My office is a block from Darbar and I've eaten there at least a dozen times. I like being able to grab a plate and serve myself from the buffet, which is very reasonably priced for midtown Manhattan at $13.95. There are a fair number of dishes of various kinds of meat and veggies. My favorites are the chicken, lamb, and creamed spinach (though the spinach was a bit salty for my taste the last time I tried it). Pita bread served at the table is soft and delicious. I usually go back to the buffet for seconds, even though I'm already full. Service is excellent at the door, not as good at the table -- sometimes the staff keeps your water glass full, sometimes it doesn't, and it can take a while to get the check; usually I have to request it once or twice. I take business associates to lunch here and they are always quite comfortable and satisfied. Darbar takes credit cards, which you'd think would be standard by now but I'll mention it anyway because there are still some holdouts in NYC.
