I lived in India for five years so I have high standards for Indian food and Darbaar meets those with distinction. The butter chicken was delicious and the naan was freshly baked and moist.

Set in London's trendy Shoreditch, Darbaar Restaurant is a stunning contemporary space serving a menu inspired by the banquets of the Indian Royal Court. In addition to the chic bar, there is a unique interactive grill seating area, and a bespoke chef's table.

All kinds of colourful, eclectic dishes are prepared with flair on the Darbaar Restaurant menu, starting off with fresh seafood flavours like king scallops with wild mushroom achar and cauliflower purée. There are dishes that featured in Masterchef 2016, such as Mewari oven-baked leg of rabbit with chilli and corn sauce, while the selection of curries boast delicate blends of spices and rich creams.

Exciting Indian afternoon teas are hugely popular at Darbaar Restaurant in Shoreditch, and combine exotic teas with savoury treats and sweets like Valrhona dark chocolate and chilli cake, and date samosas. From the bar, there is a huge wine selection, and unique signature cocktails.

An intimate, contemporary slice of modern Indian dining, Darbaar Restaurant is only a 3-minute walk from Liverpool Street Rail Station.

    The food was pretty good, but the service felt a bit up and down. They didn't have the armagnac available (listed on the menu) when a friend ordered it, and I would have expected to have been offered an alternative with some sort of apology and discount given how fancy the restaurant is. They also didn't take American Express which seemed a bit odd - again with not much of an apology. The sugar wasn't caramelised on the creme brulee and crunching through sugar wasn't a great experience, but other than that - it was we had a good evening and the atmosphere and interior design of the restaurant were nice.

    A terrible customer service miss for us -- with no explanation.

    As always, a great dining experience at Darbaar. Every delectable morsel of food was a joy...particularly the lamb and roast potato. Absolutely delicious! The cocktails were tasty and, unlike those you find elsewhere, not sickly sweet at all. The Rainforest was particularly lovely and refreshing. The chocolate fondant was just what you want to finish off a luxurious dinner...soft, silky, warm and rich with a gorgeous gooey centre, oozing with chocolate! The accompanying kulfi was just the right touch...brought the dish together beautifully. The staff could not have been more accommodating - we were having the New Years Eve set menu and when I mentioned that I didn't like fish, they substituted all the fish dishes for yummy alternatives...without me even having to ask! Every member of their team was knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and approachable. You know it's a real team effort when you go to collect your coat from the desk at the end of the night, and the chef and owner is the one to hand it over to you! Last but not least...the bathrooms! Always clean...and the most amazing toilets! Must be seen (and used) to be believed! Thank you Darbaar for a great New Years Eve!

    The food was great. The table service was too frequent. It was kind of disturbing.

    The food as usual was excellent. However service fell below standard. Unusually,staff felt the need to blame management for their sloppiness. Very disappointing staff attitude.

    The food was fantastic.
    Really really good.
    People don't know what they are missing out on.
    But.....
    My beer wasn't poured for me, no one topped our wine glasses regularly and had to do this myself.
    Too much emphasis on set meals and limited choice on a la carte section.
