“Great Indian tapas! Delicious!”

Love this place - it was the best Indian food we ever had! They serve a tapas style Indian menu, three courses and each course consists of around 2-4 different dishes and tastes. The tapas menu serves two. It was really yummy - I loved every course!
They also have great wines there! We loved the Alphabetical and had a great evening.
The service is very attentive.
The atmosphere simple and loud (that is maybe the only to complain...)

At at Thali last night on someone's recommendation. It was great that one didn't need to make a booking and you could simply walk in and get a table.

The food is interesting as it is basically a 4-course set menu @ R650 for two. My wife and I don't eat meat so we settled on the veg menu and swapped some fish dishes from the standard menu.

Food was excellent, the nan bread was the best I have ever had. The indian fish taco was incredible. Probably the tastiest dish I have ever eaten.

Service was very attentive. Maybe the last course took a little bit too long. But they do warn you. At the end they bought some complementary indian sweets which was a yummy cardamom toffee ball.

All in all a great and novel experience.

The only thing it doesn't have is the polish and plushness that the bombay brasserie at the taj has.

But am sure we will be back.

This is Indian food at its best for me, given that that Tapas format allow you to taste across a range of flavours and ingredients. Wine list well thought out given the weight of the food. Service efficient and friendly, all in an hip and funky space. Get there early, as it fills up really quickly!
