I have a quarterly catch-up over lunch with a business connection and we always struggle to decide where to eat. This time we went for the Thali Cafe. The location right by the riverside is beautiful and takes away all stress which a busy week can have build up and prepare you for a delicious lunch. We where greeted by... More

Came here after hearing rave reviews from friends and colleagues. We'd booked a table and we're seated straight away. Waitress was lovely.

We ordered the harissa lamb thali which was impossible to eat in... More

Went with a group of friends in Jan. had to wait half an hour before we could sit down even though we had booked (its okay it happens on a friday night).

Visited at lunchtime, there were two of us, one is a Coeliac so was pleased that there was a good selection on the menu. We both elected for the lunchtime Thali (Beef or Sweet Potato) - I've read comments about authenticity etc, I can't really comment about that, regardless of that it was very enjoyable. The owners / staff are... More

Main point in the title. Very friendly staff, nice selection of ales and drinks. The food was nice I must say, will probably go again. Just don't turn up expecting a real thali experience because having had thali in India myself, this was more of a western take on it. Nice though.

The food is always really good - lovely aromatic flavours. The staff have so far always been very friendly and happy to help describe options on the menu and offer guidelines as to what's gluten free etc. Lots of choice and a lovely atmosphere both inside and outside!

Really nice people ; really nice food , what's not to like? Atmosphere very relaxed sitting outside on a sunny summers day would be nice. Bottled beers only. House wine good value by the look of it.
