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

Stepped in DARBAAR for trying one more Indian Restaurant but this one turned out to be BEST it in the list of Indian Food . They serve authentic Indian Restaurant.

New Indian restaurant finally open in Hoofddorp almost on our doorstep. Made a reservation for 4 people at a set time. There were some issues with the table, enough chairs and the wait to order, drinks and food. But these can be fixed. Once the...food arrived it was stunning. Great flavour, spicy but not over spicy allowing you to continue to taste the ingredients and the food through the meal without your taste buds being incinerated ! A little pricey for Hoofddorp, but completely authentic, delicious food. Have since been back for a takeaway and noticed an improvement in service.More

Tried this new place as we knew it was coming to Hoofddorp and it was a cold walk from the hotel, so stepping in here made it shorter. Sure they had just opened and sure they needed to sort a few things out but again,...when things go wrong they really didn't handle it well (turns out there's more than one of these so they are not new to this rodeo). Food service was slow, the clearing of the plates very slow, the bill turning up equally slow. It has some good dishes (some not so good) and there are certain things which seem pricey (naan for example) but where you have reliable and good (in Namaste up the road) you are going to have to offer something really good to make us change from there and unfortunately it just didn't hit the spot for our group.More

I have been traveling all over the world, but not knowing that very close to my home there is a amazing restaurant with, as a matter of fact, food preapration which is very very good. Restaurant DARBAAR in Hoofddorp in The Netherlands is close to...Amsterdam and Schiphol International airport. Thanks guys.More

We visited for Valentines day and made a huge mistake!! Its a new restuarant with great ambience and very spacious area. However we had a terrible time waiting more than 1hour for our drinks and starter to be served!!! The main course was served only...after 1.5hrs... They were unable to handle the normal crowd. All the guests were restless and bored of waiting time. The taste of lassi after waiting for 1hr - below average :( Recommend to avoid this place and pls go to other better place.More
