to foreigners not used to indian food this will appear to be nice indian eatery.....
my friends parents who reside in Vancour too liked the food at Delhi Darbaar.
This place seem to be catering to taste bud of this kind of clientiele only.
The food is so bland here .......that it seems the only way they know to widen their margin on each dish they serve is by saving the amount they would have spent on masalas they could have used to make their dishes bearable.

Gaylord
Kandahar
Khyber
Peshawari

how is Moti Mahal ? at CR2

i would also like to add Ruby Tuesday as one of the worst meals in history.

edit : sorry, i got confused. it was Ruby Tuesday was much much worse than TGIF.

only those interested in drinking more than eating should go to TGIF

add "Ruby Tuesday" to worst expensive fare serving reataurents.

Khyber and Kandahar are not so bad , atleast some dishes are really good there.

Gaylords Bakery and Continental dishes ( though bit expensive) are nice

Gaylord is def a good option and its way cheaper than Kandahar. Like i said next place i want to check out is Masala Kraft at the Taj for North Indian food. I heard some real good things from a few people who were there recently. Anyone been there?

Bhagat Tarachand also serves Sindhi food. I had forgotten about Santosh sagar.

But what about Sardar pav bhaji at Tardeo - its definately one of the best.

Kobe at Chowpatty and Yoko at santacruz will remain all time favorite for sizzlers.

have recently tried the sizzlers at royal cafe - Colaba / Regal and can recommend them too. Tried the Pesto pasta there and found the sauce too heavy.

For pasta in Colaba area without doubt its Churchill.

Rajdhani,all their outlets. Anytime for good food and service.

Could you give me an address for Swati snacks.

havent been to five spice lately so cant comment there hope its not gone bad.

for cheap / good quality food try Aga brothers at Colaba causeway, opp churchhill in the same line as theobroma, they do frankies, chat items and rasta type of chinese only they have place to sit and is popular with the residents around.

And how could you forget - kailash Parbat at Colaba causeway for chat items, try their chole tiki, pani pure, samosa, chloe bread for typical sindhi type of chat and kulfi falooda. Yum

Enjoy
Mani

Delhi Durbar is a very ordinary restaurant in my opinion. Some one once raved about the Dubba Gosht, I tried it & nothing to write home about.

Swati is located about 30 metres ahead and opposite of Bhatia Hospital(coming from Churchgate going towards Bombay Central)

not a place i like very much. I lived above Santosh Sagar for abour 14 years before moving. Their Pav Bhaji is the best. I personally think Sardar sucks.

edit : its a glorified fast food joint.

it dosent do it for me. i have had pav bhaji there twice and it just never clicked. there is no such thing as too much butter in pav bhaji but it cant make up for taste.
like i said the best pav bhaji for me has been Santosh Sagar at Napean Sea Road failing that Shiv Sagar at Kemps Corner.

only ever had lunch at Indigo and that too i havent done in some time.

However my memories are of superlative food and good company.

Place has a great ambience but the pricing is murder as well ( i recall a 2400- $55 INR meal without any drinks)
