Thali Indian & Thai Cuisine

The menu at this Indian-Thai restaurant is densely populated with a plethora of items from both namesake countries, but the bulk of selections are from the owner's native India. House specialties include dosas, a southern Indian pancake rolled with choice of fillings such as onion masala, mushroom cheese, and chicken tikka; and the namesake thali, a traditional means of small-plate dining in which foods are arranged in little bowls on a round tray and tend to include rice as the central component. The signature thali comes with salad, wispy papadum wafers, rice, nan bread, raita, chutneys, and dessert. Otherwise, the menu offers fresh, reliable renditions of samosas, Indian flatbreads, tandoori, biryani, vindaloo, and the like, along with standard Thai curries and noodle dishes. Service is friendly, prices top out at $15, and the liquor license should be in place soon; meanwhile, BYOB.
