About Us

Elchi Chai Shop was born out of a passion for real chai and mom’s feel-good cooking. We are sister-duo who love chai! We were inspired to open Elchi Chai Shop because we saw a need for authentic chai in the city, and chai-tea just didn’t cut it. Our focus is to reclaim chai as we know it.

All of our food compliments chai, is made from scratch and from mom’s recipe books. It is inspired by our Indo-Tanzanian heritage, a delicious cuisine that has yet to be tapped into in the Toronto food market.
