Excellent food and excellent service
Great the first visit in February but this time in April, we were offered a different but very limited menu (not as advertised) which was not as good. It seems this might be only for the Groupon offer. Also offered cocktails but charged for wine. The Groupon offer needs to be clear what is on offer as it is misleading at present. Food and service good but a little disappointing overall as we felt we misled our guests.

I took my husband for a bday meal and the place looks 👌, I loved the stater and main, it was 👌 the portion wasn’t as big, but it was fine for me. I will definitely go there again 😊. This was with the 2 course meal deal on groupon 😊
I have eaten twice at Darbaar restaurant, and the food has always been excellent. The Groupon deal of 2 courses and a glass of wine is great value.
Excellent food and great service
Good quality food with good spices. Cooked fresh to order
visited on a Tuesday night with my sister, we were seated straight away and were delighted to see how nice it was inside especially the bar. Staff were very friendly, food and cocktails were great especially the butter chicken curry and the pornstar martini (which was the best one I had) I would say that the service was a bit slow, other tables had come and left before us because it took quite a while to get the waiter's attention but understandable as they were quite busy for a Tuesday night and only had one waiter on the floor. All in all a good experience and will definitely be coming back!
Great food! Only thing is that you have to buy naans and rice separately and they won’t let you use the £25 mains budget that they give you, for the naans. You also need to pay service charge for the whole meal, so be prepared to spend another £30 for all of that.
Expect 'different dishes' here served with 'a touch of class'!
The menu included some unusual and well-cooked dishes, and was good value with a Groupon deal.
