Made a booking for 17th of Apr through opentable. When I got to the restaurant it was closed. Just wasted my time

Although a little slow to start with, the food was fantastic and the staff were really lovely. The lady at the next table asked to buy a meal for a nearby homeless man and the restaurant split the bill with her! Amazing sense of community. 10/10 would go again!

Excellent food, excellent service. I was a bit skeptic when booking this restaurant as there is no website available for the restaurant. However, this is an amazing restaurant that had a lot of outdoor seating places. Highly recommend. there was a very nice atmosphere and the waitress who served us was very considerate and attentive.

Great food! It’s ashame about the portion size for the mains there was only 4 bits of chicken and in the paneer side dish it was mainly spinach and only 2 pieces of paneer. Amazing service, delicious food will definitely recommend and go again

Food was excellent. However while the restaurant was informed via both opentable and discreetly during dining that the meal was for a birthday celebration the servers failed to follow through with simple desert request they acknowledged would be executed which was disappointing.

I got to visit a few months after retirement. Delighted to hear that Thali was recognised in London Curry Awards 2019, well deserved. Tandoori salmon was very tasty and moist. Chicken curry was perfect for my wife who prefers mildly spiced dishes. I treated myself to the lamb chops, wonderful. Peshwari nan and pilau rice were great accompaniments. Washes down with Mitchell Peppertree Shiraz. Busy restaurant and take away whizzing out the door at regular intervals. Definitely worth the visit for top quality Indian cuisine.

The food is exceptional in its freshness and simplicity (as in not fussy rather than lacking complexity of flavour). The service is excellent. There is no denying that this is not a cheap place but compared to other places of similar quality, it's probably still a deal. And it is on the edge of Chelsea after all.

Ate dinner with the family here recently- they were able to accommodate a table for 7. Smaller storefront restaurant but clean, simple decor. Staff was very prompt and attentive. Food came out relatively quickly and even when we ordered more food that was also brought out promptly. Curry was quite flavorful and nothing was too hot. We tried a variety of dishes and everything was excellent. Reasonably priced wine list. Overall a great meal would definitely eat here again.

They were closed! I went all the way from west London to eat there and I was shocked to find it closed. No information nor did they notify me. Luckily I was able to take my two guests to the nearby Indian at the end of the road.

We were on a family vacation in London and went to Thali twice: on our first night, and on our last. Excellent variety of plates on the menu, and between five of us over two nights we sampled quite a few of them. All fantastic. Service was warm, friendly, welcoming. If and when we return to London, Thali will be on the must-do list.

I've now been to Thali several times and every experience has been exceptional. Great recommendations from the staff on food selection, brilliant flavors, nice setting. Not your neighborhood curry house, much better and with much more complex dishes and flavors. Recommend it highly.
