The food in this restaurant was excellent. The waiters very attentive to your needs, nothing is too much trouble for them.

This is my goto place when I want to nip out for a curry with friends or family. The menu has a number of interesting twists on the usual Indian fare, the Chicken Shatkora Shahi being my current favourite. It can get busy, so it's wise to book Fri / Sat. Service can be a bit mixed - mostly attentive,... More

Edible curry but as my wife is pregnant I'd like the lamb to have been cooked through. The meal was fine and they accepted the tastecard without any problems. Not sure I'd come back as there are a lot of curry houses in cambridge

Been going here years so thought I should do my bit and write a review. Over the 20 years they have had the same chef and same owners so you tend to know what welcome and quality of food you are going to get. Think the portion sizes are very large and the tandoori chicken is the best I have... More

Went there with my husband on Wednesday 10 August, 2016, 6.30, there were very few people in. I had Chicken Kashmir and the chicken was extremely salty and watery – I didn’t eat it all, I made a comment about this and the waiter just looked at me and then removed my plate! My husband wasn’t too pleased with his... More

Had a meal at the Sitar this week. Good choice on the menu which to me promised more than was delivered. Good portion sizes but not brilliant quality at an average price level? The nam was poor. The decor is a bit odd inside with a strange kind of pelmet which I couldn't work out. The service was good, friendly... More

Tried walking in on a Saturday night to find it fully booked. This is the first time we have found this in many visits but it's good to see it remains popular. Returned after advised 45mins and it had quietened down a lot. Apart from a longer than usual wait for food (nearly an hour from being seated to food... More
