Really delicious, really fresh food. Will be going back.
Amazing food and wonderful service! This place is a hidden gem and would highly recommend to anyone that appreciates authentic, Indian cuisine.
Delicious food in a calm setting with friendly and helpful serve at a reasonable price. Excellent lunch time offers
An excellent change from the usual Indian cuisine. Food freshly cooked with ample portions of meat or Fish. Staff friendly and helpful can’t do enough to please one. Biriani dishes particularly excellent, cooked in the traditional way. A very satisfying and Pleasant experience.
Authentic and delicious food with attentive and friendly service.
Our first time at the Darbar and chosen due to very positive reviews on-line. Nice seating area with enough room between tables for you to feel that you could have a private conversation. Menu was well written and clear, nice to see it on their website as well which gives you plenty of time to chose. Staff were attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Would definitely recommend it and will be visiting again.
We swapped for a takeaway. Brilliant!
Wonderful meal with friends. Its so nice to find a restaurant which has taken the curry to another level!!
Having chosen this by just doing a Google search for restaurants new Rowlands Castle we were pleased with our selection. The restaurant is pleasant is all aspects - music level, waiter service, decoration and overall ambience.
The rice/spinach dish was certainly a change. The chicken biryani was cooked in a pot with a naan bread type pastry lid and it was lovely. The chicken pieces in both main courses were large in both size and quantity.
The bill was probably a bit on the high side for the amount ordered but overall we were extremely happy with the food.
Our one complaint (too strong a word really) would be that a service charge was added to the bill automatically when we are sure that, despite the legal requirement, we don't recall seeing this mentioned anywhere on the menu.
If we lived in the area we would certainly frequent Darbar.
Lovely restaurant and food, very large portions. Great Goan curry, please open one in Wanstead
Excellent food. Please keep it up !!Excellent food. Please keep it up !!Excellent food. Please keep it up !!
We did and they came down from London. Everyone enjoyed the evening and the food was of an exceptionally high standard as is usual at the Darbar
A very pleasant Sunday lunch .Service first rate . Food characteristically tasty.
Great food, excellent service, will definitely visit again
Absolutely fantastic food, top quality. You can taste the difference between their cuisine and the mass produced fare served in most so called Indian restaurants.
Great service and for once truly authentic freshly cooked Indian food. Great to see special menu which included Goan goat curry and delicious chicken with Portuguese Goan influences. Very healthy portions and really good choices for vegetarians, potato dosa delightful. Good range of desserts with really creamy pistachio kulfi and great rice pudding. Reasonably priced certainly going again!
Excellent food, service and experience. Pure authentic Indian food. Fabulous menu. Caters for groups too. Highly recommend.
Dear Rachel, Thank you for review with your kind words. I am glad that you enjoyed our food and place. Our aim is to bring back to Britain the original flavours and taste of Indian cuisine and hospitality as you will find it in India. Namaste Dr. Mayank Gupta
First reaction was not another Indian restaurant for Emsworth, what are they going to do differently.
Well!! It being a new build it also carries that to the inside also which makes it a lovely bright restaurant but also making it a perfect place for special and casual dining. Well thought out menu. Not reams of dishes just the right amount to make the choice hard enough that you need to go back so to try some more. Loved the street food served. Goat curry perfect balance of spices. Serving size were about perfect. We even had a little bit left over for a doggy bag. Well done DARBAR we will be back.
We would recommend to others and look forward to revisiting. Vegetarian and vegan dishes were delicious and we were made very welcome.
Yes, I have already done so many times. Fine delicate flavours and staff are keen to do their best.
Wonderful meal with a friend in a a lovely restaurant. We were impressed with the quality of the food and the ambience of the place. As a vegan, I was pleasantly surprised that they were able to adapt the chef’s selection of three dishes for me. Enjoyed everything about the evening from the attentive staff to the decor and quality of the food. I will definitely be returning.
Great service, delish food and attentive wait staff. I’d certainly go again.
Really enjoyed our visit. Food was superb and made a nice change from the usual Indian dishes
We enjoyed our meal at the Darbar and the service was great, however, we were very dissapointed that there was a fairly high charge for a chutney try, onion salad and raita plus £1 per popadom which also seems steep. We otherwise enjoyed our visit.
Lovely food and friendly staff. Perhaps could have done with 1 more staff as it was busy.
Incredible food, great service and relaxing atmosphere. Perfect venue for a quiet date or special occasion
Not your usual 5 pints and let's go for a ruby establishment. This food is cuisine. The flavours are to die for. We had three different dishes and, of course, we sampled each of them. There were subtle differences in each of them. Superb! Poppadoms, starters mains and drinks just under £30 a head. Very good value for money.
Fabulous food. Incredible flavours. Wonderful friendly service. Thank you very much!
First time at Darbar and VERY impressed! Waiting staff polite, knowledgeable and helpful with the unusual menu choices. Hovering but not intrusive. The food was outstanding. Full of flavour but not too hot for me as a garlic/spice lightweight. Beautifully presented and delicious with something for all tastes. Would definitely recommend to friends and family and it will certainly be our restaurant of choice from now on.
Lovely food. Lovely staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Definitely recommend
Great find a new Indian restaurant opening with very helpful staff and some of the best flavoured Indian food with a real difference. The owners have invested well in brilliant new kitchens and two floors of restaurant-well worth going.
Went here at short notice and received a very warm welcome. Really superb food, very fresh and completely different to your 'average' indian restaurant. The service is also very good - discrete, nothing rushed, and always helpful. In my humble opinion, this is one of the best 3 or 4 restaurants within a 20 mile radius.
This is not a regular every day Indian Restaurant, and full marks to Mrs Ghupta and her team for such an interesting and delicious menu. Some dishes not normally found outside the authentic Indian Restaurants in London, Birmingham etc.
Try the Chana Chat and the Dosa mmm delicious, and the best Biryani we’ve had. All this coupled with a nice setting and first class service.
