Our dining room dining room falls somewhere between red-velvet regal and Slum Dog casual, with white table linens, fresh roses and vinyl-coated menus. There's gentle, tinkling music, authentic if slightly wooze-inducing incense and, for better weather, a petite patio. Our menu is centered mostly on the northern half of the country but includes fiery Goan specialties and henna-red vindaloo. Our knowledgeable, welcoming and sincere staff makes ordering easy for novices. Meals begin with a complimentary stack of crisp pappadom with thimbles of thick-cut onion chutney and a green-as-fresh-cut-grass coriander version for dipping. A side order of mixed chutneys yields store-bought but no less delicious sour mango pickle and sweet mango chutney. Come visit our lovely, value-priced dreamy addition to Coconut Grove!

Miami is not known for its Indian food which I've sorely missed since moving here. I've visited curry houses across the world and I was very impressed here. The old location was small and difficult to get a table so I'm somewhat glad it moved although the atmosphere is different now. We made a reservation for 8:15 not realizing the... More

Best Indiant Food in Miami. New location. Lots of tables. Finally able to get in without a reservation. Butter chicken is to die for.

Eagerly awaited my first visit to this restaurant and I wasn't disappointed. Was there for lunch today and from the moment we entered to the moment we left were perfectly taken care of. Service was exceptional and waiter also gave us ideas from how best to use the spices to how to use our leftovers to best advantage. Ordered samosas... More

My husband and I are long time customers of this wonderful restaurant. We have had dinner here at least once a month for the last two years. Recently, it moved from a tiny, cramped location in the Grove to the significantly larger former home of TK's. So, although I have reviewed the restaurant before, I wanted to write about the...

Have not been to their new location yet. I always make res when I go because it's always packed. Food is great. What I like best that when you are bringing friends who you are trying to introduce to Indian cuisine and you ask them not to make the food spicey, they do not contrary to other Indian restaurants.

We've been going to Bombay Darbar for years, and just recently went to their new location in Coconut Grove. The new space is much bigger and can handle more customers than the previous location. As usual, this place is always packed! Our faves include the garlic naan, butter chicken (so divine I keep thinking about it) and the lamb roganjosh.... More

Bombay Darbar has moved recently for a new place, still in the Cocowalk area (Coconut grove), for a twice if not three times more space (hence tables). Unfortunately, this has not bring any good. The wait time is not better, actually in our case it has been worse. We have showed up around 8pm - we didn't have a reservation... More

Great Lamb Roganjosh & Chicken Tikka Masala were out of this world. Their garlic naan was out of this world and the basmati rice is addictive. Service was equally great. Moreover, the prices are great for Miami - which is otherwise quite an expensive town.
