Nice hospitality shown by staff, good taste for the Indian food but a little pricey as compared to the quality and ambiance.

Only good thing about this place is food. Otherwise service is really really poor and attitude of staff is pathetic. They hardly have any degree of courteousness and their supervisor is so arrogant that it doesn't even align with hospitable culture which restaurants are expected to deliver upon. The staff made a mistake and they didn't even admit it. They... More

Have been there many of times.Quality of food is very good except the price.Price is very high compare to other restaurants in the same grade. Ambiance is very good for family as well as for singles. Need to improve in their customer service but it doesn mean they are bad. Overall good.

There are many Indian restaurants in Riyadh but Darbar..@ Olaya is the one among very few Indian resto that serves authentic Indian food, ...Must try Kababs, Butter chicken, Talumein soup , Murg Musallam. Staff is very friendly and prices are economical. Highly recommended for the ppl who are looking for real Indian taste..

For the price they charge, we expected the quality of food to be equally good but it's so-so. Plus, the seating environment isn't the most comfortable. Safe to say it's congested and dim lighting. Menu has wayyyyyy too many items. You dont know what to choose and if two dishes will really be different from each other! Better to go... More

Had been there quite a few times. Reasonably good food but the service is slow and poor. Not flexible on anything, they will not budge an inch to accommodate you in any way. If you are vegetarian stuck in Riyadh, this place can help you survive.
