For Indian food lovers this is place to be and great food you get and in proper Indian thali style. It's run by Punjabi family and was literally equivalent to home made Indian food. Must try.

We noticed this small restaurant while passing on the tram #14, and in an effort to limit spending on food we stopped here. Although twice the cost in similar restaurant in Europe, it's still a bargain in pricey Zürich. Take out is available.

Went here as it was close to the hotel and the place I wanted to go was booked. It's essentially a takeaway with 7-8 tables for eating in. They only offered the buffet on the night I was there rather than full menu. Chicken curry, Tarka dhal, paneer, Bombay aloo, all good, better than in some restaurants I've been to.... More

The place offered decent indian food. We were able to get dinner buffet on one day due to some large group reservation. The ala-carte items are decent but a bit pricey for the quality.

Went because we had a Dein Deal offer. The food and service was good. The Dein Deal offer was very good value. As there were three of us (the offer wass for two) we order other things as well. We particularly enjoyed the Garlic Naan and samosas. If we were in the area again we would go again.

Thali is an average Indian restaurant which serves decent Indian food for an average price of 22 Swiss frank per person. The staff is very cooperative, the service is quick, however the food quality is just average. I think, you will enjoy the food if you do not compare the prices or quality that you can get in India.

They serve good food and service is friendly. However, I have had better Indian food in a nicer location in Zurich for less money.

I decided to go to Thali during a recent business trip to Zurich after checking out the reviews here on tripadvisor. After a weeklong stay in Switzerland, enjoying the local cuisine, I was ready for some Desi food; I wasn’t disappointed. The place: As others have mentioned, Thali is a nice little hole-in-the-wall. Nothing fancy, with simple café-style décor. It... More

We went there with a groupon thinking that it was a restaurant but it is mainly a self-service. The food was good but heavy to digest. Rooms are badly furnished and the waiters aren't neither professional nor welcoming. Could be a good place just for a fast meal.
