I thought the food was outstanding! Servers were very friendly and informative. Was a bit slow because there were only two servers working, but that was fine with us; tho it would’ve been nice to have something to munch while we waited.
We had samosas which were excellent, delicately flavoured. Mains were butter chicken, lamb korma and a mushroom entree that stole the show.
Definitely will come back and I’ll get delivery as well. Love this place!
The food is amazing! Lively selection of dishes on the menu. I would definitely recommend this place to those looking for quality, tasty indian food. The live jazz music is an additional great touch for the customers.
First time at Thanal. We were excited to find a local Indian restaurant as we recently moved to Fairmount. Service was quick and friendly. The cauliflower appetizer was awesome. Veg Samosa ok; we've had better - prefer chunkier stuffing. Chana masala was ok; not my favorite - prefer more intense Indian flavoring. It was light and creamy - almost like a Campbell tomato soup with chickpeas. Naan was good and the Tandoori Chicken was awesome! Will definitely go back to try other dishes.
Great food and location! Nice menu …not too overwhelming.
Great neighborhood restaurant. Would highly recommend.
Beautiful food and gracious hospitality. Thanks!
The food was very good, but the service was slow. However, the cold appetizer came quickly so we did not mind waiting for the entree. I was told that they are planning to restart happy hour and I would definitely return for that.
All wonderful. Food excellent. Pleasant outdoor setting with attentive service.
Amazing service as always, plus a surprise birthday celebration. The staff is amazing and always go above and beyond!
I took my 9 year old daughter out for dinner and the food is excellent. The service is great too! The live music was a plus. Everything is fresh and served hot.
The restaurant is not even close to being back to its former self as far as bar, service, atmosphere, etc. the food is this restaurant’s saving grace. It is outstanding. Currently be prepared to sit outside at a busy intersection that is not what should be expected now. Also the bar menu is gone for now, so drinks are very basic.
Their cook has changed and the food is not the same. Are used to visit them three to four times a year but now it will be zero
Basal Rasam soup was outstanding!
Great service and food, my family and I will be going back for sure!
The food was delicious and our waiter was knowledgeable.
Great food! Drinks a little pricey and not very big.
Food, service, and environment were all 10/10! Can't wait to return
Good food and service, with plenty vegetarian options!
Arrived a few minutes before they opened for dinner, it was a rainy, cold evening and they invited us in immediately. Staff was very curious, prompt, and food was wonderful! Would highly recommend.
We discovered this through Open Table reviews while visiting Philly. Absolutely fantastic Indian restaurant with a modern bistro flair. Can’t say enough how friendly they were as well as the high quality of the food. Without a doubt get the Gobi Manchurian (cauliflower appetizer)...just amazing. Also the Tandoor was some of the best I’ve had outside of London! Terrific place
Amazing food. Great service. Romantic atmosphere. Loved it.
Best indian restaurant!
Great customer service
Excellent food and service—definitely worthy of a repeat.
The food is very good but it took very long. If you can wait for extra one hour, you will be happy with the food.
Great experience. Sat outside and there was live music and a good vibe. Things seemed a bit hectic but service was still great and received our food/drinks in good time. Everything was delicious, would definitely come back again.
The minute we walked in, we knew we’d enjoy this meal. Amazing flavors, great service- we love this place!
The food was the best Indian food I have ever had and that’s a lot coming from a food snob from NYC such as myself lol. Of course I had to try the spicy crab naan which did not disappoint! Perfect crunchy garlicky buttery naan. The crab smelled fresh but not overpowering. My Entree was the Malabar Fish Curry which was outstanding. Swaii was perfectly cooked. We came for my girlfriend’s birthday and upon arrival we had to wait an unexpected 15 mins even though we had a reservation. I will admit our waiter made up for it with the desert they sent over which was the Hot Gulab Jamun, something I have never heard of and never knew I needed in my life. So delectable and doesn’t leave a heavy sweet taste on your tongue. I would definitely recommend this restaurant as well as patronize it again. Service was great as well and busy for a Thursday night but it was a great experience.
The food was amazing. Customer service was impeccable. I will definitely visit this place again soon!!
The food here was outstanding with beautiful variety of choices without being overwhelming. Every dish was so delicious, but especially great were the spinach and kale chaat starter, and the eggplant in tamarind mustard sauce with curry leaves. Will definitely be my new go-to for great Indian food.
Excellent staff, great recommendations. Wonderful dining experience.
Staff was incredible. The food was even better.
Food was wonderful. Service was AWFUL. Took us over 2 hours to get our entrees (and they were lukewarm).
Amazing food and the best staff! Highly recommend!!
Great tacos and basil soup.. large plate portions.. service was ok.. we reserved for when they open.. so they ran kinda behind with online orders and table orders.. got busy real fast.. but food was hot and delicious.. friendly and accommodating. Crab naan also a great starter
It was great the service was excellent it was our first time everything was so good
Food great - they're getting setup so things will get better with service. Staff is polite and warm
Best indian restaurant!
We were visiting Philly this weekend and always like to try new Indian restaurants whenever we travel. This restaurant did not disappoint. The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The outdoor setup was really cute with strings of lights hanging around the tables. The food was absolutely phenomenal and the presentation was beautiful. They even offered us plates and silverware for our leftovers because they knew we were staying in a hotel. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone!!!
Fantastic food and very welcoming staff! Loved it!!
