Description: Darbar Indian restaurant has a prime location in midtown Manhattan, right in the heart of New York City, and is a superb choice for authentic Indian food and ambiance. Besides the traditional korma and tandoori preparations, the kitchen experiments with trans-ethnic fusion dishes like Maine crab cakes, and potato croquettes stuffed with goat cheese. Make sure to take advantage of the lunch buffet special, with seafood, lamb or goat, chicken, vegetables, salads and much more.

“Decent Indian cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

There are a lot of Indian restaurants in Manhattan and this, I would say, is one of the better ones. The appetizers were very good, especially the cauliflower dish and the onion fritters. My tandori lamb chops were delicious, but there were only 3 small ones. Would have liked one more to the order. I thought the onion kulcha bread should have had more onions but it was good. My Mango Martini was great and would definitely recommend it. All in all a decent meal.

“Good Food, Small Drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

The Chicken Tikka Masala was very good, the salad was fresh, the service was good, but, it took them a while to get the drinks to the table. Then when they arrived they were tiny. They should have been giving mixed drinks in glasses that were a tad larger---the ones they were serving in were a step above traditional shot glasses.

“Good Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Very good indian food at reasonable prices for NYC. They make good tandoori food. Good chicken and goat/lamb dishes. Breads are fresh and delicious. Efficient wait staff.
There is another Darbar 2 on east 55th street. Not sure if the management is the same.. I have eaten at both and prefer the location on east 46th street.
