Visited Thali and Pickles on a recommendation from a friend. I had the prawn bhuna and a potato dahl, and it was fantastic! The staff are attentive, and I’d wholly recommend it - we stayed quite late towards closing time and they didn’t mind.

Always been meaning to give it a go and finally did. Really glad I did. I was so impressed. Not the usual overloaded ghee/butter/oil you get with tons curries. All tasted fresh and so full of flavour. Defiantly give the chicking bhuna and Peshawar naans...More

A little gem in the heart of Balham. The food was high quality but very reasonably priced. Our waiter, Mashud was very helpful and polite. We left feeling full but not bloated. Will definitely visit again.

We have been to Thali and Pickles on several occasions and it never disappoints. Incredible, subtle food, very reasonably priced and fantastic service from Mashud. Looking forward to our next visit!
