There is so much more to Indian food than chicken kormas and prawn purri. Bristol has flung it's arms open to Thali, who really embrace the colour, style, ethos and presentation of what they call "everyday India". Taking their namesake from the original "sharing platter", Thali pride themselves on serving an alternative, lighter and more authentic version of popular Indian dishes. 

The Easton branch of Thali fits in perfectly with the welcoming, community-focussed spirit which exudes from the rest of Easton's thriving food and drink scene; it's an open plan, family-friendly space, perfect for a family get-together or a special meal out with mates. The colourful, sparkling exterior welcomes you in from St Mark's road, and the food is like a great big, warm hug that'll keep you coming back for more.

Bohemian, community-minded and as lovely as the North Bristol neighbourhood it calls home, this 60 seater tiffin-eatery-come-thali-tin-takeaway-emporium is Montpelier through and through. And with good reason - for this is where Thali's first permanent outlet set up shop. Inside you'll find a brushed aluminium bar , exposed wooden beams running underfoot and a heady concoction of colour, light and sound. Oh, and don't forget the customers, either - many of whom have now been regulars since Thali opened their delicious doors all those years ago.
