#LBBPicks: 5 Soul-Satisfying South Indian Thalis Starting At INR 160

Shortcut

While there are many places in town that serve South Indian dishes, not many offer South Indian thalis. Team LBB went out and about to hunt for some awesome Keralian and Andhra thalis and here's what we found. 

Chopsticks Spice Malabar

Chopsticks Spice Malabar at Viman Nagar is known for its authentic Keralian fare at a budget-friendly price. Ranging between INR 160 and INR 230, their special thalis come in five variations - veg, chicken, fish, prawns and mutton. Served on traditional banana leaf, we highly recommend you try the veg meal comprising spicy rasam, pappadams, rice, avial, payasam and more.

Malabar Xpress

Malabar Xpress at Salunkhe Vihar has our heart for very many reasons. For starters we absolutely love their Sunday special 12-course Keralian sadhya and their South Indian buff thali for INR 250. Secondly, they are open till 3.00 am everyday. Now, that's pretty cool.
