Had lunch yesterday at the new Thali location in Westport (376 Post Rd, in the plaza across from Little Kitchen) -- great small plates menu with generous portions - think this may give Bombay a run for its money. Enjoyed spicy chicken kababs, samosa, semolina dosa crisp crepe (quite big, with many good chutneys to try with it), little buttons of steamed lentil and rice cakes (mini-idlis, really -- very authentic flavor), green chili naan, yellow dal, rice (comp). Oh, btw, the complimentary bread plate -- of naan with herbed butter and herbed (mint?) oil -- was rather forgettable, but everything else was flavorful and superb, and not gimmicky.
Decor felt like the usual Thali style -- not a huge fan of it, but as much as I tend to be a resto decor maven I'm Indian American so I go there to eat, not to look at the place :)
Small plates concept is wonderful -- can try a lot of things but it still felt like it was a good amount of food and the lunch prices were great. We'll be back to try more.
