Led by owner Vinay Krishna, whose years of experience make him an expert in the realm of Indian dining, Darbar attracts guests from near and far to sample the high-end biryanis, curries and traditional dishes on offer.

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.

Excellent food. Lots of delicious dishes and a bit different to the usual. Service is excellent. Friendly and efficient. One of the best Indian restaurants in the inner city.

Great customer service and food! Glebe has loads of good restaurants but Darbar is something else. Fantastic atmosphere and enough space for bigger groups as well.

Wow. This restaurant not only has an intriguing decor but the food was fantastic. Definitely taken on a journey to India via our taste buds. Superb spices and flawless flavours all met with service that was brilliant and making sure we left wanting to come back again sometime. Highly recommended.

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.

Not the fastest service but extremely pleasant wait staff. (always a good idea to offer a drink as soon as guests are seated - helps sales and starts the night off on a good note - we waited some time and then had to flag down the waiter). Food was excellent Wait time between order and food arrival was quick. Wait staff were knowledgeable about the various products - even understood the processes of some. Will return -

Always wonderful food. We were late for our booking and their website says they can only guarantee the table for 15mins after the booking time, but our table was still waiting :) Service was very attentive but not obtrusive. It is a hidden gem! The best dish of the meal was the cauliflower (aloo gobi).

My guest were very pleased with the service of the friendly staff and the yummy food that was on the menu. We visit this restaurant very often and had previously had an anniversary function too. It's a great place for an Indian cuisine.

had a great time, great service, good value and most importantly amazing food. And I'm part Indian and therefore a big critic when it comes to Indian food. My girlfriend and I couldn't recommend this place anymore, simply amazing. Thank you Darbar.
