A word from Raj Darbar Indian Restaurant
Welcome to Raj Darbar..... "The Royal Court”..Winner of Michelin Guide BiB-Gourmand Award for years 2011,2012,and 2013.

Over the centuries Indian cuisine has been influenced by many cultures. Raj Darbar takes the best from the culinary extravaganza of the great Moguls and bring you a "repast".


On the culinary level the east conquered the west, and the universal popularity of curry is the delicious proof. Herbs and spices are used not only for aroma, but also for their digestive and nutritional values.


Wholesome food and good health are closely linked. At Raj Darbar we use only the finest ingredients to prepare dishes that are as healthy as they are delicious.


Our welcome comes from deep within our heart. We will strive to make your dining experience a return to those golden times when every meal was a feast. Our guests are our friends.


Enjoy your delightful experience at Raj Darbar.

Diner Reviews
  • "What can I say? The food was VERY GOOD. We went there for dinner and, despite having a lot of delicious dishes (we ate a lot), none of us felt 'heavy' the next morning. That means, the food was fresh and of good quality. Servings are GENEROUS, service is great and the ambience is pleasant. I strongly recommend this place."

  • "Far and away one of the most friendly wait staffs I have encountered. Everyone had a sincere smile and made you feel that they were glad you were there. Food tasted good, hot and fresh. Especially liked the vegetable samosas."

  • "The food was amazing - very authentic. We just returned from a trip to India and this place transported us back. Best Dhal, roti and nan. Highly recommended. It is quite pricey but the portions are huge. You can share."

  • "I really enjoy Indian food and my wife is a vegetarian. We were both very pleased."
    Dined on 8/14/2013
  • "The quality of the food was very poor -- certainly not up to their prior standards. The waitstaff was nonexistent even though there was only one other table in the restaurant. We won't be back. Lousy service / lousy food."

  • "Terrible Service. Lost our order and never came to check up on me."

  • "The restaurant was quite busy on Saturday for dinner. The staff were very polite, but seemed a bit rushed and frazzled. Our food was delicious and way more than we could finish. I had a shrimp dish in thick tomato sauce and my partner had a curried vegetable dish. The Red Rock wine was a good compliment with both dishes. The Nan was a no."

  • "Walking into the restaurant gets me going. The aromas are wonderful. I wish it didn't take so long to get a waiter to pay attention once we are seated and come back to take my order. Once the food finally arrives it is memorably good. I wish that I didn't feel so neglected while I watch neighboring tables eating and I can't get a waiter's attention to place my order."

  • "Food is delicious and offered good variety of naan. Service needs to be improved. good place to dine if I lived in the area but there are other Indian restaurants with equally good food with better service for the price."

  • "WE ORDERED BREAD AND ASKED THAT IT BE SERVED WITH OUR APPETIZERS. THE OWNER REFUSED TO BRING US BREAD UNTIL THE ENTREE WAS SERVED....OUTRAGEOUS...WILL NOT GO BACK...FOOD WAS JUST FAIR"

  • "Didn't quite live up to it's bib gourmand status. Pretty good Indian in a nicer location, but was hit or miss. The paratha was horrible. The palak paneer was okay. The garlic naan and malai kufta were good. The service was well meaning, but very slow. Even though the restaurant wasn't busy, it took forever for them to just set up a table for 2. They brought the check without even asking if we wanted dessert, which I would have gotten."

  • "This is a challenging restaurant to review. The food is consistently very good (we get delivery from here frequently), and chose to dine in this time, which was a big disappointment due to the terrible service we experienced (including having to get up to get our own water refill). Bottom line: stick to delivery from Raj Darbar and save yourself a dining headache."

  • "This place was horrible and I will never go back. Made reservations on Open Table and got there about 10-15 min early. They said they were full and it would be at least a 30 minute wait, even though I had reservations. Waited there for over an hour and never got seated. Ended up doing take out instead (which took a total of 1.5 hours sitting around at this restaurant) and when I got home, the food wasn't even that good. No one apologized, the service was horrible, and owner/manager looked like he had no clue on how to run his business. Other people came in with reservations and experienced the same thing. I watched people at their tables who waited longer than I did, and when I left, they still never received their food."

  • "I have been here before, and did not find the food quite as tasty as my prior visits. The meat was not as tender and flavorful as before, and some of the ingredients were not as plentiful. My tastebuds were not as pleased as when I visited before. We were a small group, but had to remind the staff about our drinks, and the Naan was not brought with our meals, but a few minutes later, after we also reminded them. The wine's description did not match it's actual flavor. It was too sweet to accompany our meals, and we would not have ordered it, if it had been clearly and correctly described. I was somewhat disappointed, as I had always really enjoyed Raj, and recommended it to friends."

  • "My wife had the Chicken Vindaloo and I had the Lamb Vindaloo, both of which were absolutely phenomenal! We also got the Garlic Naan which was fantastic as well. The only minute drawback was the price of wine for the quality - but all in all, didn't take away from the great food at all."
    Dined on 8/24/2012
  • "Great food, but better for take-out than dining in. The service was slow and awkward. Our waiter kept asking us if we had ordered after we had placed an order with him. They forgot one of the dishes we ordered. I have had take-out from here many times, and the food is always great."
    Dined on 8/18/2012
  • "The food was fine, and I might order delivery from there, but will not return. The service was so slow that it ruined the meal. THey took 1/2 hour to take our drink order, and never asked if we wanted a second."
    Dined on 8/15/2012
  • "The food was just ok. The service was mediocre. Not a restaurant we want to go back to especially with many others in the city where the quality of food and service is significantly better."

  • "The food, service and ambiance were fabulous. The flavors lingered and I was in food bliss heaven. My date was impressed that I knew about such a wonderful restaurant."
