Tabla Bread Bar Recs

I haven't been in a while. I know most on this board don't find it authentic. It isn't but it's a damn good place for food and very good cocktails. Anyway, what's good there lately? Thanks in advance for your help.

  1. I would go with the chicken tikka, great flavor although the helpings aren't that large. The pulled lamb & mashed potato naanini is a winner for many - the company I was with loved it, I wasn't blown away, but a good try. Sadly, many of the naans we tried were surprisingly tough and very disappointing. For dessert, you can't go wrong with the doughnut holes that come with 3 different dipping sauces; caramel, vanilla and chocolate I believe.

    1. the lamb nanini sandwich with a "Censored" aka "The Chronic" beer (Lagunitas Brewing Company) is the way to go.

      1. As far as cocktails, the Kachumber Kooler is great - cucumber, cilantro and a hint of hot pepper. I prefer it with vodka rather than gin.

        1. re: ssf36

          Was just about to post a rec for the same cocktail - delicious.

        2. I had a really, really mediocre lunch there about a year ago. Can't even remembered what I ordered, but I vowed I wouldn't go back. I like the main restaurant, however.

          1. the chicken tikka is excellent, the cheddar naan is very tasty, they ahve a goan avocado salad which is very nice- also try a selection of the chutneys- the menu varies but overall I ahve always been very happy with the food there
