Was really excited to try the Thali but hugely disappointing evening. Despite being a quiet Sunday evening, service was incredibly slow. 40 mins between courses/waiting, no water offered or refills and had to go up to order dessert & water as we felt like we'd...More

Bristol Thai restaurants are obviously in short supply and super popular as we were unable to get a last minute table last night. But I clocked Thalia as we drove past en route to the jam packed Giggling Squid in Clifton and so suggested we...More

There was a queue when we got in, mainly caused by people collecting their 'tiffin' dishes. Even though we had booked we had to wait in this queue before being shown to our table. However, once seated we were well looked after and the food...More
