Chai Naasto Hammersmith says
Street food with a seat.

The name ‘Chai Naasto’ was inspired by the beloved Indian tradition of enjoying a delicious snack (‘naasto’) and washing it all down with a hot cup of tea (‘chai’). If, however you’d prefer something stronger, we have you covered. Alongside a lip-smacking selection of eclectic and flavoursome street food, there is also a quirky and rustic bar serving a range of refreshingly, original cocktails and hand-sourced craft beer.

With family playing such an important part in Indian culture, it follows suit that Chai Naasto is a family affair. Run by three distinctly different brothers, Chai Naasto is a vibrant melting pot that offers uniquely diverse street food, inspired by the legendary home-cooking of our queen, Nanima (‘grandmother’). We have taken this passion for traditional cooking and transported it to a setting that is energetic and forward-thinking.

Just as India is constantly changing, growing and moving forward, so too is the menu at Chai Naasto. It is extensive and guaranteed to offer up new and tasty surprises every month. From hearty kebabs to scintillating curries, with a selection of gluten-free, kid, vegan and vegetarian-friendly options; there really is something for everyone.

So, next time your rumbling tummy implores you to fill it with exciting and fresh street food, let us transport you to the bustling streets of India via London in one mouthful.

Tastemaker

Came here with a bunch of friends and tried a lot of the menu (which is saying something as it's a reaaalllyyy hefty menu packed with dishes!). Overall was really happy about our starters. The phulki was light and refreshing, the Indian nachos were sublime and the samosa chaat was tasty. Everything was a bit underspiced though, some more heat and chilli would really do wonders to bring out the flavour and really get the meal going


It's on main courses that I was particularly disappointed here - curries were overcooked and meat dry, were poorly balanced in terms of spice and flavour, and were often bland, boring or almost as if they hadn't cooked them down properly. 


Drinks were good but again, not quite balanced well enough and were largely slightly too sweet.


Overall - a fun and good local restaurant that I probably would come back to again, but would be somewhat careful about what I order. The menu is too large! 


Fantastic Amazing Delicious! What more can I say? I've been to Kerala and the food here rivals some of the dishes I had there!
