marvel at the ornate carpets, ceiling mandala's, and the nature-inspired furnishings.
The large central stage features a rotating line-up of world class musicians and dancers.

    We were a party of 3 and we ordered from the chai feast menu. We were impressed with the great variety of choices we were offered. I enjoyed the Thai salmon, mango chicken, vegetarian choices were excellent, the Dahl soup was delicious. For dessert we shared the dark chocolate with ice cream. It was divine. The Flamenco dancers were excellent entertainment and made us feel like we were dining in another part of the world. The staff were all welcoming and made us feel comfortable. Awesome restaurant all around.

    Best service of anywhere! Plenty of friendly attentive staff. Food was quick, fresh and so flavourful. Silk Road Feast Tasting Menu gave us plenty of variety and lots to eat. Live music and dancing was a treat. Our server comped us a birthday dessert to take home. Highly recommend it for a special night out!

    Fantastic ambiance with live music daily. The food platter is a delicious choice as it allows you to sample pretty much everything. Oh and don’t forget to get a chai! It’s perfect. Love this restaurant.

    We were given just the right amount of attention and service to enjoy the Chai feast. Didn't feel at all rushed and had a lovely meal with family.

    Celebrated a birthday here and really enjoyed the evening. It was our first time dining at the restaurant and the tasting menu is a great format - each person picks their preferred dishes and portions are small so it feels like having an endless choice of tapas. Food was delicious and most folks could only order 2 platters and were stuffed. Service was wonderful right from the start with a small cup of chai offered upon entering. We were a large group (7 of us), and everything went smoothly. Enjoyed the live piano music too. Highly recommend!
