Delicious samosa!

I only had the samosas here but they were the best I’ve ever had (and I’ve had a lot of samosas). Definitely want to go back and try more now that it’s fully vegan!

Great tasting street food - delicious tea!

Amazing tasting fresh indian wraps and tiffin boxes - freshly made bhaji's, somosas etc. Because of this expect a short wait whilst your food is freshly prepared. Worth the wait though!!

Pros: Wide selection, Freshly prepared, Authentic taste

Cons: Long wait time (but this is due to the freshness)

Super flavourful curry

We had the Full Chickpea Curry Box, and it was delicious! Amazingly flavourful, and plenty of toppings too! Probably one of the best vegan Indian curries I’ve had in a while. Totally recommend!

Pros: Great value, Big portions, Lots of options

Great samosas and falafel wrap

I've been for a 2nd time to Chai Walla, just after a cycle ride to Bristol along the beautiful disused railway, John made me a lovely falafel wrap and the samosa was exceptionally great. Lovely reward after a lovely ride 🙂

Favourite lunch spot

We live locally and this is a regular treat lunch for us. Absolutely delicious wraps (ask for the mixed wrap) with loads of flavour and condiments and their samosas are an obsession starter. Highly recommend. It is takeaway only but you can take your lunch to a local park and eat there after a short walk.

Pros: Vegan menu, Delicious

Cons: No seating

Tasty indian street food

I ordered the bahji wrap and a samosa together with a chai tea.The wrap and samosa was tasty, especially the sauce that came with it. The chai was less sweet than the ones I’ve tried but I kind of liked that, however wished it would have had a tangier spice. The price was reasonable. The only con for me was that the menu was difficult to read as it was on a board below the counter and not visible from the outside and too many people were standing inside in a small space so it was not possible to see the menu . So when it was my turn I had to quickly decide what to have (I’m one of those ppl that take ages to make up their mind!) so felt a bit rushed as I didn’t want to hold up the queue. If the menu would be either above the counter or even on the window so one could see it from the outside I think it would help also passers by that spontaneously want to try the place out.

Watery chickpea curry

Pricing is excellent and helpful efficient staff. I had the chickpea curry and rice Box. The curry was just to watery and soaked up all the rice and not in a good way. just felt like it was lacking in flavour.

Pros: Good Pricing, Friendly staff

Cons: Not flavourful enough , Watery curry, Could be a lil more cleaner

Simple and delicious

Cheap and cheery.

The crust of the samosa is perfectly crispy.

The "everything in it" wrap is a winner.

Delicious wraps

I had the onion bhaji wrap, which had generous tamarind sauce, tasty mango chutney, delicious bhaji, etc. Really filling and hit the spot for dinner. It came with a samosa, which is good, but I recommend asking for a container of tamarind sauce or chutney for dipping.

Pros: All vegan, Fast service , Inexpensive

Cons: No seating - takeaway only

One of the best in Bath

Super friendly street food place with very good prices given how central it is, and amazing food. A must visit. Went back a couple of times, and couldn’t get enough. Also the non spicy version is super mild which is great! Our favourite was the mixed wrap with samosa.

Pros: Amazing food, Very friendly , Amazing value for money

Cons: No seating/toilets, Sometimes a bit of a queue

You HAVE to go there if you like Indian food

Best indian food I've ever tasted. So much so my wife and I went there 2 days in a row. We took the "All in Box" both times, highly recommend. Staff is friendly as well. Only vegan food options, which is awesome. Great experience!

Tasty vegan food

We walked straight past it and someone asked if we were lost, and told us where it was. We ordered chai, everything in a box and a bhaji wrap with a samosa. It is all take away but it was quite quickly prepared. I liked my bhaji wrap particularly. My partner enjoyed his everything in a box too. The chai was sweet and tasted nice.

Just look carefully at the numbers in the street!

Very tasty takeaway lunch

I had a very tasty salad with chickpea curry, falafel and onion bhaji all served in a takeaway box with wooden spoon. Combo looks a little strange in the box but very enjoyable. Partner had the 'all in' wrap (falafel, bhaji, mango chutney). It was delicious. Not sure why they don't accept card. There's a cash point next door though, so no big deal.

Pros: Very tasty, Decent portion sizes , Quick service (even at peak time)

Cons: Cash only
