“Classic Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

I have been a resident of little kottayam all my life and I have enjoyed Masala dosa from Thali all my life. I have traveled a bit,but masala dosa from Thali is the best. Very clean place and the ambiance is good too. It is a bit over crowded at times but very friendly staff takes care of us.
Meals are okay but not the best. Main problem is the crowd and staff can't handle all of them. Food is great and the simple values they uphold is commendable. Clean and healthy food which tastes good. Cheers! to the management.

“Neat and Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Absolutely neat place with clean and tasty food.The waiters are all well behaved and staff are courteous.The masala dosa is different from the normal ones and one is enough to get your stomach full.They have different types of non veg dosa's also which are quite mouth watering and yummy.The place is well maintained and so is the washing area.A special mention about the meals,vegitarian and non veg.People may comment that price is a bit high,but thats totally agreeable when you experience the hospitality and cleanliness of the property.

“The better hotel in a place with few choices!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Thali started as an exotic vegetarian restaurant which served decent food, it is still one of the better places in Kottayam which lacks many/ any good eating places. The non vegetarian restaurant is Meenachil, where u find the usual chicken and fish dishes and average biriyani. Thali the vegetarian restaurant serves some south indian vegetarian dishes like Masal Dosa etc, but nothing to write home about.

“High rates and below avg. meal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Ordinary service with average ambiance and below average meals offered for a high price. If you want to try this rare combination, this is the ideal place. Of course it attracts guests, but that makes it a crowded place.
