I travel in India often and I can be fairly critical of Indian restaurants in the US. Nothing but praise for Thali though. The food, staff and ambiance are all very good.

“Even my Brit husband thinks this place is superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2011

Thali is actually a standout and noted Indian restaurant, not just a curry house. The food is of a really high standard, and honestly if you like Indian food, Thali is worth going out of your way for their lamb chops alone. My husband is British and knows his Indian food, and until now has always mainained you can't get good Indian food in America - this place finally shut him up. Every time we are in the area he wants to go back. The interior is kind of metallic urban quirky hip, with high ceilings, an interesting water feature and cool aquarium. The acoustics are a little bad for a quiet evening, but nevermind. The food more than makes up for it. Definitely recommended. Well done, Thali.

“Very Decent Indian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2011

My parents live in New Canaan, and we have dined at Thali and gotten take-out a number of times, The food is always quite good. Never had a complaint. The kids love the running water decor inside.
