Romantic, quiet, with delicious authentic Indian food. Had a Sweet Lassi for the first time, which was yummy (although I recommended they add Mango to the choices since they are falling off the trees everywhere!). Remember to order rice; it doesn't come automatically with your...More

We visited last night and the Sitar restaurant is very expensive when compared to U.K. Indian/Bangladeshi retstaurants even allowing for the fact that the £/$ exchange is poor at the moment. Some of the dishes are 2-3 times as expensive as back home. For me,...More

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.
