Thali is not your cookie cutter
Thali is not your cookie cutter Indian cuisine. There are some standouts that are regional that you won't find in many other places. The food was tasty and served at the right tempertaures and we really liked it

Best Indian food I know.
Best Indian food I know. Would stand up to anything in New York City. Service was prompt, courteous and friendly. A gem.

Thali is an unusual Indian restaurant; the chef makes almost French style dishes and uses Indian flavors. For example I had a mesclun salad with sliced tandoori chicken and a leg of lamb. My husband had a piece of fish and a more typical Indian appetizer, a shrimp samosa. All was very well prepared and the service was very friendly and attentive. I highly recommend it!

Delish meal. We were seated
Delish meal. We were seated in an area that was slightly cold but did not ask to be moved. A couple with a young child was seated near us and the child was not well behaved and was noisy. This did put a damper on our enjoyment.
Our disappointment was not at all against the food. We liked trying different foods and enjoyed the flavored and zippyness.

A fine experience
The menu was diverse and the choices my wife and I made were quality recommendations from the wait staff. Certainly not the cheapest place in town to eat, but you will certainly leave satisfied.

The food is to die for. Even on a busy graduation night, the preparation was splendid, the service attentive, the ambiance perfect for our group of six. Although the menu was limited for that night, the manager told us they'd make what we wanted from their usual menu. We ordered five different dishes, two appetizers, and a bread basket, along with three bottles of wine. Every morsel was a pleasure. Our graduate was happy!

Thali is a simply fantastic
Thali is a simply fantastic place!! Since I discovered this place a month ago, I've been back three times, and I live more than 120 miles away. This time I had entertained a group, there were 5 of us. The reason the noise level was "energetic" was because of us, normally it's a pretty quite place. Our server was extremely helpful in suggesting dishes. One person was gluten intolerant and he made sure all of our shared appetizers were gluten free. I simply cannot recommend this place strongly enough. If you are new to Indian food, they will really help you through the menu.

First rate drinks and food
Started with the delicious special margarita with a chili rim then had a spicy shrimp appetizer, Jinga, and the salad, both were spectacular. The entrees were equally great. Our waiter was very professional and had a nice personality.

I suppose I am biased because I love Indian Food. This restaurant is awesome! There is a Mumbai Cocktail list which is really cool but order at your own risk because they are really strong, pricey, and some of them are SPICY! I had the Chicken Tikka Masala which is one of my all time favorite non vegetarian Indian dishes. It was great! I just wish I had remembered to ask for extra sauce for the next day's lunch! One thing I would caution people about is the prices of entrees. You can't spend less than $20 here and not be hungry again in a couple of hours. Other than that, YUM YUM YUM!

We had an excellent meal at Thali. The food was very fresh and flavorful and there were unusual items on the menu. The fried okra was amazing. I would love to return with a large group so that I could sample more of the menu. Our only complaint was the music, it was light and annoying! However, the service was attentive and we never ran out of water. I would certainly return!

Excellent capable service, food was tasty, and arrived hot and as described by the staff. Very helpful with gluten sensitivity choices. Will be back!

The spices complimented the food but were not overwhelming. The cocktails were very imaginative, perfect for my sweet tooth.The service was attentive, but not intrusive. I would have preferred a little more light.

Great Indian Food
We visit Thali quiet often, food and service has always been exceptional. Parking is across the street and the restaurant validates your parking ticket so no need to look for street parking which is a big plus for the downtown restaurants. This is one of our favorite New Haven restaurants.
