Born and raised in the charming city of Norwich. He’s the brain behind Mon Chai, a great place to eat. It fits right into Norwich’s lively cafe scene. Jahangir’s journey doesn’t begin or end with Mon Chai; it’s a story woven with passion, innovation, and a deep-rooted love for Bengali food.

If Jahangir’s name sounds familiar, it might be because you’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the vibrant flavours of Indian street food at Dhaba at Fifteen. It’s located on Magdalen Street. This award-winning restaurant is a testament to Jahangir’s commitment to bringing authentic Indian cuisine to Norwich while supporting local businesses.

But Jahangir’s ambitions didn’t stop there. With a desire to explore new horizons and create unique dining experiences, he decided to venture into uncharted territory. Thus, Dhaba 15 was born—a haven for foodies seeking bold flavours and innovative dishes, all sourced from local suppliers and artisans.

And now, Jahangir has set his sights on a new venture: Mon Chai. Nestled in the vibrant cafe culture of Norwich, Mon Chai is more than just a restaurant—it’s an Bengali-style chai house where guests can savour the aromatic delights of chai tea infused with exotic spices and flavours.

At Mon Chai, Jahangir invites diners to embark on a journey unlike any other. Here, traditional Indian flavours meet modern twists and innovative techniques. From the fragrant aroma of freshly brewed chai to the tantalising array of street food-inspired dishes, every aspect of the Mon Chai experience reflects Jahangir’s vision and dedication to his craft.
