Foodie ------------ The Great Indian Thali,Koramangala ( TGIT )

   THE GREAT INDIAN THALI A Veg concept Hospitality P. Ltd. is opened at
   Lotus- 612/1, 80 feet road, Koramangala ,phone 918065471151, 91 9341348328

          Cuisines  :
        North Indian 
        11 AM to 3 PM
          7 PM to 11 PM 
  We visited this restaurant to celebrate my birthday party in advance on  the 12 th
  of November  as we had my sister-in-law from Chennai .She  hardly had  anytime to    binge North Indian dishes.

  To specially treat her taste buds ,Arjun suggested we go and explore this TGIT.

  A very good place for vegetarian families , 24 items are served .
   The starters are  quite  a variety and one has to hold the tongue so that
   one does not  miss on other items.
   The chutneys given for the samosas are very  delicious
   and tempting with neither too pungent nor very bland.

  Surprisingly, I did not find any common vegetables
   like bindi, cauliflower, brinjal,  cabbage etc.
   The salad itself is quite filling and tasty.
   The rotis are a variety ,the main course a mixture of all combination.

   Servers are quick and the unlimited servings makes one to go for the
   " man pasand "  items.

    I could recall for starters: 

           aloo tikki,
          dahi balla,

                      main course :
          dal makkani,
         urad,chana dal tadka
         beans and capsicum lababdar
         soya bean ,mutter curry
         paneer makhani,
         ( and one more I do not remember  )

                      roti :
         meithi poorie

               rice variety:
         curd rice
         onion pulao
         steam rice


         gulab jamun

   Monotonous  two types of  menu for the entire week might make  foodies
    to throng  the other restaurant , so changing the menu would do wonders!

                         Coming to the observations:
  • Ambiance is  mixed, not so ethnic or purely Indian "zara hatke"   with a slight modern look.
  • Prompt, friendly "serve with a smile services".
  •  It's worth mentioning the seating arrangements. A low seating where you can fold your knees as you do while sitting on the floor, second the regular, normal ,dining height chairs and tables, the third one like the bar seating . A mix of all types makes the restaurant look nice and attractive. 
  • The not so common menu takes one by surprise , not the typical sabjis one finds in any given menu. 
  • Missing is the Indian welcome drink like buttermilk, jal jeera or sherbet.
  • Last but not the least the unusually shaped cutlery is refreshingly different, attractive and well-suited to the cuisine.
