If your looking for authentic Indian food Darbar is the place to go. Some of the best Korma and Vindaloo I've eaten. Additionally the restaurant gets an A rating for cleanliness form the city.

There is a lot of variety on the buffet and several kinds of bread. Neither my memory nor my knowledge of Indian food serves to be more specific.

Darbar Indian restaurant has a prime location in midtown Manhattan, right in the heart of New York City, and is a superb choice for authentic Indian food and ambiance. Besides the traditional korma and tandoori preparations, the kitchen experiments with trans-ethnic fusion dishes like Maine crab cakes, and potato croquettes stuffed with goat cheese. Make sure to take advantage of the lunch buffet special, with seafood, lamb or goat, chicken, vegetables, salads and much more.
