Description: "Tabla Pitching itself as Perth's only authentic Indian restaurant, Tabla is centrally situated on South Street, only a short meander from the River Tay. Owned and run by Praveen Kumar and his wife Swarna , both born and brought up in small rural communities in India, Tabla Restaurant can certainly boast a fair claim to its self professed title, following the same principles of using fresh, farm grown Indian ingredients for recipes handed down through the generations. Deeply committed to providing a high level of service at this comfortable, well presented restaurant you’ll find cheerful, attentive staff and an organised kitchen. Taking in various regions of the Subcontinent, Tabla’s menu is wide ranging, featuring an array of flavours and cooking styles".

Stumbled across this by accident and it is a real gem. The staff are friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. They really cared about their food which was excellent. I'd go so far as to say one of the best curry s I've had in a very long time and also reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

We had an excellent meal here on Sunday evening. The food was well cooked and very tasty. I found it very reasonable with regards to cost too. I will definitely be visiting here again and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has not yet visited.

Perhaps it was just a bad night to go, but having looked at this restaurant on trip advisor it looked good. But it wasn't as good as I had expected, the staff were very nice. The food was bland nothing tasty or exciting. It was more expensive than it was worth. And worth a note the toilets were not really... More

The Indian "tapas" menu recommended by Praveen was really superb and delicious. We look forward to further sampling! Always a pleasure to dine here with very friendly and welcoming staff and Praveen always has time for a chat with diners. Thank you and see you soon.

Got to say Tabla is good! Nice people and good service. Had lunch on the set menu and was impressed. The only negative was i was sat at the window and this made me feel slightly uncomfortable as was dining on my own. Other than that would return.

I was very happy to experience excellent service and great food here in Perth. Probably will not return to Scotland if they break up the UK but if they do not then we will be back... More
