Critics Review
Thali Clifton review
9.5/10
Thali comes highly recommended. There really is very little to fault with this place, and I really was looking for things! On arrival, we were warmly greeted by two members of staff. Their welcome was genuine and not at all put on, which really does make a difference. Once seated, the first thing you notice is the striking artwork on the walls. This gave the place a soul, which is a welcome change nowadays. There is a nice mix of seating areas so that you can be tucked away in a cosy spot, or out in the bright and airy part. The layout also lends itself to large group bookings if needed, so you can check it out for someone’s birthday...

There were lots of free tables but we were seated near the toilet with a yellow cleaning in progress sign next to us. One waitress kept walking in between our table and the one next to us with was only a gap of about 12 inches so it felt intrusive. My husband had lamb which he said was lovely, I had the veggie paneer thali which had very little paneer in it, the Dahl was watery and the spinach which coated my potatoes was burnt. All in all very disappointing as we’ve before and enjoyed it.

Delicious meal, although quite quiet, would recommend going on a Friday or Saturday night. Amazing service.

Nice Restaurant , very charming service, pleasant atmosphere. Portion control was on the small side certainly not generous compared to the final bill . I would certainly make me think twice about another visit , but the Chicken samosas were fab !

The food was flavourless. I got two curries that were the same one was hot and the other was cold. The Dahl was bland as were most things.

We had a brilliant time at the Thali Clifton, thank you. I had written a comment when booking about a friend's allergies and as we were seated the waiter addressed these straight away. The food was amazing and such great value for money. Thanks for having us!

We have been here before but the last few times it seems to be deflated. It isn't as quirky as it had been years ago. I don't think we will be back for a while. You need to up yr game a little bit. Maybe it's us as we have both travelled a lot more Thali is good but a bit worn out.

As always great food and served by really nice staff who are very attentive but with an easy going attitude, nothing seems too much trouble. The basement seating in Clifton Thaili has a really low ceiling height which I personally found a little claustrophobic - this is my only negative comment. Will continue to use.

Great service and wonderful food. We loved the thali cafe in Montpelier many years ago when we lived close by and have been out of the country for 8 years. I’m pleased to say the food is still as good as it was back then. The kulfi desserts were exceptional too. So yummy.
