We're Indian aficionados and Tabla is the most authentic to the food of India that we've found in Scotland. Ideally, we'd like more veggie stuff - 24 hour slow cooked lentils would be perfect - but anything Tandoori is great!

This is our 3rd time eating at the Tabla and once again it was excellent. It was very busy but we had booked a table and got seated very quickly. The staff are very attentive and helpful. We placed our order and we got a complimentary starter to taste - haggis pakora - lovely, worth trying. Everything tastes so fresh.... More

My wife and I had never been here before but we're made very welcome and despite the restaurant being very busy were shown to a table straight away. There was a wonderful choice of food and the service e and quality of the food was incredible. If I did not live 120 miles away I would be a regular user.

This little restaurant is very centrally situated in Perth, fine and handy for both bus and railway stations. The menus displayed in the window looked imaginative and inviting so I decided this would be a good venue for lunch with a friend who was arriving from Glasgow.
