A household name in Bristol, The Thali Cafe and its flavoursome Thali curries have won awards from The Observer and BBC Radio 4. Unconventional, makeshift and unexpected, this is an original dining experience where your surroundings reflect the colourful flavours of our food. Thali cafe is inspired by the heart and soul of India, showcasing the hero dishes of the subcontinent from the back streets of Bombay to the beach shacks of Goa. We follow the Indian mantra 'jugaad' (do more with less), that's why you'll find the menu to be simple and select in its offering, using local produce and ingredients where possible. We offer vegan, gluten free and vegetarian options catering for all diets.
