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

This is one of my favourite Indian restaurant in Sydney. Specially the chicken biryani is delicious. They cover the biryani bowl in an innovative way with a nan bread to keep it warm.

We booked this for a friends gathering. To my relief the food, the staff, and the ambience of the restaurant were perfect. The food being Indian was spicy of course. It was really nice but most curries were quite spicy! We also tried desserts and they were all good. Staff were quite friendly.

In my opinion, this place has the best Indian food in the inner west. I have been there a number of times and always loved the food. Unfortunately, the customer service is quite poor. Do not be surprised if you have a long wait for your meal or they get your order wrong. I would rate this place 5 for... More

We have been going to Darbar on and off for over ten years. The last time we visited ( twelve months ago) we were very disappointed in both the service and the quality of the food. I always think that it is very difficult to find a really bad Indian restaurant and equally it is difficult to find one that... More

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.
