The food was fabulous probably best curry ever, including the fact I’ve had curry in India - Thali ho beats them all. Lovely decoration in restaurant. The service was good but a bit slow - we were in no hurry - but we did wait between courses. It’s also more expensive than other Indian restaurants but I isn’t mind as the food was superior 😀

Really enjoyed our meal at Thali Ho. The food was excellent and the restaurant has a nice open modern ambiance with spacious seating. As we were a party of 8 including 4 kids, this made for a great place to have a family meal. The service was a bit iffy at the beginning, but overall I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was great and full of flavours. I liked the lay out of tables and atmosphere but really needed some music in the background to reduce the echoes. Service was fairly slow with the drinks maybe because they were so busy with a full house but food was bought on time. I would definitely recommend this place and will be going again myself.

The food at Thali Ho was lovely and we really enjoyed our meal. The restaurant was quite quiet when we visited (a Saturday evening) but still had a good buzz to it. The service was okay but not particularly friendly or welcoming. It felt quite rushed which seemed unnecessary given there weren't lots of people in the restaurant.

Interesting style of serving food, serving the food in individual serving platters on one tray. It doesn't look like a lot of food, but was extremely filling. Unusual funky decor for an Indian. Great local restaurant.

This used to be an excellent Indian restaurant called Maya. Food was delicious then. Last summer they refurbed and rebranded. And by the look of if, changed a chef. Which is a great shame. The idea of small Indian dishes is a good one but ... it is just not tasty! Bring back the old Maya chef and the old Maya menu.

Thali Ho is an excellent Indian Restaurant. The service is friendly and the food has that extra something. The menu is varied and has some exciting dishes that you wouldn't normally get at your standard Indian Restaurant.
Top marks.

Very tasty curry with excellent value for money, the "thali ho" mains are delicious and you get plenty of food. The staff are very pleasant and attentive to your every need, I would definitely recommend anyone who has an interest in curries no matter how you like them (spicy or mild) to go and try the food there, you will not be disappointed.

Great revamp of the restaurant. The Thali box idea is a really interesting concept and you will not leave hungry! The selection of side dishes are brilliant and add great variety to your usual favourite mains. The newly refurbished dining room is light and buzzing. Highly recommended.

Everything was going well until they took away one of our tables to accommodate other customers, the waiter gave us a small glass of cheap wine as compensation, we were unhappy so they took off the cost of one meal.

Over priced flavourless food.
Chicken curry only had half a breast in it.
A supermarket microwave curry had better taste and value.

My partners prawn curry was dry tasteless and maybe the worst curry i have ever tasted. Prawns were dry and not fresh.

They also charge indivdual people each for using the chutney you get with poppadoms. Madness.

Dont believe the hype.

Staff were nice though and interior is ok. Food is not the focus.

Unlike most Indian restaurants there food is not stodgy but has clean, sharp and delicious flavours. The thali selection is the perfect portion size.

IMPORTANT - don't go if you want to have an intimate conversation. There is no music but the noise levels in the evening with everyone talking are horrendous when it gets full. Its the one thing that upsets my family and any friends that have visited for a meal.
Last time we were there, both tables either side of us were literally shouting at each other, so they could be heard. I wish the restaurant owners would invest in some acoustic baffles, just to absorb the volume a bit.

Other than I cant recommend this place highly enough. Amazing food, great service and the quality of food that you would be lucky to find in Central London.

Oh, and if you go in the evening book ahead. It gets full!

Visited Thali Ho for mothers day with the family (parents and mid-25s children) and had a very good time. The food is excellent, but what struck us was the ambience and feel of the place. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good dining experience in the greater area.
