Thali restaurant has opened in the Patel Plaza shopping center in Decatur. This vegetarian spot serves a fixed price lunch and dinner of what looks like a dozen or more items. I peeked in and talked to the owner (sorry, didn’t get his name). He told me that each customer gets a thali (a platter holding several curries, starches and pickles, and comprising a full meal). But he also made it sound like the meal would be coursed out, with two entrees making their appearance, as well as some sweets.
There is also a snack counter with Indian sweets and savories.
The restaurant is inside the redeveloped shopping plaza, and it holds a number of cozy low tables on raised platforms with cushions scattered around. There is also table-and-chair seating.
The price for the meal is $14.99, lunch and dinner. I hope to check it out soon.
