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!

You will have to make a reservation because its always packed. Make sure to order the butter chicken, just delicious. The staff is very friendly and polite.

“Nice food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Lunch at the Bombay Darbar was a nice affair. By far, this is the best Indian food we have eaten in the US. Nicely curried food, with the option to have the meal served in varying degrees of spiciness. Staff were very friendly.
We ate on the small, but cosy front patio. I would imagine this would help give a great atmosphere on a busy night and during the day it allows enough space for a not too serious business lunch.
Could be nice if the staff uniforms did not look so shabby.
Very resonably priced and portions of food.

“Best in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

It is really authentic. In Miami it is hard to find quality Indian food. I have been at Bombay Darbar like 5 times and it has always been consistent.

“Outstanding indian food in US”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

I am touristing in Miami during spring holidays, and this is by far among the best indian restaurants I have been to around the world. The appetisers, including Nan, chicken wings, and indian empanadas were a real treat. Also the classic curry dishes, tandoori, and rice plates were very good. I am a tough grader and this is among the best. The long wait even with reservations was worth it. Will I go back? of course.

“Some of the best Indian food around by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Great food. Love the chicken tikka masala. Can't get enough of this place. Always packed :)
The portions are sizable and always tasty. We've been at least a dozen times.
