Reasonably priced and affordable thalis at JLT! Upto 30 Dhs, these thalis are very filling and some are even enough for two. We had one Home Style Veg Thali and one Maharaja NonVeg Thali. Both came with raita and dessert alongwith various gravies that we...ate well with fresh and hot chapathis served alongside. If you're in the mood for soup, give their Murgh Shorba Soup a try! And Mango Lassi too. Great restaurant, best for takeaway and delivery around the area.More

Great concept and decent food but a bit pricey for what you get. They could add more variety and enhance their flavour for a far better experience.

We visited this place for lunch yesterday. We met its owner Natasha who was a great host. We had an absolutely great starter - Dahi ke Sholey...it was yummy....followed by maki ka roti with sarson ka saag. The rajpuri roti was also great. Natasha recommended...hot jelebis with Rabri. That was great way to end our lovely lunch. The food was very flavorful, freshly prepared with authentic ingredients. Jelebis and Rabri had no food colors with authentic taste. There are many more dishes to try out next time.More

This place is a hidden gem in JLT. Located in Cluster B. It is a very small but very clean and nice place. The food is healthy and tastes amazing. The quantity is very good as well. 2 people can eat from one thali.

I have been a loyal supporter of the 800-Thali and have been regularly ordering from them. But unfortunately my recent order wasn't up to usual standard. It grieves me therefore to write this review but I hope everyone appreciates truthful reviews be they positive or...negative. Paneer tikka masala was a great disappointment ?? Because of the temptation to eat paneer tikka masala, I mainly ordered food. Paneer Tikka was not marinated and not grilled as described on 800-Thali's online menu. It is obvious and evident to everyone that paneer blocks were simply dipped into the curry without any grilling and marination. To ensure its cooked, grilled and marinated to perfection, I had specifically mentioned under the the cooking instructions and I even contacted the restaurant to explain the same. Despite of this they failed to comply with order instructions. Mishaps happen but this is willful negligence and I did not expect this to happen despite informing the restaurant. The restaurant shouldn't have accepted the order if they weren't willing to follow the instructions. They could have even informed me prior accepting the order that they can't prepare the meal according to the given instructions. This is irresponsibility from the restaurant management. What I ordered was not what was delivered. I contacted the restaurant owner/manager who were unwilling to accept thier fault and were unapolegetic about it and they refused to send the correct order. The Restaurant Managers reply was "They did thier best and there is nothing else that the restaurant could really do about this" The service was absolutely ridiculous. I felt very upset by the entire experience. I would never return to this restaurant whose owners, managers and staff are negligent, indifferent and unprofessional attitude. The very worst thing I can imagine, food and service wise. People please don't get cheated by this and would never take the risk of recommending this place to anyone.More

It is a Punjabi failing to yearn for Tandoori chicken while sitting out in a balcony with a beautiful view. I was surprised when my host in Dubai volunteered to get the charismatic cuisine of Punjab home delivered. A delightful surprise! I was amazed by...the succulent Tandoori chicken which was a bit like our chicken achaar of Deli fame. The mutton seekh kebab were delicious. For the vegetarians there was the Haryali kebab and the Fish tikkas tandoori were exquisite. We ordered Lachha prathas which is a good idea because they do not become hard like naans after heating. The lachha prathas are to be recommended! Will try the food again before I leave Dubai, for sure!More

I’m still trying to figure out why this restaurant calls itself 800Thali. It can’t be for the Thali, because their Thali is, without doubt, one of the worst I have had in Dubai. In fact, what they serve is an insult to Thalis. Their misleading...name made me believe we were in for a Rajdhani, Maharaja Bhog, or even Rasoi Ghar style treat. What we got instead (after a near 20-minute wait) was…a joke in comparison. And this was the second time I made the mistake of visiting 800Thali, the first was for breakfast some weeks ago – similar disappointment. So, in the words of the late, great Amy Winehouse, the next time I’m asked to go to 800Thali, I’ll say “no, no, no.” Waste NOT. Want NOT. Instagram @ravenousxerxesMore
