Toronto Star: "Warm up with Elchi Chai Shop’s masala chai"

Chai tea meet Chai. Toronto has a Chai Shop catering to all Chai fans. Elchi Chai Shop doesn't serve your typical Starbucks Chai Latte, it serves the real deal! The misconceptions surrounding chai have taken away from the entire experience of drinking chai.


CanCulture: "Spotlight: Elchi Chai Shop"

Forget having to settle for those watered-down, sugary concoctions that chain cafés pass off as “chai tea". If you’re a fan of authentic chai, inspired by South-Asian flavours and steeping techniques, there’s a new place in Toronto that will cater to your cravings...


BlogTO: "Elchi Chai Shop"

Elchi Chai Shop is the perfect combination of Indian restaurant meets urban cafe. Run by two sisters, Sayyeda and Sukaina Ebrahim who want to share the authentic chai of their Indian heritage with Toronto. This cafe also serves a variety of chai, teas, and traditional paratha wraps.


What our fellow chai lovers have to say

Fantastic small local chai shop with a wonderful cozy and sunny little patio out front on Harbord Street. The golden milk is unmatched and a must try! Chai tea and paratha wrap variations are also a great treat and worth the trip.

Oh my gosh! Finally found my favorite cup of chai ☕️. What a delight! 💗 If you are looking for the desert 🏜 experience of Chai Karak, here it is...I have recommended this place to all my family and friends.

A desi omelette on a fresh crispy and soft paratha anyone? The wrap was fantastic, it was just a way a desi breakfast should taste - Spicy with a freshly made buttery paratha ... A great option for a halal breakfast or brunch.
