Amit Tea Corner is not the typical corner chai-shop that serves tea in mini plastic cups out of a flask, although it definitely looks like one. In addition to the fresh-brewed ginger tea, they serve an array of fresh foods ranging from home-made samosas (onion and potato-based), bread omlette, bread pakora, puri sabji and even full-blown mid-day meals.
Ginger Tea & Onion Samosas:
Amit, the owner of the shop has nailed the method to prepare Ginger-flavored milk tea with the right balance of the ingredients, he says it’s the way it’s prepared that brings out the best flavor in addition to the proportion of the ingredients.
Samosas, the perfect complement to tea. All the samosas served are made fresh at the shop and not delivered by a 3rd-party vendor. I prefer the onion samosa over the aloo (potato-based) samosa purely because of the crunchiness.
Stuffed Bread Pakora:
Another favorite snack with tea, its bread stuffed with mashed potatoes, dipped in besan and deep-fried – served with tomato ketchup, freshly-made pudina chutney and chillies – best relished on rainy days 🙂
My anytime meal-snack – I love it !!
Its not the authentic Maharashtrian vada-pav, but tastes good – the pudina chuntey smeared inside the pav and the green chillies pack the punch.
- Timings: 8 am to 10 pm (open all days)

Most of the customers smoke and drink tea, one can avoid the passive smoking by savoring the tea at the opposite end of the shop. If you are looking for a quick-snack over a delicious cup of tea and indifferent to the ambiance, Amit Tea Corner will not disappoint you.
