Wonderful food in a fabulously comfortable restaurant. Darbaar looked after me and my lactose problem so faultlessly that I could completely relax and just enjoy the experience.

    Service and food, spectacular

  • (((** 18 April 2017 by Roger James from London

    Table of 5 - great front of house and food. Menu has been simplified since my previous visit and food remains as good as it was (Chicken and Prawn curries were great!)

    Service still lets Darbaar down. Ordered breads to accompany the grilled meat starters arrived after we had finished the meat and only after multiple queries of where they were. My guests first drink took 20 minutes and 3 reminders to arrive. Some of the waiters are still difficult to understand as their English is not good. For the prices being charged the service is not in line and lets the place down.

    If Darbaar could sort out the staff / service they really could have a full restaurant every night.

    Food was superb but service very slow, had to remind three times for Beer & Water . Then received water in a jug rather than a bottle we had asked for. Baby Aubergens were not the same as in the past , they were cooked in too much tomatoes masala. The grilled platter and the other meat curries were too good .

    Lovely looking restaurant. Toilets were gr at; very modern and clean.
    Menu was underwhelming to be honest. Several dishes were worded In my opinion. Example: masala chips (which weren't chips at all).
    The servers/waiters were very polite and friendly, however the service was not of fine dining standard. We had to repeatedly ask for glasses to be removed, ask where our drinks were, ask where our pending dishes were.
    Overall the food was tasty. Only con being the Masala Chai was one of the worst I've ever had; such a shame, as you really can't go wrong in making masala chai.... especially for an 'Indian restaurant'.
    Even though the food wasn't tasty I definitely think the over price was too high and not worth the money; more so being it didn't feel like fine dining.

    In food the bengali prawns were horrible. Two prawns in 16 pounds wasnt worth it.
    Also One of the manager (bald one) when he was taking money from my card has made such a stupid face, although when alone my bill was 55 pounds. Trained them please.

    Dessert of chocolate cake was excellent.

    I am in absolute admiration for food & its preparation and I think it is one of the best restaurants in terms of that. The food was really delicious. However, the service levels need to improve. The people taking the order don't understand the Menu well so as to appropriately recommend to its guests. A couple of my colleagues ordered a shared platter and the impression they got from the person taking order that it will be served over two courses which wasn't the case. Popadums are not mentioned on the Menu and when you look at the bill, to have charged 4 pounds for that sounds way too expensive to some. The third course of desserts took ages to come. Please take care of these issues and I hope the next time I come to Darbaar I have a better experience in terms of the service.

    Amazing. We had some work to do after I came back from an important business meeting and the restaurant was empty but the waiter Sachin was really helpful and told me not to rush and just relax even if the restaurant was empty and felt like we needed to rush out. I will definitely come back here, of course the food was fantastic. A very classy, clean, modern but traditional restaurant with exceptional staff. 10/10 to the indian staff.
