Thali Express Restaurant Review

: This small Indian eatery with a buffet line plus a compact menu for regular ordering offers each patron’s meal thali-style --- that is, every plate has a different compartment for all the components of a dish: rice, lentils, vegetables, meat and maybe a yogurt sauce, plus a side of roti. Mutton vindaloo (a very spicy goat meat preparation), mango chicken, and assorted vegetarian items like palak paneer are all on the menu, which also features photos of the various desserts and sweets (in two different categories, the latter touting besan barfi and gulab jamun) as well as snacks. As for beverages, you can’t beat the mango lassi, a thick, sweet mixture that is better than any milk shake.
