Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I really didn't enjoy the food. I had the vegetarian Thali tray for £20 which includes a set menu of poppadoms, a main tray and dessert. Although the food was seasoned it was horrible, inedible, mushy (as though it was all blended together) and the...taste wasn't right. I didn't enjoy any of the food, even the rice! The food was clearly mass produced and microwaved as it came with a film on top. The chutney with the poppadoms was cold and one seperated as we were eating it. We also got told to leave at 9pm as they were closing, despite their closing time online being 10.30. I definitely wouldn't return. There are much much better Indian restaurants around. Vegetarian options: There are a lot of veggie optionsMore

Visited with friends in January, having previously gone when they were based in the Ouseburn. I am absolutely gutted that I can only give thali tray a 2* review this time as it used to be so exceptionally good. The food was nice, which was...the only saving grace. The biggest issue was the service and attitude of the staff. Who seemed to treat customers as an absolute burden to their job It took a good 20+ minutes to get drinks, and it wasn't even that busy a night. We had to ask to order some poppadoms and other small dishes to start, which were great. The masala fries and gobi manchurian were really excellent. As well as the initial nibbles, we had to ask if we could actually order our thali trays too, as the waitress still hadn't actually taken our full order. After eating mains, we had to ask if they could clear the table as it had been a good 25 minutes with empty trays in front of us. And finally we had to ask if we could order desserts but were told the kitchen was closed. It wasn't even particularly late they had obviously just had a quiet night. Had they cleared the table without us having to ask, we may have had time to order desserts. All of the food and drinks were lovely but that's all we can say was good of the experience. There was a time when service was seen as critical, but now some places just don't seem to care. Needless to say, we didn't leave a tip, and im not sure we'll be going back sadly.More

The food was better than ever, and they know how to mix a good marguerita. The place is nice and quiet and well-lit enabling a civilised conversation.

Amazing food could not fault it. Hiwever bever had such bad service! Got took to a table right next to the door, asked if we could move but were told all tables were fully booked. It was very plain to see there was plenty seating...still left. Order meals it was fab,( but forgot one of our starters) if not rushed, then told before we had even got our desserts that we only had 26minutes left at the table. We were gobsmacked! My friend pulled oyt the booking which showed we still had at least 40mins left of the booking time, just shrugged and said he would check on their app, told us we were welcome to take our drinks downstairs. Never ever had such a bad experience anywhere before.More

Restaurant week offer, for early dinner, service fantastic throughout, warm and welcoming. It was our 1st visit to Thali Tray. Food was plentiful and tasty and well presented. Cold beers went down a treat. Would definitely revisit.

We had a nice meal, the staff were lovely and the atmosphere was good. However, I don’t think the food was anything special. I was disappointed as the menu looked great.

Outstanding food, excellent service and a great house distilled gin. The broken corn fritters were an unexpected find, absolutely delicious. The naans were unbelievably fluffy and all 4 curries (2 vegetarian and 2 meat) were sublime.

I don’t believe there is access upstairs but the downstairs area is and they do serve food downstairs too. Hope that helps
