A visit on a Sunday evening we thought would be quiet. Not a bit of it as the Thali Cafe was very well supported.
This is not a pace if you want the bright red colours and strong flavours of our local curry house, but the lamb kofta thali that I had and the chicken thali my wife had, were both full of delicate flavours that seemed home made.

All in all a very good meal, decent, attentive service (although thy were short-staffed) and my only very minor complaint was that the excellent kulfi was still frozen solid upon it arrival at the table.

Fantastic food, fantastic prices, you won't be disappointed, the only downside - the toilets are somewhat dated - but that is being picky at these prices and quality of food!

Came here on recommendation from a work colleague. Being based in neighbouring Bath, going out to eat in Bristol/Clifton area (travelling to and fro) means I want to make sure i'm going to have a good meal! And the Thali Cafe didn't dissappoint. Both my dining partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal and since there isn't something like this in Bath, we'll gladly go again.

More interesting and a bit more authentic than your standard Indian restaurant but sadly the food was more pre-packed supermarket than Mumbai street food. The food wasn't altogether bad, the service and atmosphere were good. If you frequent regular Indian restaurants it's worth giving Thali cafe a go for a change.

A happy, colourful, informal place with a laid-back vibe. South Indian veggie food, very tasty and healthy – the marsala dosa is fantastic. Nice friendly staff. Great for all ages. Gets busy so it may be a good idea to book at peak times.
