Spent a rainy afternoon late lunch with old friends at Thali. We were enjoying the company, but gradually realized that we were also being treated to delicious food. My Lamb Pasanda curry, in a slightly sweet almond and cashew nut cream sauce was so nice to linger over, along with steamy kulcha with nuts and raisins. Seems to be a... More

We've eaten here several times before, but not within the past year. The décor is sort of an edgy abstract minimalist expressions, if that is an accurate way to put it. The service is very attentive and courteous, and the food is delicious. I had My Mother's Andhra Curry Chicken dish (which I have had before) and it was delicious... More

We've eaten here before and the food was great but the service not so much...but that's changed and now Thali has it all. We started with a variety of breads like garlic nan and kulcha and all were good. I've had better but still good. But the apps and the mains were incredible. From the crispy shrimp apps to the...

I've eaten here 5 or 6 times over the past 2 years. The food is always impressive; their use of indian spices is very very good..... The restaurant is quiet and comfortable. The staff are very attentive and try to provide outstanding service. The interior decoration is modern and unique; a bit unusual but the food is great.

Went there last week with friends who know how to order Indian food and we had the most amazing meal. The four of us shared 4 appetizers and 4 entrees with a shrimp appetizer and the lamp chops as the protein dishes. The rest were vegi dishes and everything was fabulous. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. Great... More

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
