They fitted me in during a busy evening and even though it's not an Indian that serves very hot food they did accommodate my request to spice my meal up to a hotter standard. Good attentive staff and great food

After a week in Scotland eating traditional food we were keen to have something with some spice - Tabla was a fantastic choice and the food was amazing. If I ever come back to Perth I would definitely come again

I was fortunate to eat here again on Tuesday night. I have been eating here whilst up on business since Praveen and Swarma took over and it is always a privilege to visit. I started with poppadoms and the pickle tray and asked for the mint sauce too. Then for main o had the Andra Khodi Curry with a plain... More
