Located in interesting sandstone building on Glebe Point Road. This was one of my favorite Indian restaurants when visiting Sydney until last visit. Made some effort to get there and disappointed. Waiter indifferent. Dosa uninspired. Weird Indian-Chinese cauliflower (not identified as such on menu). Waiter said it was traditional Northern Indian; when pressed he said Delhi. Unimpressed.

This was our friends' favourite restaurant and they invited us along. We turned up on time and even though we had booked in advance they couldn't find it. We got a seat, ordered sparkling water which they promptly forgot about. Our teenage Indian waitress either had a hearing or language problem. You can imagine the rest of the night. They... More

We called into this restaurant on Glebe Point Road for a late supper following a Penfolds Wines Masterclass. The time was around 9.15 pm. We were greeted cheerfully, and the service was excellent. We only wanted a quick, light meal and as a party of four, we ordered two mains and some naan bread plus a bottle of Radio Boka... More

Such a provocative menu that celebrates classics of Indian with a few innovations reflecting the nearby italian quarter and Glebe's local pallette. I was intrigued with the entrees, I'd originally had pre-conceived ideas and was leaning toward a Samosa, Paneer or Tikka, but upon review I noticed some very fusion-like items which I just had to sample. THE STUFFED ZUCCHINI... More

The food is very good, and the service is not too bad, although every time we've been there it hasn't been very busy so you feel obliged to talk to the owner. The setting is dungeon like but not awful. The best thing about this restaurant is that the food is very authentic indian and delicious.

Originally popping out for a quick bite to eat we decided on a whim to try this place. It turned out to be as wonderful night with lovely food and very good service in a beautiful restaurant. I can't wait to return.

Assessed on food alone, Darbar Fine Indian Cuisine produced one of the five best Indian restaurant meals I’ve eaten in Sydney.  The food is spot on, even if negotiating variable portion sizes can require a bit of staff assistance. Seeing the size of our Jal Pari Hariyali ($17) caused the next table to remove it from their order. It’s a... More

Staying in Glebe

Neighborhood Profile
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.
