Review of Thali in Ridgefield

Thali is tucked inside Days Inn on Route 7 in Ridgefield, but it has a nice ambiance, a bountiful selection for their lunch buffet, including multiple dessert options. As always with buffets, beware if you have a peanut or nut allergy. Ask the server about hidden ingredients; we found peanut butter and nuts in some dishes.

It is a family-friendly restaurant. Note that the bathroom does not have a changing table. The restaurant space is open and great for organization functions. The service is good.

As mentioned earlier, there were a lot of grilled meat (chicken, fish) and saucy options (lamb, shrimp, chicken). No worries if you’re a vegetarian; plenty of choices with salads, lentils, baby eggplant, and spinach (I enjoyed the spinach patty). The desserts included homemade mango ice cream and rice pudding, among a few others.

The pricing is a little higher than our Westport favorites: $16.95 for adults and $9.95 for kids (even for my 4-yo, who only ate a bit of rice, naan, and a piece of chicken).

A decent first experience overall, but despite my delight with the desserts and a couple of items, our taste buds still prefer the Bombay Club and Papadum.

PS One will keep the aromas of the cooking all day long (on your clothes, hair, etc.).
