When you walk into a restaurant and you want to know what is available what is the appropriate idiomatic/colloquial expression? is it aap ke pas kya hai or kaun se hai or something else?

similarly if you are at a cafe and you wanted to know what different types of something (eg. chai, juice) they had, how would you colloquially phrase this? kaun se chai hai?

thanks

1 - Khaaney/Peenay mey kya hai?

2 - Kaun kaun se chai/juice hai aap ke paas?

should be fine with these I should think.

what AZ ^ said

i would suggest not saying kia hai kaun si hai , it does not sound like you are talking about food
