Upon Jim Pizer’s travel’s to India, he was inspired by the food which was presented to him eventually motivating Jim to open his own Indian restaurant in Bristol. Jim initially began selling Indian street food from his food truck called Thali Café at Glastonbury Festival and now he has five restaurants with recipes crafted by chef and author, Meera Sodha.
Jim’s stainless-steal tiffin lunchboxes are one of the main attractions for people when visiting the café and he continues to give them out when customers ask for a takeaway. Popular dishes include Keralan nandanchiclen which are chicken thighs in a coconut, cumin and cardamom sauce as well as the “smoky, earthy and surprisingly meaty” mushroom and walnut samosa.
Jim says, “we’re inspired by the Indian philosophy of doing more with less, offset by aspects of our festival heritage.” The description of the food makes our mouth water so if you are a Bristol local or are visiting, then make sure you pop in for a traditional thali of Indian cuisines!
