We love this place! We are fortunate enough to be able to walk to this restaurant and make use of it often! If you like Indian food, this is the place to go! As it's normally very crowded, especially on weekend evenings, we just call in and pick upmost food. Even then we sometimes have to wait over an hour!!!!!... More

First time here on a recommendation. The service was attentive, courteous and efficient. Food was very good given the conservative offerings. Reservations are not held to word though, as upon making reservation I was told to try and get there by 6:30pm to avoid waiting. I went on a Monday evening at 7:30 and had a table immediately. Room was... More

Culinary explosion should I say..! Good food, very busy if you go in weekends especially between 7-9, you have to get your reservation if it's weekends to avoid disappointment..! Great locality..! They had kingfisher beers too, which gave the slice of home and friends for me..! Not a quite place, well it's packed for most of the time, so if... More

The place is very busy & packed. Go early or go late. The staff was great and gave you good suggestions as to which of the dishes you would like. Ask for chicken and he had the right dish asking questions of your taste. The dishes are enough to share and taste each other's. BTW mild is hot, and hot... More

Traveled around the world, tasting different Indian cuisines in other countries visited and have found nothing as good he food i ate at Bombay Darbar in Coconut Grove FL and the food I learned to cook at Ayesha's Kitchen....

I went there with my friend for dinner, the place was packed!! You can choose to sit outside or inside, if you sit inside, be prepared that it is going to be very noisy and you have to speak loudly. Not recommend for new couples looking for a romantic dinner. The food was delicious, I like the curry and dishes... More

I just ate here. I went in alone and was seated at the bar. The place was packed, so a table with no reservation really wasn't an option. Bar seating was fine. Food was good and good quality. I got it medium but found it very spicy. Guess I'm used to DC standards. Atmosphere is nice, dimly lit, with indian... More

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!
