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!

“Fantastic Indian!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is a fantastic little hole-in-the-wall in Miami's Coconut Grove.
The cons: small and cramped.
The pros: fantastic food, very fresh and truly delicious. Reasonably priced.
Some of the best Indian I've had in Miami. If you like spicy, order "Indian Spicy" because just spicy is spicy by American standards and it's really not that spicy.

Had the Dhaal Soup and, Crab Samosa it's awesome. Then followed with the Lamb Roganjosh, delicious and flavorful very aromatic. Awesome garlic Naan too!

We loved it and will be back!!!

“Coconut Grove gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

As a resident of Coconut Grove we are lucky enough to have Bombay Darbar as our neighborhood restaurant. Our Saturday evening dinner was as good as previous nights. We are never disappointed in the food or service.

“Amazing food, Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

This is the best Indian food in the Miami area. Each dish is perfectly prepared and the staff is very attentive. I give it 5 stars despite the fact that it is a little too small and sometimes feels like the tables are too close together.

“Great Indian food in a quaint location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Bombay Darbar lives up to its Zagat rating. Food and service were great. Shiah Veg Korma and Garlic Naan were great.

“This is the best Indian Food in South Florida.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

Not only is everything made fresh to order, but the chefs and the waiters are so accommodating. We had three people in our party, one couldn't eat any cilantro and one is strictly gluten-free. The waiter took his time to explain everything to us, and to make recommendations. We had wine, appetizers and entrees and everything was perfect. We will be back. Atmosphere was lovely on a busy Saturday night. Great night in the Grove.
