One of my top places to go to for an indian dinner. Love the re-vamp of the place, which creates a relaxing feel to your evening. The palak chaat and chicken curry are to die for. Not too expensive - great value for gourmet indian and service in South Ken.

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. Check out the extensive wine list, but don’t leave without sampling Thali’s award-winning cocktails!

We were in London shopping, so decided to go to Thali after for dinner and we were so pleased that we did. What a great restaurant in South Kensington, the food was excellent with all the usual traditional dishes plus some unusual items on the menu as well. The staff were tentative but not over intrusive. The décor is very nice and warm, my wife really liked the way the napkins have a little bit of a Bollywood touch to them.
