What a beautiful experience, food, surroundings and service. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the lovely manager gave us beautiful bottle of Indian wine to take home! Food was stunning..best Indian meal we have had. We live 30 miles away but would make the trip again to eat here ...well worth it!

Four of us visited Tabla and ordered very different starters and mains. We all had a little taste of each other's dishes and were all pleasantly surprised. The service was polite and warm and the restaurant has a cosy, homely sort of feel about it, so you feel comfortable there. I enjoyed my evening in Tabla.

Visited here on a busy Thursday evening (I suspect this is always the case so book ahead) Still felt intimate for couples dining. Food was superb. Waitress kindly allowed me to chose two half portions of curry as I couldn't decide which to have! All staff smiling and helpful. Great meal and evening.

Tabla offers friendly and responsive service, speedy but tasty food, and all at reasonable prices. You really get the feeling that you stepped into India at Tabla. The floor was a little sticky though, would be nice if it was cleaned next time.
