“Best Indian Food in Kingston. Tried other Indian restaurants but nothing compares to Darbar.”
Reviewed March 12, 2011

Excellent food that is very healthy and delicious. Friendly and attentive service. Atmosphere unique. Takeout and delivery is also excellent but not cheap. They always get the order right. I know they make the food fresh at the time food is ordered, so I don't mind the wait. There are Indian restaurants closer to my home but I have tried and prefer Darbar.

“Decent Indian”
Reviewed February 21, 2011

Decent/Average Indian Food. The price is right for what it is. Save some $$ by taking it as takeout.

“best indian restaurant in kingston”
Reviewed February 18, 2009

Went to Darbar last week.
Had great experience.
We have been to all Indian restaurants in kingston and Darbar stands heads and shoulders above them for the food.
Portions bigger, service great and food very tasty.

Will bee back soon.

“Friendly service, bland food at Darbar”
Reviewed October 3, 2008

Background context: We came to Kingston from a much larger city, with many fine northern and southern Indian restaurants. We were eager to check out Kingston's Indian offerings. At Darbar, we had what can only be described as a lackluster eating experience. While the service was friendly and efficient and the dining room neat, all of the 4 entrees that we ordered were very bland. Little seasoning distinguished one dish from another, and the marvelous, complex flavors that characterize Indian cooking were lacking. Kingston has better Indian restaurants than this.

“Ordered BB”
Reviewed August 22, 2008

Good cross section of indian food. Quick service, good price.

The place is a bit in need of a renovation or new paint, but don't let that fool you.
