Excellent service stands out. The place is very luxurious for an Indian restaurant. The dishes were delicious, although fairly expensive. We had a large appetizer platter, which although tasty, had a lot of deep fried items. We then started to work on 2 plates; thankfully...More

We didn't book but had no problem getting a table. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We both had starters and a curry & the food was really good and we thought reasonably priced too.

Sitar offers the best of North & South Indian cuisine - from the tantalising tandoori to rich creamy kormas. Naan bread is served fresh from the tandoor oven and there are many vegetarian options. Sip a cocktail at the Sitar bar while you nibble on tasty small bites. After dining in the comfort of the AC feel free to smoke the hookah on the balcony overlooking the most popular street on the west coast. Expect an unforgettable culinary experience served with warm indian hospitality.
