Thali started at Glastonbury Festival back in 1999, when I came back from six months in India. The food that I’d eaten didn’t bear much resemblance to the high street curry houses in the UK and I tried to recreate the healthier, fresher, home cooked Indian food that I’d discovered on my travels.
In the beginning things were very basic, the festival Thali consisted of one veggie curry and an old banger called ‘Noddy’ but the response from hungry festival-goers was so positive that I set up my first restaurant in Bristol’s Montpelier where I was living at the time.
Thali opened, effectively as one of the first ever pop-ups in a shop that functioned as a gift store by day, and has grown organically staying true to a strict ethical code inspired by ‘jugaard’ the Indian philosophy of ‘do more with less’. Today there are five Thali restaurants in Bristol and we've recently opened our first restaurant in Oxford.
