Always such a treat to go to the thali. Today wonderful authentic Indian food, not westernised. Ordering their thali is my favourite where you get a selection of many different dishes. My personal favourite is Kerala chicken and stick paneer. Will always return.

Five of us shared a meal here, everything was just right. Service, atmosphere, wine and most especially the delicious food. Such flavours, so scrummy and different. Refreshing to see a short menu, always a good sign in my book.

After driving a vanload of stuff to daughters we needed food. Came for lunch bringing 5 month old grandson. Weaned him on Dosa and Keralan Nandan Chicken. We all enjoyed it too.

Excellent food. I've been disappointed so far by curries in Bristol but finally found somewhere I'd go back to. Paneer grill was delicious and coconut bread was so morish. Would strongly recommend.

Famous for Thalis but you'll find classic Indian snacks, coffee and cakes on the menu too. Quirky decor, great atmosphere, free Wifi, kids welcome. Award-winning Tiffin Takeaway scheme. Great for meetings and business lunches; contact us about catering for your party or celebration.Located in the centre of Easton, this is one of four Thali Cafes in Bristol. We avoid mainstream locations in favour of areas with a strong sense of community where we can foster relationships with local people and businesses.
