ABOUT US


MEHERWAN IRANI

Executive Chef

In 2009, Meherwan quit his day job in sales and along with his wife Molly opened their first restaurant โ€“ Chai Pani, an Indian street food joint in downtown Asheville. Whether it was a midlife crisis or a stroke of genius is debatable. In any case, with Botiwalla, the self-taught chef is now onto his fifth restaurant. With two James Beard Award nominations for Best Chef in the Southeast under his belt, he's finally confident this whole chef/restaurateur thing might be working out.

Chai Pani Restaurant Group

It started with a little Indian street food joint (chaat house) called Chai Pani in Asheville, NC. Since then weโ€™ve opened two more spots in Asheville: MG Road Bar & Lounge, and an all-wood-smoked whole-hog barbecue restaurant called Buxton Hall Barbecue. In 2013 we opened a sister Chai Pani in downtown Decatur, located right down the street from Botiwalla on Ponce de Leon ave.

Parsi Legacy & Irani Cafรฉs

Botiwalla is Meherwan Iraniโ€™s homage to his life long love of kababs and Irani Cafes. In his hometown of Ahmednagar, India, his grandfather owned Sarosh Canteen, the first and only Irani Cafe in the town. Itโ€™s only fitting that the journey that began with Chai Pani finally leads him to Botiwalla.
