Disappointing

The setting is great, it's like being in an old wine cellar. All began well with us being seated at our table but then the staff seemed to disappear for ages. Eventually they took our order. There were 3 of us and 2 of the mains arrived (albeit a bit on the lukewarm side but tasty enough) then it... read more

My husband and I have been to this restaurant a few times and have always had great service and the food has always been fantastic. We had dinner here again tonight and again fantastic food and friendly service. Best Indian in Sydney.

If you are an Indian please don't go to this restaurant, you are so looked down in front of Whites and you are treated differently. Vinay may be you should send your staff to Thousand Spices in homebush and I am sure your staff will learn a lot from them. The manager sounds so rude, may be a few smiles... More

I would say this is one of the top Indian Restaurants I have been to, the service does need a bit of improving though. There were 10 of us and we decided to go for the special unlimited food for $33.90 (please check their website for conditions). This gave us the opportunity to try things on the menu that I've...

I loved the food and service when I visited this restaurant recently. The food was very hot and spicy. But taste was great. I will go back to this restaurant again and I recommend this to anybody who loves spicy and hot Indian food.

We had put off eating here, in part because of all the negative comments about service, but finally decided to go earlier this week. And I have to say that I am mystified by the complaints. The service was friendly and helpful, and the food arrived at our table faster than we expected. No complaints whatsoever. In addition, the food... More

I lived in Glebe for 3 years and nearly every Friday night I would pop in on my way home from work to grab myself at least one of their garlic naans (So good! Actual garlic, not powder used) if not a meal. I visited again last week on a trip to Sydney and it made me realise I hadn't... More

Went to this place on last friday with a friend. Being an Indian I find it difficult to find fine Indian cuisine in Sydney that actually tastes authentic. I've been to many overrated restaurants and disappointed many times because they cook the recipes to please the local customers and they lack the authentic flavour. Darbar is one of the few... More
