My family enjoyed a delicious and delightful meal. We were visiting New York and love Indian food. The menu looked good. We ordered Chicken Tikka Masala, Lamb with Saagwala, Mixed Vegetable Korma and Eggplant Bhartha as well as Peshwari Naan. Our favorite was the lamb. Outstanding! The other meals were very good. The chicken dish was very tender. The amount of food was perfect. Ambiance was lovely and the wait staff was fantastic. Very clean bathrooms (always a good sign)!

Got there late, staff was very attentive. Tikka masala sauce was very good, not spicy enough, despite out request to make it so.
Chicken samosa was greasy outside, and very dry inside. Would NOT recommend
Overall, I wouldn't seek the place out, but if it were close, it would be ok.

Me and my sister went there for Restaurant week based on the reviews we read online. I feel that my experience was contrary to what I read. First of all, the restaurant smelled like bug spray. It took a long time before we got our appetizer. When the main course arrived, ALL of the food was cold. The dessert selection was not work eating. All in all, not a good stop on our list of restaurants. After paying $100 for a meal that was cold and mediocore, if I had to do it all over again, I would not have come. It was my sister's first time of eating Indian food and 2 Darbar didn't leave a good impression. Just not a good experience.

Excellent food and service, as always. One of the best Indian restaurants in Manhattan!

UPDATE: Why two stars overall? Our most recent visit was a 1,000 point reservation through Open Table. This is why we chose the restaurant for a pre-Carnegie Hall dinner. I even double checked in the app AFTER WE WERE SEATED. It still said 1,000 points. The next day, I checked and we only received the standard 100 points. I emailed Open Table and never received a response. Extremely disappointing. Sadly, I highly doubt we will be back.

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.

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!

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.
