Drawing inspiration from the banquets of the Indian Royal Court, this City restaurant boasts a vibrant yet relaxing setting with its modern décor influenced by the furnishings of ancient Indian palaces.
Chef Abdul Yaseen, formerly of Cinnamon Kitchen and Cinnamon Club, uses traditional techniques gathered from the diverse regions of India; including grills, spit roasts and clay ovens; while the restaurant also features an interactive grill area, adding an extra dash of theatre.
Enjoy favourites such as biryani or try something different like the house special nawabi slow-roasted leg of lamb or the Royal Pot before sipping spice-infused cocktails at the plush bar.

Decor & Lighting: Modern design with low light levels and separate bar area as well... more
I went to Darbar at the end of a long business trip to London. It was a short stroll from my apartment. The ambiance was quite nice and I was looking forward to a lovely meal. I started with the samosa chaat and had the navratan korma along with rice, naan and a beer. The chaat was nicely spiced but a bit soggy.
