Description: 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 groups; hire the whole upstairs for your party or celebration. Located in the vibrant Totterdown, 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.

I visited here with my partner on a Friday night after reading about it in 'the Naked Guide to Bristol' book which we bought before moving here. They kept raving about it and being so close to our home we felt it was about time we tried it.
We skipped the starters not being so hungry (next time!) and instead had poppodums and dips which were delicious. For main I had the dairy free Thali which was really nice with lots of different things going on which I love. My partner had the sticky mango panner shish which he also really rated. The meal was tasty and we're pleased it lived up to expectations.
We'd probably book a table next time as the table we had was pretty much bang smack in the middle of the restaurant right next to the bar and we would have preferred being on one of the ones next to the window or walls with a bit more privacy (granted - we didn't say anything and they might have let us sit there - I was assuming they were probably reserved). Also be aware that the 2 for 1 cocktails menu on the website isn't at all the restaurants, and not the one in Totterdown.
All in all we had an amazing meal and will definitely be returning, we had a tasty good value meal and left happy.

Fabulous food, great service and lovely venues (favourites being Totterdown and Tobacco Factory). Family friendly but also great for couples, family meals out etc. Love the specials board options and we've just bought our own thali carrier and plates - yum!

Having moved to Totterdown recently, we tried out the Thali café for a Friday evening meal. It was delicious! The curry was so tasty and the sundries were great. The service was very attentive and the pricing was very reasonable for the amount you get. Highly recommended!
