We enjoyed our visit to Darbaar. Very good Indian food and excellent service. The bar area is also very impressive.

Was pleasant but way too overpriced for what it is. Curries weren’t as flavoursome as expected and for that price I have had better. Customer service and decor was brilliant however and location is lovely

Best Indian Restaurant I've been to in the U.K. The lunch menu and afternoon tea are a bargain. Great offer to have. Would highly recommend.

Very good food - presented well and good taste combinations.
Service was attentive.
A bit pricy.
Fairly quiet on a Monday lunchtime.

Had a 8:30 dinner reservation on a Friday night. Called about and hour before to change time to 9. Host made it sound like it was a big deal as they where busy but she altered the time. Unfortunately I had to call back again to change the reservation to 9:15 again it was made to sound like I asked for the world as they were busy nonetheless the time was again altered. By boyfriend and I arrived at 9:10 pm and we were greeted with 'oh you are here we have been waiting for you' and there was a a negative tone set. When we entered the dining area they were far from busy.... with a 4 top that was closing out and a 3 top that appeared to be finishing their mains. Not much attention was shown to us even though I mentioned it was our anniversary. I ordered the scallops as a starter and was unfortunately underwhelmed when they arrived - they were overcooked, chewy and cold. Service was poor but main was good. Such a shame as we were looking forward to our dining experience. We certainly left unhappy.

Service was great - food lovely - I’d go back. Wasn’t hugely busy but I can imagine it could get lively.

I’ll go back again for a business lunch - goat 🐐 biryani to be recommend

It took a really long time to get our main course and the starters were average/lukewarm. Worse since there were just 2 tables at lunch.

Well designed, spacious, dimly lit (appropriately so) and the food is phenomenal. They didn't have one of the items that we wanted so they switched it for something better (for the same price) and threw in an extra app. The server was extremely polite and attentive. Great experience. Will come again.

The music was too loud - it was difficult to hold a conversation. Understandably the new staff had a few mishaps but there was not a balance between those experienced and those brand new he majority of the staff was new, in addition our waiter with experience was extremely abrupt and inflexible. The hostess mixed up our coats and found ourselves in the back looking through the coats to find ours. Luckily the food was delicious.

Disappointing. Particularly the service. Slow and inefficient with dropped cutlery on more than one occasion. Food average and overpriced.
