Tabla Indian Cuisine Winter Park

At Tabla, you will be delighted in the visual creations that entice the eyes and enliven the palate. 

Tabla Indian Cuisine is where your senses come alive with the aroma of fresh Indian curries, Indo-Chinese delicacies and Thai spices in the air.

The vision here is to reflect the flavors of Tabla Cuisine, with ambiance, service, and modern presentation. Tabla’s Cuisine offers a symphony of Indian, Indo-Chinese, vegetarian, vegan, and Thai flavors and spices that is designed to excite both the neophyte and the connoisseur alike.

The new Winter Park Location was previously occupied by Paris Bistro, and the folks at Tabla did an amazing redo of the interior with white stone work, mirrors, wine racks and new dining tables and chairs. In fact, it is so nice inside, one would think you are at a fancy high end restaurant, but it is a perfect redo for the Winter Park Crowd.

A Tabla is a pair of small drums that have been fundamental to Hindustani music of northern India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh since the 18th century. Much like the musical sounds and instruments used in traditional Indian music, the foods found in those regions have become fundamental in shaping cuisine all over the world.

The menu features a great mix of Indian, Chinese and Thai flavors and spices with classic dishes and new twists on old favorites. That's what makes tabla so unique.

You can find Thai green curry and basil fried rice for a taste of Thailand, or fresh from the tandoor kebabs, chicken tikka, and garlic naan for a taste of India and classics like general tso’s chicken with a side of crab rangoon for your Chinese food cravings.

For something really tasty, the Indo-Chinese fusion dishes like the cauliflower Manchurian and lemon coriander soup are pretty exciting as well, as are the artistic versions of classics like mango tiramisu and gulab jamun brulee.

Tabla’s chef, Sajan Premajan is a culinary artist known for his original and inventive food presentations, which he attributes to his traditional training and inspiration from his Asian heritage. Tabla Cuisine is now in two great locations, Tabla Indian Restaurant in Orlando and Tabla Indian Restaurant in Winter Park.

Inside of the all new Tabla Winter Park.

A sparkling Rose and a Woodpecker beer from India. Both do a great job of cooling your mouth down and enhancing the flavors of Indo-Chinese foods.

Gobi Manchurian, is a good twist on Indo-Chinese food. Gobi Adraki is traditional Indian cuisine, but tossing the crispy fried cauliflower in Tabla’s signature Manchurian sauce makes this a perfect crossover dish. It is one of my all time favorite appetizers.

Garlic Naan...Garlic Naan... is anything better than this wholesome and delicious warm and crusty Garlic Naan from Tabla?

The delicious sauces served with your pappadum are actually a Chutney. The green one, called hari chutney in Hindi, is generally made with a mixture of coriander, mint, sugar, salt, turmeric and a pinch of lime juice and of course curry powder. The red chutney, called imli chutney in Hindi, is very often made with the juice of tamarind (imli in Hindi). Tamarind is soaked in water, strained and mixed with sugar, rock salt, toasted and ground cumin, dry powdered ginger, and powdered pepper. Pappadum is a thin crisp round or rolled Indian flatbread that is fried.

Butter Chicken, a North Indian Delicacy is made in a rich buttery Tomato Cream Sauce with chunks of chicken and served with a side of Basmati rice. This is a tasty and fragrant dish that is absolutely mouthwatering at Tabla.

Although I asked what is better than Garlic Naan previously, I can tell you Red Pepper Spicy Naan is either 1 B, or a very close second. Chef Premajan did not hold back on us and gave us super hot and spicy naan that was excellent, and full of flavor.

Certainly everything Chef Premajan serves up at Tabla is excellent, but we were blown away by the Palak Gosht with Bone-in Goat cooked in braised Spinach and Garlic with a Tomato-Onion Masala. Simply some of the most delicious, tender and flavorful goat I have ever had, and the masala mixture was phenomenal.

When ordering food at Tabla, most dishes can made according to your heat levels, aside of items like Chicken Vindaloo, which the can not be altered, so if you love some good Indian Heat, a nice ending of Chocolate Samosa with Masala Chai Latte Ice Cream and chocolate drizzle is not only a great ending, but a great way to cool your mouth off.


Tabla Winter Park is open Monday to Thursday from 11:30 AM to 9:00 PM, Friday & Saturday from 11:30 AM – 10:00 PM and Sunday: 11:30 AM – 9:00 PM

Both locations serve up excellent Indo-Chinese fare, and the food is really impressive, but the new Winter Park location has definitely stepped up the game with a beautiful remodel and elegant atmosphere.
