Haven't seen anything on this board about Darbar, so I thought I'd put a word in for it. Uptown has generally suffered from a lack of decent Indian food, but I'm happy to report that Darbar may have filled this niche.
My wife and I tried the place before a movie last weekend. There's nothing out of the ordinary on the menu but the food was quite solid. I would not suggest that anyone go out of their way to make this a destination, but if you're looking for a pre-movie bite or are in the area with a yen for Indian you may want to give it a try.
