We really enjoyed our meal here - we ate very late as we'd only just arrived in the city but the food tasted as fresh as it would have at the start of the evening. Popular with locals too.

It states fine dining and they hand you the plates to put them in front of you. The sodas are flat and with no ice.

Great food and good service. Reasonably priced for New York. Lots of options for chicken, seafood, lamb and beef.

I really liked how we were treated by the waiter/manager. We sat on the bar counter and they made sure we're comfortable. They served us food on the counter itself. They were also serving Old Monk which you don't usually get in the US. The...More

Stayed in a nearby hotel and checked Trip Advisor for a place nearby that met our criteria-walking distance, good reviews, and won't break the bank- and check, check, check! Great food at reasonable prices (always a challenge in Manhattan). We had two chicken dishes, one...More

I am not exaggerating when I say that Darbar has wrecked most Indian restaurants for me. Everything, from the Peshawari naan to the kebab appetizer, was a notch above. Their house cocktail, a play on a mango lassi with rum and pineapple, goes down far...More

We were casting about for someplace near Grand Central, and found Darbar. We had the buffet thing, and everything was quite good, notably the fish curry and the chicken tandoori, and something I've forgotten the name of that involved something very like sweet potatoes. We...More

There is a lot of variety on the buffet and several kinds of bread. Neither my memory nor my knowledge of Indian food serves to be more specific.

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.
