I parked near the tracks in Westheimer & was treated to a Lovely high end ambience in a converted office building. Truth to tell, I felt underdressed in Bermuda Shorts & a collar shirt. However, I am who I am & I came to eat! I very much liked the cherry wood accents, the lovely display of wine & glassware and the overall lovely dining room.

Here is the description from their menu of what a Thali is:
A gastronomic delight, the traditional Indian thali is an assortment of 6-12 dishes including: bread, rice, lentils, meat, vegetables, yogurt, chutney and dessert. It is a well-balanced meal with an adequate proportion of all food groups. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian “science of life”, teaches that food should be our medicine. Meals should have a balance of all six tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, astringent and pungent. These six tastes nourish the three energies in our bodies: vata (energy of movement), pitta (energy of transformation) and kapha (energy of creation). The Indian thali has all six tastes to nourish the three essential energies in our body. Our Thali lunch menu is a gourmet take on this Indian tradition.

I will also say that the service was attentive, but not excessively so and they were well engaged with the clientele. Rudy and AJ were on the floor this particular day, and I found them to be making their callbacks right on time. Chef Verma was also visible and greeted several regular customers, taking time to chat with a couple of kindly old ladies sitting near where I was seated.
