Open since December 2016, this colourful eatery is the perfect addition to Chef Liam Tomlin’s collection of top class food spots. However, unlike Chef’s warehouse, both in the CDB and at Beau Constantia, Thali is a completely different dining experience.
Whilst still a tapas restaurant, the cuisine moves from a more ‘Asian fusion’ style to spicy Indian. With warm curries, naan breads, poppadoms and tandoori dishes, this is the perfect spot for a chilly winter evening.
The moment you walk through the door, the decor transports you to India. With bright colours, tasteful art, mosaics and some more eclectic pieces every corner of Thali lends to the theme.
The food it an elegant combination of spice from the Indian cuisine, passion from the chef and beautiful plating in true Liam Tomlin style. The favours literally burst in your mouth.
In order to enjoy each dish thoroughly, I recommend the Tapas for two.
This is about a 90 min dining experience and the cost is R650. You can order wine by the glass or bottle to suit the style of dishes. Wines have been carefully selected to balance the heat of some of the dishes.
You cannot make a reservation so I suggest you get there early, or try a lunchtime for something more relaxed.
Thali is in Park Road, Cape Town, in the old Takumi spot.
