Can highly recommend visiting Thali and experiencing the amazing food and service. They change the menu regularly to keep things interesting. I don't think you can book so just get there by 18:30 and you should be fine for seating.

Chef Liam Tomlin does not disappoint with this restaurant. Based on his successful Chef's Warehouse concept a variety of exquisitely prepared tapas are presented to you by expert serving staff. A feast for the senses. You will not go hungry.

It’s nice when chefs dare to take traditional dishes and give them a modern twist. Very well executed here.

Recommended by our hotel chef and she was so very right! Really really fabulous Indian food, probably the best we’ve ever eaten. The flavours were rich, aromatic, beautifully balanced and delights just kept coming. We were in Cape Town for two weeks and went twice,...More

everything here is authentic - top quality ingredients, outstanding chefs, and superbly run restaurant. Indian food is often low quality, hidden by hot chilli flavouring and greasy oil. Thali is the real deal and you can travel the world and not find better. Proper chefs,...More
