It Rocked! Take great food, awesome service, amazing hospitality and throw it all into a blender and that's what we got at Tabla on our last visit. We'll definitely be back soon!

There are few restaurants that are as sensual and creative as Tabla while still providing a high level of excellence. THe food is always right on, service is sincere and well informed and the place is beautiful. What more could you want from a new York culinary experience! Don't miss this one.

Very good

The food was good. As an appetizer I had the crab cake with an indian version of guacamole inside of a light baked shell. It had a nice blend of spices that created a taste that I had not experienced before. the desserts are amazing as well. this is definetly a very pricy place with most appetizers going for about $7-$16, entrees $24-$34 and desserts for $9. A place to celebrate a special occasion or to impress someone with you expensive taste.

Fusion Does Not Always Work.

  • No, I would not go back!

I have the utmost respect for Danny Meyers and the way consistency you find in his places, but the food here just strikes out. It is not good Indian, not a succesful attempt to mix.

Thank God For Restaurant Week

All I can say is thank God for restaurant week. That is the reason I got to go to Tabla restaurant where I experienced the best in terms of everything - food, service and decor. Not only was my mouth squealing with delight with the myriad of tastes, but the staff was absolutely accommodating and pleasant. Could I afford it at another time? Perhaps not, but would definitely go back for a special occasion.

Indian Mahal in Manhattan

Tabla's decor is omnious and the dishes all spread a rich fragrance across the room. This scene sits perfect for a date. The simple traditional dishes like dal are not as on key as the more experimental goan platters.
