Welcome to Darbar - Home of Indian
Culture and Culinary Art
The central meeting place in the Royal Palaces of India, Darbar
brought together Emperors and Maharajahs and their Cabinets and
entourages. Here, royal guests were refreshed with delectable
dishes and drinks, while they enjoyed performances by famous artists,
poets, writers, singers, dancers and actors.
At Darbar Exotic Indian Cuisine, dine
on dishes fit for Emperors and Maharajahs, in a setting that
recaptures the regal aura of Darbar at the Royal Palace. Rich
red and gold decor, and classical Indian music featuring the exotic
tones of the sitar, shenhai, and many other Indian instruments,
soothe your senses as you await your meal.
Indian cuisine holds a proud place in the pantheon of international
culinary delights, and the menu at Darbar reflects the magnificent
geo-ethno-cultural diversity of India, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Because each dish is unique, created
specifically for each of our guests with the time-honoured traditions
of fine Indian cuisine, we appreciate your patience while we perfect
Savour dishes that have been spiced to perfection: some flavourfully
mild, some warmer and spicier, some full of the scorching heat
of the Indian plains, some intricately sweet and tempting, and
all designed to delight with their harmony of complementary tastes.

through the menu and assist you in selecting a fine combination
of flavours. Each dish is prepared to individual order; please
