“Food pretty good - service so bad, we'll never go back”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

I am all done with Thali. I Have had some really good food there, but here are my most recent two trips:

1. Ultra slow service with people from out of town visiting. Food medium cold when it arrived. Server ambivalent and would disappear for 20 minutes at a time.

2. Went in. Was seated on second floor in otherwise deserted restaurant for dinner. Waited 20 minutes. No one came. We walked out. No one noticed.

“"The chicken curry is great"”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This is the best place to get curry, tandoori, naan, and other Indian specialties. I reccomend the lunch buffet, as it is less expensive and you get to sample without ordering.

“Good Indian Food”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

The food here was really good. Great samoosas, the tandoori chicken was really good, so was the chicken tikka masala and the aloo gobi. The breads, naan and paratha were hot and delish and the glasses of house wine were yummy. Definitely recommend it.

“Excellent meal”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Try the mango lassi if you're there, and they do serve wine by the glass if you ask for it. Traditional Indian cuisine at a very nice price.

“Great Monday Dinner Buffet”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Thali accpets the meal cards that are part of the glass school at the Corning Museum of Glass. Students who had been there before highly recommended the Monday night dinner buffet. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The food was tasty and the flavors ranged from mild to somewhat hot (I like the hottest curries and they weren't found). Nonetheless what I had was very good. On the down side the meat protein options were very limited. I suppose this is okay for the Hindu crowd but I generally like a bit more meat.
