Darbar's Service - A Joke

I visited Darbar and was astounded at the poor service- the waiters were impolite to both me and my guest. He seemed totally disinterested when he took our order and had an arrogant attitude when I am not sure if he could even speak English! I urge the Owner to spend some money in training his/her waitstaff and host/hostess to show some politeness and proper social etiquette to its patrons. I definitely do not recommend this restaurant. In addition the food is totally overpriced-just get Madhu Jaffrey's Indian cookbooks, buy the ingredients and make it yourself! Avoid this pretentious restaurant!
