Located on the Old Brompton Road in South Kensington, Thali serves up authentic dishes from throughout India, many with an appealing modern twist. The grazing style restaurant focuses mainly on North Indian cuisine but also showcases curries and tandoori specials. The menus are based on family recipes, handed down through generations, and enhanced by head chef Dila Ram. We love the sound of tandoori wild boar, for example, or snow crab patties with mint, coriander and spices. The thali offers a selection of dishes, as does the tasting menu – both provide a good introduction. The décor, an interesting mix of cosmopolitan London meets the mystery of the East, ensures Thali attracts a vibrant mix of local foodies and fashionistas. Diners looking for a casual bite are welcomed upstairs to the candlelit restaurant, while the ground floor is reserved for private dining. Check out the extensive wine list, but don’t leave without sampling Thali’s award-winning cocktails!

Not sure if I should give 3 or 4 stars, maybe 3.5 is OK. Some of the starters were quite good, some of the mains too. My fish curry was nothing special and the fish used was of the cheapest kind. Also, considering the prices I would expect somewhat larger portions for the mains...more
Impeccable service (crumb scrapers!), amazing innovative Indian food, and remarkable attention to detail. I was quite surprised to go there on a rainy night and discover it half empty at dinner time, though I was happy to be promptly seated.
We ordered the mushrooms as part of the starter assortment, and they were like nothing else I've ever had, and lived up to the rave reviews I've seen....more
Order Hydrabadi Biryani with Lamb. Not bad at all. Also ordered Bhndi (okra). I am pleasantly surprised and recommend this place. Great service. I will be back again. The only reason, I didn't give it a 5 star is due to the fact their Raita is too thick.more
Very nice food, well presented and flavorful. Portions are modest, plan on getting several. Food is flavorful and the default spice level for their "spicy" dishes was on the mild side. If you like your food spicier I would ask for them to add extra.
Oddly, more than half of the patrons in the establishment when I was there were from the U.S., on a Monday night and the restaurant was full....more
