Came here a few years ago when we were in town and it was a tiny building. They have since expanded and the building is beautiful. The food is just as amazing as it was. Can't wait to go again.

Some of the best Indiana food I have had traveling around the world. Might be the best biryani rice I have ever had... we added shrimp which was fantastic. Rickey was our server and he did. It miss a beat. There is a line when the restaurant opens at six if you going later make reservations.

My wife and I fell in love with Indian food while in London many years ago. Here in Miami we have been to many but, but first time here. I have to say that when we arrived, they acknowledged us right away and when they checked we had reservations they sat us down promptly. The service was very friendly and... More

Great, authentic Indian food - we ate the paneer makhni, dal tadka (yellow lentils) and tandoori lamb chops. Absolutely delicious! Best possible comfort food at the end of an exhausting cruise vacation (yes that sounds ironical but that will be the subject of a separate review!!!) only a short 4 mile drive from our downtown hotel.

This restaurant serves excellent Indian food. The service is also excellent. We were five people having dinner here. The restaurant is large, and the sound may be a bit load.

If you are craving Indian food in Miami then I highly recommend Bombay Darbar. The service is great and the food comes in a timely fashion. In particular the Chicken Biryani is the best I have ever tasted outside of India. Decor and ambience is great too.

The most decent Indian restaurant in the Miami area. kitchen is clean, You can order your dishes to taste - mild, medium or hot ! The biryani is made fresh. Gulab jamu is a popular sweet dish ! Danny and Nan walk around and keep checking on their customers. Reservations recommended !!

The food is just excellent, but above all, the possibility to choose between mild, medium or hot or very hot allows one to experience Indian flavours and spices without being worried when one is not used to spicy hot dishes. Service is friendly.

Our dining room dining room falls somewhere between red-velvet regal and Slum Dog casual, with white table linens, fresh roses and vinyl-coated menus. There's gentle, tinkling music, authentic if slightly wooze-inducing incense and, for better weather, a petite patio.

Our menu is centered mostly on the northern half of the country but includes fiery Goan specialties and henna-red vindaloo. Our knowledgeable, welcoming and sincere staff makes ordering easy for novices. Meals begin with a complimentary stack of crisp pappadom with thimbles of thick-cut onion chutney and a green-as-fresh-cut-grass coriander version for dipping. A side order of mixed chutneys yields store-bought but no less delicious sour mango pickle and sweet mango chutney.

Come visit our lovely, value-priced dreamy addition to Coconut Grove!
