Our first time eating Thalia and really enjoyed the experience!

It's not a buffer, but is all you can eat. The servers kept bringing us refills on the dishes and bread (and offered us rice), and we were so stuffed!

If you are vegan, just let the server know and they'll put a 'no dairy' sign by your plate and the food servers will make sure to skip the dishes with dairy and provide you with alternatives.

This is apparently a chain from India and judging by the many Indian patrons, we are guessing the food is authentic. Will definitely come back again next time we are in the area.

Pros: vegan-friendly, great food, wonderful service

Never eating Thali before, but glad we did. We were expecting to walk in, sit, and review a menu, but we sat at our table and the service began immediately! It was delicious! Since the meal and service were obviously very traditional, we wanted to be sure and eat it correctly. At the risk of looking silly, we asked one of the people servicing us named Priti. She taught us the traditional way of eating the meal and advised us not to make a soft taco out of it. When you see the shopping center it is located at, DO NOT be deterred! Inside is a beautiful dining experience that is fun, clean and delicious.

Pros: immediate service, friendly hosts, clean, pretty atmosphere
Cons: in a shopping center that is older loo

I have never eaten in this style before, so this was a completely new experience for my spouse and me. You start by being seated and then washing your hand over a rather pretty basin. Then, multiple servers take turns filling up eight small bowls on a large platter. Then, the middle of the platter is stocked up with flat bread, sauces and dessert. Many thanks to Priti for teaching us how to eat it properly! The entire staff were friendly and helpful, and it was definitely worth the stop! Despite the initially small portions you're given, near constant refills ensure a satisfying (and delicious) meal. Very well priced and easy to find.

Pros: Wonderfully prepared food, Very clean, Friendly atmosphere
