I have been going here for the past decade and always enjoyed the food. They will season and spice it to whatever you want. Which many places won’t do. So for those like me who enjoy a rather milder spice, they will readily comply and...More

Chose Darbar for my birthday dinner. The atmosphere is nothing special but the food is always great! The prices are comparable or perhaps even a little less expensive with other like restaurants in Kingston. We have eaten here for years and have never left disappointed.

We had one wobble in 2014, but since then we have consistently had the most excellent food from Darbar. The meat is always tender, the food always tasty, and there is nowhere else in the City that consistently comes up with the goods

Love this place. The food was awesome, I ordered the beef vanidaloo with rice and it was awesome, with extra spice. Paired with their house wine. Highly recommended

I was in Kingston on a food and sightseeing trip recently and Darbar was on my list of must visits. This was because they had quite an attractive vegetarian menu with so many options to choose from. It's great to have choices as opposed to...More
