Thank you for your interest in Chaupaati. We keep it simple- to offer the great tasting street food in a great ambiance, with a smile. Chaupaati is one of the most famous public beaches in Mumbai where food enthusiasts enjoy a vast selection of street food from the “Thelas” or food carts. The literal meaning of Chaupaati is Four Channels or Streams. For us, these four channels all start with letter F: Food – Friends – Family – Fun

All-around interest of our team in different geographies has helped us develop unique flavors and tastes which we will bring to you at Chaupaati. Street food vendors in India have local knowledge of indigenous herbs and spices which they use artfully to prepare rich and flavorful dishes. Our team has a deep understanding of the variety of spices, and we use them wisely to create food that will leave impression on your taste buds for a long time. We are experts in regional delicacy with a combined cooking experience of over 50 years. Some of our people started cooking at home, and bring the authentic and original taste to each dish they prepare, while others are trained chefs that have explored and mastered the skills. We truely believe in the statement – “You must cook with your heart". In our Tandoor – our traditional clay oven – we prepare a variety of hot savory dishes from fluffy naan to tikkas and kababs, and we get it just right each and every time. When you are playing with delicate dough and fiery tandoor, the timing is critical and our team have mastered this critical skill.

The “C” in our logo represents the shape of the Chaupaati Beach in Mumbai India from Raj Bhawan to Nariman Point. The Cart under the coconut tree is our representation of the way street food vendors are set up to sell their delicacy at Chaupaati beach. We picked ocean blue for the logo to represent the Arabian Sea that touches Mumbai.
