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!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal while staying nearby at the Four Seasons. This is not a fancy place. Perhaps it was once as beautiful as its website but unfortunately the restaurant was fed donated by rioters last summer and the owners are still recovering.
Very very very good value- actually, a note to the owners, you’re serving too much
Thank you for an amazing meal at a great value price. Top notch!
Had a delightful dining experience here, waiter was very nice, atmosphere was quiet and so welcoming. The food was so delicious. I love Indian food, they had me at hello..I will definitely come back for more.
We love Thanal. Great great food! Never had a bad thing and have tried most of the menu. Very nice owner and service as well.
Great food and service! Don’t know why it took us so long to get here. Tikka masala and country chicken soup is delicious!
Food was amazing waitress was amazing but definitely overworked. So many doordash drivers were coming in and out it was a little uncomfortable
Have eaten takeout from this place many times so when they finally reopened indoor dining I had to try it freshly served and Thanal did not disappoint!
Thanal was amazing. Great modern atmosphere with a hints of Indian all around as well. Samosas 10/10, Garlic naan 9/10, chicken tikka masala 9/10, korma 8/10. Overall all the food was delicious and I can’t wait to go back soon!
I live in NY and my daughter attends college in Philadelphia. Whenever I am in Philly visiting, we dine in this restaurant. The food is wonderful. It’s one of our absolute favorite restaurants, and we are foodies who love to cook and go out to eat.
We had dinner here Saturday January 23. The Covid pandemic is in full swing and we don’t normally dine inside restaurants consequently, but we had no choice. There were only 3 tables of diners, and I felt safe. This restaurant is a treasure and I hope they are able to survive!!
The food is always excellent.
They don't actually have outdoor dining. When my girlfriend and I went there for dinner we told them that we had a reservation for two for outdoor dining. The host told us that they weren't doing that tonight to which I showed him the email confirmation showing that I had an outdoor reservation. His response was "we should really change that." I will not be going back.
It was our first time trying Indian food. The food was great. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The environment was very relaxing. I would recommend this restaurant.
I made a reservation to dine in because both their website and reservation system said that they were having dine in customers. As I was on my way out the door, less than half an hour to the reservation time, they called me to tell me that they were not doing dine in. I complained that they waited until the last minute to call and they were completely unapologetic to the point of stopping short of telling me “deal with it”, that was the attitude of that phone call. Service lacks and attention to those obvious details was abysmal. I’m sure their food might be ok, but I never got the chance to try it because of their poor customer service. Not sure if I would try them in the future, probably not
Delicious every time! The staff is very kind.
Best indian food in Philadelphia hands down.
