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. ** Winner of 2019 London Curry Awards - Fine Dining restaurant of the year **

    Having been to Northern India on many occasions I felt the food was relatively bland.. it may be the chef felt Londons taste buds are different . Overall enjoyable night except the head of house was constantly shouting and berating the staff which made for an uncomfortable evening ..

    It was clear that although they had accepted my booking for 1 person they didn’t want me there taking up a table. I was finished and out of there in 40 minutes

    Outstanding food and good service. Constantly opening door made us cold and could have done with less volume on the muzak, but the food was so good we will be back!

    Absolutely delicious fresh food, calm but happy vibe — we loved Thali. Made a reservation and went on a rainy Monday night and it was reasonably busy, so I imagine on weekends that a reservation would be a must. Would very highly recommend this restaurant.
