Named after its executive chef, Gordhan Thaal is a quick, casual dining restaurant in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India, that offers a completely vegetarian Thali dining experience. Founded by chef Gordhan Maharaj in 1981, the brand has since grown worldwide, and their catering business is amongst the foremost names in the business. The same high quality of food, executed consistently, is present at Gordhan Thaal.

Ambience at Gordhan Thaal resembles a royal dining hall. The large, spacious area features elaborate decorations, in colours of gold, wood, and black. Functional modern furniture is tightly packed, and the place is noisy, buzzing with activity. Feels like a communal dining hall at a special occasion... in fact, the restaurant is available for private bookings, and I understand many weddings and corporate events are held here.

Service at Gordhan Thaal is efficient and proactive. The small army of servers move around regularly, each in charge of serving 1 of the dishes that comprise your meal. The coordination is amazing, upon being seated, they start to come over one by one, plating your dish. Mid-way through your meal, they'll come around again to offer more. If you wish to have more of a particular item, just ask, and it'll quickly be served. However, visiting with a local is recommended, as they don't speak much English here.

Food at Gordhan Thaal is distinctly Indian Gujarati... in fact, they only serve Thali Gujarati and Buttermilk. There is no option for ordering anything. The menu, which changes daily, is fixed, and everyone is served the same variety of dishes that the chef makes. Everything I had during my visit was authentic and delicious. Being free-flow, portions are unlimited. Prices are fixed as well, budget about INR ₹300 / SGD $6.50 per person for a meal here, which is more affordable than elsewhere.

The Thali Gujarati (INR ₹300 / SGD $6.50) is an endless, free-flow buffet of 15 dishes, which change daily. There is no menu here, diners are served all the dishes, and can decide how much (or how little) they wish to eat. It is completely vegetarian, but dishes are varied enough to excite the palate. I find everything to be well-executed and of good quality, tasty and delicious. The only problem I have, as a tourist, is I have no idea what most of the dishes are.

Endless mugs of Buttermilk, smooth, rich, and creamy in texture. Again, there is no option to order any other beverage, they only have bottled mineral water and Buttermilk. This helps to alleviate some of the spicer dishes, and aids digestion.
