Our History

Praveen’s rural roots as the son of a farmer, have come home to roost.

Growing celebrity Chef, Praveen Kumar and his wife Swarna would like to welcome you to an authentic Indian cuisine experience using the ‘best of British’ fresh food combined with ‘Praveen & Swarna’s family grown’ Indian spices, creating stunning flavours and award-winning meals.

Both were born and brought up in rural villages in Southern India where meals are cooked daily, using fresh ingredients grown in local fields. They married and moved to Scotland where combining their passion for good and simple food, they founded the bustling Indian restaurant ‘Tabla’ in Perth city centre, since 2009.

On the back of the success and growing reputation of quality and service provided at Tabla, Chef Praveen, opened the award winning, Indian Cook School (2016). As the business needs grew they decided to grow their own produce and now work with market gardener John from Coupar Angus, Perthshire, to grow “beyond organic” vegetables and herbs.
