My husband and I were looking for an interesting place for dinner and decided to try Sitar. It was authentic Indian food and the manager/owner was helpful in our meal selections. The vegetable curry was delicious and my husband liked his vindaloo lamb dish.

We really wanted to like this but the quality of food was overall poor I’m afraid. We dined early on New Year’s Eve so in their defence the ‘special’ menu may not be a true reflection of the wider a la Carte menu but then...More
