This is the best restaurant in Atlanta for Indian food. The lamb chops are the best in Atlanta. The Korma, Rogan Josh, and Vindaloo are outstanding and presented beautiful. All the servers are great, but ask for Shoi as she is the best. If you like sitting at the Bar, Big Mike will take great care of you too.
Highly recommended!

We have been twice for dinner and have not been disappointed. Staff is friendly and service is great with suggestions or answering any questions you may have. Great place for a date night, business meeting or anyone looking for some tasty Indian food. I wouldn’t rcommend taking small children due to some areas of dining are rather close in proximity.

Food was too spicy; it would be helpful if they had jalpeno (or equivalent) symbols on the menu to indicate heat.

Heard about this place. Love Indian food. There was a large Indian population in the restaurant as that indicates the food is authentic. Unfortunately, we got sick after eating there. We had the lentils and it did not sit well with either of us. The chicken tandoori was delicious.

Beautiful restaurant and the employees were so nice!! The food was okay. I love to cook so I’m a bit more critical. It certainly wasn’t bad. In terms of value, you’re paying for the experience. The ambiance, the kind-no-matter-what type service, etc.. It was also something different than the norm (steakhouse, Chinese or Thai, Italian...) that we normally get closer to home. There were kids there but no one queued the crying baby (yes I have children...time and place though) so it was overall a great dining experience.

Terrible Indian food! And I did so much research, but apparently not enough...I will admit, I am a bit of a snob when it comes to Indian. I have a high standard, as well as my boyfriend. I have had a ton of indian in my life, including home cooked from my best friend's mom that came from Nothern India, and Tabla curry was some of the worse. It had no flavor! On multiple levels. Not only did I ask for "extremely spicy" and the food came back with no heat (a baby could have eaten it and not flinched), but there was no depth to the dishes. When I think Indian, I think full of spice: turmeric, coriander, garam masala...my dish was like glorified cream and chicken. I got the chicken korma and my boyfriend got the lamb Rogan Josh. It was so bland. And expensive. The garlic naan was ok. Just garlic powder made it "garlic". Where is the minced garlic? And it was crunchy...naan should be pillow-y. Very disappointed and would never go back.

We dine at Tabla regularly and always have a great experience. Food is good, service is great and if I can comment on something that would be the bar, it’s fine when u order dinks at the bar but at the tables it hasn’t been all that great (a few times not always) and this last time the drinks were flat.

SUPERB! We had been to a number of Indian restaurants in the past. It was quite a surprise to learn they had been open for 6+ years. Every item we selected was absolutely "delish"! We will be returning frequently! YUMMY!!!

Beautiful, upscale but comfortable space with a relaxed, upbeat vibe. Wonderful, kind, knowledgeable staff - and the food is tremendous! We ordered a range of small plates to share, and each dish was delectable. Good wine list and full bar. Another plus: free off=street parking.

The staff was very welcoming, warm and energetic. But the most important part was the food. The paneer saag was delicious and the dhal tadakha was succulent, among other orders for sure. I'd definitely keep on going there.

This is not a great restaurant for people who are not familiar with Indian food. The server was respectful but provided very little guidance. Indian food is rich and spicy. Without adequate guidance it can upset your system...

The flavors were good. The portions were small, especially for the entree pricing of $18.00. Cocktails were $12 each, which is to be expected at a restaurant that is attempting to be high end. The $22 charge for a double Basil Hayden bourbon on the rocks is disturbing. Basil Hayden costs $39/750ml bottle when not on sale, so the restaurant pays significantly less, most likely about $33/bottle. A high-end markup of 3x (as opposed to the industry norm of 2.5%) puts the bottle at $100. So a 4oz double should cost no more than $16. I can’t justify going again with such price gouging.

Love coming here for lunch. My go to meal is Lamb Tikka Masala with Garlic naan. The Cauliflower Lassoon (apologies if misspelled) is divine.

The recently completed an indoor makeover. Not quite sure i like how the entrance was redone. But it's not about me, right!? But i do like the expansion to a larger dining area.

Tabla was an Indian restaurant that we wanted to try after going to one in London where Indian food is very popular.
When we arrived many tables all came in at the same time, so our server was overwhelmed for about 5 minutes, but after that everything went smoothly.
We had two appetizers the lamb kebobs, and the fried cauliflower. They were both really good.
For our entrees we read the Lamb Rogen Josh was really good, and lived up to the previous reviews.
We also got The Black Lentil Dal which was great. More creamy than we remember in London,
also the cauliflower and potatoes.
It is a great choice for vegetarians
