It was very VERY loud, it took them an hour and a half to bring food. The food was good but the overall experience wasn’t pleasant.

Service was excruciatingly slow: 30 min to get a menu, another 20 min to order drinks, we ended up canceling half our order to rush out for a show. Good was very tasty- sad experience

Drinks were very exotic. Some of the ones that we tasted were great, some were okay. Food was good along with the ambience.

Such a cool and great place to go for non traditional Indian food. Mona is the best waiter. She knew what to recommend cuz I’m a vegetarian. The outdoor seating and the interior is gorgeous as are the individual bathroom spaces! Will go back again and again.

Service was very slow. Waitress was overwhelmed, took over 30min between each course of just waiting. We had two kids and they were so tired by the end because it took over 4 hours to have our meal

The food was bland and the service was slow. I had booked a table for three like 3-4 weeks in advance and we got this tiny table to work with between three people. We had requested them to give us an extra table so we can put our food there cus literally we were running out of space but nope they didn’t and finally they realized it when we had ordered so much and they could tell things didn’t fit anymore.

Our return to regular dining post COVID and what a great experience that was. Paul, manager at Baar Baar stopped by the table and recognized us after 2 years since our last visit. He was so welcoming and grateful for us coming back that it made our special evening even better. The food as before was excellent and the service was just as good.
I cannot say enough good things about this place it is definitely our go to place for celebrations ( we live 2.5 hours away). Paul definitely made it extra special.

We really loved the food and the ambiance however we felt really rushed. As soon as we got there we were seated and told we had 90 minutes. Waiter kept coming every couple minutes to get our order in. He said he wanted to make sure our order was in within our time period. I met a friend and wanted to catch up, but we didn’t even have enough time to do so. We also didn’t get to order dessert, we received our check right at the 85 min mark. I wouldn’t recommend this place if you want to sit and have a slow meal.

So good! What a discovery! Our new favorite place. The food was delicious, unusual, and perfect. Our server had great recommendations, and all the servers were fantastic. We ended up sitting inside, which is gorgeous and fun. Great evening. Couldn't be better. Loved it, and will definitely be back.

This is by far the best Indian food I’ve ever tasted. My South Asian friend took me to experience Indian food outside of California and it did not disappoint. The food is very simple, but so full of flavor. We ordered the lamb and Chicken curry with the garlic nan as well as some of their cocktails; super yummy! Fernanda, our server, took amazing care of us and was such a pleasure to chat with. Great atmosphere and even more amazing food to enjoy a nice dinner.

The hostess gave us attitude for wanting to sit indoors even though I had reserved indoor seating specifically. She said we only have 1 table available, the entire section we were seated at was empty when we got there. Once the section started getting full they seated another group very close to where we were seated, not abiding by social distancing norms. The service wasn’t too great, we had to get the attention of a different server than the one who took our order initially so that we could order more, they didn’t come to our table at all after food was served, until we tried to get their attention.
