Darbar has lost us completely. We had given it a chance, but once again they could not prove themselves - the buffet lacked variety, no plain rice included, food was overly spicy, the restaurant owners were sitting next to our table awkwardly looking at us eating the food. It was a very strange experience and waste of money. Would not recommend to anyone.

Very authentic but spicy. Fewer veggie than meat dishes. Not optimal for an American vegetarian. Service and staff lovely

The food was excellent. We especially enjoyed the chicken tikka, butter chicken and fresh paratha and naan. Our server was nice and accommodating. We will definitely go back.

We work locally and order take out often to our office. I have also been to the restaurant a few times to dine there. The food is always fantastic. Don't come here if you want the same reliable Indian restaurant flavors that you get at most other places. Darbar has distinctive recipes that are delicious. They do a buffet that is great if you are in a hurry, but ordering off the menu will give you more options.

We went as a large group (dozen) and ordered numerous different dishes. Each and every single one of them was simply cold and tasted nothing like it was supposed to. They also overcharged us and did not return all our left over naans. Absolutely pathetic place and service.

You had better like spicy food, because it is spicy as well as tasty and well prepared. Naan is very good. Portions are quite generous.

For a neighborhood ethnic food restaurant, it was outstanding. Very simple decor. Neat, clean and well lit. Never had Pakistani food previously, so hostess helped us with our selections. Very flavorful. We're used to spicy food, but medium spicy seemed perfect.
