We had a wonderful meal here a few years ago, so we were disappointed to see that it has closed. The Willamette Week interviewed the owner for a November 18 article, and he seemed upbeat about the 14-year run.

We were lucky to be there for their anniversary special which was like 50% off. The service was great. The food was delicious. I was put off a little by the 'ambiance' when we first arrived, but adjusted quickly. The kitchen is in sight of the tables. Concrete floor? All was good though. I will definitely go back.

It's easy to let slip some of the most memorable meals in this great chefville. There's so much hype about all the upcoming stars, so much heavy competition on almost every corner even in what used to be just "the neighborhood". A lot of the buzz is well deserved, some not, but for anyone who's somewhat new to PDX there... More

Booked the banquet room for 9. Drinks came at different intervals. One came 10 mins. After the rest. I guess forget the toast right. They took a drink order at 9:30 and expected us to vacate at 9:50. With so many great restaurants in Portland with welcoming ambience why bother with tabla. It's a waste of time and money.

It was a nice place. SImply decorated like a comfortable bistro/cafe. We presented our wait person with "the card " listing all the things my wife has... More

Did the fixed price menu. Plenty of food! Pasta was fresh and amazing. Main courses of duck and fish were perfection. Nice atmosphere. Lively but not too loud - had a great conversation with friends.
