Excellent food with large menu to choose from. They got the spices just right for us.
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)!
Excellent. Had a good experience
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.
Delicious! Very friendly! Nice place for quiet dinner!
Celebrated my husbands birthday, everything was great.
We had a delicious vegetarian meal at 2 Dunbar Grill.
The food was really good. I would recommend it. The stain glass on the ceiling is beautiful.
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.
The staff was amazing. The food was to die for first time having Indian food.and love it
Great food and service. Will definitely return.
Excellent Indian food
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.
Excellent food, pleasant and helpful service, relaxing ambience
Darbar has always been an amazing experience. The staff is friendly and the food is great. If you are a meat lover or a vegetarian you will not be disappointed!
I frequently dine at Indian restaurants in different cities and countries. 2 Darbar is one of the very best. Food was excellent as was the service. And the ambiance is lovely.
This Was a wonderful place to meet old friends for a delicious meal. The noise level wasn’t too much to carry on a conversation. It was such an enjoyable evening.
The food was ok, not remarkable. The service was attentive. I was glad that they served cocktails.
We chose this place for a renuion of friends because one of us is a vegan. Each of us found wonderful food to eat and the mango cocktails were lovely. We can’t wait to return.
Good Indian food as well as good service. I enjoyed my meal.
This is the best Indian food I’ve ever had and great service!
Love love loved our dinner at Darbar. It was a super easy last minute reservation with impeccable service and food. Very authentic northern Indian cuisine made to perfection. Would recommend this to others and will definitely visit again.
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!
amazing food and really nice service. Will go back for sure!
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.
Consistently excellent food and service.
Everything is delicious and perfectly prepared.
Amazing in every way.
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.
Great gluten free options
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.
Amazing food I a chef and this place knocked it out the park, real authentic Indian cuisine.
