I was looking for a restaurant on open table and so glad that I picked garbar. Came here with my friend and her boyfriend visiting me from Paris. All three of us were absolutely happy with the food, service and ambience.
Our waiter was very attentive and friendly and made us feel very comfortable. We sat there for almost 3 hours chatting and they kept coming with the water and at the end even gave us a free desert! Very nice gesture.
Really liked the food and the service would definitely come back.

If you want some great Indian
If you want some great Indian food - here's the place. A wide-ranging menu with some interesting chat offerings. Lots of vegetable dishes. Service is attentive and prompt. One of the better NYC Indian places.

First time at this restaurant.
First time at this restaurant. My wife and I had the chicken curry (which was DELICIOUS!) The server/s that helped us through our dinning experience were fantastic! Cordial, knlowledgeable and caring about our needs. Great experience!!

Everything is great! My only
Everything is great! My only disappointment is when I asked the waiter to replace rice with something else since I dont eat rice and he told me they dont do "that". I thought it was a little inflexible but overall, good food, good service and good price.

Always great Indian Cuisine
I usually go to 1 Darbar but thought I would try this location since it is closer to where I live. You can always expect great service and excellent Indian cuisine when you go here. Prices are reasonable and if you like spicy food, try the Shrimp Vindaloo. Neither location is ever extremely busy so you aren't rushed. The restaurants won't dazzle you on the inside but I prefer they invest in the food instead of a glitizy environment.

Had an amazing time
My boyfriend and I came here for my birthday On a Saturday.We made reservations and we were seated immediately.The ambiance was very welcoming and romantic.Dim lightening, candles on the table kind of scene.I ordered curry scallops and my boyfriend ordered mango chicken.I'm not a huge fan of curry because it's spicy but I figured I'd give it a try. The curry wasn't overly spicy, just right.The rice it came with was so soft and delicious.My boyfriend's mango chicken was divine. It wasn't overly cooked it was tender and flavorful.Afterwards, they gave us complimentary dessert, idk what it was but it wasn't too pleasant.The service was excellent.They were not overbearing nor did he leave us to flag him down. I would definitely go back again!

Best Indian Food I've had
I took my husband for his birthday weekend to NYC and found this restaurant on Open Table. My expectations were exceeded by both the food and service. Everything that we got was delicious. The staff were attentive and nice. The price was also very affordable for the excellent food that you got. I will tell everyone I know who likes Indian food about this place when they visit NYC.

Darbar does it
We enjoyed this restaurant very much.the food was wonderful.
It started out a bit rocky,they had a very large table with noisy children, so they weren't seating in the back of the restaurant, they were very apologetic for it. As soon as that group left the atmosphere was lovely .mixed drinks are not their strong suite, I'd stick to straight or wines. Again they made it right. We met the chef and he sent us a special desert.
The scallop appetizer was wonderful, the lamb dises were delicious,the staff was very nice. Very reasonably priced.

Quiet and Delicious
My parents were in town visiting this weekend and Darbar was the perfect fix for their first night here: conveniently close to their hotel, delicious food, and quiet ambience--all necessities after a long day of traveling. Our waiter, Harsh, was very attentive. I was the only vegan out of the group and Harsh made sure not to forget. As our food was served he realized that the rice had dairy in it and immediately offered whole wheat roti as a supplement. Harsh was able to make great recommendations based on what each of us said we were in the mood for. If you're looking for a good, low-key Indian dinner with friends or family Darbar Grill is a good option in Midtown East.

Well above average!
Not your typical Indian place. Excellent food, fresh flavors, well prepared.

Fine restaurant for a very good meal with a friend when you want to talk and be treated well by staff.

good indian food
overall quite good, the place is small but food is well prepared with a touch of creativity which is not usual in indian restaurants. Service is ok, waiters are nice and kind but kind of slow. good option if you like indian

Overall experience was good. Nice decoration. Wonderful service. Food was not very impressive, but still good food.

I have been coming for the last 2 years: Darbar Grill is consistently fresh and delicious with professional service. Each time I try a new vegetarian dish and it continues to add to my repertoire of Indian food. Keep up the good work.

We will be back!
Great Indian food, thoughtfully prepared and beautifully served. For something off the beaten track, this restaurant is a find. Service was impeccable.

Indian at it's best
This meal was absolutely delicious. Everything we ordered ranked among the best Indian dishes we've eaten. We had chicken and lamb and the Garlic Nann was incredible.

This was the best Indian restaurant
This was the best Indian restaurant I ever tried. I was amazed with the service. The way staff serves you is unbelievable. They bring the hot service plates and wipe them before they put them in front of you (which should be a normal practice in every restaurant). Totally a place to try. Can not wait to go back.
