Review excerpt: Eleven years later, Tabela's laid-back style, funky furnishings and righteous, Middle Eastern-inflected menu feel just as comfortable as ever. Slide behind a well-patinated table or, if you’re with friends, into one of three semi-private booths modeled after European train compartments. Then start with an order of mezze appetizers (five for ¥1,550; three for ¥930). Stay in North Africa mode with couscous — the vegetarian version at Tabela (¥1,400) is so good they serve it at lunch for ¥1,000.
In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
