Thali Bar

Thali, located at the entrance of Tonka, is a bar with a cocktail list designed to celebrate the wonderful world of Indian spice. Guests are welcome to pull up a stool and be guided through our eclectic cocktail, spirit, beer and wine lists. Although Thali offers a reduced selection of Tonka’s dishes there are plenty of options for a full dinner in a more informal space. Thali is open from 5:30pm until late, Monday to Saturday on a walk in basis.
