The word “thali” refers to the platter that holds an array of individual dishes that make a complete Indian meal (no need to order a la carte!). Our thali menu changes monthly to feature dishes appropriate to the season, and to use what’s best in the market. Meals are served on traditional stainless steel thali plates.

What's a Thali?
April's Thali features flavors of Nepal, including the 'king' of vegetables in Nepal, asparagus. We serve tender spring asparagus in a simple 'tarkari' with potatoes, onions, and spices. The other sabzi is a mixed veg and paneer bhatuwa, napped with a spicy tomato cream sauce. A Nepali 'achaar' salaad with roasted sesame dressing, and banana raita with a drizzle of tamarind on top, complete the meal.

Inspired by Nepali Alu Achar, our Salaad uses fewer potatoes and more carrots and cucumbers, and a dressing of freshly ground roasted sesame seeds with lime juice, green chilies and salt

Banana Raita - the curious combination of banana with roasted cumin and black salt is surprisingly delicious; especially with a squiggle of tamarind chutney on top
