We went to Darbaar on a recommendation from our local friends in Amsterdam. It turned out to be a great evening with Gurpreet and his team taking good care of us. Food was amazing especially the Veg Pakoras, Chicken and Goat curries. Also, we managed...to dig in to some Kulfis (dessert) at the end. The staff was accomodating as we were the last people to leave the restaurant. Would recommend this place for anyone who is looking for good Indian curries/ cuisine. Cheers.More

This restaurant came as a recommendation, so glad I took the time to walk from the Hampton up to the restaurant for something to eat. Great selection of food, friendly service, good size portions and didn’t come away feeling totally bloated. I stay in Hoofddorp...a lot so will definitely be back again.More

Friendly Indian restaurant on the main road through Hoofddorp. My colleague was especially taken with the quality of the papadums - maybe the oil used in the preparation has a different taste to that used in England. Shish Kebab isn't served on skewers, but portion...size was good and I found it a bit rich. The vegetable curry was excellent, as was the garlic nan and the sweet lassi. Staff were friendly and attentive and there seemed to a good level of patronage for the restaurant that tis a double-fronted shop in width. I would eat there again.More

We ordered online and it is not first time. Sometimes food is good, sometimes is just ok, but this time was tasteless. Meat ( tandoori lamb) was dry and hard as a stone with not a good taste at all, the paneer jalfrezi did not...taste as it should or as it tasted previously, it was without capsicum and with no spices: simply tasteless. The naan was spongy, the kurkuri bhindi was not the same as last time we ordered and we really liked it but just ok. Even the rice was not good. It is not the first time that this happens to us. Once we have been there on site and had a terrible dinner. I think this will be the last time. They are not reliable, every time you like a dish and you want to have it again, the dish is made differently. Maybe they don’t follow the same recipes and they have different cooks but for the customer this is not a good thing. We gave too many possibilities to them by going 3 times there and by ordering at least 10 times via delivery, now time to say stop has arrived after so many deceptions. Amsterdam has some amazing Indian restaurants and when we feel like Indian food we will visit those restaurants. Here there is no consistency and I feel sorry to arrive to this conclusion because we love Indian food and there are not many quality Indian restaurants around this area. But reliability is important to customers and we don’t find it here.More

What a restaurant ! Authentic Indian food without the brown stuff. Individually cooked dishes that pop with flavor. The best paratha I have had since I made them myself. Flaky and luscious. Able to cope with allergies because everything is cooked fresh. Go here and...enjoy. It’s worth the trip.More

We have already eaten their food via delivery but coming here for the first time was a really nice surprise since the dishes were much better than what we used to. The paneer from the tandoori was great as well as the bombay aloo. Also...the lamb dish I had was super tasty. Definitely better than expected, so I am sure we will go back.More

I had the chicken dansak and it was lovely. Sufficiently spice but not overpowering. I really enjoyed the food. The service was polite and excellent. I will definitely be back.

Went there for celebrating my birthday with the family. Food was perfect. And I know my Indian food (Indian food lover). But also my mother came along and she could not handle heat that well. They made it perfect for her. They overheard in some...way that it was my birthday. Spontaneously they came with ice cream with a sparkler. With the coffee (we did not order desert). The food was perfect as well and good service. I will return soon. Will plan another visit a week later with my daughter who could not be there.More

Ordered a take away from Darbaar and was a bit disappointed with the experience. We asked for it to be as quick as possible. After an hour still nothing. On a Tuesday night we would have thought they won't be that busy. We called and...they said it was on its way. It turned up about 10 minutes later. The order was incomplete so the driver had to come back. The poppadoms were stone cold and my main course was luke warm. The food was tasty but the other Indian takeaways, in Hoofddorp, have never provided poor service like this.More

I ordered online for home delivery and was hugely impressed with the quality of the food. I have been an avid lover of Indian food for over 40 years and this is one of the best I have ever eaten anywhere. It is slightly more...expensive than other local Indian restaurants but is definitely worth that little bit extra. Next time I'll eat in the restaurant, can't wait!More
