Kiran’s offers a vegetarian menu as well as a children’s menu, and with advance notice, can accommodate those with gluten, dairy, and special allergies. In addition, the chef-owner ensures her staff is highly knowledgeable about the teas they serve, so guests are well informed about their options. She also recommends guests start the experience with a glass of Champagne before enjoying the abundance of tea and treats.

“Growing up, watching my [mom and aunts] having chai time, I always thought, ‘Oh, what a beautiful thing to do!’” Kiran comments. “Our tea service is very popular because it mixes our Indian culture with other cultures…. I feel like it’s such a good thing for people to enjoy.”
