Chai Thali

Squaremeal Review of Chai Thali ?

If you’re after Indian street food in a flamboyant and fun setting, this all-day restaurant in Camden could become your go-to. You could start the day with Bombay-style scrambled egg masala in a brioche bun, or drop in for a dhaala murg, which is a chicken curry traditionally sold roadside in the Punjab. If time is of the essence, there are quick budget lunch options such as mini thalis and paratha rolls with various fillings. Have time to linger a bit longer? Then stick around for a white chocolate samosa with ice cream. Street food may be on the menu but the restaurant is also fully licensed, offering signature cocktails involving plenty of subtle, subcontinent spice and a decent selection of craft beers, ciders, hot chai and juices too.

I have never left a negative review in my life and I do realise that this is not a Michelin starred restaurant, but dear me, I also think that you can expect some sort of standard when you go out to eat. Unfortunately, the standard at this restaurant was very poor. Where do I start? Having entered the restaurant, we had to wait for several minutes to be greeted and seated, when finally a young waiter who barely spoke English said hi to us, or should i say to the females in our group only, in a very...

Avoid this place at all costs - even if it is the only food place open

We went here after hearing about a new Indian restaurant opening up near our offices. It was by far the worst mistake we have ever made. The drinks were ordered 1st, and being in Camden you would expect them to be a little pricey but tasty, NOT in this place - the drinks are way overpriced and don't taste nice at all. The 'Jasmine Lemon' drink was disgusting. Tasted like it had been sat there since they opened! YUCK. When we complained to the manager he was rude and didn't even...

    Cool Camden. It seems to be the destination for tourists visiting Camden Market or people driving through on their way to Chalk Farm or Hampstead. Linger a while as there are some hidden delights here.

    Chai Thali is a pleasant surprise. A newly opened Indian eatery housed in a large ground floor space of a commercial building. It is a few streets away from the main stretch. The decor is part industrial chic, part street savvy but the private room is a bit posh.
