Description: 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!

Indian cuisine done so perfect you'll crave it again in a few days. I've had Indian food quite a bit when I travel but haven't found a better place than Bombay DarBar. Make reservations and get ready to have your taste buds rocked. Try: butter chicken, garlic nam, chana masala

Small restaurant with outdoors seating in the heart of Coconut Grove, Florida. Reservations are highly recommended. The food is very good. I've been to many indian restaurants throughout the world and this one is up there. We started with "Paneer Pakora and Moong dal vada" and they were really good. For main courses we had "Dal Tadka, Saag Gosht, Lamb... More

We have been here 3 times in last 2 years and the food has been great everytime. Malai koftas are delicious and naans are good too. Make sure you make a reservation beforehand as its always occupied.

Good vegetarian food. The staff was very friendly. Value for money as well. They have a trend to serve plain rice with every curry. So order consciously. We had vegetarian biryani, which was large in quantity & deliciously cooked.

A friend recommended this restaurant to us so we tried it out. First of all make sure you make a reservation because there are very few tables and it's a very well known place so be on time! Service is excellent and friendly, food is lovely which all made for a wonderful experience.

We have dinner here once a month, on average. I start craving the Mutter Paneer early in the morning of our visit. Reservations are a good idea because the place gets very crowded and it's small. The service is friendly. The food is sublime.

Bombay Darbar is a hidden gem in Coconut Grove in Miami. The food is amazing!!! Little and cozy place. The problem with small places and good food is that finding a table is difficult. My suggestion is to make a reservation and be patience.....once you arrive you might still wait some time untill your table is available, but the wait... More

We were lucky to find a spot for two without a reservation. We love Indian food and this place serves some great dishes. We chose a medium hot dish, which turned out to be slighty hotter than we expected. However the food was great. The airco wasn't working quite well. Toilet need some attention to.
