I would like to avoid FOMO and the best way to do this is to try out new restaurants. Chai Thali is a new restaurant, starting from street food stall to now permanent location in Camden.
Voted Best Indian Restaurant by Resident Magazine 2017, meant that I was very happy that Oran suggested we try Chai Thali. A few more words below by the restaurant themselves to provide some background.
"From the chaotic streets of Old Delhi to the bustling metropolis of Mumbai and on south to the glittering seashores of Kerala, we scoured the sub-continent to bring you the very best of India’s street food. Rooted in tradition, bursting with aromatic spices and brought to you with a contemporary twist, Chai Thali is a nation of street food all in one place.
Blending the old with the new, Chai Thali is all about India’s traditional and modern street food cultures. Our authentic kerb-side snacks and sharing plates are delicious paired with a craft beer or one of our spice-infused signature cocktails."
As a restaurant the premise is small plates to share, but they do so larger mains which are ideal for feasting.
Curry club is all about sharing. Chai Thali offers this and the way we ordered and asked the restaurant to accommodate made this easier. So between the four of us we ordered:
Since I went to Chai Thali, a lot has happened in the month Mainly that I have become a father. Because of this, I have had to enlist the help of my fellow curry club people for their feedback as my memory is a bit hazy.
Here is some of there feedback below:
Chai Thali is a restaurant I would definitely recommend. Slightly hidden away in Camden you will most probably get a seat. Go as a group or a couple, hell, go alone. Big a few dishes, be rave and I'm confident that you will be satisfied.
OMG: sharing is caring
WATCH OUT: I can't complain to be honest
GOOD TIMES: lovely lamb chops
