Another experience with Rajasthani / Gujarati Thali at Thali Corner Kilpauk, Chennai

Another experience with Rajasthani Thali at Thali Corner, Kilpauk, Chennai.

A week back we had a delicious Rajasthani Thali meals at Shri Rajasthani Dhaba at Anna Nagar. With that experience, we thought of tasting another Rajasthani / Gujarati meals in Thali Corner, Kilpaul ( for lunch ).

The Thali there was awesome with plenty of dishes like starters - Dhokla , Kachoris , Shrikand and then several other dihses. We enjoyed the meal very well. All the dishes were steaming hot and tasty ( hot kachoris, hot dudhi halwa, hot phulkas, steaming hot rice, pulao etc ). The stewards were very courteous and were forcing us to have more with unlimited helpings till we say ‘’ no more’’. Dal, Baati & Churma available on Saturdays and Sundays.

The place is decorated with antique furniture and several kitchen equipment from Rajasthan. It is relatively smaller and slightly clustered. There is only one option for Thali costing Rs 160 / per head and one has to pay for all the courses, whether one like it or not.

Though we enjoyed the meal, my only suggestion is that they should have kept an option where we could pick and choose some dishes ( like Dhokla, Kachoris, Dudhi Halwa, Kichda and Shrikhand - which I don’t consider as Thali essentials ) over and above a standard Thali - meaning that I need to pay only for what I like instead of wholesome meal option. For e.g. this thali is an extravaganza for a calorie conscious person.

One can enjoy a delicious meal in Thali Corner Kilpauk @ Rs160 ( Rs120 for kids and Rs200 for take away meals )
