South indian food in Toronto

Can someone recommend an indian restaurant in downtown Toronto that serves food like in this picture.

When I found it while Googling up South Indian food. Basically I'm looking for a rice or bread dish with a bunch of sides that I can dip the rice/bread in to. If there is a specific name for this sort of dish please let me know too!

Thanks in advance.

    It's called a thali - which refers more to the plate than the food. A centre of rice or bread with lots of little cups of curries around it.

    Udupi Palace on Gerrard at Coxwell has a decent thali
    Maroli and Madras Masala, both on Bloor around Ossington are also good South Indian places, but I'm not sure if they do a thali.

        Sarvana Bhavan (brampton, scarborough and mississauga), and anjappar chettinad (brampton) Both have thalis. The former is vegetarian only and the latter has a meat option on the thali

      Madras Masala doesn't do a south indian thali, but their dosas are awesome. Udupi Palace is the best south indian thaili I've had in TO.

        I gave up on downtown Southern Indian and make the trek to the deep burbs for Saravanaa Bhavan.

        Rashnaa (Wellesley & Parliament) certainly does a Thali at lunch-time - but I've never ordered it in the evening.
        All of their stuff is good.

          +1 for Rashnaa.
          South Indian Dosa Mahal @Bloor and Landsdowne does a Thali too and is fair to good.
