Great Place to relax and chill with your own type of cuppa tea!

To add, the prices and the timings are not correct. I dont think the reviewer has done his research properly on the store. I guess a re-visit is required as the restaurant was hardly 2 months old when this review was written.

If you want to enjoy a calm and serene environment that serves the best tea and food in town, albeit Indian or Continental, the Tea Junction Cafe is the place you definitely must not miss. The ambience is spectacular, with very passionate details that have been adorned to make this cafe a home away from home. The sofa's are unimaginably comfortable, forcing you to plonk yourself and think twice about leaving in a hurry. Once you make yourself comfortable, trust me you will not want to leave the place for a good 3-4 hours. The staff are warm and friendly and have an eye for detail and are sensitive to your special requests. What touched me most was apart from the large selection of over 30 omelettes and sandwiches, they are more than happy to make dishes that is not on the menu. Ask them for a home style spicy sausage (which is not on the menu), and tadaa, you have it on your table. I'm yet to hear the staff say "NO" to any of my requests. This is what I call exquisite service and the most important thing apart from the awesome food that encourages me to go back to the cafe every single day. Yes, you read right, I'm there every single day. Now for some of my favourite choices.. the steamed and fried Momo's ( out of this world), the Chillie Chicken wrap (mouth watering and spicy), the spicy sausage fry ( the chef puts his heart and soul into this dish), the Vada pav (running out of words to describe this awesome dish, Bread Pakora ( just like mum makes at home) , their fresh orange juice ( the best in the world - no kidding here), their cutting chai, Kashmiri chai, fruit tea, lavender tea, even their cappucino is really nice, can you beat that!!... I have pledged that I will try all the items on their menu, since Im yet to find one that I have not liked. So the challenge starts now as I write this, to try and then fill all you tea lovers on my review. Rushing off soon, to the "one and only" best place to chill and relax - The Tea Junction Cafe.

Just read Oliver Robinson's review and I have to agree on a few things :
1) The cutting chai is "wonderfully authentic"
2) "Tea Junction is a place for light snacks – not cooked food" and REALLY YUMMY light snacks I might add :-)
I feel a bit bad for Oliver Robinson, cos he did mention that he didn't know what he was ordering and that he "missed the trick"..
Like he said, Tea Junction is immensely popular among Indian expats, or anyone who has an inkling about India's "adda" culture - a place where people come to hang out, sip some chai, and have a snack (or two, or three) . However, if you went in there thinking you're going in for a five course snob meal, it's quite obvious that one would come away "massively disappointed" . (You wouldn't go to a french restaurant and expect burger and fries....)
Personally, I LOVE the crepes there. I recently tried the Pakodas as well. (The chef was kind enough to oblige my no-onions request, and made them to my order - perfectly!)
The staff are always friendly and welcoming, whenever I've visited. (They all have great smiles, every time!)
I quite like the ambience of the place as well. It's a great place to hop across to after a long day of work, kick up your feet, lounge back in their comfy couches and spend some quality time catching up with friends.

Love the place, the food - the Crepes hmmm FULFILLING, Chai is a must have and the sandwiches are good. Great variety of omlettes and oh yes Mr. Oliver here (except his comment on the chai bit) has definitely got it all wrong. Location n' all.
