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".

What a cracker of a restaurant this is. Right in the centre of Perth (and Perth was lively on the Friday before Xmas) this is a family run restaurant which imports its spices from the family farm. The food is terrific- great lamb bhuna and bhindi bhaji. Service was friendly and attentive. A gem

It’s a few months since I last visited Tabla and enjoyed their well prepared food. Since then Paraveen has updated his menu and included with his starters, ‘Street Corner Food’ an idea based on the food freshly prepared found on the street corners of Indian roads and sold from push carts. What a good idea. I sampled Dakshin fried fish,... More

I really love to dine at TABLA! They are very attentive and affable and the food is always delicious. I never get quite the same warm and friendly service in any other restaurant. When I go there I fell like I am part of their family.

Seven hungry males enjoyed a feast of real Indian food at Tabla last week for our pre-Xmas meal out. Having been at Tabla last year for the same event, six of them for the first time, they were unanimous that we should return this year and we were not disappointed. The service as always was friendly and efficient and one... More

As a regular customer to this fine restaurant I cannot praise the staff and management highly enough. The food is always stunning and you always get plenty. Whether its sitting in and enjoying a pint of Cobra or having a carryout delivered this place will always blow your mind. Keep up the good work Team Tabla.

The service was good and the selection of food was great. Its good to see a different mix of indian food rather than just the standard issue stuff. dosa followed by fish curry and we got birthday cake, excellent!

I'm always a little sceptical when a restaurant refers to itself as authentic , particularly with Indian restaurants. How authentic can such a cuisine be relocated so far away from its origins, especially as so many are cuisines adapted to the UK tastes? However in the absence of being an expert on the authenticity of Indian cuisine I'll judge Tabla... More

I wish this restaurant was closer to home because it's definitely my favourite Indian. Catering for vegans is not a problem with plenty of choices, and a willingness to adapt dishes to suit. The food we had tasted really fresh and it is clear that extra effort goes into creating this food. Tonight I tried Pani Puri - one of... More
