What began as an Indian mom-and-pop 30-seater has grown into a popular, ornate dining room with a capacity for 200 guests. Sweet or spicy, the fresh, light Indian cuisine at Bombay Darbar is a delight. Diners crunch on crisp papadum wafers while watching Bollywood movies on a large screen and perusing the menu. It's lengthy, but at its heart are the tikkas, tandooris, and vindaloos that fans of Indian food crave. Bright vegetable samosas are a good start, as are some of the tandoor-baked breads — try the soft, fluffy onion-flecked kulcha naan. Chicken tandoori is tasty, and a rich and buttery chicken makhani is even tastier. Lamb rogan josh, yellow lentil dal, biryani rice dishes — they're all good. The short wine list doesn't inspire with any out-of-the-ordinary choices, but the markup is double or less. Cold Kingfisher beer? Yes. Prices might seem steep for this particular ethnic food, but they are in line with competing Indian joints around town. Perhaps more pertinent, dinner will cost less at Bombay Darbar than at restaurants serving different types of cuisine of equal caliber. You really can't do better for Indian food around here. Insider tip: Check out lunch specials and a weekday happy hour offering a selection of $5 appetizers and $6 cocktails, as well as beer and wine deals. Street parking is the cheapest option, but if you can't score a spot, there are plenty of garage spaces in the lush, tree-lined area.
