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".

I visited Tabla for the second time and left just as happy as I was the first time. Being from South Shields quality curry is something I'm accustomed to but Tabla still impressed. The menu is varied with plenty of delicious sounding dishes to choose from. I can highly recommend the Railway Boti, Tabla Gambas and my new favorite, Lamb... More

Whenever me n the Missus go somewhere different, we first check here. Tabla had great reviews and we do love a good Indian. We didn't book, but arrived quite early - before 7pm - so they were good enough to accomodate us. Others who came later - while we were tucking into our main course - weren't so lucky and... More

We got a takeaway from Tabla yesterday and it was excellent. Despite us living a fair distance from the restaurant the food was still piping hot when we got home. I particularly enjoyed the Murgh Moonlight which is probably the nicest curry I have had with a great flavour. My children don't eat curry but had chips and naan breads... More

We had the Tapas menu, Comes with rice naan and poppadoms then choose any six dishes from a list including some south Indian street food. Superb flavours, does not look a lot at first but is very filling.

So pleased we dropped in on this superb restaurant. Little did we know it is already rated as number 1 in Perth. Everything about the experience was superb. Of course the owners experience working at Gleneagles shows in the customer service. Well done, keep it up! We will return.

My wife and tried this restaurant yesterday and were really impressed. It us evident that the chef takes real pride in what leaves the kitchen and he /she has every right to be proud.
