  • "Baltimore is filled w/ restaurants & the ethnic food has been superb. My cabbie who was Indian suggested this place and the lunch hour buffet did NOT disappoint. Wonderful. Masalla, saag, lentils, fresh naan and a mix of chutneys. Yum. Very fresh if you're the first patron of the day, too."

  • "Tasty and expansive lunch buffet allows diners to sample several entrees (chicken, fish, and vegetable) appetizers. The chicken tika masala was well seasoned and very flavorful. Our server was attentive and knowledegable. P.S. Note the complimentary parking in Darbar's lot opposite the restaurant."

  • "This was some of the best Indian food we had had in a while, with a larger and more interesting array of choices beyond the usual dishes. Everything we had was delicious. The only slight negative was our waitress, who was good at serving but completely clueless about the food. The owner came over at some point, though, and was very helpful. All in all it was a very enjoyable meal. I plan to return very soon."

  • "The lamb rojan josh tasted stale and old. The lamb itself was dry and tasted like bad quality beef. I would not recommend."

  • "The tables were spaced at a good distance apart so you felt private but still had and energetic atmosphere. This is my first time having Indian food and I enjoyed it very much. I got a lamb dish and ordered it mild and it was great! The service was great! Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Simple set of facts tells this story. Reservation for 815, we showed up at 800. There's no host, just a bunch of backed up reservations crouding the entrance. We were sat as if we ddnt have a reservation ie after those with a later reservation time. Finally sat down at 840. Ordered very fast, got apps fast, main dishes took 40 mins, no apologies from anyone. Request check at 945, ddnt get it til 1000. No apology or realization by anyone that our experience was anything less than 100. Conclusion: This is a family run catastrophe. Grossly underestimated their service time resulting in major backup. Reservations need to be treated as such - especially on valentines day. Kitchen got seriously behind. At least apologize so I can be forgiving."

  • "the food was great but they were a little backed up for the holiday so it took some time for us to get started. They also didn't fill up my water cup often enough and when we were done it took about twenty minutes for someone to bring us the check. the food was amazing though."

  • "Just moved to Fells Point in November 2013, and had been meaning to try out Darbar. I love Indian food - have been a regular at The Ambassador in the past. I have to say Darbar's food was as good if not better. Ambassador is a lovely and formal dining experience...while Darbar is a warm and friendly neighborhood restaurant (while modern looking on the exterior, inside it's just what one expects in Fells - exposed brick, etc. - very cool). The staff was so interested in our satisfaction. The food was awesome. If you like your food very spicy, which I do, just ask...and they will deliver...it was AWESOME and SPICY! A great restaurant...I can assure you I will be a regular."

  • "If you are looking for a moderately priced Indian restaurant, Darbar is a good choice. Located in Fells Point, the dining room is decorated with paintings and other art work with an Indian motif. The service was timely and attentive, and our orders arrived promptly. We ordered Chicken Tikka, Chicken Tikka Masala, and Dal Bukhari; all were medium spicy and delicious. Our only complaint was that there was no one at the hostess station when we arrived, and we had to wait a considerable amount of time in a cold vestibule before we were seated. It could have been just that the restaurant was understaffed on Christmas evening."

  • "Darbar's food is consistently excellent. Our friends (former Baltimore residents) return from Michigan just once a year and we let them pick any restaurant for our annual dinner and they always pick Darbar--because it's ALWAYS delicious! Service is great, too! :)"
