Welcome to Lotus Chaat and Spices – the North Bay’s only destination for the delicious Indian Street food: dishes that will not only nourish you but also tingle your tongue and provoke your palate with a kaleidoscope of flavors, textures and spices.

Indian chaat are among the world’s most interesting snacks. In India they originated as street foods in the Uttar Pradesh region. Today they’ve become so popular, they’re sold throughout the Indian sub-continent as well in Southeast Asia.

Most chaat are based on dough made from a variety of flours. Depending on the type, they’re either deep-fried, baked or steamed. They can be stuffed or topped with a variety of fillings that range from potatoes, beans and chick peas to assorted vegetables to cheese, even other grains.

At Lotus Chaat, most of our dishes are vegetarian and many are vegan. We use organic ingredients as much as possible.

Feel free to talk to our servers about our unusual menu. Many of our chaat dishes may be new to you. We’ve done our best to fully describe them here, but if there’s more you would like to know, please don’t hesitate to ask.

We also sell frozen and prepared foods in our store, imported from some of India’s most renowned food producers. After your meal, come browse our exceptional selection and take home some new taste treats.
