Thali's food and atmosphere are a cut above the typical Indian restaurant, but the prices are a bit higher as well. We went for a pre-theater dinner on a Saturday night and were glad we got there at 5:45, beating the crowd. By 6:30 it was packed. We liked the minty Palak Pakora "chat" for an appetizer along with a spicy cauliflower dish. The Coconut Saag Lamb Curry was also very good. The service was attentive and prompt. It is in a trendy neighborhood and we found street parking easily, although there is a public garage next door as well. We like Heirloom the best but it is impossible to get a pre-theater table there on a Saturday night unless you plan ahead, something we are not very good at!
