I had the samosas, garlic naan, and chicken tikka masala. It was amazingly delicious. The staff had the best customer service I've experienced since arriving in Connecticut. The decor is beautiful. Will definitely eat here again.

Good Indian find in our neighborhood. Don't let the Motel setting steer you away. Very good authentic offerings. Excellent attentive service. My husband likes spicey and I like more mild and they have both and will accommodate any palate. I had mild chicken tikka masala and shrimp in coconut sauce. Delicious!

We met for a family celebration and we were staying at the hotel there. The food is very good, and the atmosphere is lovely. they were very accommodating in getting my picky daughter some raw veggies (not on the menu) so she could eat them with the Naan.

When you live in a rural area, finding any kind of ethnic food can be a challenge. But Thali is a pretty good Indian restaurant, especially for this neck of the woods. Nice variety, varrying degrees of 'hotness' and some not often seen specialties makes this a good pick for your Indian food quotient. It's tucked into a Days Inn... More

We visited Thali on a non-buffet day. There was no one else in the restaurant. We love Indian food but our usual place is a much longer trip. Thali food is quite good but I'd love to see combination plates or prix fix dinners/meals. For the quality of food, our bill for two people was quite high. I'll stick to... More

Thali is the place that my family usually goes to celebrate birthdays, and we've been going there for years. They have amazing food and service and have yet to disappoint. Thali is easily my favorite restaurant in Ridgefield.

We stared going to Thali when we lived in New Canaan and we were thrilled to know we had one in Ridgefield when we moved here a few years ago. They've been a staple ever since! The best Indian food around and extremely consistent.

We have eaten here many times but not in recent past. This visit was a wonderful surprise. The staff was very attentive without being over-bearing. The food was outstanding. We started with the cauliflower appetizer. The serving size was perfect for the two of us. The cauliflower was al dente and the sauce was tangy and sweet. I loved it... More

I had no idea. I used to drive by this restaurant all the time and never stopped by even though I like Indian food. Something about it being located in a roadside motel really turned me off, but I was wrong. It's a gem. Really too bad of where it's located. Oh well, I guess they can't do much about... More

Have been somewhat of a regular here for years hoping it would be what it once was. The food overall is good, but the service not so good. Family trying to run the place for years seems overly serious and at times angry. At buffet they rush you out 15 minutes before it's supposed to end. At dinner, they tend... More
