I have eaten here quite a few times. I first visited when I dined with a party of over 20 people and everyone was happy with the food and the service. Otherwise I've been in parties of three to five people. The experience has been consistently good. The food has always been excellent. I have spent several years in India and the ambience of the old building in which this restaurant is located and the atmosphere in the subterranean space, with the quality of the dining experience and food is like a visit to a great restaurant in Mumbai or Delhi. I'll continue to eat here whenever I'm in the mood for delicious Indian food.
Have been going here for years, the service, food, and atmosphere are next to none. It is my go-to restaurant in Glebe/City for myself or anyone else!
Great atmosphere and amazing food! Loved every dish we ordered. The location in Glebe is great and is near lots of trendy bars for drinks after your meal.
Centrally located within Sydney in lovely Glebe, Darbar Fine Indian Cuisine serves traditional Indian dishes in an upscale environment that never ceases to impress diners.

Darbar isn’t your average Indian eatery by any means. Beautifully decorated with brick walls and ceilings, the restaurant has a particular rustic feel that makes it unlike any other Indian restaurant in Sydney. And we haven’t even started discussing the food yet – the cuisine on offer consists of pure, natural ingredients and the freshest seasonal produce. Sample mains like the Apollo fish (ling fish marinated in ajwain, chilli, ginger, garlic, coriander, and jeera) or the keema vada, a special dish made of minced lamb, potatoes, chilli, curry leaf, cashews, fresh coriander and five spice powder, all covered in breadcrumbs before being fried. There’s more where that came from – make a reservation and enjoy the flavours of South Asia at this upscale Indian restaurant in Sydney’s Glebe.
