Thali Regional Cuisine of India Restaurant Review

: Thali brings together the flavors from virtually every region in India and Asia and features inventive dishes like konkani samundri: jumbo lump blue crab and shrimp in tempered garlic, green chilies and coconut sauce. Main courses draw on influences from neighboring regions and home-style recipes such as chicken parda biryani with slow-cooked basmati rice in sealed pots with fresh herbs, cardamom, mint and saffron. Masala salli duck --- sliced breast of duck with apricot palm sugar pepper corn sauce --- can rarely be found elsewhere. Roses adorning golden bowls and richly decorated Indian fabrics hanging from the wall help to transport patrons to the South Asian peninsula. The Mumbai Bar offers relaxed sofa-style seating for those looking to lounge while they dine.
