We picked up a take away after looking for a new Indian restaurant to try in Perth and Tabla was recommended. We certainly weren't disappointed, good food and very friendly manager/owner chatted away whilst we waited for our order. Tabla will be our Indian of choice in Perth from now on.

This isn't your usual all you can eat buffet, there is a wide choice of tasty dishes to choose from, each time iv been I have tried something different and have not been disappointed. The portions are good and the restaurant is clean and fresh. It's a little pricey but worth it.
