Street tapas lunch was exceptional! The food is so fresh and tasty. Cannot find a fault with any aspect of our visit. The service was brilliant. We enjoyed it so much, that we bought vouchers as gifts for our family for their Christmas.

Just home after enjoying a lovely meal here; mixed pakora starter to share, chicken masala and lamb buhna for main, along with vegetable rice and garlic naan. Great tastes, and good service, glad we took up Tam Cowans recommendation.

Excellent Indian spices, friendly and attentive staff, warm atmosphere. They put balloons on our table to celebrate my wife's birthday, and the owner Praveen came out of the kitchen to talk to us. The concept of good Indian cooking using local Scottish produce is a winner.

Visited before a concert and was really impressed by the high quality service and excellently presented tasty dishes. My chicken pakora, lamb rogan josh and peshwari naan were all stunning. Recommend.

We chose Tabla as we had heard it was cooking up great food and had great reviews. 4 adults went after a couple of pints on a Saturday evening and were not disappointed. This isn't your typical 'curry house after loads of pints' place. There was a nice buzz to the place and Praveen was at the entrance to welcome... More

Fantastic night, food was great and the service was excellent! Booked in advance for 14 people but happily increases the booking when I added more people. Balloons and decorations provided and the cherry on the top was an amazing birthday cake. The cake was of a excellent quality you would expect from a high end bakers. I've been here many... More

Staff were happy to spend a little time explaining the dishes to me so I got a meal which was perfect for my tastes. Good sized portions which were hot, fresh, tasty, served quickly and with a smile - what's not to like ? Perhaps a little more expensive than some and the menu didn't seem that big but overall,...

Perth's only Authentic Indian Restaurant. Owned and run by Praveen Kumar and his wife Swarna Kumar, both born and brought up in small rural communities in south India. At Tabla we use fresh, farm grown spices by own family in India. Praveen has gained great wealth of Food and Restaurant management skills from The Gleneagles Hotel & Turnburry Hotel, where we workedover 6 years. Tabla is well presented restaurant with stone walls and open kitchen. You'll find cheerful and well attentive staff to exceed your dining expectations.
