Having lived in London and been to ole mother country, my main complain about JBG indian restaurants were that they were not authentic. You will get no more complaints from me. Thava meets all my expectations of what a good indian restaurant should be. Try the Chicken Thosa. Interesting but delicious.....Can dine on just their garlic Naan...sinful stuff.... Looking forward to my next visit.....

Thava is at the botto end of Norwood, half way between Grant Ave and Norwood mall. It is not in the main section of Norwood. This great location and great food make the place a winner.

We had the chilli calamari for starters which was enough for two and it was delicious. For mains I had the Kashmiri which is apparently one of the signature dishes. It was a great curry.

Best thing about this place is that they have got the food and ambience perfect. Everything is served in the traditional Indian way, naan is great , this place is worth a visit.

We really enjoyed the food. It was tasty and not tooooo hot. The service was excellent. The chairs were comfortable and the table were large enough for all the food that we ordered. Yum Can't wait to go back and have another meal there ;)
