A really valid menu, rich choice of options; we had dinner at the first floor and had a longish waiting in the stairs. I would recommend tables at ground floor: although packed the scene is much lively.

Came across this gem accidentally and thoroughly enjoyed it. Split two appetizers and each got our own curry dish with lots to take home for lunch the next day. Everything was delicious- will definitely come back next time I am in Montreal!

Resto Darbar is a small restaurant with great food from the North of India. The chef even came to see us if we liked it. It’s a typical Indian restaurant. Great taste. The service was “ok”. Enjoy.

This boutique style Indian restaurant is located in the Mount Pleasant area. Food is tasty and has fusion twist. Not sure if they have buffet. I tried thali and it was reasonably priced. Service is excellent.

Only meters from our hotel, we were really happy with the quality, serving size and price provided at this unassuming eatery. Very friendly staff ensured our order was cooked on the mild side as requested. A great change from seafood and fries!

Found Darbar when looking for an Indian restaurant other than Atma and Le Taj (love them both). Darbar is a smaller restaurant with terrace on St Laurent. Arrived at 6pm and seated right away—business was steady but never overwhelming. Comfortable, intimate interior is relaxed and...More
