Thali Cafe

64-66 St. Marks Road, Easton, Bristol BS5 6JH

12 York Road, Montpelier, Bristol BS6 5QE

Thali started as a street food truck at Glastonbury Festival after founder Jim Pizer travelled to India and fell in love with the food.

India have been promoting the vegan way of life for the last 1,000 years and whilst it’s not widespread across the UK, it’s certainly featuring more and more in our diets. Do not fear though – whether you’re committed to the vegan way of life, or you’re testing it out for ‘Veganuary’, here at Thali we’ve got you covered.

Let me give you the lowdown on our ‘Vegan Variety’:

  • Pea Kachoris with Pickled Onions – garden peas spiced with cinnamon, black pepper and ginger, wrapped in atta pastry.
  • Aloo Bondas – spiced mashed potato balls in chickpea batter.
  • NEW Baingan Paturi – baked aubergine, wrapped in a banana leaf, served with Keralan samba, crunchy salad and tomato & tamarind chutney.
  • Pumpkin and Coconut Olan – sweet roasted pumpkin in a coconut, black-eyed bean and curry leaf sauce.
  • Masala Fried Potatoes – fried spiced potatoes coated in chickpea batter, served with tomato and tamarind chutney.
  • Chocolate and Coconut tort– super rich, delicious chocolate and coconut tort, adorned with coconut shavings.

For us, veganism should never mean a compromise on taste; instead it’s an opportunity to discover a whole new world of ingredients and flavours.

Spreading positivity from bowl to soul has been our purpose from the beginning. We know the power food has to lift our mood and fuel our passions. In our eyes, food sits at the centre of life. That’s why we take your lifestyle choices seriously and aim to cater to each and every one of you.

So we’ve introduced a new vegan menu that serves up the same authentic Wagamama experience, that’s been enjoyed by all of you for the past 25 years. In true wagamama fashion, our vegan dishes will be cooked to order, using only the freshest ingredients. This time, we’re giving the humble veggie it’s well deserved dues. we think our new menu might even inspire a few non-vegans to menu hop from time to time!

While some of our main menu dishes were already vegan, we’ve expanded our vegan and vegetarian horizons + re-worked a few Wagamama classics too. Some were simple, like removing egg or swapping to noodles. As we explored possibilities we became inspired. Creating dishes specifically with the vegan palette in mind
