SquareMeal Review of Thali

A family-run restaurant specialising in north Indian dishes, Thali prides itself on its charming service and atmosphere. There’s more to the menu than the name suggests, with dishes such as crab patties, marinated tandoori rabbit and venison bhuna on offer. A more-than-decent local offering.

Good service but poor quality food

We ordered only vegetarian food.  The quality of the food need to improve when compared to other Indian restaurants

Top Notch Curry

Dropped in on my own for a quick meal. The quality of food was excellent and the service was very attentive. Great choice for a top notch curry!

My first and possibly only review of a restaurant. My wife and I really loved the food here they really took care of us. Great atmosphere, great service, very kind staff. The meal was the best I had in London, no question. We really loved this place and would love to go back, but we're back in the USA now and am not sure when we will be next in London. You must try this place if you're in London! We were told Thali had some work done over the christmas period we wont know as this was our first time here but the decor was very nice & warm. A dish that i really liked was the Tandoor chicken it was perfectly cooked!

A neighbour to the more famous Star of India and Noor Jahan, Thali delivers more than either on authenticity and refinement. Spices are well judged and subtle, ingredients fresh and of high quality, preparations careful and portions generous, albeit not excessive. The menu offers standards seen elsewhere but also more unusual dishes, including a delectable rabbit tandoori. The decor is pleasant, simple and tasteful, the service is efficient, and the prices reasonable. This Indian restaurant deserves to be on the map.
