We stopped in on a whim and really enjoyed their advertised curry specials. When we entered, we were the only guest. When we left, the place had filled with Indian clientelle. Obviously, we had chosen a very good Indian restaurant that served authentic Indian cuisine!

We ventured into Darbar Indian Restaurant after a day at the local parks. The restaurant is a tourist rip off. Lets start with their advertised special in which $25 includes 2 entrees, a single naan with rice, and desert which supposedly feeds two ppl. The waiter first stated that each entree is enough for two ppl. However after a couple... More

Simple, clean restaurant with large menu. The navratan korma & Goan fish curry were both very flavorful. Good service.

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

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.
