The wonderfully aromatic spices foreshadow amazingly flavor food. We were pleasantly surprised by the well-balanced cocktails served up from the front bar. We stopped in before heading to the Fox for a show and recommend anyone who likes flavorful food to do the same.

Unfortunately this place was a disappointment. Many pieces of my chicken dish were hard and rubbery, surprising for an Indian restaurant. The food flavors were not on point, too mild and sauces were on the runny side. Basically, the food did not taste freshly prepared - plus Indian food should NOT have barely-noticeable or subtle flavors. I was expecting more from this more modern and hip place. I love Indian food and I've tried it from coast-to-coast. In Atlanta, I would have to say that Cafe Bombay is the best go-to option I've tried, they are very busy so the food is fresh and the chicken is always moist and very flavorful.

The appetizer, a duck samosa was very nice but pricey.
The main course were disappointing. Although both had good spice, the spice was very one dimensional-- hot, but uninteresting.

The service was lacking. All of the tables surrounding us arrived after and left prior to us even receiving all of our food. We were celebrating a friend's birthday which was only not acknowledged but she was made to watch us eat due to the delay caused by the restaurant. We did not ask for any special dishes, we ordered exactly what was on the menu. Why not bring all of the food out at once? I'm not sure why 2 of 3 dishes were brought to the table and NO follow up on the missing dish until I asked twice. Why not provide the same level of service to all of the tables? The server or manager could have at least acknowledged the birthday after providing poor service and poor experience.

Went for dinner on a weeknight and was surprised by the crowd, but still, service was excellent and noise wasn't too bad. We asked our server to recommend dishes for us, and his suggestions were perfect-- everything was so delicious! The food came out quickly, too. This was our second time at Tabla, and we will be back!

We had the crispy okra and tandoori octopus appetizers. Both were creative and very good. For our entrees, we had chicken briyani (a MUST), tiki kassala and butter naan. It was all excellent. Prices were moderate and appropriate for the quality.

Where to begin. I’ve been to Tabla at least 10 times, and I’m always recommending it. The service every time is impeccable. The last time there were two MVPs. The manager, and Nerav our server.

Nerav was excellent in his attentiveness. The manager, although he gave me a sour wine, helped us when we had trouble with the parking validation. The wine is my own fault because I didn’t speak up. I prefer not to unless it’s something inedible.

The food is always on point, and the flavors are untouchable. I don’t typically like repeating restaurants in Atlanta because there are many to try. But this is always worth repeating.

The service is excellent. Our server was very polite and knowledgeable about the menu items and how they were prepared. The food is superb. For a starter we ordered the spinach chaat, which quite literally melted in our mouths. The coriander lamb chops were very tender and flavorful. The shrimp biryani is cooked in a naan and is delicious. We will definitely dine here again.

Food was terrible and spice levels were all over the spectrum. The kitchen could not keep levels consistent from everything our table ordered. Once level 5 was like a 10 while another was like a 1. The server had no idea about gluten free suggestions and even though one person couldn’t even eat the food after it was “made” the 2nd time (and clearly just had been reheated and watered down) they didn’t take it off our receipt. I was going to make this my birthday restaurant but won’t ever be coming here again.

Wow! What a fabulous meal. The cauliflower appetizer is exceptional. Half off bottles of wine on a Sunday is a deal- we had the old vine Zinfandel. The garlic naan and curry halibut was perfect. Lively and packed at 9pm on a Sunday; great vibe and great meal.
