“Delicious lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

We sat outside and enjoyed our lunch. Chicken kabobs were excellent. All four us would return. Just a couple of doors down from the Andaz hotel.

“Healthy choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Tarla offers healthy options. The chicken and veggies was delicious. The owner made us feel so welcome and even waived the corkage fee!

“Good appetizers but not so good entrees.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I ate here tonight and were very dissapointed. Our waiter was very nice and the service was great. Our appetizer was very good. Our entrees were another story. I got the short rib rissotto and it was the worst peice of meat I have ever had. It was not edible. Our waiter never asked how our food was or I would have told him that I couldn't eat it. My husband's chicken was at least edible.

“Best salmon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Tonight four of us met at Tarla at 6:15. Tarla does not accept reservations for groups of six or fewer, but we were immediately ushered to a seat. Great food, very good service. I called ahead to find out what wine corkage charges would be; turned out to be $10 a bottle, donated to a charity. Great beginning. I had one of the specials--salmon--as good as I have ever tasted, served on a bed of lentils cooked to perfection. The men in the group had a seafood dish with shrimp and scallops which seemed a bit skimpy, but they said tasted great and which looked scrumptious.

We did not order salads or appetitizers, which might be wise for larger appetites. I am sure they would be yummy, too.
