  1. I don't know what's going on at Thali,but the same peole own Tiffin,down on Murray St.Needless to say,they've had a huge loss of business since 9/11.It's also a good place,and I hope that they can hang on...

    1. Last time I went, maybe 6 weeks ago, it was the same chef/owners. The "appetizers" have been around for about a year and a half now--they just have some basic fritters. Set menu is the same. Haven't noticed the cheesy paint job, but will look out for it next time I pass!

        i had no idea they had apps and i've been going there irregularly for many years now. when i sit down they just ask me do i want regular or mango lassi to drink, bring out the thali tray and that is that. live and learn. sounds like it may just be a renovation, i'll stop in and report back (when i get tired of cooking at home since i'm off work for awhile:).

          Hi! Is this an Indian vegetarian restaurant? I've been looking for a good Indian vegie thali place for a while. Where is this place? Any other good ones in Manhattan?

          Cheers.

            Thali is located at Greenwich and 10th in the Village,
            and yes, it's 100% vegetarian. I've been there three
            times; my first two meals there were delicious, the
            third not so good. Details are at the link below.

            As far as other veggie Indian places are concerned,
            my current favorite is Dimple on 30th between 5th and
            Broadway -- the lunch buffet is truly excellent. The
            Madras Cafe in the East Village (2nd Ave between 4th
            and 5th) is also well worth checking out. Again,
            details are below.

              I hesitate to say, but Thali is not that great.
              I concur about Dimple being good, however I've never had their buffet. I go there for their chats,dhoklas,patras and other stuff not easily available in other Indian places.
