The Bohri Muslims migrated from Yemen into Gujarat and then to other parts of India. As such, the cuisine has Middle Eastern and Gujarati influences. Eating from the thaal is a communal activity and is considered to be a symbol of unity, equality and sharing. This was the idea behind the Thaal concept by the affable Rumana - ideator, creator and host of your meal at her restaurant. Enter to be seated on the floor around the thaal - the star of the show. Each dish is served individually as a separate course and is placed at the centre of the thaal. The service concept is ‘take as much as you can consume’ and Each diner will serve him or herself. Take your portion and place it in the section of the thaal that is in front of you. The idea is a “no waste” policy, so diners are asked to only take as much as they can eat. The 7-course meal is decadent with inclusions of a sweet, salad, 2 starters another sweet and the main course that changes daily. From a wide array of delicacies - the 'Queema Khichadi', 'Kadi Chawal' and 'Mutton Khichra' are a sensory treat. For the sweet tooth, the 'Mango Ice cream' and 'Imli Ok Kulfi' is a delight. Sign off with the famous 'Paan'.
We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday here along with our friends. Right from the reservation stage Rumana made us feel special. There was a great band playing. Drinks were great. Food was good and it came with an interesting introduction to Bohri cuisine, new to us. All in all,we had a super time! Thanks to Rumana and her efficient staff.
The place is quite hidden, we randomly came across it, located closeby Reis Magos Fort. The Veg thali is to die for! I've had many thalis from different states of India but the Bohra thali is magnifique!
Warm hostess great food good portions and authentic Bohri food. Prompt service and a full bar with cocktails. Live music on weekends and traditional seating for Thaal. We went for dinner and enjoyed the food immensely.
It’s such a pleasure to visit a restaurant such as Thaal. The beautiful sea right outside , waves crashing ,the rain coming down with a music all its own . The food so different, Bohri food which we hardly ever get to eat . Made tasty , flavourful and enjoyable. Must visit in Goa .
Visited Thaal after a long wait on the bucket list. Went with friends to celebrate Eid, were not disappointed. A perfect place to spend an evening with family and friends. Set right across the Mandovi river near Reis Magoes fort, a beautiful idyllic setting, no fancy or jazzy decor to distract from enjoying the riverfront. The food is delicious and tasty. Started with salad of chana potatoes and Moong dal samosa perfectly fried to crispiness while waiting for friends to arrive. Then had Mutton samosa, chiken cutlet for starters, later mutton keema pao, white chicken, mutton khichdo accompanied by crisp Afghani roti, unique gulab jammoon ki sabzi with porotha and last but not least mutton biryani without it the celebration would be incomplete. For desserts had imli kulfi, Ummanali, sheer kurma. Drinks couple of beers , White wine Shangriya and coke. Recommend a must visit when in Goa.
