For those who like it hot, the sound of an Indian tapas restaurant is sure to catch your attention. Joining forces, Liam Tomlin, renowned chef and owner of Chef’s Warehouse, and Cape Town restauranteur Dimo Papachristodoulou, have made their dream a reality just in time for summer.

Thali is the result of years of dreaming, dedication and pure brilliance. It is also the name of a meal that traditionally consists of six different flavours, making this restaurant a guaranteed treat for the senses and one illustrious experience.


We’ve carefully considered each area that make a restaurant great – the ambience, the setting, the acoustics…
