Everything was really high quality - food, drinks, service. The naan bread was about the best I've ever had. I ordered the Chicken Korma, which should, by definition, pretty mild. The waiter asked how spicy I wanted it. I told him "mild". What I got was actually pretty spicy, though. I'm a real lightweight when it comes to spicy food, so others may have thought it was pretty mild, but it made my face and head perspire. Just a warning - if you're like me, really emphasize the MILD part. Other than that, everything was excellent.

Had awesome dining experience from food to service. For vegetarian dish, malai kofta is highly recommended.

The salmon tikka and shrimp biryani were outstanding. Lamb vindaloo and Sag Paneer very good. Naan also unusually good. If you are craving good Indian food in mid-town, this is a good spot. The staff were very nice and attentive.

We traveled from Boston to eat here and it was our second time there. Excellent food, well cooked, excellent cocktails and consistent good service. The crispy okra is excellent as well as their tandoori offerings. The naans were soft and crisp on the edges and did not become hard to chew even if they cooled down. Strongly recommend this restaurant!

Masala papad wasn't on the menu but they made it for us, which was very nice of them. Food was great - beetroot kofta, gobhi aloo, garlic naan (especially) and butter roti.

Lovely service. Food was excellent. Atmosphere was simple and quiet. Great place for an early dinner before a performance at the City Center.

We found the restaurant to have a nice atmosphere, very attentive staff and a nice twist on some of the standard Indian meals.

One of the Indian meals I've had. I had their chicken mirch bhuna accompanied with tandoori baked veggies. Amazing!!! My only regret - ate alone and could not try more of their dishes and enjoy the amazing food with someone else. Def recommend.

Very enjoyable dining experience. We live on UES but haven't been completely satisfied with offerings for Indian food in our neighborhood. This is the place! We will make the trek to eat at 2 Darbar Grill on a regular basis. Great food and very friendly, accommodating wait staff.

We really really enjoyed the restaurant.
If your not too hungry then share one curry. However if we had a fridge I'd order one each as it was that good !

Nos encanta la comida india y este restaurante ofrece muchas alternativas de curry, tandoori y toda la maravillosa comida de la India. Vimos muchas personas de origen indio y eso siempre es una buena señal! Todo nos gustó, todo!

Stopped in for a later dinner (~8pm) on a Weds evening and we're promptly seated.

Food: We ordered off of the menu (which is very extensive - almost hard to select something) and landed with the vegetarian samosas to start, mango lassi to drink and shared a tandoori grill platter. Portions were relatively small but we also weren't too hungry

Deals: Yelp does a free naan deal, but they don't allow you to swap with a flavored naan.

Service: The servers seemed to have a hard time speaking / understanding English, so we had to speak slowly to help him understand our requests. Not a bad thing, just be ready for it. Also, for some reason our mango lassi's had a ring of lassi that made a mess on our table, this could've been better.

Overall, a great restaurant. The food was very good, though I have had better. Ambiance and service were top-notch. My only other criticism is the somewhat lean portions.

This is a very well-intentioned restaurant in a great part of town and the room is attractive and the staff are delightful and friendly The basmati rice is A+plus, light and fluffy, as was the fruit filled naan bread. The chicken tikka masala was chunks of dried chicken Breast, not moist and juicy as one would expect with a very mundane tomatoy sauce ( did not taste authentic). The eggplant dish was fine but nothing special The menu had many different kinds of protein with same sauces so our feeling was that the kitchen cooked very little to order.
We were disappointed as OpenTable gave it over four stars and we really feel that is overrated. The waiter was very very nice
