AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE THE PLAGUE! The food is an absolute disgrace to Indian cuisine. The service is ridiculous, the waiter rude and at times, downright creepy. The food was disgusting, see-sawing between lack of salt and flaming hot spice. We left most of it at the table. Adding insult to injury was a mandatory 18% tip for our party... More

Darbar was in the shopping center next to our hotel. We had such bad experiences with Indian restaurants in Orlando that we were sceptical about going to another Orlando Indian restaurant. However I had checked the reviews online and they were very good so we decided to give it a try. Unreal!!!!! The waiter, Khan, was fantastic. He explained that... More

Had the palak paneer with samosa thali for $9.95 with dessert. It was quite good and the service met my needs.

They are serving Pakistani food (beef & nihari) under the guise of Indian food, and doing it badly. I eat a lot of Indian food and this is some of the worst I have tried. We came in for Dinner and there were only one or two other groups. The waiter was wearing a dirty apron and had no idea... More

I visited this hotel with my friends yesterday. Lamb was not cooked properly. 28% tax charge from us

Just carried out Chicken Biryani and Tarka Daal - as Indians who cook these dishes, we can easily say that, hands down, it was the worst Biryani and Daal we have eaten. The Biryani rice and chicken was too dry with stale side of yogurt. The daal was tasteless, flavorless, without much tarka at all.... getting ready to trash it.

Food is ok -... More

WE dined at this restaurant and were mildly impressed by the food. I am spoiled that in the past 45 years of dining on Indian cuisine in the US, UK and in India, I have experienced some of the finest Indian cuisine on the planet. Although an effort was made, this restaurant's food was ordinary. The vegetable samosas were bland... More

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is used to either real Indian food. I would recommend the chicken tikka or the bihari chicken.
