Excellent service, great atmosphere, very good food at a reasonable price. The staff were attentive to our needs and were always available. The delivery of food was hot, as expected and we didn't have to wait too long either. Thanks to the staff at Tabla. I have rated the noise level as loud as there is a DJ there so that's what I expected.

Great Food and music, enjoyed atmosphere and service provided by the waiters. Would have enjoyed even more if they could continue the music and dancing until 2am.

It was my first time at Tabla. Food was excellent. Service was also not bad. Our starters and mains arrived together which I found very strange. Otherwise all good.

It was alright but there weren't that many people so it was really quiet. The food was below average, there was a lot of salt in some of the dishes
