    Delicious! Always heard great things about Sarban, and the experience lived up to expectation. We had the tasting menu which was incredible from start to finish, each dish different and bursting with flavor. The service was excellent, very warm and friendly. I want to take all my friends here. We will definitely be back. Thank you!

    This is just an overall great restaurant! The staff is very helpful and friendly, happily switch to english if needed, and the food was just great. We had the surprise 3 course menu, some of the vegetarian version, and everything was delicious, we also got a nice explanation if what everything was and in what circumstances Afghani people would eat it. Great service!

    A taste adventure - was our first Afghaans food and it was extra-ordinary - from all perspectives - food and super service. Take the surprise course and enjoy. Close the meal with a liquor. We will remember this event for a pretty long time.

    Enjoyed the food, but being refused tap water while also ordering many beers will make sure I will not be returning to this restaurant.

    The service is outstanding! The waiters explained everything, they made sure we know what we had in front of us and we weren’t disappointed with any of the surprise dishes we ordered. The food was excellent and diverse. Everything on point! However, the restaurant is quite full since it’s so popular. That makes the atmosphere a bit stressed. We’d come back anyway!

    Excellent service and delicious food. We had a great romantic dinner celebrating our 5th anniversary with my fiancé and they even gave us a free special drink to celebrate.

    This was a pleasant spot with good food. Diners should be warned, though, that they cannot purchase dishes individually, only as part of a three-course meal.

    We felt rail roaded into the tasting menu since the menu was only in Dutch and the very nice waitress was vehemently pushing for it. The only option is €30 for 3 courses. No tap water only bottles. No bread. No refill on the hot tea. Glass of wine around €8 Small appetizers on big plates were not noteworthy. The main included 2 big rice dishes and about 8 small sides such as beets, lentils, chicken and a few lamb chunks. Think Indian restaurant chutney and vegetables. I love daahl but the portion was maybe 3 tablespoons. The dessert was a small scoop of ginger ice cream a small scoop of vanilla ice cream and a tiny portion of rice pudding. 3 tiny white desserts in 3 white bowls - very uninspiring. No credit cards meant my husband had to trek in the rain and dark in an unfamiliar city to find an ATM. The cost for this Indian like meal was nearly $100usd. We got hungry a few hours later. I personally dislike not having options.

    We had the "surprise" menu (tasting menu), covering more than half of the menu. The quality of the food was excellent, and we enjoyed every dish. The plates themselves were also beautiful, painted with very nice designs. The only downside was that the place was a little crowded and quite noisy.

    Kudos to the brilliant young chef who creates food with complex and delicious flavors and who personally checks with diners about their enjoyment of their meal. The experience couldn’t have been better.

About the restaurant

Darah is het vierde familierestaurant dat in mei 2017 is opgericht door de familie Alizadah. Vanaf januari 2010 ontvangen zij hun gasten met veel liefde en plezier in restaurant Sarban in Tilburg. Het culinaire succes heeft zich ondertussen uitgebreid naar Den Bosch (restaurant Zaher, 2013) en Waalwijk (restaurant Attan, 2014). Sinds 2016 kun je door cateringbedrijf Saaz ook je feesten en partijen laten verzorgen.

Betekenis Darah

Darah verwijst naar de vruchtbare grond tussen de voet van de berg en de rivier. De grond is bij uitstek geschikt voor het verbouwen van diverse gewassen omdat dit veel voedingsstoffen bevat.

In elk restaurant van de familie Alizadah, wacht je een hartelijke ontvangst. Persoonlijke aandacht en vriendelijkheid zijn diepgeworteld in de Afghaanse cultuur. De gastheren en gastvrouwen staan open voor al jouw vragen.

Hart voor de maatschappij

Ze voelen zich maatschappelijk erg betrokken bij hun woon- en werkomgeving en streven ernaar om op verschillende manieren de mensen om zich heen te helpen. Tot op heden is het ze gelukt om op de volgende manieren een kleine bijdrage te leveren;

• Ze nemen bewust alleenstaande minderjarige asielzoekers aan als personeel om hen een kans te bieden op een succesvolle toekomst in Nederland. In het restaurant proberen ze zoveel mogelijk Nederlands te spreken. Dit om de integratie te bevorderen.

• Ze stellen wekelijks een tafel beschikbaar aan Quiet500 members. Dat zijn Tilburgse gezinnen die onder de armoedegrens leven.

• Als actief lid van het Elftal tegen Armoede proberen ze met verschillende projecten het percentage van de mensen die onder de armoedegrens leven te verlagen.

• Via het bestuur van de stichting Samen Doen proberen ze nieuwkomers en huidige inwoners van Tilburg met elkaar te verbinden. Ook creëren ze werkgelegenheid voor de nieuwkomers.

• Ze nemen deel aan verschillende veilingen, waarvan de opbrengst vaak gaat naar de ouderen in de stad.
