I come here often, by myself after work or with friends and I've never been disappointed. The quality and the freshness of the food is just amazing, the service is always great (Angie, the manager, is just a lovely person!). I'll keep coming back, definetely!

Service although very pleasant is extremely slow. Food is tasty Goat curry was good,however, beef was very tough. Atmosphere is rather cold as it was years ago when it was Darling Mills. Not sure if it's worth a return visit.

Been to dozens of Indian restaurants in Sydney. Darbar is the pick of the lot. Delicious food - if you are a meat eater don't miss out on the Chicken Chat Pat.

Darbar is hands down the best Indian restaurant in Sydney, don't let anybody tell you otherwise. We came to that conclusion after trying all the other highly rated Indian restaurants in the city. In fact, we have been to Indian restaurants around the world and...More

An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a
deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It
originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do,
but has transformed into a student-centric melting
pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as
standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or
as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and
Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the
