There are a lot of Indian Restaurants in Dubai but if you would like to try some North Indian cuisine that’s priced reasonably then Delhi Darbar is the place, which is also celebrating 30 years in UAE. They have 6 branches in Dubai and Sharjah.
We ordered the simple salted lassi or laban and their special mango lassi. Both of the drinks were equally delicious and refreshing.
For soups, we ordered the hot and sour soup and the chicken corn soup. The soups were excellent in taste and presentation. I would recommend the hot and sour soup which was served with crispy noodles.
The first starter that we tried was the Tangri Kebabs which were basically grilled drumsticks. They were slightly spicy but very flavorful.
The paneer tikka was ‘melt in your mouth’ kinda goodness. It was as good as the non-vegetarian starters.
The tandoori fish or grilled fish was really tasty. The only problem I had was that the fish was full of bones. A lot of bones!
The shami kebabs were huge and tasty. We would definitely recommend these. One kebab can easily be shared by two if you’re ordering as the main course too.
The butter chicken was creamy and on a spicier note. We have had this a lot of time before and consider us a fan!
Tawa chicken which is their specialty. Please note it comes with a lot of oil! With the bread, it tastes very good!
They claim their mutton biryani to be the best. It’s their best dish in Bombay! We thought it was good but not the best.
The doodi ka halwa was surprisingly very delicious. We would recommend this for sure.
Gulab Jamun, on the other side, was a miss. We didn’t enjoy it as much as the other desserts that we tried. Overly sweet.
The Kulfi was very rich and creamy, just as it should be, with no ice crystals. It came with a side of falooda noodles. Perfect end to the meal!
We would recommend Delhi Darbar! The Barsha location has many booths and is brightly lit. The service was excellent. Don’t hesitate to ask recommendations from the waiters as they know the dishes very well. Bon Appetit!
