The Thali Restaurant, Montpelier

The Thali Restaurant, Montpelier


A household name in Bristol, The Thali Restaurant and its flavoursome Thali curries have won awards from The Observer and BBC Radio 4. Unconventional, makeshift and unexpected, this is an original dining experience where your surroundings reflect the colourful flavours of their food.

Thali Restaurant is inspired by the heart and soul of India, showcasing the hero dishes of the subcontinent from the back streets of Bombay to the beach shacks of Goa. They offer vegan, gluten free and vegetarian options catering for all diets. Quirky decor, great atmosphere, this intimate neighbourhood restaurant is equally suited for groups, families or for a romantic dinner.

Contact them about hiring the whole back room for your party or celebration. This is the original Thali, located in the hub of Montpelier, it is one of five Thali Restaurants in Bristol.
