The coconut lamb saag was an amazing test on a classic dish. Best garlic naan I've ever had. Very friendly staff. Comfortable bar seating if you're solo.

Went to Thali India last Thurs., 3/16. We had Chicken Korma, Dal Makhni, Vegetarian Samosas, garlic Naan, Chai hot tea and the Papadom. Service was polite, prompt and impeccable (they change cutlery beteeen courses and wipe the table of crumbs). The food was fresh, hot and flavourful. As ever, Thali's food was delicious and never disappoints! You can't find this... More

Thali serves a range of great Indian dishes - vegetarian, as well as non-vegetarian. The staff is courteous as well. We found the North Indian dishes particularly delicious!.. If you are looking for more vegetarian options, as well as more South Indian cuisine options, then head to their sister restaurant - Thali Too, located off Broadway!

I ate here with a friend who had been here many times before but it was my first time. Although they were out of the famous fried okra we ordered the stewed lamb and it was divine, as was the spinach dish accompaniment. A couple of dark Indian beers finished off a truly superb meal. I give very few Excellent... More

If you want to experience Indian cuisine, this is the place. Very nice atmosphere, very attentive service. The menu offers Indian cuisine of all sorts - mild to spicy, all nicely prepared and presented. I'll definitely go back!

I've eaten at so many Indian restaurants all over the country and they seem to all be pretty similar but Thali is a bit different, in a good way. Just a touch of elegance & refinement. The presentation is nice. The rice has raisins in it. The molai kofta is my personal favorite. Very nice service & atmosphere.

There are days where I have really enjoyed the food, but there are days were the food has been a miss. Their biriyani, on one occasion was very dry and inedible. But on another occasion was very flavorful. Their weekend buffets are Ok, like the fresh made dosas. But the currys tastes all the same, on some days. So, altogether,... More

I am Indian, and my husband is a picky Indian food eater. We always try and find a local Indian restaurant where we can frequently order from or visit. We have tried a few places in New Haven and this is the favorite by far. The food is delicious, and the quality of the meat is great. They have the... More
