I ate with a friend here in June 2014. Perched near the top of the small hill at 134 Glebe Point Road, near St Johns Road it's easy to find, but parking can be difficult. Decor is nice, as the interior, once a terrace house has beautiful exposed sandstock bricks - the ones made by convicts. As parking can be... More

I love Indian food, and always want to visit an Indian restaurant anywhere i go in the world. This one is by far the best one i've had in Australia yet. Located in Glebe, DarBar provided great service and great food in a lovely environment. The restaurant itself inside is really nice and pretyy big. We went on a Thursday... More

Worst experience ever. Whereas the food - when it arrived - wasn't too bad it was the worst service ever. Myself and friend arrived just before 8pm on a Tuesday night. The place was less than half full and to begin with they wanted to sit us on a corner table where both of us would be facing a wall.... More

We, a party of four, decided to go to Darbar for a meal a few days ago. The first problem came when we telephoned the restaurant to ascertain whether it was BYO for both beer and wine; I asked the waitress four times whether they accepted BYO beer and wine and she said, "Yes," each time. When we arrived with... More

We have enjoyed the hospitality and food at Dabar on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. The wait staff are all very friendly and there is a wide selection of dishes to suit all pallets. The venue is unique and enhanced by the decor and layout. BYO wine allowed. Highly recommended.

Indian is my favourite.....and this restuarant is one of the best! Lovely cheeky staff and the food is simply amazing and different. Not cheap but certainly worth a visit. Wines are also delicous and good value.

We had an early dinner here on a weeknight. When we ordered there were only 2 other tables taken in the restaurant so we figured our meal would be fairly quick, however, our entree took so long that our 2yr old started trying to eat her arm- we waited an hour for our entree to be served! Our main followed... More

This restaurant is located in a cellar in Glebe street. This immediately creates a mystical atmosphere. There is a huge range of meals and they all taste great, at least the four we ordered were high quality. This is a restaurant worth taking a cab too! Enjoy!

My partner and I went there with our 8 month old on a Friday after work. The staff were extremely accommodating, polite and attentive and found us a quiet table in the corner. I had never been here before and we used a voucher that gave us the banquet, we weren't expecting anything as special as what we received. The... More
