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:).

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.
