Coming from NYC, I thought our Indian restaurants were great, but after tasting the dishes at Thali, they are merely good. Thali's food is exquisite and is leagues above what I'm accustomed to. I had the Thali dish which gives you a sample of multiple dishes and I was not dissapointed. The service was great and the staff was very... More

We were a party of 8 and were initially worried that we'd managed to book a table last minute on a Friday night. We needn't have worried. This is a gem of a place. Lovely atmosphere, great food, brilliant staff. Everyone was so helpful when our party suddenly increased by 3, equally unperturbed when those 3 decided not to eat,... More

We went here for dinner with friends, really good fresh food. You can try a lot of different dishes. The only cons is that you should have enough time because the service is quite slow. Price around 30 pound each without wine.

Recommended by our nearby boutique hotel staff, we found Thali to be a great experience. The food was excellent and the staff polite and attentive. They assisted us in selecting our meal choices and provided two complimentary appetizers as specialties of the house that went well with what we ordered. The young waitstaff were especially good, anticipating our needs without... More

The service was okay, the restaurant was decently decorated, what let it down was the food. It wasn't of bad quality, it just lacked any flavour - only one out of five dishes had a decent flavour, but even that was lacking. Given the good reviews, we were quite disappointed.

Visited London for my wife's birthday. The lunchtime and Evening visits to Thali were amazing! The food was second to none as I have visited many Indian restaurant's. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.

Came here on business as it was near the Marriott. This is a really good restaurant with good service. My only disappointment was that the main dishes were a bit limited. We had a selection of starters which were very good and I then went for lamb rogan josh which was very tasty. The portions are not as big as... More

One of the best dining experiences--EVER. This review is a bit late. We visited 9/13/14. I had made a reservation and had mentioned I was celebrating my husband's Birthday. The owner surprised us with many items "on the house," and it was so delicious and memorable. He treated us as if we were his friends and as if he was... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
