A thali is a meal served on a big steel plate with a number of small bowls to hold various curries and lentils. Thalis are often "unlimited", meaning that you get to eat as much as you want for a surprisingly small flat price.
Shree Thaker Bhojanalay has been named the best Gujarati thali multiple years in a row by a number of food magazines and review websites. Made up of unlimited helpings of vegetarian curries, breads, and dessert, the thali at STB is the perfect way to introduce yourself to homestyle Indian cooking from the state of Gujarat. Gujarati food is characterized as being a little sweet but that's what makes it so unique.
The restaurant, in a small by lane in the crowded old commercial district of Kalbadevi, is a bit tough to find but is definitely worth the hunt. Come at 12:00pm if you don't want to wait for a table. Come later if you'd like to be guided on the different thali components by the very helpful manager.
Meeting point: At the restaurant. Wait on the benches outside until the rest of the group comes. To get there by taxi, tell the driver to take you to Dadiseth Agiyari Lane in Kalbadevi. The restaurant is on the first floor of a building opposite Adarsh Baug Hotel.
Leaders, STB is open from 11:30am to 3pm for lunch and then 7pm to 10pm for dinner. We highly recommend the lunch though.
