Sitar was excellent. I live in NYC and thought I would be wasting my time and money. It was a group of 7 friends and fam, we walked in without reservations and were able to be seated right away. Everything was delicious! It's not cheap but the food was worth it. Also the service was great, the owner was on-site... More

Poor service, poor quality food, overpriced. Lamb in the pasanda was very tough. Tikka masala sauce was very strong, not creamy at all as it was described. Best thing was the naan bread, oh and they ran out of pilau rice, we were offered fried rice instead. Bit of an own goal for an Indian restaurant!

We have dined here many times over the last 2 years and it has been very good but this last visit was very poor, both food and service, a real shame.

Nice ambience and decor but food not so good. Nothing wrong with the quality but if you love your Indian food and are used to having it your way this won't suit. Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Korma absolutely not like anything we've had before. Sorry but won't be returning

We chose to go here as a group of friends but the impression we got was that groups are not wanted. Not all the group had arrived before we were told to be quiet by the manager, the restaurant was hardly busy, two other people. Having ordered food and drink the six of us continued to chat and laugh, the... More

This was our 4th visit. We always go as myself and my partner love curries but I'm afraid I would be reluctant to go back. I don't know if their fridge had broken down but when I asked for a side salad with my meal,they told me they couldn't provide one and the beer served was warm. We complained. They... More

Our ChickenTikka starter was under cooked and luckily it was spotted half way through eating, as the Restaurant is quite dark inside. We called the waiter and he took it away and we were told, that the starter was on the house.The main course was average only.
