    Would not recomend
    Very poor customer service they pulled the I dont speak English card when I went in for help when I locked my keys in my car! and the guy at the counter was ASIAN so weird but thank you Masala Chai for helping out a young girl in time of need

      Did you eat there?

      Stopped by today but did not eat. This new snack bar is affiliated with Athithi on Burrard near 8th. A small team table here and "lunchy" things -- not really appealing to me but there were lots of takers today just after 1 pm.

          Deets, please! What else did you try? Was it tasty? I wasn't blown away by my one meal at Athithi...

            Sorry, should have said i didn't eat there.

            The jackfruit pakoras were the most interesting thing there. There were the requisite whole wheat wraps in the window but that's about it.

              Jackfruit pakoras? Sweet or savoury, I wonder? Someone needs to TOFTT.

                I'm guessing savoury. I'm with repartee, though, the offerings looked pretty plebeian. Was the tiny steam table still there right at the front door, repartee?

                  I can't recall seeing it, grayelf.
