About Thali Clifton
Neighbourhood restaurant packed full of exciting Indian flavours in the heart of Clifton Village.
Awesome food, great decor and excellent value for money. Our server was extremely friendly and attentive and made our meal extra special by bringing us some dessert on the house as I was celebrating my birthday. A genuinely wonderful evening all round.
Lassi was amazing! Great food. Fab service.
Unfortunately, this visit completely changed my view on Thali Cafe. Previously in other branches my visits have been positive, and the food has been lovely. I visited as a table of 6 on this occasion, and I will not be returning to this branch, as there were numerous issues with the staff, and the food. Our food was lukewarm at a push, and the taste was bland, with the lamb being chewy and tasteless. We were unable to get any water when requested, and we were told we had to leave after 1 hour 45 minutes, due to them needing the table back. I would appreciate the branch reaching out to me to discuss this further.
Went for a celebratory meal for my graduation and found Thali Clifton from other reviews. After trying it out I would 100% recommend it. The staff were wonderful and the food was even better. Excellent.
Food was nicely presented and tasty. Great to have all the components of the meal in separate bowls. Overall very enjoyable. Service was slow and we had to pop up stairs to get staff attention. This may have been due to a problem you were having with your till?
Staff were so friendly and helpful in recommending us things and the food was incredible. I have been several times and will be coming back soon for sure!
The meal was divine. Lovely drinks. Lovely condiments with poppadoms. Lovely Dahl. Lovely service. Lovely, lovely, lovely.
Had a waiter from Liverpool who was superb . Very nice relaxed casual dining experience. Thankyou
Food is delicious and the atmosphere, decor and service is fantastic
The staff are great here. So friendly and helpful and going that extra mile. Always love coming here, esp with the kids, who love it to. Food is wonderful too! Can't fault it.
The start of the meal was great - food came very quickly and was tasty, were offered drinks etc and asked how everything was. But once we had finished our mains it all went to pieces and we were just ignored. Admittedly it had got busy, so maybe more staff should have been working. I was going to request a dessert but decided not to after waiting for 15 mins - we hadn’t even been offered dessert menus. We had to grab someone on the go to get our bill printed. Despite telling them at the beginning we were wriggle customers and them noting our name, the mains hadn’t been discounted off the bill. So had to grab the woman on the go again who wasn’t happy to be hassled. Wanted to pay by card and were still waiting for another 10 so got up and went upstairs to the bar so we could actually pay and leave. The girl didn’t seem to pleased with us for asking to pay then and there but we didn’t have all evening to wait around. Not sure I would return after how things ended despite the food being tasty and fresh.
Wonderful food, wonderful atmosphere, a lovely evening meal.
Always been good each time we've visited. Can't fault the thali mains. Will be back.
Best “Indian” meal for many a year. Great flavours and textures. Nice staff and loved the building and decor. Shame we don’t live in Bristol. Please open up in Norwich.
Food, service and quirky surroundings were all great. Would definately return when in bristol again.
Delicious food and great atmosphere!
Love the way the food is presented.Very tasty! Friendly staff.
Menu not terribly extensive but this is more than compensated by Thali making the few dishes it does offer very tasty indeed! Excellent attentive service.
Beautiful food, really friendly service... Thoroughly enjoyable experience
Great service, awesome food and really good wine. Would definitely go back again.
We came for a (vegan) friends hen do & despite running late (on a Bank Holiday weekend) the team were happy to hold our table & make us feel welcome. The atmosphere was great & the food was delicious - ‘best curry ever’ said the Bride-to-Be (& she loves a curry!). Thank you for helping make her special weekend so fab!
Great variety of Indian flavours.
