The atmosphere is a bit crowdy but the location is at prime place where people can easily find. Idly and vada is the best out of menu for trying out Indian options as a start.

We had ordered Goat Dum Biryani, Chicken Tabla Special Biryani with Garlic Naan and Chicken 65 for the evening. Everybody in our party were so happy and satisfied with the quality of the cooking. Hope - Tabla will continue to serve their delicious goodies for us, the Indian Cuisine, lover here in the Bay Area.

I am been visiting this place for past three years in search of Indian food - it changed a few hands but the present management is good. Their food have improved a lot, attitude is more serious & finally, new items are getting added up in the menu. I so look forward to at least 1-2 visits to this place... More

This restaurant is fairly large so never seems that busy in the evening though I am told lunch times it is packed. Lots of people getting take out in the evening.

This local spot has undergone several iterations and if you read the previous reviews they were correct. However, I recently went to the highly rated Amber India in Mt. View and ordered their Butter Chicken which is pretty expensive and I must say that the Butter Chicken here is as good if not better than Amber India. I cannot comment... More
